After a number years and some  well fought but ultimately unsuccessful tournaments in bitterly cold conditions, Balmoral Bowling Club has wrested back the the Annual "Bone of Contention" off  Browns Bay Bowling Club for 2015/16.  The "Bone" is a long fought for "trophy" of dubious provenance dating back to when Balmoral assisted the Browns Bay club in getting their greens established.  
With weather intervening on the original date in July we finally got to play in good conditions at Browns Bay on 8 August. 
The official score was 13 games to 8 but was actually 14 -8 given one of the  Balmoral skips forgot to hand his card in! Inquiries continuing.  
Thanks to the 26 or so men and ladies including many of our new juniors. Special thanks to those who played in an event for their very first time after only a couple of rollups  all in all outstanding work to win back the Trophy!
