Milford Bowling Club's Rhonda Preston and Anne Dorreen won the North Harbour junior women's pairs, while their husbands Tim Preston and Graham Dorreen won the North Harbour junior men's competition. I understand this is a first, where husband and wife have won these titles in the same year,'' Graham says. Junior bowling compe- titions are for those who have been playing less than five years. Good mates Graham and Tim joined the Mil- ford club three years ago and a year later gave their wives membership, a set of bowls and some lessons for Christmas.
