Laurencekirk Bowling Club’s first open competition of the season took place on Sunday, May 8. Thirty two bowlers took part on what turned out to be a beautiful sunny day.
After a round robin competition to decide the quarter finals, two Laurencekirk members emerged as finalists. Both finalists produced some fine bowling before Bill Russell triumphed over Willie Robb by 9 shots to 3. ScotMid Cooperative kindly supplied the Club with vouchers to the value of £100 which were used to provide refreshments during the event.
