On Tuesday 20th November two Canterbury Women's team headed up to Kaikoura to take part in the Majorie Gundry event, which is a women's representative event between Marlborough and Canterbury.
First held in 1968, this years event had a lot of meaning, being 50 years since the first time it was held. It was also the first time in three years that this event had been held - last played in 2015. The event was scheduled to be held in 2016, however two days before was the devastating Kaikoura earthquake. Having this event resurrected in 2018, 50 years since it was first played for, is a credit to Marlborough Bowls, who hosted the event at the Kaikoura Bowling Club.
This year, the results were exceptionally close. Both Teams won 6 games each which then meant it went down to points differential, with Canterbury coming out on top.
