2016 Championship Club Singles Winners together


Mens winner Steve Martin with Ladies winner Jan Leinster

Jan said she had taught Steve all he knows about bowls. The mothering goes back to when Steve joined the Mitre 10 team at 17 yrs of age. Back when Mitre 10 was situated in the main street where Giddy's Cafe is now. I asked Steve what he remembered of that time. Reply - Jan was the hottest chick in the building and we locked in the safe. Steve learnt a whole new language when Jan got out of the safe. Seems he did not remember the lesson as the closest he comes to swearing is "monkey" when the bowl goes its own way.

Club Championship Games

Jan said it was a hard game, she was holding 19 for 10 ends but Pauline kept at it narrowing the gap but finally conceded to Jan 25 to 21.
