The inaugural final of the Bob Blyth Memorial Trophy was played on Friday 27th August, before a good number of spectators, between Si Jamieson and John Simpson. It turned out to be a closely contested game, although for the first half it looked like Si was going to triumph very quickly, being 10 shots to 1 ahead at one point. However, John kept plugging away and eventually took the lead after playing a tremendous conversion bowl to take 4 shots. He then went on to win the game 21-19.
Bob Blyth’s daughter Phyllis Barclay presented the trophy donated to the club in memory of her father, to the inaugural winner, John Simpson.
