Extract from Bowls NZ website
A dedication to excellence and an unrelenting commitment to the sport have seen Anne and David Burrage honoured as the 2019-2020 Bowls New Zealand Summerset Awards umpires of the year.
It’s deserved recognition for the Wellington based duo, who have constantly impressed with their work ethic and passion for Bowls.
The husband and wife duo qualified as level 1 umpires in June 2016, graduating to level 2 national umpires the following April.
Across the 2019-2020 season the Burrages umpired some big regional events, including the Wellington Open Fours and Triples and the Bowls Specialist mixed 242 pairs. They also officiated at the Clubs New Zealand national Fours.
The Burrages have also gone beyond the call of duty with their willingness to assist Bowls Wellington to train other umpires.
The Burrages are also keen bowlers. They previously belonged to Tawa bowling club – and David was club secretary up until recently – but have joined Raumati Bowling Club since their move north.
