Peter Scott has been appointed as the new Executive Officer of Bowls Taranaki. Peter has had a long involvement with bowls, which started when he joined the Hawera Park club in the late 1970s. He has been involved extensively as a player and an administrator over the years. He holds centre titles in both Wanganui and Taranaki and also has previously served on the executive in both provinces. In addition to Hawera Park, Peter has also belonged to the Okato, Paritutu and Waimea clubs, as well as clubs in Wanganui, Manawatu and Wellington. He has recently returned to New Plymouth, the city where he was born and bred, after leaving the province in 2012 for work opportunities in Wellington. While a muscle problem in the thighs means that Peter no longer plays bowls, his passion remains high. “My wife Sharon and I decided a while ago that we wanted to move back home. Taranaki bowls has been good to me. I had intended to stand for the Board, but when this position came up, I thought it was a good fit. I can see some exciting developments ahead,” Peter said. Bowls Taranaki chairman Grant Hassall welcomed Peter to the role. “Peter has an excellent appreciation of the game, many years of experience administrating it and a desire to help bowls in Taranaki move forward. We are sure he will make a positive difference.” Peter commences the Executive Officer’s role next week.

This Saturday, May 4, is the finals day for the champion-of-champions in all disciplines at Paritutu. The full programme for the day is:
