  Halfway BC visit to CBC

Another great day bowling with superb weather and acting President for the day was Past President Johnny McKillop who warmly welcomed Vice-President Gary Elder and the Halfway lads to our club.
The parish match between our two clubs is made a bit special as since 1977 the tournament has had a challenge cup -
                                                                     The McGinlay Trophy,
donated by the then owner of the Sun Inn Mrs Maureen McGinlay.

The President of Cambuslang BC in 1977 was Jim Montgomery Sen and the Halfway BC President was Jackie Fergus.
Both clubs have competed for the trophy ever since with the format of 2 pts a win. Today we had a full house of six rinks visiting us from Halfway BC.    The games were keenly fought and the final result was a victory 8 4 for Cambuslang BC
