For the first time this season it was factor 30 and Bermuda shorts on Campbeltown Bowling Club’s Stronvaar green as it hosted its new invitation triples competition for the Archie and Tracy Millar trophy.

The tournament was well supported by the two local clubs and others from mid-Argyll and beyond and the round robin sections of four matches were keenly contested.

The semi-finals featured two triples from CBC, Argyll BC and Vale of Leven BC, and these resulted in a final between Campbeltown’s Steven Dickson, Neil Maguire and Hugh Newlands and Vale’s Colin McIntyre, Grant MacLeod and Robert Scott.

A good crowd gathered around the green to watch the match and saw the Vale trio take control with MacLeod the stand-out performer gaining the shots that mattered to give his team a decisive win.

President Bobby Dalziel thanked Archie and Tracy for their generous sponsorship of the event and invited them to present the trophy and prizes.
