Action on the green has been stepping up at Oban Bowling Club over recent weeks as Covid restrictions ease further.

Rink nights (Mondays and Thursdays), Friday Night Triples and Sunday competitions have all been well attended, with eight championship competitions also under way.

This Sunday the Millennium Triples was played out under blue skies with the action on the green matching the sizzling weather.

After winning a one-end shoot-out to progress from their group stage, Sandy Carr’s triple, including Anne Stewart and Marion Carr, lifted the trophy. With some awesome bowling on display, the trio beat Gilbert Mullen, Helen MacLean and Sandra Grieve in the final.

On the previous weekend Sandra Grieve, Ian Miller and Janice Fraser beat Helen MacLean, Jim Gunn and Colin Carmichael by a single shot to take the MacCalman Triples, while Colin Carmichael and Rosemary Miller beat Gilbert Mullen and Alan MacAlony to win the Dalriada Two-bowl Pairs.
