This year’s Christmas Hams Bowls Tournament saw
players have a great day of bowling and socialising.
Taihape Bowling Club president Les Judd said, ‘‘I
think the main reason for such a great turnout is the
afternoon tea. They don’t get anything like it any-
where else so we owe our ladies special thanks for
The 16 teams of fours played top bowls throughout
Dave Harris’ team from Aramoho took home a ham
each as the winners of the day. Peter Lewis’
Wanganui East team were in second place and took
home a half ham each and Laurie Bismark’s Marton
team took home the bacon.
Other teams were from Hunterville, Raetihi and
‘‘It was a beaut day, so enjoyable that all the teams
re-entered for next Christmas,’’ Mr Judd said.
‘‘We now have a waiting list because the most we
can cater for is 16 teams.’’
The next tournament at Taihape is the Christmas
Cheer on December 17.
