Johnny Simpson Event 2021
As has become tradition, the club’s closing day featured competition for the Johnny Simpson Cup.
Simpson is widely regarded as one of New Zealand’s best All Black props who played in the late 1940’s and early 1950’s, but he was also an outstanding bowler. When he moved from Auckland to Paraparaumu to run a hotel, he joined the Kapiti Bowling Club (now Raumati BC), won several club and Centre titles and was elected to the position of President of the NZ Bowls Association in 1991.
Before our season’s championship trophies were presented, this year’s winners of the Johnny Simpson Cup were handed this prestigious trophy.
Winners: Steve Sargent and two first year players, Sue Veart and Allen Hutchison.
