Section play took place over the past two days and teams had to win four out of six games to progress to the knockout phase.
Of the 100-plus men’s teams competing, more than 40 teams made it to play in the weekend.
They boasted some big names, including teams skipped by Andrew Kelly, Mike Kernaghan, Pat Houlahan, Gary Lawson and Shaun and Terry Scott. Dunedin’s Grant Stumbles and Rodney Fleming made it through.
Teams would now play 18-end knockout games throughout the district with the finals set for Alexandra Bowling Club tomorrow afternoon.
Just over 20 women’s fours teams have made it through from just over 60 teams.
Jo Edwards made the cut along with Sandra Keith, while Mandy Boyd and local hope Margaret O’Connor also made cut.
