The major championships are taking shape.   The President’s Cup final will be between Vic Crockford and either Tom Brown or Stevie Todd who meet on Friday evening.   The Championship itself will feature Vic against Ian Robertson.

The inaugural Adult / Junior Pairs Competition  was held on Sunday, with a  massive thanks to the Rowan family who sponsored this in memory of the late David Rowan.  The winners were grandfather/grandson combo of Vic Crockford and Jake Harvey who defeated Stevie Todd and Sandy Fisher 5-3 in an exciting final.  Full details appear in the Competition News page .

Experts who know about these things say that the secret to healthy aging  – ie living longer, free from chronic diseases – is finding something you enjoy doing and staying socially active.  Sounds simple ?  Even simpler, the secret is to take up bowls!!! If you know of any retired friend or neighbour, looking for a healthy future, recommend they join the Howie!!
