Explaination of Events:

Amalgamation Cup: The Amalgamation Cup is usually played four times in the season either triples of fours depending on numbers. Dates as listed above. Wins and ends are combined to find the overall winner at the end of the competition, sometimes it comes down to ends. The cup was donated by Tom and Marie Simpson in 1996 to celebrate the amalgamation of club between the mens and womens sections. For many years the men were unbeatable and have won 10 times to the womens 4 times. However in the last 6 years the women have caught up and are currently leading in the competition this year.

Parkwood Cup: This trophy was donated by Parkwood Village to the Waikanae Beach Bowling Club when the club celebrated its 50th jubilee in 1996. Traditionally it was mixed fours played over 2 days and is awarded to the best performing Waikanae Beach team. It can be reduced to one day's play but it must always be mixed and preferably teams of fours. Outside teams are encouraged with normal gala prizes and conditions applying but they cannot win the Parkwood Cup.

Norm Allen Cup & Barometer events: The annual clash between our club and Waikanae. Two events are played – the Norm Allen cup for the men, which has been played annually for the last 30 years and The Barometer for the women, which has been played every year for the past 40 years.

The Hodder Plate: The Hodder Plate was donated by Keith & Irene Hodder in 1966, both former presidents, always men verses women over one day. It used to be played on the day of the Christmas party and was 21 ends. It was changed in 2000 to 16 ends and played prior to Christmas

The Bogisch Cup: John Bogisch, a long standing member of the club, donated this cup in 2001 to acknowledge the winners of the Men's and Women's Junior Champions. After winning the Men's Junior's in the 2001-02 season John then played Jenni Patterson, who had won the Women's Junior's, and so started the Bogisch Cup. Jenni won the game that fist year.
