QUIZ NIGHTS Oct.2001-March 2002
Another successful year for our resident quizmaster Davie Davidson. A big thank-you Davie from all our members and committee. Nice one Squirrel


Director Sam McDougall 1930 - 2001
Another true and loyal member lost to the grand bowling club above. Sam passed away in December after a long and brave fight with cancer. Sam was an active member and Director of the club and was looking forward to being president one day. 
There was a wonderful turnout at Sam's funeral and fittingly the family decided to have the farewell meal and drink at the bowling club.
Our sincere condolences go to his wife Madge, children Scott, Mandy and all the family.
We will all miss Sam at Cambuslang Bowling Club.........
Saturday 16th February 2002 Sam's wife Madge requested that Sam's ashes be scattered at the bowling club and a commemorative plaque be placed in the club grounds. The board of Directors agreed to this and the club opened at 12.30 that day with the ceremony at 1.30pm. Tributes were delivered from our Secretary David Barnett, Past President Bob Clark and Sam's daughter Mandy. 

Our thoughts go to Joe's wife Isobel, son Kenny, daughter Lynn and his grandchildren.

Member Joe Goodlet 1929 - 2001

It is with great sadness I write of the untimely death of one of our members Joe Goodlet. Joe, 72, suffered a massive heart attack outside his home whilst chasing young yobs who had been tormenting Joe and his wife, Isobel by banging on their door and windows for weeks on end. Army veteran and former boxer Joe had undergone heart operations and had a pacemaker fitted. . He was a stalwart member of our bowling club, ever present and very active in bowling circles, which was borne out at his funeral on Tues 16th October by the many many bowlers in attendance.  We will all miss Joe at Cambuslang Bowling Club.......

Sunday 11th November, Remembrance Sunday, Joe's ashes were scattered at the bowling club and a commemorative plaque placed alongside our war memorial. Joe's family and a large turnout of members and friends witnessed the ceremony. A tribute to Joe's memory was delivered by our Secretary David Barnett.

Aug/Sep 2001 Finals .....

Championship Gordon Dick v Harry Faulds. Great final, this was Harry's first time in the final of the championship, Gordon being a past winner, twice already, was always favourite. After two hours with the score 20 - 18 in favour of Gordon, Harry lying the shot and the last bowl.......played a shot to move the jack by 1 or 2 feet which would have gave him 3 shots and the championship...but the jack was sliced and stopped at Gordon's bowl giving him the championship...congratulations Gordon.

May 27th Charity Day.....( Alex MacFarlane memorial )  10th Anniversary
Unbelievable day. A cheque for a whopping 2,005 presented to a Nursing Sister from the Rodger Park Nursing Home.
Twenty-four rinks plus friends ensured the club was very busy with our three bar staff barely able to cope at times. 
Jim Montgomery Jnr, wife Glenda and Harry Faulds worked tirelessly the whole day and it really was a superb effort by everyone.On the 10th anniversary of this tournament it was nice that a Cambuslang team won, skipped by our Match Secrertary Scott Crichton, who was absolutely delighted to have won. Kirkhill bowling club were very worthy runners-up...................See Charity page

Eleven tourers set off to Dublin ( Sam McDougall withdrew through ill health ) and were met at the hotel by our hosts. A few drinks followed then onto the bowling green, our hosts supplied a twelfth man giving us three rinks. A superb evening bowling was followed by a sumptuous meal. Nice pleasantries exchanged and our own Dave Barnett ( acting President ) gifted every member of Clontarf with a CBC tie and badge.

A harmony evening followed and Clontarf member John Murphy entertained the company with his guitar and piano playing, a few of us reciprocated and a brilliant evening was had. A big thanks to Clontarf for their excellent hospitality and to our Secretary for organising a great weekend.

Congratulations to Junior Convenor Terry Connolly and member John McInall. who both passed the SBA club coaching course, which consisted of a written and practical test. 
Both members will put there new skills to good use as they both coach our juniors.
