Canmore Ladies recently held their open pairs tournament.

The final was contested by Trixie McKay and partner Mary Thoms from Arbroath Bowling Club against Julie Gilbert and Margaret Lindsay from Carnoustie. The early ends were close and competitive but a serious mistake by Julie when lying allowed Trixie to establish a six shots to two lead and although working hard Trixie extended the lead to 11 shots to three after 10 ends.

A sound effort from the Carnoustie pair was well contained. The final result was 15 shots to four in favour of Arbroath.

The James Laird Salver winners were E. McFarlane and H. Stewart from Forfar Bowling Club while the Canmore Pairing of Nancy Milne and Doris Watt received the Derek and Marlene Neave prize for the Canmore pairing progressing furthest in the tournament. ‚Äč
