LARGS Bowling Club have enjoyed well-attended opening days for both the ladies and gents sections.

President Ray Young was delighted to welcome members and representatives of kindred clubs to join in the play, after his wife Linda formally opened the green.

She delivered an excellent length jack, followed by an almost touching first bowl. Chris Hoult was the lucky member to collect the prize for guessing the jack length.

The Lang Medal contest between the president’s and vice president’s teams was won by a convincing margin of 99 to 56 in favour the president's players.

Past president Brian Cant, deputising for vice president David Macdonald, presented the medals along with prizes for the highest rink on each team, awarded to David White, James Farrell, Colin Gillespie and Stuart Robertson for the president and Peter Soltysek, Tom Cranston, Ian Tennatn and Ron Hempseed for the vice president.

Lady president Margaret Reat welcomed members and representatives of local clubs to her section's opening and, following a very close competition for the Marshal Jug, the vice president's team narrowly pipped the president’s to the post. Margaret presented the winners' trophy to vice president Mary Soltysek.

The highest scoring rink for the president’s team was made up of representatives from visiting clubs. This was Cathy Blair of Halkshill, Maureen Loose of Fairlie, Marion Currie of Douglas Park and Lesley Muir from Skelmorlie, and for the Vice President’s team Cath Jones, Pamela Corrigan and Val Dunse of Largs, alongside Lorna Gillespie from West Kilbride.
