|INNELLAN BOWLING AND
Innellan Bowling and Tennis Club aim to provide members with a full Calendar of Bowling events throughout the season commencing on Opening Day through to Closing Day in September. These are made up of a full cross section of games including:
Ladies and Gents Competitions: - all members being able to play at any time of day throughout the week except some Thursday evenings when Gents Hyslop League and Ladies Triples League teams have home matches. There is also a Seniors Mixed Triples League with games being played every second Tuesday morning commencing June. See Events Calendar for dates when home league matches are scheduled.
Championship Singles, Presidents Trophy, Vice Presidents Trophy, Secretarys Plate, Gents Pairs, Ladies Pairs, Mixed Pairs competitions - these run throughout the season with Finals Day at the beginning of September.
The Club also hosts one day events either on a Saturday or Sunday throughout the season these include a Gents Open Pairs; Gents Open Triples; Mixed Rinks; Ladies Day and an annual Friendly Challenge Match against Colintraive BC.
In addition wappenschaws are held on Tuesday evenings (6.45pm start) and Wednesday afternoon (2.00pm start). On Tuesday evenings teams are made up from a ballot of members drawn on the night and play for points throughout the season with the player having the highest number of points at the end of the season being declared the winner. On Wednesday afternoons teams are similarly drawn from a ballot of members but no points are awarded.
PLEASE CHECK CALENDAR FOR FORTHCOMING EVENTS THROUGHOUT THE SEASON
SAD NEWS - JIMMY McNAIR
It was sad to hear of the passing of Jimmy McNair, a former member, this morning.
Jimmy & his wife Betty were members for some time & both were active in the bowling & social side of IBTC.
The flag will be lowered as a mark of respect for Jimmy.
Condolences go to Jimmy's son, daughter & families.
GENTS' TRIPLES CANCELLED
Due to a very low entry from kindred Clubs, our Gents Triples for the George Cameron Memorial Quaich, has had to be cancelled on Saturday 11 May.
We hope to be in a position to reschedule this tournament later in the season, once the County Games are finished.
In the meantime thanks to Rothesay, Kirn & Hunter's Quay & Dunoon Argyll for their support. Thanks also to our own members who were participating.
OPENING OF THE GREEN AND COURTS 2019
The Club opened its doors for the 165th time on Sunday 14 April. Susan Selkirk of Rothesay BC spoke on behalf of the kindred Clubs & also delivered the first jack & bowls of the season.
80 members, kindred club members & friends attended, with some of the hardy ones enjoying a game of bowls & tennis before having a very substantial afternoon tea.
We then had a huge raffle (thanks to members & guests for the prizes) & a Guess the Name of the Bunny, kindly donated by Vanda Brown. This was won by Georgie Cossar who chose the correct name "Clyde".
The winners of the wappenschaw were Georgie Cossar, Jim Cook & Dougie Menzies & Dougie also won the first toucher of the season.
Congratulations to them all.
All that's left to say is enjoy your bowls & tennis & please remember to do your wee bit towards keeping the clubhouse -& grounds in good order.
