Benachie Bowling Finals Day

Have your say

The Benachie Bowling Association finals took place on President Finlay MacKintosh’s green at Newhills on Sunday (August 17).

The spectators were treated to some excellent bowling – commencing with glorious sunshine which later turned to heavy rain, making it difficult for the competitors.

The League Play-off followed the knock-out competitions which proved to be a very close game and could have gone either way, but Rothienorman managed to hold off Kintore by nine shots to win the league title.
