Ellon & District 41 Club members keenly contested its Annual Indoor Bowls Championship Knock-out Competition at Newburgh-on-Ythan Golf Club on January 17. With 14 contenders, Championship winner was Edwin Duncan with Jim Arnott runner-up.
Fred Watson said: “This was again a most enjoyable evening, with Edwin just beating me in one of the semi-finals! Barrie Seddon organised the evening and it was a fun event with one or two ‘twists’ to the usual knock-out competition. Barrie had provided, as well as the main competition, a route to the ‘booby’ prize whereby the loser of play-offs was a winner and progressed further along this route. Best loser was George Manson, who proved a worthy winner.”
“I’ll try to do better next time “ commented George. “My prize, a most colourful ‘bowl’, easily seen as a target, will help me to practice.“
Barrie thanked staff of Newburgh-on-Ythan for facilitating the evening.
