THE OUTDOOR season opened on Saturday for the 70 Abbey Bowling Club members who attended the usual president versus vice-president game.

Prior to the opening match the traditional Spider was held and was won by Sam Russell.

Throughout the game touchers by the leads, seconds, thirds and skips were won respectively by Brian Williams, Jim M. Cargill, Willie Bisset and Doug Lundie. As it was such a good day it was decided to play the full 21 ends, resulting in a 132-149 win for the vice-president’s select.
