August 2022 Indoor Bowls Update

Tuesday 2 Aug, 2022

With the recent passing of David Philpott in May who was not only a life member of the Indoor bowls section, our club captain, selector and back bone of our section, he also had so much knowledge, help and advice on many matters and always gave up his time to help with anything.He had also been involved with the Canterbury Indoor Bowls Association for a very long time, not just his achievements on the mat, but with organizing and helping after the Christchurch Earthquakes and later the fire on the Association Hall. He is very sadly missed and will be hard to replace both at Hornby and on the Canterbury Indoor Bowls Association. RIP Dave.

On a brighter note, David Bullock who is president of the Canterbury Indoor Bowls Association and vice chairperson for the Hornby Indoor bowls section recently received a Queen’s Service Medal from the Governor – General of NZ for all his services to Indoor bowls Administration.

Dave is a life member of CIBA and Ellesmere Bowling club, is a National Umpire along with all the work in running the Association, and all the involvement associated with the Christchurch earthquakes, fire on the premises and day to day running of the Association. Congratulations Dave. Well deserved.
