BSI Women’s Novice Tournament – 2023

The BSI Women’s Novice Tournament was hosted by Gordan Head this year.  The weather was fine and the tournament was very well attended.  The top novices across the South Island clubs were competing in a 2 section 2 day round robin.  The top in each section then competed for 1st and 2nd place and the top 2nd in each section competed for 3rd and 4th place.

Thank you to David Gardner (the tournament convenor), the coaches, the markers and all the kitchen and other volunteers that made the tournament a success.
