Record Numbers for Stranraer Bowling Club

A RECORD entry of 176 pairs will compete in the second Stranraer Bowling Club four-ball pairs tournament to be played on 23rd and 23th of this month.

Stena Line and the Small Towns Initiative are closely involved in the event, which will be played on greens at Stranraer, West End, Castle Kennedy, Kirkcolm and Sandhead. And the influx of visitors is so great that most of the bed and breakfast accommodation in Stranraer has been booked, with some people staying in outlying areas.

Stagecoach Western are providing a coach free on the Sunday to transfer players to the various venues.

Said organiser, Susan Kelly:

"This has gone beyond my wildest dreams. There will be well over 400 people in the town over the weekend as a direct result of the tournament".

She revealed that 76 pairs have entered from Ireland, including two pairs from Dublin and that 50 wives are coming over with players.

"Most of them will be spending something in the local shops over the weekend. It should give local trade a boost", she added.
