He will act as an ambassador for the association at home and abroad.
Ten Pin bowling - After some promising practice sessions, Halkirk entered the competition with a wee bit of confidence. Ellen Falconer had hit 184 in a practice session earlier in the week, while Jamie Riddell had got his hands on a new ball. The team consisted of John Coghill, Carol-Ann Budge, Ellen Falconer, Bryan Sinclair, Willie Budge and Jamie Riddell. With a score of 1037, the bronze award was attained.
