The Tri Nation Event which was played on 21st April, 2014 at Blacktown AMF was a big success. All bowlers and visitors enjoyed the games.
We had 6 bowlers on each team for Argentina, Australia and New Zealand for both men and womens teams.
Mens Tri Nation – 1st Australia - 37 points, 2nd Argentina - 25 points, 3rd New Zealand - 22 points.
Womens Tri Nation 1st Australia - 43 points, 2nd New Zealand - 33 points, 3rd Argentina - 8 points.
A great win for Australia.
That night we had a Presentation Night and the men all received a medal each and the team received a beautiful trophy which was sponsored by NABS.
The women also received medals and the team received a trophy donated by Sydney Stars Deaf Tenpin Bowling Club.
The Argentina bowlers had a wonderful time here in Australia. They toured Darling Harbour, the Opera House, Aquarium and Wildlife Museum. They also did a Harbour Bridge Climb. We took them to the Blue Mountains and Canberra. They enjoyed every minute. It was sad to see them leave.
The Argentineans went to New Zealand after Australia to compete in the Tri Nations over there. 11 bowlers and fans from Australia also went to New Zealand so they got to spend some extra time with the Argentina bowlers.
New Zealand competition results:
In the Tri Nation competition in New Zealand in the mens competition 1st Australia - 34.5 points, 2nd Argentina - 30 points, 3rd New Zealand -19.5 points.
In the womens competition 1st Argentina -11 points, 2nd Australia – 9 points , 3rd New Zealand – 7 points.
It was a big 2 weeks and we were all very tired but it was worth it.
On behalf of the Sydney Stars Deaf Tenpin Bowling Club I would like to say a huge ‘thank you’ to NABS for their very kind sponsorship. It was much appreciated.
