IOM Ladies Pairs
Report by Heather Horsburgh
18 pairs gathered at South Ramsey on Saturday 4 May for the IOM Ladies’ Pairs. On a fast green and in a wind which got stronger as the afternoon progressed conditions were not easy. This did not prevent good bowling and some very close matches.
Semi-finals : Jenny Maddrell and Ann Gale 21, Lyn Bolton and Paula Garrett 19; Helen Martin and Rachel Quirk 21, Linda Richman and Casey Bolton 9.
In the final things were very even, and tactical, with one side taking a lead then the others catching up. Helen and Rachel surged ahead in the last few ends to take the title 21-16.
The presentation was made by Association Competition Secretary, Elaine Moore, who thanked South Ramsey for allowing the Association the use of their green and facilities, and the ladies in the kitchen for providing the refreshments.
