After heavy rain the night before, it was predicted the Taipa Speedway track would be heavy and slippery but wind and sun left the track drier than expected and sunny skies greeted racers on November 18. Multiple sliding mo- ments and spinouts throughout the day kept spectators entertained. The first spectacular spin was provided by Ray ‘he-who-dares-to-go- sideways’ Dare in round two. Dare’s spinout on turn three was just inches in front of Rob Weal’s B grade Buick. Shirl the girl Andresen led race three and survived a sideways slide in front of Tony the Stig Cree on the last lap to cross the line first. Round two’s C grade 20-lap dash was won by Daniel DeWaal. In round three pro- duction driver Rosalyn Steele and C grade driver Carmen Hallett came together on turn one that left Steele stranded on the corner and a restart ensued. In the final feature Z Taipa All-In Race, Dare led all the way to the chequered flag. Race day photos and videos can be found at freewebs.com/taipastock- andsaloonracing. Taipa Speedway’s next race meeting will be the annual New Year two- day extravaganza on December 29 and 30. Racing will include the New Year Jalopy Chal- lenge and the rough and tumble of Demo Teams contact racing. Taipa Speedway peo- ple will take part in the Kaitaia Christmas Car- nival with a static dis- play of cars at the Kai- taia A&P Showgrounds on December 1 from 1pm to 5pm. The South Rd gate will be open from 11am. If you wish to bring your car along, please contact club secretary Carole Teixeira on 09 405 9973 or email email@example.com .nz.

Club closing day November 18. The modified Ambrose competition was played in gusty weather, which proved no barrier to the top team of C Price, A Hathaway, H McKechnie, C Tanner, N Plowman and A Plowman who returned a stableford score of 57. Kaikohe Golf Club The Thursday school at Kaikohe is becoming a war zone with the playing conditions improving weekly and the scoring is really heating up. Last week was drawn pairs with every one wanting to be drawn with Denny Morrogh who shot an incredible 78 off the stick with 47 stableford points. Eddie Carlow was the lucky person with only 33 stableford. Honi Mihaka and Pete Smith were 2nd, Tuk Waititi and Whiti 3rd. There were 4 twos by Clem Lawrence, Denny Morrogh, George Penny and Pete Smith. Pete was the only one to putt his in, all the others chipped in and there was an eagle two on number 3 by Murray Fielding. Sunday had a poor turnout for the shootout which was won by Jim Harrison, well done Jim. BOWLS Bowls Far North Kerikeri men and women claim the centre fours title. The finals of the centre fours was held over two days, November 10 and 11. The men’s section was at the Kaeo Bowling Club. After the first day three teams remained: David Hood, Jon Young, Kevin Williams, Michael Savage (Keri) the 2 lifers; Peter Dorreen, Paul Huxtable, Barry Allison, Dennis Wishnowsky (Comb) and Dan Dickison, Shaun Haynes, Glen Saunderson, David Haynes (Okaihau) 1 lifers. The format played on a 2 life system was 15 completed ends oratimelimitof1hour45 minutes, no time limit for the final/possible final. In the first round Okaihau had the bye while David eliminated Peter and his team leaving a possible final between David and Dan’s team. This was a marathon game which took three hours but it was well worth it from a spectator’s view with stunning bowls from both teams. Itwasashametherehadtobea winner as both teams did themselves proud. However, David and his team prevailed, winning the title by the closest of margins 10-9 . In the women’s section: Lyn McKeating, Christine Hodren, Judy Boag, Ellaine Albury (Keri) 2 lifers; Viv Kahi, Gloria Bevin, Margaret Walters, Tania Tana (Hoki); Bunty Barron, Janice Allan, Patricia Rayner, Kaye McLean (Coops); Jill Phillips, Dorothy Hardy, Mavis Topia, Connie Pene (Comb) 1 lifers played at Kaeo Bowling Club on the second day. The opening round saw some good bowls from all players. Lyn beat Vivian while Jill eliminated Bunty and her team. In the final between the Combined team led all the way but on the last end they dropped six fatal shots losing to Kerikeri 17-14. They deserved a better fate as Jill and her team played some magical bowls prior to this match and also during the game. Congratulations to the winners and the runner-up teams who made this event such a pleasure to watch. Thank you to host clubs for the use of their clubrooms, facilities and greens and to everyone who made the event such a success.
