PHIL SKOGLUND - REST IN PEACE.........................................
It is with the deepest regret that we advise of the passing away of Phillip Skoglund today - one of New Zealand's greatest lawn bowlers.
Phil was a Bowls legend, the winner of eight national titles and winner of a World Bowls gold medal.
Over a number of years, the Kapiti Centre had much in common with Phil's views on where our sport was heading, and although we did not always agree, his vision was always for the betterment of the game of bowls - on and off the greens.
On behalf of all bowlers within the Kapiti Coast, we send our heart felt condolences to Phil's family during this time of grief and sadness.

2015 INTERCENTRE REPORT.................................................
We were lucky with the weather and spoilt with greens which were both consistent and very well tended.
The current format of this tournament being a section draw across all Centres provides a once a year opportunity for our teams to match themselves against Centres which they wouldn't normally compete against right from the start. This is hugely beneficial to the development of our players as they can find themselves playing against the best bowlers in the country right from day one of the event.
Of course the flip side of the coin is that on this occasion both our Kapiti teams found themselves drawn in two very tough sections and were both unable to qualify as a result.
The standard of play however was fantastic, our representatives worked very hard in every game to achieve results, the words 'blood sweat and toil' would not be far off the mark in describing the efforts of all the players who took part.
Of particular note were two games
Our men's Fours skipped by Rex took the Auckland fours to the last end in a nail biting game and without doubt there were four very worried opponents all of whom I understand have or do represent NZ. Well done team a brilliant game despite coming out on the losing side.
Our ladies Fours skipped by Janet O'Dwyer changed the course of the event on the last day of qualifying by beating Hawkes Bay this pushed Hawkes Bay into 3rd place and Central Otago qualified as a result together with Wellington in their section. Again the game was hard fought and our girls performed really well to beat a team which was on course to qualify.
The Selectors / Coaches / Managers should not go without mention - its a thankless task and on occasions very challenging - I believe throughout the year they all worked hard to find the right players for this event and their support and encouragement during the competition was invaluable to the players.
I was incredibly proud of all our team and their efforts throughout the event.
