After enduring two hours of rain, twenty-six bowlers were rewarded with two days of absolutely beautiful weather and great bowling in the Blind Pairs tournament held over the Memorial Day weekend. Blind Pairs is the traditional kick-off event for the Milwaukee Lake Park Lawn Bowls Club and features a unique format in which skips and leads play with different partners in each game, hence the term “blind pairs”.
