This years edition of the Auckland Year 1-5 singles saw a large Balmoral contingent hitting the greens across town.   The clubs had 7 men entered and 2 women entered.  

   Men     Women
   Allan Moyle      Chelsea Farley
   Aretm Chesnokov  Linda Farley
  Graham Farley  
   Odie Walter  
   Paul Griffiths  
   Paul Jerrom  
   Scott Harrison  

After meritorious efforts by all players, Balmoral saw Odie and Paul Griffiths and Chelsea progress through to post section on Sunday at Mangere B.C. with a couple of others narrowly missing out on count back.
In the 1st round of Past Section Paul Griffiths went down to Jeremy Brosnan (Glen Eden) 21-5. 
Odie continued deeper into the draw with a battling win over Mike Smith (Avondale), nabbing the win in the 20th end with a 3, winning 21-16.

Chelsea caught the eye in the first Post section round to progress into the semifinal .  From Auckland Bowls website.
"An excellent game of bowls was played between very new-comer Chelsea Farley (Balmoral Womens) and Paris Baker (Te Atatau Peninsula). Farley took the lead in the 9th end and held onto it to finish the game winning 21-18."

Chelsea then played Sheila Putu (Mt Wellington) in the first women's semi final and what a great game! 
Putu a second year bowler was 10-20 down in the 18th end with Farley, a first year bowler having charged into the lead. Putu was determined to not let Farley take the final end and played some stunning bowls to win the last 7 ends and came back to win the game in the 25th end with a 3 - the final score being 21-20.

Odie again had another end for end, tense and tight game to make the men's semi finals beating Gary Cotter (Pt Chevalier) , taking the final end to win 21-20.

The semi final against Adam Allan (Glen Eden) and Odie Walter (Balmoral) was a another close one, but Allen managed to hang on to a lead right to the end winning the game 21-13.
