Margaret Reber, founder of the Balmoral Women’s Bowling Club passed away on Friday 30th of October 2015.
She spent countless but enjoyable hours at the club across the full range of administrative roles, which was recognised by Auckland Bowls in 2010 with the award of Club Administrator of the Year.
Margaret was also a highly successful and competitive bowler in both the lawn and indoor disciplines, not only from her time since 1991 at the Balmoral Club but at her prior clubs and was still winning club championships until only a few years ago.
   


Margaret was loyal and intelligent with a penchant for organisation and was well known and well liked by members of both the Women’s and the Men’s club. She will be sadly missed.
