On a windy,cool morning twenty ladies contested Halifax Bowling Club's Connelly Pairs. An experienced lady bowler was paired with a less experienced one.
After several exciting games the semi finalists were Christine Austin and Anne Mullaney, Barbara Gee and Ann Ranton, Carol Onions and Bev Clayton and Mavis Walker and Elspeth Hartley.
Both semi finals were superb games with Christine and Anne coming out on top 15-14 against Barbara and Ann and in the other semi new bowler Carol and Bev also came out on top by the narrowest of margins at 15-14.

 The final was a "nip and tuck" affair. Carol and Bev went into a 14-11 lead and were holding a "2" for game before Bev knocked one of Anne's bowls in for Christine and Anne to score a single and put the score at 14-12. Christine and Anne then ran out with another single and a pair to take the final by 15-14. The other ladies appreciated the excellent bowling.

The winners were presented with the cup by last years winners Lorraine Tomlinson and Barbara Gee. Thanks were expressed to the ladies for providing food and to Lynda for running the competition.
