    Sunday 15 April 2018 - Green Opening
Forres Bowling Club President, Sandy Burgess, welcomed over 60 members and guests to the club's Green Opening. The first jack of the season was delivered by Sandy's wife, Isobel. A 16-end President verses Vice-President led match followed.

The President's team emerged with a 100-71 victory.

Top rink of the day was Marjory McCarthy (substituted by Ann Grant after 10 ends), Sam Morrison, Steve Gill and Neil Ogilvie. They hit Dougie Milne for six at the first end and never looked back. Dougie did win the final three ends, but still lost 22-9.

Paul Coutts staged a great comeback against John Ross. Despite trailing 16-9 with three ends left, he still managed to level things at 16-16!

Sandy Burgess and Brian Green had a close game for nine ends. Sandy then started to pull away, finishing with a 15-8 victory.

It was the eleventh end before Dean Dobbs really got going, by which time John Matthews had taken a 13-2 lead. John won 17-8 in the end.

Harry Sutherland scored eleven shots in the final six ends but just failed to catch Davie Petrie, who seemed to do one of his 'Sleeping Beauty' impersonations mid-game!

Alex Porter fought back after trailing Hugh McBean 7-3. However he nearly threw the game away by losing a four at the last.

    Monday 4 September 2017 - Hat-Night
Although he already has the Scott Cup in the bag, Keith Sutherland keeps winning the Monday Hat-Nights! A handful at the final end gave him and Charlie Watt victory over Bob Pollock and enough to win overall.

Had Harry Sutherland taken more care over his scorecard he would have won the evening on a countback! He won his final five ends against Jim McKen, but only registered four of them!

Losing a four at the last end to Sandy Burgess cost Stuart Robertson the plaudits. He had led 11-1 after just four ends.

The main reason John Ross defeated Dean Dobbs was the five he earned at the thirteenth end.


K Sutherland 22, R Pollock 12; H Sutherland 20, J McKen 10; S Robertson 20, A Burgess 13; John Ross 18, D Dobbs 11.
