Wednesday saw 48 lawn bowl-
ers turn up to participate in the
informal series of Wednesday
afternoon bowls games, fondly
known as Big Wednesday''.

and enter their names. Organ-

Two brief games are played,
with a break for afternoon tea,
and points are awarded for vic-
tory on the green plus just turn-
ing up and playing.
These points accumulate
towards the end of the season
when prizes will be awarded at
a social function and trips are
planned to other bowling clubs
such as Marton, for example.

The afternoon's play is con-
ducted on a friendly level and
provides a chance for some
players to hone their skills and
an ideal opportunity for those
interested in trying the sport
out for the first time to get
along, be provided with a set of
bowls, get some help and
pointers from established
players and learn how to play
the game in a social
Casual is the dress style and

Manfeild is set to see the best of the

tourers Championship series blasts
into the home of the New Zealand
Latest news from the new control
formula delivering the fastest V8s to
compete in a domestic series in New
Zealand is that a top Australian
touring car identity, Cameron
McConville, will be pitting his skills
against the best Kiwi drivers.
The New Zealand star lineup is rich,
including household names Greg Mur-
phy, John McIntyre, Craig Baird,
Kayne Scott, Andy Booth, Daniel
Gaunt and Paul Manuell.
The addition of Cameron
McConville, who is well-known and
highly-regarded by his peers, will
simply further enhance the attraction
of this exciting new category to
motorsport fans who identify Manfeild
as the best place to see the finest motor
racing action,'' said Manfeild chief
executive Heather Verry.
The V8SuperTourer concept has
been the talk of motor racing circles for
some time and everyone is extremely
keen to see the cars in action.
Manfeild has a huge summer motor
racing schedule ahead, not least being
the New Zealand Grand Prix on Febru-
ary 9 to 12, which is traditionally our
biggest race meeting.
Hosting the V8SuperTourers on
April 27 -- 29 as well, is just another
Walkinshaw Racing endurance
driver McConville has signed with
MPC Motorsport to drive a Holden
Commodore VE in the series.
The Manfeild race is the third of four
sprint rounds, following the opener at
Hampton Downs on February 17 to 19
and a meeting at Powerbuilt Raceway
(Ruapuna), Christchurch, on March 30
to April 1.
The sprint events precede three two-
driver endurance races later in 2012.
The schedule has been designed to
avoid any clash with the BNT NZV8s,
the flagship tintop category of the
national motorsport calendar also
appearing at the NZGP, and next
year's Australian V8 Supercars events.
