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.
ARGYLL & BUTE WOMEN'S BOWLING ASSOCIATION'S FUNDRAISER
48 Cowal bowlers got together on Friday 3 May to fundraise for the A&BWBA.
We were fortunate to have a dry night but it was very very cold. Everyone enjoyed a hot supper & wee refreshment afterwards.
Thanks to all the Innellan members who helped out, with special thanks to Carrie & Dave.
The winners were from Kirn & Hunter's Quay BC (Jeanette Campbell, Gary Matthews, Bridie Ferguson & Jimmy Reid). Congratulations to them.
£260 (from entry & raffle) was handed over to Mary Watt for the ladies' fund. She thanked all the bowlers & said this would go towards hiring a bus for one of their away games.
A successful wee night for IBTC.
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.

AVRIL JACKSON'S FUNERAL DETAILS
Sandy Jackson has just informed me that Avril's funeral service will be held on Tuesday 19 February at 12 noon at Greenock Crematorium.
Sandy has asked me to say that you shouldn't feel obliged to cross the water but if you wish to pay your respects, you are welcome to join him at the Ex-Servicemens' Club, Dunoon following the service. He reckons to be there for about 1.15 - 1.30pm.
He would like to thank you all for your cards and messages at this sad time.
Thanks on Sandy's behalf.
I'm sorry to tell you that Sandy Jackson's wife Avril passed away suddenly this morning.
Sandy said it was a massive heart attack. He asked if I could let Club members know.
I'll update you by email when I know the funeral arrangements.
In the meantime, I have passed on our condolences to Sandy.
21 members & friends turned up to take part in the Quiz, held in the Clubhouse on Friday 18 January.
A wee bit disappointed there weren't more members but it was still a good night.
Many thanks to our resident Quizmaster Alison who gives up her time to support the Club.
Our winning team with a convincing win in the music round were "Three Ladies & One Boy" comprising of Jan Pender, Nancy Morris, Irene Hodge & Lee Burns.
The runners up who were the leaders at half time were "3 + 1" (Mary Brooks, Alan Reid, Ian Wright & Jim Pender).
A nice night with good friends, plenty of food & refreshments.
We will hopefully have another Quiz in March sometime when hopefully it will be a little warmer.
Watch this space.
HAPPY NEW YEAR TO ALL MEMBERS
