Brodick bowlers got their season off to a flying start with the first bowl of the season taking place on a bright sunlit day at the Brodick Bowling Club rink last Saturday.

Opening the season, Andy McCrindle bowled the first jack to the delight of the watching members who enjoyed the ensuing game of bowls with more than 21 bowlers taking part.

The club has issued an open invitation to anyone who would like to try out the game, or learn the rules, to visit the rink any day during the week between 10.30am and 4.30pm. Members who are on duty will be very willing to explain the game and allow novices to have a go.

Traditionally thought of as an older persons sport, the club actually has members of all ages and abilities, and has equipment for adults and children to use.

Rink games are held at 6.45pm each Monday and Wednesday, and on a Saturday at 2pm. Visitors are always welcomed and all equipment and sage advice is provided if required.
