Carnoustie West End

CARNOUSTIE West End held a mixed triples, round robin competition on Sunday. They combined it with a charity fund raiser for Macmillan nurses and raised over £1,200 in the process.

Junior vice-president Mike Stewart offered to raise some extra money by having his head and beard shaved off. This operation was performed by Nadine Torrie under the watchful eye of the members. The club also had a raffle with prizes donated by local businesses and members

On the bowling front, the competition was fiercely contested by a full house of members and was eventually won by Fiona Finlay, John Stewart and David Curtis.

The club will have their final game on Saturday with the traditional secretary v treasurer ‘friendly’ match. The presentation of the cheque to Macmillan Nurses will take place at the clubrooms before the game which starts at 2.30 p.m.
