Big Win for 6th year Bowler Nikki Milne of Omakau Bowling Club

 

We're all just as excited in Central Otago as is Nikki Milne. On Saturday and Sunday 21 & 22 January Nikki played superb bowls taking out Debbie Jackson (Arrowtown)  in the semi and Jane Anderson (Queenstown) in the final of the Open Women's Singles. 

 

The season has been very successful for Nikki so far with a win in the Alexandra Fives team and a win in the CO Fours.

 

Next weekend Nikki makes her debut in the senior team at the Southern 6 tournament in Dunedin.
