Can we first of all remind everyone that unless specifically authorised, play is not allowed on the green, during the week, until 11am. Please respect the morning start times, clearly laid out in in Tie Booking sheets, which are there for a number of operational reasons relating to work on the green and certain health & safety issues.
Please read the attached document which details the bowling events involving our Club during the week beginning Monday 20 May.
On Saturday 25 May, our Ladies’ Bowls Scotland Triples take on Beechwood B.C. at Currie at 10.30 am and , if successful, will then have another game on the Sunday morning also at Currie. All the best, girls. In addition, our Ladies’ East of Scotland campaigns start this week with the Singles at Blackhall and the Fours at Balerno on Tuesday afternoon while the Pairs take on Carrickknowe B.C. at Juniper Green and the Triples have a match against Juniper Green B.C. at Currie on Thursday afternoon. Good luck, ladies. Finally, our Ladies’ Top Ten will be in action away to Wardie B.C. on Monday afternoon. All the best, girls.
Our Bowls Scotland Seniors’ representatives in the Singles (Bernie Callaghan and Jim Connor) will both be in action at Merchiston against Lutton Place B.C. and at Sighthill against Slateford B.C. respectively on Monday afternoon. All the best, guys. In addition, our Bowls Scotland Senior Fours representatives will be at Parkside and Coltbridge respectively on Monday afternoon with games against Braid B.C. and Slateford B.C.

The Fours also compete against Gorgie Mills B.C. at Lutton Place. All the best, guys.
Hopefully, both of our Mixed Pairs will continue in the Bowls Scotland competition on Sunday 26 May both with matches at Currie. All the best, guys and gals.
We are also hosting several ‘external’ ties on the green this week. We have three Seniors’ Bowls Scotland ties on Monday afternoon and four Gents’ Bowls Scotland games on Tuesday evening. Please try to get along to the Club on these occasions to see some very good ‘external’ players on the green.
Finally, a wee ‘heads-up’ on some upcoming competitions :
1. The Seniors have their annual Bob Horsham Trophy game at 2.00pm on Friday 7 June. There is a list on the Seniors’ Notice-board for those wishing to be involved.
2. The annual Gents’ Friendly with Carrickknowe B.C. will be held at 2.00pm on Saturday 15 June at home. We are looking for 6 rinks for this match. Please add your name to the list on the Gents’ Notice-board if you are available to play. This is always a very good afternoon.
3. We will be sending a team to the annual EBL Charity Triples competition to be held at Willowbrae B.C. on Saturday 15 June. If you would like to be involved on this day, please let Bernie Callaghan know. This is also a good day and a great opportunity to meet players from other Clubs. It is open to both Ladies and Gents.
The Management Committee.
