The Kapakapanui Lions & Raumati Bowling Clubs combined to host another successful triples bowls tournament in support of Blind & Low Vision Kapiti (formerly Blind Foundation). 48 bowlers from beginners to experienced and including blind and low vision players enjoyed a beautiful day in the sun. Morning tea, a BBQ lunch and afternoon tea kept everyone refreshed while the raffle prizes and first, second and third prizes for the players kept everyone entertained. The three guide dogs in attendance bowled everyone over with their charm.
Ron Wezenbeek from Lions & John McBeth, Bowling Club President presented the cheque to Kaye Kay-Smith from Blind Low Vision who said the $2,000 raised would be used to purchase new sets of brightly coloured indoor bowls. She also said that they have indoor bowls games at 1pm on the second and fourth Mondays of the month at 6 Tongariro St and new participants are welcome.

Roger Matthews, Lions Club President said there would be another tournament next year as it will be an annual event.

"It's my face man
I didn't do nothing serious man
please I can't breathe
