Paul Stier Memorial Match Report

The days leading up to the tournament were rainy and a bit wild, giving tournament organisers cause for concern, but then on the Sunday morning there was a rainbow over the club and some blue sky which meant two full greens could be in play.

The results were:

1st Jim Close, Raj Halka and Keith Prosser
2nd Billy F, John H and Brian Hughes
3rd Karen K, Karen S and Carol
4th Dave M, Mario and Murray
5th Chris D, Sean and Tee

Best last game winner Group 1 Siosiana, Yvonne and Sharon. Best last game winner Group 2 Su, Tanga and Tu

Consolation Group 1 Edward, Edz and Ema. Consolation Group 2 Parmesh, Carl and Ken

In recognition to the effort Paul put in to coaching new players there were some special awards just for the juniors:

Best Junior players: Eddie Jnr and Kara
Best Junior touches: Melissa and Sam N

Acknowledgements are due to all the people who helped it happen:

  1. Tournament sponsor Superior Glass/Brian Childs
  2. The bar staff and committee, cooks, bowls committee members Sharon and Janet, the Social and Greens committee
  3. Helpers at tent Sharon, Sandra, Shelia, June, Tony, and Agnes who looked after the raffles.
  4. Those who provided the food: Andrew, Tee, Bella, Moana, Rachel, and Shep just to name a few
  5. Shep, Rachel, Andrew and Moana for donating the trophy, medals and the prize money for the junior awards.
    And to all the other club members who helped out.

As Jim Close, the skip of the winning team said Paul was a good guy and we’ll remember him. The club sincerely hopes a day of great bowls and camaraderie amongst bowlers from all over Auckland was a good way to start doing that.
