Kirkhill

Rutherglen Reformer - - Motoring Guide -

Club pres­i­dent Iain McKay, who un­der­went a heart by- pass pro­ce­dure less than two weeks ago, did a great job co­or­di­nat­ing the pro­ceed­ings at the open­ing of Kirkhill Bowl­ing Club greens on Satur­day.

He was ably sup­ported by ladies pres­i­dent Jean Kerr, gents vice pres­i­dent John Coubrough and ladies vice pres­i­dent Siob­han Gal­lagher who all did very well per­form­ing their new du­ties bril­liantly.

Rona McKay threw the fam­ily’s heir­loom sil­ver jack awarded to Iain McKay’s mother many years ago and opened the green with a few brief words to club mem­bers.

There were 48 peo­ple play­ing bowls and a large num­ber work­ing and so­cial­is­ing in the club so it was a great turn out for open­ing day.

The pres­i­dents rink with past pres­i­dent John O’Brien sub­sti­tut­ing for gents club pres­i­dent Iain McKay, won by one shot as tra­di­tion de­mands and Hugh McNulty and Alas­tair Robertson were the club mem­bers in a triples team who won the prize do­nated by Iain McKay for the high­est up team score.

The weather for the eight ends of play was dry but windy and cool.

Play­ers thought the green was run­ning well thanks to the work of Davie Flem­ing and Ron­nie Wil­son, es­pe­cially with Davie hav­ing had a cataract eye oper­a­tion re­cently.

Mem­bers and guests were de­lighted with the hard work of com­mit­tee mem­bers, vol­un­teers and all helpers who made great ef­forts to look af­ter ev­ery­one.

There were many do­na­tions for the raf­fle or­gan­ised and run by Jean Kerr with com­mit­tee mem­bers Brian Gal­lacher and Ron­nie Lewis who both had to work very hard to hand out the many prizes. All in­volved did very well.

The re­fresh­ments, food tea and cof­fee were gen­er­ously pro­vided and served up by com­mit­tee mem­bers, no­tably past ladies pres­i­dent Chris­tine MacLeod , Siob­han Gal­lagher and many play­ing and so­cial mem­bers and were en­joyed by all.

The bar ran smoothly as usual, thanks to the prepa­ra­tion and work of Sam Maxwell, Gerry Ritchie and bar staff in­volved.

Mem­bers were pleased to see the names on the cham­pi­ons and pres­i­dents boards thanks to the work of Bill Bell, Ron­nie Wil­son and all in­volved with the pro­duc­tion and post­ing of the names.

Mem­bers and guests had a great day and are look­ing for­ward to the new sea­son at Kirkhill BC.
