Please read the attached document which details the bowling events involving our Club during the week beginning Monday 23 August.
Firstly, huge commiserations to Chris Bentley who lost the EBA Ladies’ Knockouts Singles against London Road Foundry B.C. at Northern earlier today. Hard lines, Chris. But an excellent achievement in reaching the Final.
There are two internal competition Finals scheduled this week. On Monday morning, the Birnie Pairs will take place with Dave McGuire and Pat Reid taking on Joan McBain and Ronnie Clark. Then, on Tuesday morning, the Ladies’ Two-Bowl Final between Jean Meiklejohn and Theresa Blair will take place. All the best to everyone involved. Please try to get along to the Club to support the players in these matches.
On Monday afternoon, our Ladies have a Heather League match against Colinton B.C. with one rink at home and one away. Good luck, ladies.
On Tuesday afternoon, our North & West Seniors’ teams have league matches with the ‘A’ team away to Goldenacre B.C. and the ‘B’ team at home to Dean B.C. Good luck, guys.
On Thursday afternoon, the RMBA Top Ten competition continues with our ‘A’ team in action away to Craigentinny B.C. Stick in, chaps.
On Friday afternoon, the Gents’ EBA Seniors’ Knockouts semi-finals are scheduled with our Singles representative (George Richardson) taking on West End B.C. at Hillside while our Pairs (Jim Connor and Clint Cassidy) will be in action against Maitland B.C. also at Hillside. All the best, guys.
Also on Friday afternoon, the Ladies have an EWBA Triples League match against Goldenacre B.C. with one rink at home and one away. Good luck, ladies.
On Sunday afternoon, the annual Ladies vs Gents match will be held. We are sure that everyone involved will have a great day.
Finally, a wee reminder of a few upcoming internal competitions/matches.
The sheets for the Sutherland Singles Leagues have now been posted on the ‘Mixed’ Noticeboard, entries are down slightly this year so we have reduced the numbers in each section, hopefully making it easier for everyone involved to complete all their games.
On the afternoon of Monday 30 August, the annual Ladies’ Page Two-Bowl Pairs competition will be held. There is still time to add your name to the list on the Ladies’ Noticeboard if you want to be involved.
Our Senior Gents have their annual Friendly against Carrickknowe B.C. on Friday 10 September at home. There is a list on the Seniors’ Noticeboard if you want to participate in this highly enjoyable afternoon.
Unfortunately the Cathy Connet competition was rained off on Saturday, however we have re-scheduled this for Saturday 11th September, please add your name to the new list on the ‘Mixed’ Noticeboard.
The annual Ladies vs Senior Gents match is scheduled for the afternoon of Wednesday 15 September. There are separate lists on the Ladies’ and Senior Gents’ Noticeboards if you want to be involved in this game.
Then, on Sunday 19 September, we will have the annual ‘RugBowl’ match involving our members and members of Corstorphine Rugby Club. This is invariably a very entertaining and social afternoon. Please add your names to the list on the ‘Mixed’ Noticeboard if you want to participate in this match.
