The ladies became full and equal members of the club in 2013,
and this has removed some
restrictions which formerly applied and has resulted in some competitions
becoming mixed instead of men only (eg the Directors Cup). There are still
separate ladies and gents times and separate competitions, which should prevent
incidents such as the one shown.

Mrs Mary Cochrane
After a lovely summer, we seem to have been plunged directly into late
autumn. But at least the good weather enabled our friendlies, both home and
away, together with club competition ties to be played when they should have
Although our member numbers are down on our heyday, we were still able to
enter teams in the Bowls Scotland, West of Scotland, and Dumbarton
Associations' competitions - with mixed success , although most of our teams
managed to get to round three before sadly being "pipped at the post".
However, entering these competitions is a great way to meet other bowlers
and perhaps pick up a few tips!
The Club Finals were to have been played over two days in August. But, as
in previous years, we have had ladies involved in more than one final, and
this year ours actually
stretched out over two weeks, with the catering ladies providing a lovely
tea at each one. Our Ladies' Championship this year was a closely
contested game between Irene Harrison and Isabel Gilmour with Isabel
emerging as champion for 2018.
We are a very friendly club and would be delighted to welcome anyone
interested in bowling- we have a qualified coach to help beginners. Contact
the club secretary Bill Gifillan by email at

Two of the events which took place during the season were the Ladies
Cancer Cup and the Two Bowl singles, in which Christina Kennedy
defeated Anne Blaine in the final. Christina skipped the Cancer Cup
winning team of Joyce, Sylvia and Netta. The charity fund raising day raised
a total of £1670, which goes towards funding a research post.
