With rainy weather covering most of the Wairarapa area , it was fortunate that Martinborough was spared the inclement weather for this occasion. All players enjoyed a fun day of bowls on the clubs premises in what has become a very popular event on the bowls calendar .
Winners of the day were Steve Shaw , Hayden Frew and the mercurial Peter ” Rabbs” Ireland .
Thursday business house twilight triples has had mixed fortunes with the weather and organizers are hoping for a little more stability on that factor in the coming weeks . Play commences around six pm and anyone interested in can be at the club at 5.30 .
