Kia ora kiwi friends, I'm from Whangarei and have lived in Portland for 17 years.
I'm glad to say the doc cleared me to play. King City bowls M-W-Sat at 10 am until Oct. Portland, at Westmoreland near Bybee, bowls at 6pm Weds . Glad to see Lincoln did well at rugby. A mate of mine coaches Reynolds. Have you met Jeff Arker yet?
We are having a new member get together next Saturday May 11,at 1:00 pm in the assembly hall,with a film,and hands on learning to play. It's at King City off the Pacific Highway at the Clubhouse (the green is at the rear side). We are putting together a phone/e-mail list so that people can tell us when they are free to come and try out. As they say "if you can nod your head and bend your back, you can play this game."
Yes, Wendy. We are hoping to get started bowling on or by April 27th. Ed Otte, a long-time resident of King City, off 99W, would be able to show you the ropes. We usually have a game on Mondays and Wednesdays as well as Saturdays when there are enough people there. We have lots of spare equipment too. Call me at [masked].Our season goes until October.
Wendy! I see we are both planning to go on this coming Saturday's hike! Finally, a chance to catch up! Yay!
