Two Bowl Mixed Pairs 2022

In difficult conditions compared to the week before we still managed to have a great day.

12 Teams competed in the round robin format. 3 groups of 4 played 14 ends per game. The winner of each group and the best runner up qualified for the semi-finals.

In the final were Emily Houston and her father Jamie against Alison Granger and Club President Jim Bruce. It was a close contest, but Emily and Jamie managed to get the shots required in the last couple of ends.

Commiserations to the beaten finalsts and congratulations and good luck to the winners,  who now represent the club in the Ayrshire Mixed Pairs later this month.

An enthralling final ensued and there was some fantastic bowling from both teams. It was a final befitting such a wonderful day and it went to the wire with a magnificent bowl at the last end trailing the jack into the ditch. This turned out to be decisive and the winning team was Robert McCartney and Sandi and David Wallace.
