A Lansdowne team skipped by Jean Paku used home advantage to telling effect when Bowls Wairarapa held their WBS open triples tournament at the Lansdowne Club last weekend.
Paku, a long-time provincial representative, combined with Sue Sherwood and Flo Watkins to win the women's division from the Greytown combination of Mavis Jones (skip), Betty Scott and Margaret Marshall. Paku edged ahead when it counted most in a close contest.
Winners of the men's division were the Masterton team of John Claydon (skip), Gerry Harettonge and Warren Fisher. They played Dave Murray (skip), Steve Willis and John Williamson in another tight match.
