LILAC TREE IN MEMORY OF MEG

The junior tennis members and their parents have had a lovely Lilac Tree planted at the Club in memory of Meg who was the Tennis Coach at IBTC for over 40 years.

 

Click above to enlarge
The plaque attached to the tree is beautiful (as you will see in the pic above) and was greatly appreciated by Tom and family.

The juniors gathered this week for a happy picture around the tree.
Lilac was chosen as this was Meg's favourite colour.

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.

AVRIL JACKSON'S FUNERAL DETAILS

QUIZ NIGHT

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.
