Around 35 members turned out at the Dalriach Road green on Saturday as Oban Bowling Club officially marked the end of the 2021 season.

Neil MacDougall blatantly attempts to put wife Anne off her game during Saturday’s Champion’s Challenge.

The day began with a challenge match between Gents Champion Neil MacDougall and Ladies Champion Anne MacDougall. After a highly competitive and often hilarious tie, Mr MacDougall claimed a victory over his spouse, although officials are still looking into the result following accusations that distraction tactics were in play on and off the green.

A presidents v vice presidents match followed and there was doubt about the winners of this one with president Iain Boyd’s team thrashing that of vice president Semple Barrie 51 shots to 40.

Following tea in the clubhouse, Iain thanked his committee and members for all they had contributed to making a Covid hindered season as enjoyable and successful as possible.

The green will remain open to members on a pop-in basis until Donald MacLean decrees otherwise.

The club will hold its annual general meeting on Saturday December 4, time to be confirmed.
