We recently reported in Latest News (on 21st March) the success of member Claire Bradburn at the Oceania Championships in Vanuatu. We now have some photos from the event which was held in less than ideal conditions! The slide show below shows (1) the winning New Zealand team (Claire is on the left), (2) the start of play on the second day, (3) the results of a tropical thunderstorm which halted the evening session and (4) efforts to drain the arena before the evening session was called off.
As we approach closing day bowls activities wind down but there are a couple more results to report.
