Please read the attached document which details the bowling events involving our Club during the week beginning Monday 21 August.
Firstly, huge congratulations to our Ladies’ Triples (Jean Meiklejohn, Pat Reid and Theresa Blair) who won the Final of the EBA Knockouts today at Whitehouse & Grange beating Tanfield B.C. in a very good match. Well done, girls – a magnificent achievement.
The Gents’ Championship Final between Andy Lomax and Stuart Campbell will be held on Friday 25 August at 6.30pm. Please try to get along to the Club to support the guys in this very important match. All the best to both Andy and Stuart.
Our Ladies continue their campaigns in the EWBA Championship games on Monday afternoon at 2.00pm. The Singles (Theresa Blair) will take on London Road Foundry B.C. while our Pairs (Jean Meiklejohn and Chris Bentley) will play Sighthill B.C. Both of these matches are at Braid. If they are successful in these games, then Theresa will have another match at Sighthill and the Pairs will play at Carrickknowe in the semi-finals on Wednesday afternoon at 1.30pm. Then, if they win on Wednesday, they will compete in the Finals at Wardie on Friday afternoon at 1.30 pm. Good luck, ladies.
On Saturday 26 August, we are scheduled to host the annual Sanderson Invitation Triples competition (start times to be announced). Currently, we only have 8 entries on the list.
