THE OR­GAN­IS­ERS of Bowmore sports day, held at the Bowmore play­ing field on July 18, were de­lighted that the sun shone on their ef­forts and that the tor­ren­tial rain and gale force winds of the pre­vi­ous evening gave way to blue skies and warm breezes.

The day be­gan with the sports pa­rade which was led by a group of lo­cal pipers and headed by the sports queen, Elise Proc­tor, ac­com­pa­nied by sports princess, Aimee Stewart.

The event was of­fi­cially opened by is­land GP, Dr Ca­tri­ona Davis, and the chil­dren’s events and races were well pa­tro­n­ised as were the ac­tiv­i­ties fea­tur­ing in­flat­a­bles. High­land danc­ing and dog man­age­ment dis­plays pro­vided fur­ther in­ter­ests as did trade stalls and char­ity out­lets. The buck­ing bronco was another high­light with Breagh Woodrow hang­ing on like grim death in the ju­nior class while Louis Baker did like­wise in the se­nior com­pe­ti­tion.

In the adult

sec­tion, Mairi MacArthur and Josh Pritchard ran like hares while, among oth­ers, Ian Bell, Alas­dair Porter and Jamie MacFar­lane, dis­played mus­cle and grit in the heavy events.

The or­gan­is­ers are in­debted to ev­ery­one who sup­ported the sports day.

Monthly fundrais­ing bingo ses­sions re­sume in Bowmore hall on Au­gust 29 at 7pm.
