President's
Charity

Trophy
Presentation
The final act of the 2017-18 season on the Burnside greens was played out this afternoon under clear blue
skies as threatening cloud skirted the city. A southerly storm was forecast for mid to late afternoon but 72
players enjoyed warm and relatively calm conditions. 24 triples teams competed for the President’s Trophy
on 12 rinks playing 4 games of 6 ends each. Three 4 game winners emerged after some excellent play.
Pam Clark skipped the winning trio ably supported by Cameron Wood and first year player Michael
Weeks
. This completed a successful week for Michael who on Monday won the final of the Handicap Pairs
with
David Crombie. The team of Club President Alan Bryce, Neil Anderson and Judith Watson was
narrowly relegated to runner up on differential while
Keith McFarlane, Pat Seear and Brian Southen
were popular third place prize winners.

The entry fee to this event was a donation to the President’s nominated charity which this year was the
Prostate Research Foundation. Added to this total were the proceeds from a corner to corner competition
won by
Peter Bartosh and Judy Davidson.  Prizes for the two contests were generously donated by club
members and this meant that $510 was presented to the charity’s representatives at the function that
followed.

This function incorporated the presentation of trophies for the season by Life Members,
Mort Young and
Don Bisman with photos taken by camera man AJ. Alan welcomed back Tayla Bruce and Bruce
Wakefield
, who together with Mandy Boyd represented NZ at the Commonwealth Games. Jan Harmon
and her helpers turned on a great afternoon tea and the 2017-18 season for most was over.

Several of our players however, will be involved in the Centre Finals at Woolston Park Club next weekend
and deserve and would appreciate our support while
Mike Small, Barry Williams and Richard Hocking
will travel to Auckland to play in the Bowls NZ National Club Triples Finals on Monday. Winter bowls will start
soon in the dining room so watch this space.....

By the way large drops of rain fell briefly at 6-00 pm as a curtain raiser to the southerly front at 8-00 pm
which brought hail, rain, lightning and thunder for a short period. Today we dodged a bullet......

England
Presidents
Tour
Burnside’s President, Alan Bryce, welcomed the Bowls England Presidential Tour Party on to Davie Green
under threatening cloudy skies and in cool temperatures. Led by Bowls England President, Bill Smith, the 48
strong Tour Party included nearly 30 present and past presidents of clubs, county and national bodies and
came from 15 counties – a truly representative group.

After two days of rain and cold, early Saturday morning was showery and gloomy but with a forecast of
clearing skies. Heads up to the forecasters they were right! Wind at zephyr level, slowly warming
temperatures and no moisture resulted in relatively pleasant overhead playing conditions.

As Burnside was also headquarters for Bowls NZ’s Intercentre National Championship only one green was
available for play. To maximise the number of players, green keeper Glen Miller, prepared nine rinks on the
Davie Green enabling 18 fours to participate in the contest. As per usual the green ran true and fast. Each
game consisted of 18 ends with each team having two power play (double points) ends. This was a colourful
scene with blue, white, red and green dominating. All 72 players appeared to enjoy their games with lots of
witty and supportive comments and good company. Many of the games were very even and for the record
the English Tour Party won three games to Burnside’s six.

After two speeches and exchange of gifts, lunch was served in the upstairs lounge where we were joined by
Bowls NZ President, Jeanette Sinclair. This lunch prepared by Jan Harmon and her team of helpers, was
enjoyed by all.

This was the last full day in NZ for the Touring Party. In their three week tour they have seen parts of NZ that
many Kiwis have yet to experience. Alan wished Bill and his party safe travels homewards and the hope that
they may return one day. When home they will be starting a new outdoors season on slightly slower greens
than those played on throughout NZ but the intention will be the same – draw the shot!
Many thanks are due to Burnside’s players and to all those members who contributed to the success of this
visit.

Men's
Championship
Singles
It was a great day to be in Bruce Wakefield's shoes today at the Burnside Club. Bruce, Richard Hocking
and last years singes champion,
Hamish Wilson all entered the day with one life left to determine the
winner of this years event. Richard by virtue of his win over Hamish yesterday received  a bye into the final.
Bruce and Hamish battled first to see who would meet Richard in the final. Bruce played a very solid game to
get in front early by 15-7 before Hamish fought his way back to get within a couple of shots. Bruce however
recaptured his earlier form and won this semi final 21-17.

In the final Richard started the strongest and got out to a 10-4 lead before Bruce fought back to lead 12-11.
The rest of the game remained very close with no more than two shots separating the players. The scores
got to 19 all before Bruce got the final two shots to win 21-19 and claim his first singles title at Burnside.
Bruce is certainly showing strong form as he moves towards leading in the New Zealand Disabled Triples
team at the imminent Commonwealth Games. Congratulations to all players involved and best wishes to
Bruce as he represents Burnside at the Centre Champion of Champion event at Parklands tomorrow
morning.

Blind Bowler
Makes History
At Burnside
Blind lawn bowler Deane Robertson (with Director Kevin Smith) made history on Saturday when he
became the first blind player to play in the Christchurch Centre open competition inter club representing the
Burnside club. Robertson played lead in the Development Triples competition in a team skipped by fellow
club member
Chris Iggo. Along with other first year players Warren Baxter (for the morning game) and
Matt Small (for the afternoon game) the team secured two wins from two matches against Elmwood (18-8)
and Parklands (14-10).

Opposition players admired Robertson's courage in participating in open competition and also were in awe
at the consistent high standard of draw bowls he played. Robertson's vision capability is, that in a blurred
fashion, he can see objects that are less than 0.3 of a metre away so he delivers his bowl to a point at his
director's foot. With information provided by the director he then adjusts the speed at which he delivers his
following bowls. Robertson also has balance difficulties so he delivers his bowls from a kneeling position. In
November after playing bowls for only two months Robertson won the New Zealand championship singles
title for his division at the NZ Blind Lawn Bowling National championships . When asked what he thinks about
the sport of bowls Robertson breaks into a big smile and replies " I can't get enough of it. I love it."
Robertson is showing that he not only has a big future in blind bowls but also in all competitions.

Festival Bowls
2018
Grey skies and a cold, strong and at times very blustery south westerly wind greeted the 38 players who
(bravely) stepped on to the Orchard Green for the first Saturday fixture in 2018. The event followed the
popular Festival Bowls format with three fifty-minute, two-bowl triples games with each team declaring a
power play end in each game. At times it was difficult in the conditions to control bowls which seemed to
have minds of their own. Despite this everyone seemed to enjoy themselves and experienced some success
in their results or at the very least managed to snare a chocolate wheaten and in addition in many cases a
vanilla cream.

Two players won all three of their games with
Beryl Heperi winning first prize on a count back from Kevin
Maguire
. Pat Bonham with two wins and a draw secured third place narrowly from Jack Trengrove and
Andy Cockroft. Denise Terrinoni and Jan Harmon headed the large number of two-game winners to
take sixth and seventh places respectively.
Lyn Martin and Ken Reid were overwhelmed to win the lucky
losers prizes until they opened the packets and visions of fine dining vanished to be replaced by that of a
scoop of chips.

Just as the tournament ended the wind abated....

Day One
Results
Monday at the Mount Maunganui Bowling Club was a fun and successful day for the two players from the
Canterbury Blind Bowling Association. Tom Boyd (Chris Iggo, Director) and Deane Robertson (Kevin Smith,
Director) were competing in their debut National Blind Bowling Championships. This is after playing bowls for
only two months. The players and directors were dressed impressively in their red and black shirts which
had been generously provided by Bowls Canterbury. Their dress code received many favourable comments.

Tom competes in the B4 division which is for players who largely have "tunnel vision".  In his right eye he
has only 25% vision and that is also often blurry. His left eye is almost no vision. Deane competes in the B2
division as he can only see anything up to a metre away and that is always very blurry. He cannot see
beyond that. There are only small numbers competing in each division but it must be remembered that
qualification for these events requires that one has some significant vision impairment.  You also need great
courage to put yourself out there and take part.

Both players showed their great courage on the green on Monday. Tom has only a field of four to compete
against and played two games on Monday with a further two to be played on Tuesday.  He played very well
to win his first game 21-9. In his second game he came up against a very experienced player from Hamilton.
Tom was down 10-2 but played excellent bowls to fight back and be in front 15-13 playing the last end.
Despite Tom having a close bowl only two feet away the other player managed to draw three shots inside
that for Tom to go down 16-15. He will play two more games on Tuesday and the challenge to win both
would place him in at least the runner up position.

Deane is playing in a division of nine players and played four games on a sunny hot day. He finally came off
the green at 535pm after nearly eight hours on his feet. During the day he drank nine and a half litres of
water! Deane was also delighted to win his first game against a player who had played blind bowls for
around 25 years. This player had previously played blind bowls for both England and New Zealand. Deane
was down by four shots and then five shots at different stages but also fought back to win 17-15.  He came
back down to earth with a 21-5 loss in the second round against the vastly experienced perennial winner of
the event. In his last two games Deane won 21-2 and 21-12.  This fantastic effort has guaranteed him a
place in the semifinal today.  

We look forward to another fun and successful day today. Whatever the outcome both players have
certainly done themselves proud.

Many thanks to Bowls Canterbury who have ensured that the Canterbury Blind Bowls representatives at the
NZ Blind Lawn Bowling Championships will be flying the glorious red and black colours next Monday and
Tuesday in Mt Maunganui. Great shirts and jackets have been made available to the team.

Tom Boyd (Director Chris Iggo) and Deane Robertson (Director Kevin Smith) will be playing in their first
national championships. Both Tom and Deane have only been playing bowls for a few months but have
been practicing hard at the Burnside Club. They are keen to find out what they can do against their peers
from the North Island who have been bowling for a much longer time. Both will play only in the singles event
where they will play 7-8 games against players who have  similar level of visual impairment to themselves.
Deane will compete against the B2 players and Tom the B4 players. Best wishes for a successful and fun
time.

Blind Bowls
Tournament
In glorious sunshine nine members of the Blind Foundation were supported by eleven volunteers to enjoy a
fun Sunday launching blind bowls in Christchurch. This event was sponsored by the Fendalton New World
and members  came from as far afield as Hastings, Oamaru and Ashburton to take part at the Burnside
Bowling Club. This was a day for folk of all ages with the youngest player being thirty seven and the oldest
being in her nineties! All the sighted supporters were inspired by the courage, determination and
competitive spirit shown by the visually impaired players. They were certainly true to the New Zealand Blind
Lawn Bowling Association ethos of "don't let what you can't do stop you from doing what you can".
Many thanks to all who took part.  

Another indication of the special spirit of this community occured when all prize winners donated back their
cash prizes to support two of the local members, Tom Boyd and Deane Robertson, who are travelling to
Mount Maunganui at the end of November to compete in their debut National Blind Lawn Bowling
Championships. They have only been playing for a month but they want to compete! Great generosity is
alive and well.

Saturday 30th September 1.30pm – 2 Bowl Triples with drawn teams,
Click
here for teams.
The tournament was played under grey cloud initially but ended in warm
temperatures under clear blue skies. 78 players in 26 drawn teams enjoyed an
afternoon of three games of two bowl triples on greens expertly prepared by
greenkeeper Glen Miller.

Only two teams achieved three wins with Estelle Jarvis skipping Neil Andersen
and Don Lyall to an impressive trophy winning three wins, 21 ends and 35 points.
Almost as impressive on the Laing Green was the triple skipped by AJ van
Hasselt with Ken Reid and Kevin Harris. This team achieved three wins but only
15 ends and 21 points.

Meanwhile on the Orchard Green mayhem ruled the day with everyone winning
something but no one winning all three. Neil Cornelius, Cliff Johns and Shirley
Clark emerged from the ruck with two narrow wins and a hard fought draw to win
the green. Dave Crombie, Brian Burnie and John Pope scored a stunning win in
their last game to secure the runner up spot with two wins and lots of ends.

For some afternoon tea on the run was the highlight but all in all this was another
good  day out on the greens!

Winners were
Don Lyall  Estelle Jarvis and Neil Andersen

New Season
Trophy
Under clear blue skies in pleasant warm conditions, but with a breeze that reminded everyone that autumn
had not yet deserted us, 76 players stepped on to the greens at Burnside to welcome in the 2017-18
bowling season. The greens were praised by all for their speed and trueness of line.

Thirteen rinks were used for the two bowl triples event which was played under the Festival Bowls format. In
this format each player over the course of the three games plays with eight others and competes against
nine other members. Festival Bowls is a great way for mixing club members and is an effective and fun
competition to introduce those new to Burnside to their club mates.

The trophy was decided by results taken over the two greens. The winners never played each other and
indeed could have played on different greens. The winning and runner up teams consisted of the most
successful skips, seconds and leads – all of whom had three wins in their different combinations. Sounds
complicated but in practice quite simple!

Winners were;
Trophy;
Tracy Wilkinson Lead 3 wins, 17 ends, 39 points,
Peter Hall Second 3-16-41,
Ross Bell Skip 3-17-27
Runner up;
Paul Franks L-3-14-36, Philippa Johnston Sec-3-16-36, Alan Bryce Skip-3-16-39
7th
Vincent Chia 3-16-38; 8th Kevin Rowe 3-14-34; 9th Cameron Wood 3-16-32
Other prize winners with 2 wins and a draw were
Graham Tate, Neil Cornelius and Rhonda Reid

Make sure of your entry for next week’s Festival Bowls event (23rd September) which is being organised by
Arjan van Hasselt and Ken Reid. This event promises to be a standout and will certainly be different and lots
of fun – NOT TO BE MISSED!
