Please read the attached document which details the bowling events involving our Club during the week beginning Monday 18 July.
The National Championships are being held at Ayr, Northfield this week.
Unfortunately, Chris Bentley lost her first round match in the Senior Ladies’ Singles earlier today. Hard lines, Chris, but a wonderful achievement in qualifying for the Championships (again).
Our Ladies’ Triples (Faye Stevens, Gladys Christie and Moyra Ferrier) will be in action on Thursday afternoon at 3.00pm with a game against Largs Halkshill B.C. If successful, the girls will have matches on Friday morning and afternoon and potentially another two games on Saturday. All the best, girls.
The annual Strawberry Fayre will be held on Sunday 24 July starting at 2.00pm. We are certain that everyone involved will have a wonderful afternoon.
On Sunday evening, our Mixed Rink (Chris Bentley, Marcia Norton, Bill Cumming and David Sutherland) have a match against Blackhall B.C. at Craigentinny at 6.30pm. Good luck, guys and gals.
Finally, a wee heads-up for some upcoming events :
1. The annual Friendly against Centurion B.C. is scheduled on the green for 6.30pm on Thursday 28 July. There is still time to add your name to the list on the ‘Mixed’ Noticeboard for this match. We are looking for 3 mixed rinks and currently only have 9 names on the list.
