MEMBERS turned out in force to celebrate getting the bowling season underway.

Kilwinning Bowling Club held their opening day on Saturday, April 13, as they set their sights on another successful year.

Helena McGowan had the honour of throwing the first bowl as club president John Dickie and vice president George Gilmour watched on.

Also in attendance were dozens of members who will be looking forward to another competitive season.

The sun even managed to make an appearance at the Howgate venue - even if conditions were blustery.

All the updates from the club throughout the season can be found on their Facebook page at
