This prestigious 3 day tournament was held at Vistabella B.C. on 13-15 June, and played in a 2 wood triples format.
Together with good weather and fine organisation, the bowling was of a high standard with some very close results.
In the semi-finals was Tony French, Maggie Furness and Martin Foulcer of Vistabella against Sandra Kavanagh, Yvonne Mallaburn and Frank Close of Emerald Isle, which went into the 18th end with one shot between the teams, with the E.I. trio winning the battle.
The other semi was an all Vistabella game between Steve Pearson, Annmarie Stevenson and Ian Kenyon against Beryl Regan, Andy Leggatt and Mike Regan, who struggled against a team who were on top form.
The final of Ian’s trio against Frank’s was tooth and nail throughout the game culminating in equal scores after 18 ends, so an extra end was played, which Vistabella managed to hold.
An excellent competition, played in a competitive but friendly and sportsmanlike manner, for which thanks must go to everybody taking part.
