Posted February 9, 2015 by Scrabo in Local Areas

A cold but dry Saturday in February  saw another get together of the circle of friends to contest  both areas bowls competitions.

A smaller turnout was a bit disappointing for Scrabo as they were this year`s organisers.

Maybe the Ireland v Italy rugby match had a little to do with it. Who knows!!!!!

Anyway , I set my recorder button and thoroughly enjoyed the match later with a glass of Sauvignon Blanc.

Naughty but nice!!!!!.  Now back to business.

Scrabo President Florence and Federation Chairman Margaret warmly welcomed all present and so the Competitions  began.

A big thank you to the members who represented their Institutes. The matches were closely contested and

accurate bowling was warmly applauded by those watching. Nice to see such warm spontaneous  support.

Scrabo  Area saw their final winner Carol Murray (Holywood W.I.) and runner up Eileen Wilson (Ballysallagh W.I.)

presented with their trophies and flowering  plant pot

Ards Area  saw their final winner Elsie Miskimmon (Portaferry W.I.) and  Dorothy Henry (Ballygrainey W.I.)

presented with their trophies and flowering  plant  pots also.

Ards Area President Pamela thanked all concerned in the organising  especially  St Galls Church and bowling

club for their assistance on the day .Two very brave men Mr Ballintine and Mr Esdale were congratulated on their umpiring skills

and Ballysallagh W.I. for their deelish afternoon tea.

It`s lovely to have these opportunities to meet,  chat and catch up with our  friends.

A lovely day for those who  came along  Thank you one and all.   Betty  / Ballyrogan W.I.
