Sunday Gala 23rd Aug

Sixteen bowlers took part in a pairs’ tournament on Sunday. Despite a heavy shower immediately prior to play, the afternoon turned out to be warm and, at times, sunny throughout play. Players played 8 ends in a fun and friendly pairs match. Then, after a short break, returned to the green to play 6 ends against another team. The cumulative number of shots scored by each pair were then recorded.

Celia Bellamy and Carolyn Labrum were the winning pair, with Lyn Taylor and Jacqui Ashley a close second.
