Match Secretary -
Mrs Mary Cochrane
So far this season ( mid June) the ladies have only completed 4 out
of a possible 8 aggregate matches due to the weather. Our second home
friendly against Strathblane was held at the end of May after three of our
ladies had to supplement the visitors team. Our first away game against
Bishopbriggs on 9th June was a decisive win for the weather but was
nevertheless enjoyed by all, especially the lovely tea!
In the Dunbartonshire Association, out triples team did well to get to
the district finals.
In the West of Scotland Association, Margaret Ballantyne and Christina
Kennedy have won two rounds so far.
In the Bowls Scotland ties, Margaret Ballantyne won through to the second
round, as did the triples team of Wilma Macdonald, Helen Chalmers and
Christina Kennedy, but their progress ended there.
The winners from the 2012 competitions represented the club in Bowls
Scotland, West of Scotland and Dunbarton Association games and all did well
by getting through the first round. Some even reached the District Finals.

Michelle Orr and Netta Moffatt who reached the last 14 of the West of
Scotland championships before being knocked out by a very good team from
Because of mutiple involvement we had to have 4

Championship Final and Betty Higginson in the President's Cup. She also
reached the Final of the Knockout Cup, but was defeated in this by Christina
Another new member, Anne Blain, reached the final of the Vice President's
Cup but was defeated by Wilma Macdonald.
In the nominated pairs competition, Margaret Ballantyne and Christina
Kennedy beat Betty Higginson and Isobel Gilmour.
On the "final Final Day" Sandra Urquhart and May Gordon narrowly emerged as
winners over Helen Chalmers and Netta Moffatt.
