Strong entries for centenary tournament

The Bannockburn club has drawn players from far and wide to its tournament to mark 100 years of the club.

The club will host a tournament over the next two days which will involve 28 teams of fours.

The tournament has attracted some big names, and former New Zealand representative Gary Lawson will line up. Top Dunedin bowler Mike Kernaghan will also feature in the event, as will former national representative Shayne Sincock.

Home-town boy Shaun Scott will be part of a team including Alexandra’s Bill Clements while Jim and Terry Scott will also line up.

Bowlers have come from as far as Auckland for the tournament which will begin this morning, with games to be played at Bannockburn and also at Cromwell.

The teams will play six rounds and the top four at each green will meet on Sunday in a knockout format to decide the winner.

With $10,000 in prize money there will be plenty to play for.

A representative tournament in Christchurch and a pairs event in Gore have had some impact on entries but it is a high-quality affair.

Former Highlanders coach and current Japan coach Jamie Joseph will hold a question-and-answer session as part of the celebrations.
