Scottish National Championship - Tournament Report

The Scottish national Championships took place at Balgreen bowling Complex Edinburgh, at the end of August. The singles and pairs events ran for five days with many hard fought games. All the competitors enjoyed the event despite some hiccups caused by people withdrawing at the last moment or during the event because of illness.

The weather was kind to us until the Friday afternoon when rain prevented us from having the presentation of prizes on the green. The finals dinner dance was well attended and enjoyed by all.

Although this was for a one-year trial it is hoped that we may be able to continue our Scottish Championships along the same lines in the future. However it will be highly unlikely that the Association will be able to offer any subsidy for accommodation in the near future as this year's subsidy proved to be very expensive for the SABB.
