Weather doesn’t dampen Kintore

Kintore Bowling Club held their annual One Day Invitation Tournament on Sunday, sponsored by C & M McDonald Car Centre, Bridgefield, Midmill, Kintore.

The weather wasn’t very kind to the bowlers but the rain didn’t seem to dampen their spirits. After all four sections played a round robin format two Kintore teams, a Longside team and a Newhills team competed in the semi-final stage.

The Kintore team of M Spence, J Paterson, G Spence, Jun and G Spence, Sen lost out by a couple of shots 5 – 7 to the Longside team. In the other semi-final the Newhills team of J Forbes, M Gordon, W Forbes and H McKay were edged out by the other Kintore team by 4 shots to 5. The final was a very interesting game with the Kintore team of I Davidson, fourteen year old Eilidh Watson, her granddad Peter Watson and skip Douglas Fraser being four down but they fought back with a three, four and two to eventually win 9 shots to 5 over the Longside team of P Buchan, E Scott, A Scott and B Buchan.
