Late (Very Late) Bowling Night News

I am prompted by finding the score cards that I have not yet reported on the Summer Bowling night, so.......

The weather was not quite as kind to us as last year but despite the mizzle, an assortment of members arrived.  Following a quick drink, it was noted that the rain had stopped so 5 teams took to the green, under the watchful eyes of Gill and Muriel.  Not wanting to tempt the weather gods a quick competition was held under the midge free Gifford skies and the team of Morgan and President John ran out easy winners.  The scores (for the record) were:-
Morgan & John      +12
James & Roy          +7
Liz & David            +5
Shelagh & Graeme  -1
Anon & Anon        -24

Again drink (for the non drivers) was taken while the winners were presented with large lollipops, which they were not allowed to start until they had finished their sandwiches and snacks, laid on by the Bowling Club.

A big thanks are due to both the Bowling Club and to James Pate for helping organise the event.

Watch your letter boxes

With only 5 1/2  weeks until our first game, the website is getting its annual clean.
This is being done as the Syllabus and associated paperwork is being printed, so expect it to be coming through your door in the next few days.
Already the Fixture List on the website has been updated and contains full team information for the main competitions.
Remember, when you get your syllabus to check all the competitions for your name and not just the main leagues.

The printer has stopped and needs fed, so watch your letterbox for the big brown envelope.

Club Dinner 13th March 2015

Our Annual Club Dinner and Prize giving is once more closing in fast.
Please book early by letting Graeme know if you are coming and how many tickets you would like.
(Apologies over the confusion of the date in my email)

The Rennie Trophy

With two remaining games left there was still a mathematical chance that John Good could catch our run away leader Dave Munro and that Colin Baird could catch and overhaul Simon Kesley.
John scuppered Colin's chances with a winning margin of  9 - 3 and kept his chances open.  However Dave, using the game against Simon as a rehearsal for his outing at the Scottish Seniors Championships next weekend, was in an unforgiving mood and matched John's score of 9 - 3.
These results confirm the final positions in the league and with one round still to play we congratulate Dave Munro and his team of James Pate, Roy Black and Richard Taylor for winning the Rennie Quaich.

President v Vice President

This was a match that Simon, 'oor president' had to win, to save Graeme's blushes from last years engraving error.  It was fair to say that Simon was feeling the pressure, which was increased due to his temporary reliance on the delivery stick.
This turned out to be an exciting match that went down to the last stone of the last match.
Each of the two games were one sided with Simon receiving a skelping from John, 7 - 2.  The other game with James P playing for the President against our new Wingate winner, Willie saw the game go in favour of the President.  After six ends they were leading 5 - 3 however a mis-communication between the Vice Pres and his depute, Willie, saw him remove one of James's stones.  This mathematical error left James with a tricky draw for a four, which he made, to take his game 9 - 4.
The aggregate saw Simon squeeze home with a margin of 11 - 10.
The game was followed by an enjoyable meal.
