The recent Kingfisher Bowling Association (KBA) Novice Invitational produced exciting bowls at The Bell.
The competition, sponsored by 37@859 Consult (Pty) Ltd and All-In-One Catering Equipment, was started by Clive Edmundson in 2013 and was traditionally hosted by Margate Country Club.
Club Novices who won their sections in the KBA novice competition earlier this year are invited to play in the event and the field is then filled with the remaining Novices who took part in the KBA event.
The Novices invite a non-District Skip and compete in a two bowl pairs event on a 3-2-1 scoring basis over 18 ends per game.
The competition moved to The Bell this year with 24 Novices taking part. After a very exciting two days of bowls the results were as follows:
1st: Nossie Patterson and Alex Bukes (Skip) – Hibberdene
2nd: Anton Swanepoel and Bez Bezhuidenhout (Skip) – Hibberdene
3rd: Brandon Nicholas and Peter Clark (Skip) – The Bell
4th: David Nicholas and Hew Hodgson (Skip) – The Bell
