The Burnside Bowling Club will once again host some of New Zealand’s finest bowling talent in this years event being held this weekend.
The prestigious $12000 tournament which has Harcourts as its major sponsor is without question one of New Zealand’s premier club events.
This years field includes a number of New Zealand title winners and New Zealand reps. Some of the main contenders will be Mike Kernaghan and Tony Grantham, Jo Edwards and Val Smith, previous winners Shaun Scott and Sean O’Neill, locals Kelvin Scott and Nathan Glasson, National Pairs winner Lance Pascoe and his partner Andrew Curtain , Burnsides Tayla Bruce and NZ Gold Star holder Lance Tasker, young guns Aiden Takarua and Selina Smith and a strong Burnside combination of Richard Hocking And Barry Williams.
There are many other very strong pairs and predicting a winner would be a very hard task.
Play begins at 8.20am on Friday with 4 games of 2 hours 15 minutes to be played so it will be a very long day for all involved and then continues through until finals on Sunday afternoon.
The Burnside Club invites any interested spectators to come along throughout the event free of charge to witness what is sure to be an outstanding three days of bowls.
