Our Ladies Helen Robinson Invitation Triples was played on Friday 31 May.
Sadly due to the rain we only played half the normal number of games and stopped at lunchtime.
Despite this all the ladies were good natured about being so wet – and four teams managed to win all three of their games.
On a count back of shots the runners-up were a team from Shanks (M Taylor, J Geddes and J McKenzie) and the winners (again!) were
Hillington (Sandra Kerr, Helen Parrott and Norma Hood). Congratulations to them all.
Unfortunately due to the early finish, the family representatives of Helen Robinson were unable to attend so the trophy was presented by our Ladies President, Mary Brannigan.
Thanks to Anne Miller for the report and picture.

No one could tell me their names but rumour has it that they are Donald and Daphne (Daffy for short),
and they were both out for a DUCK!!
