The weather proved favourable for two full days of bowling.
A Warkworth triples side took out the oldest bowls competition in Rodney this month.
The Kowhai Tournament, in its 35th year, was held at Bowls Warkworth on November 14 and 15.
The two-day competition saw Les Hatfull, Cathy Parsons and Ivan Pivac qualify for the main event on day one before winning it the following day on the grass green.
Runners up were Warren Seeque, Betty Baillie and Gerald Daniels of Orewa.
Third place went to a combined team from Leigh and Orewa of Stu MacDonald, Trish O’Malley and Scott Wilson.
Those who didn’t make the main draw headed to the carpet green for the plate and consolation events.
An Orewa side of Trevor Parker, Derek Button and Jennie Boylan were the plate winners followed up by Michael Broderick, Gary Robertson and Joan Broderick of Warkworth. The consolation winners were also from the host club. They were Francois Loubser, James Newlove and Jules Loubser.
A total of 20 teams competed this year from Warkworth, Mahurangi East, Leigh, Omaha and Orewa.
Elaine Herd and her Mahurangi East team picked up fourth place.
