Kirkhill

Rutherglen Reformer - - Motoring Guide -

Kirkhill had their new 4G cell phone mast fit­ted which im­proved mo­bile us­age in the lo­cal area be­fore an event­ful week took place at the club.

On Wed­nes­day evening Kirkhill hosted the Chap­man Tro­phy fi­nals.

And on Fri­day the Ruther­glen and Dis­trict Bowl­ing As­so­ci­a­tion fi­nals took place on Kirkhill’s east green while Glas­gow North Eastern League games and the Kirkhill Fri­day night Harry Noble ties were on on the west green.

There were 10 rinks in use last Fri­day and as on Wed­nes­day many spec­ta­tors. Camp­bell McCul­loch was the win­ning skip on Fri­day’s gents game.

On Satur­day the Deaf Bowls As­so­ci­a­tion had use of the green while the Kirkhill gents played a parish game at Over­toun.

Kirkhill gents won the tie by a rea­son­able mar­gin of shots in the sear­ing heat in hos­pitable, friendly con­di­tions.

Sun­day saw the Kirkhill an­nual me­mo­rial Sam Wil­son tro­phy played for in su­perb weather con­di­tions and a re­ally friendly at­mos­phere. Some of late Sam’s fam­ily were spec­tat­ing and play­ing.

The win­ning triples team turned out to be Camp­bell McCul­loch (skip) play­ing with Alan Wil­son, a mem­ber of Sam Wil­son’s fam­ily, and Kirkhill’s new­est mem­ber Jim McOuat. Jim might even have claimed a record for clinch­ing a tro­phy within three days of mem­ber­ship af­ter he sub­sti­tuted for a late with­drawn player.

Play started with a spi­der throw by all con­tes­tants which ended up with two O’Brien’s, John and Tom toss­ing a coin for the prize do­nated by bar con­vener Sam Maxwell.

Af­ter play Tom pre­sented the Wil­son fam­ily with flow­ers and thanked his fel­low Kirkhill or­gan­is­ers and those who do­nated to the event.

Events at Kirkhill went so well all week be­cause of the ef­forts of mem­bers and di­rec­tors who pulled out all the stops to make it work.

Thanks go to Tom O’Brien on Sun­day, the duty di­rec­tors all week, the vol­un­teers do­ing ex­tra duty, the ladies sup­ply­ing the North Eastern league play­ers on Fri­day, the match and main com­mit­tee, the bar con­vener and staff, and Ron­nie Wil­son and his team for en­sur­ing the club hall was set up and the greens in great con­di­tion for play.

Kirkhill mem­bers were in­tro­duced to two new mem­bers this week, Jim McQuart and Peter John­ston.

Half­way & Dis­trict In­vi­ta­tion Pairs winners Alec Hay and David Fer­gus White­field­Michael O’Ha­gan and Michael Docherty won the Gents In­vi­ta­tion Pairs Cam­bus­lang Gor­don Dick Me­mo­rial In­vi­ta­tion Triples winners, Alan Fel­lows, pres­i­dent James McGall and Kin­ning Stark
