The gents invitation triples competition for the Millennium trophy took place in ideal weather at Ardbeg Bowling Club on Sunday, August 28.

After five games of seven ends, the winners emerged as the triple consisting of Ronnie McCrae, Duncan McKellar and Jim Miller (pictured) with 7 points and 24 shots.

Runners-up, with the same number of points but a lower shot difference of +6, were Brian Caird, John Preston and Andy Williamson. Third place went to the Rothesay Bowling Club triple of Brian Mackillop, Fred Baker and David Spence, 6 points +32 shots.

President John Preston thanked the catering staff for providing lunch and dinner, the bar staff, and especially the visiting teams for their attendance.
