With the three main bowling competitions in Aberdeenshire cancelled for 2020 the Harlaw Bowling Club council regretably decided this week that the restrictions are so great that there should be no play in 2020.

This is a major blow to the 120 members.

The inter-club competitions normally held have decided to write off the leagues this year.

Harlaw have featured strongly in the Bennachie league and won the Cromallie and Forbes Hendry trophies in recent years.

Scottish Bowls have intimated that the playdowns for this year are unlikely to be played hence the decision to abandon Harlaw play.

Behind the scenes there is still much being done with mementoes ready for distribution and a booklet is in the final stages of preparation celebrating 50 years of Bowling.

On the decision club president Fergus Muat said: "Roll on 2021, as our green has still had its regular cut every week and will be in top class condition next year".
