Flo Doan ladies’ doubles

21 pairs entered the Flo Doan ladies’ doubles played at Peel on Saturday 30 July, where the green was running well and the weather stayed fair until the latter stages at which point it became a little cooler. There was some excellent bowling on view throughout, with most players enjoying their games.

Semi-finals: Jenny Moore and Elaine Moore 21, Ann Hollingworth and Heike Perry 19; Helen Martin and Janet Monk 21, Jean Thackrah and Mavis Franks 7.

Helen and Janet made the better start in the final, leading 12-7 after five ends, but Elaine and Jenny won the next 5 ends, which included a 2 and a 3, to nudge ahead 15-12. The Mooragh pair scored a 3 followed by a single to give them a one point lead, but this was the end of their resistance as the pair from South Ramsey had another run of five ends to take the match 21-16.

The presentation was made by club president, Heather Horsburgh, who thanked everyone who had entered, those who had stayed to the end, and everyone who had contributed to the smooth running of the afternoon.

Elaine thanked the Peel club, particularly the green keeper for the beautiful condition of the green.
