A historic day today in the annual game between the Ladies and the Senior Gents when the ladies were victorious over the gents for the first time ever.
Despite a steward’s enquiry, the score of 73 shots against 70 could not be disputed.
There is absolutely no truth in the rumour that there has been a sudden increase in requests from the gents for non-playing membership, nor were numerous sets of bowls found in the skip in the club car park.

Thanks to Anne Miller for the picture.

The usual spectre of rain hanging over the ‘Willie Milne Trophy’ was fortunately banished for most of today, although there was still the odd bit of drizzle and damp greens to contend with.
Particular vote of thanks to our match secretary Ross Warrender who had to re-jig the draw to allow for some of the rinks being unplayable. No easy task, so well done to him.
Congratulations to the winning team of Ian Christie, Willie Hayden, Lenny Davies and Jim Craig and commiserations to the runners up, Allan Brittain. Brendan Kelly, Bobby Woolley and Jamie Cochrane.
Grateful thanks as always to the ladies in the kitchen who worked so hard to provide our nourishment throughout the day.
