 The First Year Men's Singles was played out in early April.
When the dust settled from the 8 participants battling in the qualifying rounds, the 2 finalists to emerge were Neil Rowland and Bob Eadie.  The final was excellent with the two players putting on a game of quality bowls in front of a good crowd.
Neil Rowland got off to a strong start getting out to a 9-0 lead before Bob kicked into gear, roaring back into contention and then to lead 13-9 after 11 ends. From here the momentum swung back to Neil who picked off the next four ends with strong scoring plays to take the win 18-14.

2016/17 1st Year Singles Finalists L to R: Neil Rowland & Bob Eadie.

And that old name? Neil's Grandfather was President of the club from 1943 to 1945 and It is good to see Neil keeping his whanau's flag in bowls flying with pride.
