Bowlers from the Rothesay and Ardbeg clubs will head for mainland Argyll this Saturday, July 19, to compete in the Argyll and Bute Bowling Association’s championship semi-finals.

Rothesay Bowling Club’s ladies travel to Oban to compete in the singles, pairs, triples and fours, while a group of Rothesay gents will compete in the singles, pairs and senior fours, being played at Tarbert and Lochgilphead.

Also heading for Tarbert and Lochgilphead are bowlers from Ardbeg, who will compete in the gents’ triples and fours.

Two Bute teams were victorious in the 2013 ABBA championships, with Rothesay’s Cathy McMurchie, Joan Reynolds and Agnes Connell winning the ladies’ triples title and their clubmates Alan Cowan, Johnny Walker, John Gilchrist and Matt Martin triumphing in the gents’ rinks.
