Amid some unseasonably mild weather, the Winter league is finally over, and the bowlers can now look forward to a few weeks break before the start of the Summer session. Here's how the last night turned out.
The start of the Monday Night Winter Tenpin League was a muted affair as uncertainty over the number of teams competing bought some confusion to the proceedings. Things were not helped by a new team, a number of member changes, missing team members, and the Secretary's minor blunder in providing incorrect handicaps for the early session bowlers! However, even with these taken into account, the bowling ran relatively smoothly.
The first matter to report this evening is that a delegation from Pentland met up with league officials and a referees representative to put forward a case for allowing Pentland in the league. It was accepted that due to someone being on holiday and another of sick no one turned up at the meeting and Pentland always were looking to enter a side into the league.
Dounreay Workshops fired a warning shot across the bows of all the other teams with a fine 5-0 win over Castletown. First half goals by Jamie McKay and Graeme Angus had them in easy street.
After the recent meeting held in the St Clair it has emerged that 13 teams will contest this seasons RMC sevens league. The major talking point is the absence of Thurso Pentland one of the original teams to join the league.
Seven competitors from Wick triathlon club made the trip to Nairn for the Sprint triathlon on Sunday last. Excellent results were achieved by the Caithness Club for the event consisting of a 500 metre swim followed by a 20 km cycle and, immediately thereafter, a 6 km run.
The Monday Night League came to a close with the final round bringing a great deal of anticipation and some close final scores. First up was Gutterlevel versus Gowks and the latter needed to take 15 of the available 20 points to squeeze into first place.
The penultimate night of the Summer Monday Night League saw the tension build as the overall scorelines tightened. Hitmen & Her played Papa's Kids in match one and the first game was a close run effort, with all the pressure bearing down on Hitmen's Ally Gray in the final shot.
The 13th week of the Monday Night League bought some better scores than the previous two weeks but still well short of those seen earlier in the league. Leading the way was Gowks' Rene Murray with a 614 series.
For the second week running the scoring in the Monday Night League was unfashionably low and, once again, only one bowler, Gutterlevel's Linda Clarke, broke the 200 pin barrier with a 245 game. She also achieved a 625 series - the best female game and series of the league so far.
Something was definately different as week 11 of the Monday league produced this session's worst crop of scores. Whether the teams were struggling to get to grips with the freshly oiled lanes or there were other forces at work, but hitting a single pin with the first ball was also quite prevalent in the early matches.
