A couple of weeks ago the Invergarry Bowls Annual Knockout competition finally came to a head and yours truly managed to make it through to the final – but tripped at the last hurdle.
I only started playing when we took over Invergarry Lodge last year but have thoroughly enjoyed it. I struggled a bit the first few weeks using a different set of borrowed bowls every game but my grandparents came to the rescue by donating their old faithfuls to Team Invergarry (Me and Jen).
Grandad had obviously taught his bowls to play well because they were great – made all the difference. Jon and I had a tense final, but I couldn’t get the better of him.
Runner up’s not bad though – I was even presented with a certificate (along with a hug!) from Marigold – much rather from her than the club president Dave! Notice the extreme through-the-legs technique and the mis-spelt name on the certificate.
Anyway, until next year Jon…..
