Pam Walker is working harder than ever these days at her bowls. Its no small feat to be selected for the Para Bowls team. She will be competing in the B6-B8 pairs alongside Te Awamutu bowler Lynda Bennett. Its Pam's first Commonwealth Games.

Needless to say we're all excited for Pam here in Central Otago. Her home club of Omakau has held a fundraising tournament as has the Alexandra club. 

We're super proud of you Pam... Go well from all of us.
