5 August 2016
It was a cold and damp day at Gordon on Friday 5th August for the playing of this year’s Jean McKinnon Shield. Eight teams from each of the North Shore and Manly-Warringah Districts braved the conditions for this annual event. The morning rounds were played on very heavy greens and Manly-Warringah managed to get away to a good lead of 102 to 88 by lunchtime. The North Shore ladies came out fighting and played great bowls on the faster greens to take a convincing lead in the afternoon rounds. However, a late run by Manly-Warringah narrowed the gap, with North Shore ultimately winning the afternoon by just one, giving Manly-Warringah a well deserved 210 – 197 overall win.
