Around the greens


A GOOD day’s bowling was had at the club’s annual Charity Day last weekend.

The victorious rink was V. Gillie, M. Mirtle, P. Mirtle and E. Roberts, who beat a rink skipped by P. Houston.

The amount raised on the day for The Scottish and Newcastle Lymphoma Group was £615, including the money taken during the entertainment evening.

On Sunday, the President’s Prize took place and the gents’ winner was G. Sandilands with C. McVie taking the honours for the ladies.


IN A closely-contested final, the Langholm pair of P. Warwick (skip) and C. Warwick defeated the home duo of D. Weir (skip) and M. Weir in the Open Mixed Pairs competition held on Saturday.

Members and friends are reminded that the club will be holding a coffee morning this Saturday from 10am until noon, followed by the President’s Prize competition in the afternoon.


WOULD all members please note that the club is now open between noon and 4pm each day.

The leagues will be starting from next week and team organisers should have received details of the league programme by post. If not, they should contact the club immediately.

The Scottish leagues are starting very soon with the men hosting Stirling on Saturday, October 1, while the ladies have an away fixture on the same day.

The senior men start even sooner with a match at home against Portobello on Wednesday.

In order for players to gain some practice it is hoped to have a match between the Saturday team and the seniors tomorrow night. All men wishing to play should arrive at the stadium by 6.30pm so that teams can be arranged.
