For the first time this season, Campbeltown Bowling Club welcomed visitors who took part in the Donald McLean Contractors-sponsored open pairs.

Once again the weather was favourable for the recent contest and some great bowls were played.

The semi-finals saw Gavin Mclachlan Junior and Lee Allen against Robert Todd and Angus Brodie and Shirley Bannatyne and Jimmy Anderson taking on Ryan Mclachlan and Scott Mclachlan.

The final was a Mclachlan brother shoot-out with a pepper of Allen but, after some superb bowls, it was Gavin and Lee who lifted the trophy.

President David Brown said: ‘Congratulations to them both. We hope to see them back defending their title next year. I would like to thank Donald McLean for his generous sponsorship of the tournament, Malc Mitchell for the green, Robert Todd and his selection committee for running the competition, the ladies in the bar and kitchen for keeping us fed and watered and everyone who took part in what was an amazing day.’
