THANKYOU TO CO-OPERATIVE FUNERALCARE - DUNOON

The Club was delighted to receive 12 bowling mats and 12 scorecard holders from the Dunoon Branch of Co-op Funeralcare.

This has been a great boost to the Club as several of our mats are rather the worse for wear.

President John was happy to welcome Scott Richmond, Manager, to accept this kind donation.

Well, what a day for our 170th Opening. Sunshine, tennis, bowling, good food & great company.

Big shout out to all the visiting bowlers who supported us & the guys & gals from overseas. I hope they made it through Colintraive customs with all that booze ??

President John thanked Robert Devine from Ardentinny Bowling Club who spoke kindly on behalf of kindred Clubs. He then asked Eileen Brand to deliver the first bowls of the season, after which he declared the Green & Courts open for 2024.

Our first toucher of the season was won by Barbara Parkinson of RBC & the winning triple was John Devine & Jim Morgan (Innellan) & Kevin Hayes (RBC).

A substantial afternoon tea was then enjoyed before Andy Brown & President John tackled the huge raffle. Thankyou to everyone who brought prizes & tickets.
