Eighteen ladies rolled up for Tuesday’s ‘masked bowls’! Not exactly a sell-out, but those who attended made an effort to dress accordingly! Some colourful, patterned and batik masks were of interest, while many girls opted for the nil-washing option of the single-use variety! And then those low-cut versions – ooh la la!
First out on the dance floor of Rink 6, Kim Evans/Rosemary Mitch-ell/Maureen Baillie tangoed with Helen Heraghty/Jan McPhee/Rhona Went in the first round of the Club Championship Triples. Team Baillie trod on the toes of their opposition, winning by a narrow margin.
In the other triples title round, on Stage 2, Heather Harvey/Mau-reen Miller/Joan Simpson had all the right moves, but not enough to upset the winning rhythm of Merilyn Rodgers/Di Howell/Lea Orr.
Six ladies enjoyed a social hoedown up in the country on Rink 17! Julie Green/Gwenda Carty/Carol Reed out-performed Valmai Westcott/Kay Craft/Maria Willcockson. Julie recovered well from a mistimed moonwalk, and rallied for her team. Jules, you rock!
Once inside the club, when seated with food/drink, masks lost their appeal! Julie succumbed to liquid pain-killers!
The second round of the Club Championship Triples will be held in a fortnight, on 13th July.
