The 2017 Lawn Bowls Championships took place at Waterloo Bowling Club, and was the last competition for the bowlers before the Special Olympics National Summer Games in August.
The event was originally scheduled to take place on 7th June, but was cancelled due to the heavy rain. Fortunately the weather stayed fine for the 28th, and the eventual winners were Michael MacKay (Nairn) and Lisa Booker-Milburn (Dornoch), with Philip Hendry (Alness) and Morag Reid (Nairn) taking the runner-up places.
All 4 of the trophy winners are competing at the Special Olympics, and pictured below is Philip Hendry presenting a cheque to Isable Reid for £480, money which he raised from a sponsored walk from Alness to Invergordon in aid of Team Highland.
The winners and runners-up;-
Lisa Booker-Milburn, Michael Mackay, Philip Hendry & Morag Reid.
