In a change to the usual format of President v Vice President, Treasurer v Secretary was played instead, with a victory for the Secretary. A big thank you to everyone who came along to support this event and make it a very enjoyable day to remember.

The club will be holding ‘Try Bowling Days’ on the second Sunday of each month from May until September starting at 2pm to encourage people to either try bowling for the first time, return to bowling after a break or just come along and enjoy a relaxing afternoon of bowling with refreshments at half time.

Everyone is welcome to join us.

Members of Dailly Bowling Club turned out in force to compete for the Wallace Sheddon Trophy on Saturday.

The well tended green and the dry summers day combined to make a fast paced bowling green for the members to compete on for this trophy.

John McWhirter and Barbara Wason were beaten by Liz Scobie and Fiona Connolly in the finals of this pairs match.

The club now looks forward to their next game on the 13th May at 1.30pm. New members always made welcome.
