On Sunday, 6 March, 2016 the fourth Johan Albertyn Memorial Trips Bowls Tournament was played at the Mooi River Country Club. The summer heat did little to curb the enthusiasm & fierce competitiveness of the participants.
Support for the event came in the form of teams came from Wartburg, Escourt, Pietermaritzburg, Howick, Creighton, Greytown & Ladysmith.. We had 22 teams participating in three games. In the morning two games of twelve ends each were played followed by one game of fourteen ends after lunch. A convivial mood pervaded throughout the day’s competition.

In addition to the session prizes, the top five teams were awarded prizes too. First place was won by Red Northie, Rex van Schalkwyk & Barbara Spurling from Maritzburg West Club in Pietermaritzburg. Second place went to Gordon Phipps, Droughty Hartley & Sharon Willey of Mooi River. In third was a team from Howick Club – Bill Dougherty, Jason Smith & Nicky Wallis. A team from Mooi River made up of Hugh Bennett, Gary Baleson & Kathy Boast came fourth. In fifth position was another Mooi River team consisting of Phillip & Durandy Uys & Toni Hanrahan.

The event was sponsored by Mooi Mec, Ivanhoe Farming, Value Fencing, Oakspings Dairy & JDM Trading.  Thanks to our sponsors for their ongoing support.
