Ten ladies from Oban Bowling Club travelled to Rothesay last Saturday to compete in the Argyll and Bute Women’s Bowling Association county semi-finals and finals.

After qualifying at the West Argyll finals, the Dalriach Road club had representatives in each of the four sections – singles, pairs, triples and fours.

In the singles, current Oban Bowling Club ladies champion Anne MacDougall was put out in the semi-finals by Rothesay’s Violet Westland, while the Oban pair of Mari Park and Elizabeth MacGillivray lost by a single shot to Sandra Stevenson and Susan Selkirk, also of the host club.

There were better fortunes for the Oban ladies in the triples and fours with both teams winning overall.

Winning Triple from left, Marian Carr, Anne Stewart and Rosemary Miller.

In the triples, Rosemary Miller, Marian Carr and Anne Stewart beat Christina Cunningham, Lesley Weir and Nicola Faulds, Bogleha Bowling Club, in the semi-final before seeing off a challenge from Stephanie Charker, Mavis Knowles and Joan Reynolds, Rothesay Bowling Club, in the final.

The Oban four of Sandra Grieve, Manju Nicolson, Emma Gargan and Kirsty Gargan beat Evelyn Chisholm, Barbara Duff, Susan Stewart and Nan Stuart,  Rothesay Bowling Club, in the semis and Alex Atkins, Mary Brooks, A M Houston and Allison Strachan, Dunoon Argyll Bowling Club, in the final.
