Mary McIn­tyre and Maureen Lewis will play their LWBA pairs semi-fi­nal at Shotts this morn­ing, Wed­nes­day, at 10am. This Satur­day sees the Ten­nents Triples take place with a 9.30am for 10am start. Twenty-four teams will par­tic­i­pate in what is al­ways a busy and en­joy­able day at the club with 13 vis­it­ing teams in at­ten­dance.

Last Satur­day saw Ladies Day, spon­sored by Drum­sagard Acad­emy 2001s, take place and 48 play­ers took part. Even­tual win­ners were the un­beaten rink of Mark McCul­ley, Billy Orr, Wil­liam An­der­son and Rena Dun­can who were the only team to win all four games. The club con­tin­ued their fundrais­ing for Mo­tor Neu­ron Dis­ease and the to­tal now stands at over £1,000. The fi­nal to­tal will fol­low soon.

The gents hosted Coat­bridge in the first round of the top 10 on Sun­day. The sin­gles got off to a flyer with a good win be­fore the pairs and triples lost their games. It all boiled down to the rinks but a one-shot vic­tory for them was not enough and Half­way lost out over­all by two shots. The La­nark­shire League restarts this Fri­day. The Di­vi­sion 3 team travel to Over­town and Water­loo and the Di­vi­sion 10 team host Ed­dle­wood in a top of the ta­ble clash.

In a rain af­fected RDBA Triples, Half­way lost at home against Tem­ple­ton last week and the away game was aban­doned. This week’s op­po­nents are Over­toun Park, next week’s are Croft­foot.

The fol­low­ing two Satur­days sees the club host Su­per Se­ries qual­i­fiers be­fore fi­nals day is held on Satur­day, Au­gust 27. The Tildes­ley Triples, spon­sored by John Kerr, takes place on Sun­day, Au­gust 13.

The se­niors con­tin­ued their Gem­mell Tro­phy cam­paign last week at Burn­side and won 4-2. The se­niors will also host the District 26 All Day Triples comp to­day, Wed­nes­day.

Last week was busy on the greens with many of the in­ter­nal com­pe­ti­tions get­ting to the busi­ness end and quar­ter or semi-fi­nal stages for most. Burn­side’s fi­nals days are stag­gered over the week­end of Au­gust 24-26 and the first week­end of Septem­ber so things are heat­ing up.

Ex­ter­nally Burn­side had a good week with only one re­verse re­sult in the Gem­mill Tro­phy where Half­way Bowl­ing Club won by four matches to two.

Else­where, Burn­side man­aged a string of vic­to­ries and in the Glas­gow League Burn­side de­feated An­nies­land BC home and away. This dou­ble re­sult was re­peated by the club’s Se­nior Fours on Wed­nes­day.

In the Ruther­glen and District Burn­side’s home team won with the away game aban­doned due to a tor­ren­tial down­pour mak­ing the game un­playable.

On Satur­day the club held its tra­di­tional pres­i­dents night hosted by club pres­i­dent Davie Robert­son Jnr. An ex­cel­lent turnout played a quick game of bowls fol­lowed by a buffet and cabaret evening which was en­joyed by all.

A vote of thanks was given to Davie for his or­gan­i­sa­tion skills and also pay­ing for the evening as well as to his wife Pamela for at­tend­ing to the cater­ing. A raf­fle was held and a sum of £220 raised which will be do­nated at the end of the sea­son with any other monies raised to a wor­thy cause and will be do­nated to the Crohn’s and Coli­tis So­ci­ety.

Mon­day night saw nor­mal ser­vice re­sumed with the re­turn of Boots McDon­ald to the win­ning podium af­ter a short ab­sence. Boots skipped his way to take the prize to­gether with the ex­pe­ri­enced duo of Ste­vie Leonard and Jim Gib­son. In an emo­tional speech he thanked his op­po­nents and also the club for kick start­ing his in­vest­ment port­fo­lio once again.

In the Bowls Scot­land fi­nals at North­field last week Betty Duck­ett won her first game in the se­nior sin­gles but then lost in the next round. The gents triples of Brian Con­nelly, Jimmy Simp­son and Gary were knocked out on Fri­day af­ter a valiant at­tempt be­ing beaten by one shot. Con­grat­u­la­tions to Betty and the triples team for reach­ing the fi­nals.

In the Cam­bus­lang and District League Ruther­glen won both games in a post­poned game last Mon­day evening then shared the points with White­field on the Wed­nes­day morn­ing. This morn­ing, Wed­nes­day, the club plays against Mount Florida.

On Fri­day evening Dun­can Brodie nar­rowly lost in the pre­lim­i­nary round of the North Eastern League top ten sin­gles. The pairs, triples and fours play their first round ties this Fri­day evening.

The club nom­i­nated mixed pairs tour­na­ment last Satur­day was won by He­len Steven­son and Jim Mal­loch who beat Mavis Forbes and Gil Mor­gan in the fi­nal.

The Mon­day evening ag­gre­gate game was won by Ian Fer­rell and Gil Mor­gan.
