There were some excit- ing games at the Coopers Beach Bowling Club s championship pairs dom- estic tournament on March 22. Eighteen teams en- tered for four games of one hour on wins, ends and points. The top four teams then played sudden death of 45 minutes, with the losers out and the winners playing off. Top qualifiers included Jim and Pam Naylor 4 wins, 27 ends, 61 points. In the semifinals Bunty Barron and Dennis Wishnowsky eliminated Dave and Pam Roughton 9-4 while Jack Hughes and Judy Von Sturmer eliminated Jim and Pam 13-6. On to the final which was exciting for the spectators, with the lead changing several times. Jack was one up on the board going into the last end and down on the head he drew a shot which Bunty was unable to displace. This was a good day of competition and fun with eight husband-and-wife teams. Huffing and puffing: The Kerikeri Relay for Life team. A winning relay for life Commitment and dedi- cation was required for the 24-hour overnight Relay for Life fundraiser. Held this month in Whangarei it raises funds and awareness for the Cancer Society. The Kerikeri Huffers and Puffers team of 15 ran raffles and gained sponsorship from busi- ness, securing $5500 for their efforts -- the largest amount raised by a first- time team entry. The team was con- gratulated by Northland Cancer Society manager Margaret Curry for a fantastic effort. She has asked them to help raise awareness for the Cancer Society in the future. The Relay for Life is run in 21 countries and is the largest fundraiser for the Cancer Society. There are 17 events run around New Zealand. All the funds raised in Northland stay in North- land to aid with support systems the society has in place. Fine display of racing on Taipa track A small field of drivers and spectators turned out on March 20 at the Taipa track for what was an unforgettable day of racing. The newly formed Taipa Hooters Cheer team had their pom- poms working overtime cheering the drivers on as the competitors raced. The field was so small there were only four races per round, so the track committee decided to add another non- points round as well as racing more than one grade per race. This made for an excit- ing watch, as small C grade cars raced the more powerful pro- duction and supers. Rob Weal, aka Old Croc, lost a wheel over the bank and stopped dead on the track and, unfortunately for driver Tony Ova, didn t turn on his hazard lights. Ova collided with Weal and damaged his car beyond repair. This left Eli Tatnell the only C grade men s driver for the day and earned Tatnell some much-needed points. Super production saw Bruce Mallendine and Carol Teixiera take out the day s races in the newly built car. The club s next meet is the club champs on Sunday, before the Queen s Birthday meet onJune4and5. Visit www.freewebs. com/taipastockand salooncarclub/ for more information.
