19th July - Round 4 (A-League) & Round 2 (B-League) - RESULTS
Round 5 is all over with some top scores still being achieved. Well done to Denva Wren with a 300.18, Dave Fake on 200.11 and a 100.10 by Roy Herbison.
Going to the points table with this weeks added, Waikato ends up with a total of 73 after collecting 24 points on their double challenge last night. This gives a range for the top 4 teams from 73 down to Taranaki's 42 who also had a good collect of 14 points to sneak into the semi-finals.
The Division Two's range is smaller with the top 4 on a difference of 16. Good close competition. Good to see the Junior competitors in both divisions keeping up on good scoring.
The semi-final programme is attached, so good luck and all the best to all 8 teams.
Great shooting by Lanelle (100.8) and Shania (100.9), Titans Juniors. There are going to be big discussions over rule 5.2 For the B League. There is an Executive meeting before the next NDC, so WATCH THIS SPACE.

28th June - Round 4 - RESULTS
Sorry for the delay for the start of B League Competition, just sorting out a couple of hiccups. A very close start to this competition with only 8 points difference in the total.
Even though the Titians had to use a B Grader in the Graded Team and receive a 5 point penalty, they still had a win. The Junior Shooters shot very well for their first time in the NDC Team. Keep up the good shooting.
It seems as the year goes on the scores are certainly climbing. In the A-League Division One: 300.24 by Pratik Tailor (Wellington); five 200's: Helen Frieman 200.15 (Manawatu), Ray McCaw 200.13 (Canterbury), and three from Waikato - Tony Beaver 200.11, Rory McLeod 200.13, and Owen Bennett 200.10 (I think we should swab this team or see what they get fed before they shoot !!!!!!!); Dave Fake from Taranaki with 100.10 in his double.
As far as the points table goes, Manawatu is sneaking up the front with 57 Points, with Waikato and Hutt Valley not too far behind.
Divison Two is also getting some good top scores and we would like to see what the Nelson Juniors are on, Top three places in the Juniors - WELL DONE
The points table in Divison Two has the top two of Eastern Force and Southland Centurions within One point of each other.
Round Five will see some interesting theories for the rest to get into the top Four for the Semi Finals
( Shooter Scores will be posted as soon as they are available.)
7th June - Round 3 - RESULTS
Amended results are now attached below.
I made an error for the Southland Centurions Junior Score, and have now rectified it on this result sheet. Also I missed inserting John Shepherd's score of 298.17 being 3rd in the Top 5 of Division 2. I had him marked as 3rd on the Southland score sheet where I mark placings in red before I insert the names on the result sheet, but I missed John's name when doing so. My apologies John.
Division One this week can be seen as a bit one sided as 3 teams got a kick up the backside by getting a score of 0 each, this includes our team Taranaki. How do you even try to catch an oppostion, (Manawatu Marauders) when there are 9/100's shot in the open team? This includes a 200 each from Wade Mace and Jamie Bonis. Great scores. The team also cleaned all 3 sections and ended up with a total of 4994.260. Can only congratulate them and get them swabbed next time!
The Plainsmen had a double header against Canterbury Snipers and Hutt Valley Hawkes and still came away with no points. The other 0 was Wellington Tigers against Waikato Thoroughbreds.
In Division 2 Eastern Force had a good win against Marlborough Suns with the great help from Kirsten Birrell shooting a 300.18. Very well done.
The results from Wanganui Warriors/Otago Blue and Gold, and Southland Centurions/Nelson Gunz were very close with only 10 points separating both matches.
Keep up the good shooting everybody as there are only 2 more rounds in the round robin before the semi's. Also the B League start there rounds next NDC night. All the best to them
17th May - Round 2 - RESULTS
In Division One of this round there was some good scoring by some teams, as the total points show Manawatu Marauders sneaking away at the top with another three teams hanging around in the second place areas. Jamie Bonis's 200.11 and Sam Gooding's 200.10 are helping to keep the bonus points to good use. Also Waikato Junior Samantha Riddle with 100.8 and 100.7 gaining bonus points also.
Division Two are into real close scoring as Southland Centurions beat Eastern Force by only one point. The bonus points in this challenge did not help this time as Southland's junior Jordan Erskine's 100.6 matched the bonus point from Eastern Force with Fabian Sinclair's 100.6 also.
Marlborough's Regan Cowe shot well with 100.10 on his first card of the double.
Keep up the good scores as we look forward to Round 3.
26th April - Round 1 - RESULTS
Welcome to the first round of NDC for 2018. Some good scoring to start the season with Wellington Tigers off to a good start in Division One. One 200.12 was shot by Trevor Smith from Waikato.
Also Waikato Junior Samantha Riddle with her first 100.10 and Monique Sheffield with a close 99.9, another Junior from Canterbury, Sam Allison, with a 99.6. Congratulations to these shooters
In Divison Two Eastern Force has really kicked off the season with a maximum of 13 points but no bonuses. When you see the top scores for this Divison they just about take all the positions
All the best for the rest of the season.
Only the A-League teams shoot on this date and in the first three rounds. As there are only 3 teams entered in the B-League for 2018, their first match will be on 28th June so that both Leagues shoot their Finals on the same night.
