STONY BATTER HISTORIC RESERVE, Gun emplacement tunnel guided tours. See fortstonybatter.org.nz. Fundraiser feature: The Wai Wai Girls, Raewyn Neilson, Sarah Williams and Marg Graydon will be on stage at the Waiheke Bowling Club Variety Show. Wai Wai fun show The Wai Wai Girls will continue the drive for a new bowling green at a var- iety show fundraiser on March 31. The popular trio will perform at the event at the Waiheke Bowling Club on Marama Ave with profits from the even- ing going towards resurfacing the club green. Bowling club social committee mem- ber Raewyn Neilson says the project will cost $180,000. The green has had it. We are strug- gling along, it s an astro turf that the club got quite a few years ago second- hand and it cost a lot at the time. But when you bowl now the balls don t quite travel straight. The club has been trying to raise the money and has about $16,000 in the kitty so far. What we really need is a benefactor, Mrs Neilson says. We d be happy to name the green after the individual or business, or keep it confidential. What is scheduled for the variety show will be a surprise, Mrs Neilson says. We always do something different to keep people on their toes. She promises the evening will be full of fun and will showcase plenty of island talent -- and she has an off-island sur- prise lined up. Entry to the March 31 evening is $30 including a two-course meal, or $10 standing room only. The event will also be screened in the clubrooms which will have a $2 entry on the door. Phone 021 889 040 to book. Tickets are limited.
