Some great bowling today ladies. Although some slow play on some rinks meant it was a very long day!

So we need to discuss next year’s arrangements for this competition at our next delegates meeting. This could include making the draw beforehand and whether we bring in a time limit or 15 ends.


A big thank you to Morpeth BC for hosting this event; for sorting out all the equipment; providing non stop hot drinks all day and umpiring when required, it was all greatly appreciated.

Thank you to Karen Milner for stepping in as a substitute for one of the Newbiggin teams
