The last couple  of weekends have been busy  
for both the  Men's and Women's club with each  having teams playing across the greens of Auckland in the pairs and Fours events.
Four Men's teams  and one Women's team entered the Pairs event this year, and while some wins were registered none of the teams were able to progress out of section play on Saturday.

  • Steve Kirwan /Terry Barrett - 2 wins in section play
  • Artem Chesnokov/Scot Harrison - 2 wins in section play
  • Paul Jerrom/ Graham Farley - 2 wins in section play
  • Allan Moyle/Odie Walter - 1 wins in section play
  • Linda Farley / Tessa Farley - 1 draw in section play

Two Men's team were entered in the Fours event  this year. The John James skipped four (Odie Walter,  Allan Moyle & Graham Farley)  posted 2 wins in section play, they however missed out to the Peter Puschmann skipped  St Heliers combination in qualifying out of their section.

The second team  of Artem Chesnokov, Steve Kirwan, Scott Harrison and  Terry Barrett, collected 3  close fought wins in qualifying to head their section.  Sunday  saw them play out at the event headquarters, St George BC in Papatoetoe.  It proved to be  a day of battling with our near neighbour club,  Carlton Cornwall.  The first match  against the Nick Krajancic  skipped Carlton combination saw the Balmoral team play very well and run out winners 17-7.  Their Quarter-final reward was a match up with the Rob Ashton skipped Carlton combination with Petar Sain, Vladimir Marsic, Tony Garelja.  The Balmoral team fell away  in this match and were well beaten 7-23. 

Pleasing to see good numbers from the Club getting involved with the Auckland events and building up their experience and competitive game time.
