A letter was read from James Paul, honorary secretary New Plymouth Bowling Club, stating that at a meeting of the skips during the bowling tournament lately held at New Plymouth, it was decided to ask the Association to try and arrange for next season a match between the North and South Island clubs, to take place at Wellington, which would be the nearest centre between Auckland and Dunedin or Invercargill.—lt was resolved that, as the tournament is to be held in Dunedin daring the time the Exhibition is open, and as a match is provided for similar to the one proposed, the Association do not see their way at the present time to comply with the request, and trust that the several bowling clubs in the North Island will be represented at the tournament.
Mr B. Harper, secretary Naseby Club, wrote enclosing Ll 5s for the Association, and stating that the club wou’d contribute towards the publication of a bowling annual for New Zealand.
The programme arranged by the sub committee appointed by the Association was read and approved. The dates fixed are the 23rd, 24th, 25th, 27th, 28th January, IS9O.
