Oban Bowling Club held its AGM in the Dalriach Road clubrooms at the beginning of the month at which president Iain Boyd spoke of the highs and lows during another difficult season.

Although Covid restrictions had relaxed compared to the previous year regional and Scottish competitions were still unable to go ahead but a good turnout for the many club competitions kept members going throughout the summer.

Iain spoke of the sadness brought on by ‘losing several good friends of the club’ and members present took a minute of silence to remember those no longer with them.

Grateful thanks were paid to members of the club who gave up their time this season to keep the club running, in good condition, its members fed and watered and all those who have given their support during a difficult season.

Members then elected their committee for the year to come.

2022 committee: President, Iain Boyd; Vice President, Semple Barrie; Immediate Past President, Helen MacLean; Treasurer, Janice Fraser; Secretary, Anne Stewart; Match Secretary, Neil MacDougall; Child Protection Officer, Helen MacLean; Green Ranger,
Donald MacLean; Bar Convenor, Peter Park; Committee members, Sandra Grieve, Ian McCuish, Anne MacDougall, John McLaren, Rosemary Miller.
