Well done to all our players who reached the Bowls Scotland National Championship this week.
Unfortunately we were unable to repeat the success of last year.
David Elliot in the ‘Gent’s Singles ‘ was our only player to reach the second round of competition before being knocked out.
It’s worth remembering just how difficult it is to get to these finals and how tough the opposition is when you get there.!

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.
