 Oct 7th 2006  Closing Day  2:00pm
       There was a short presentation of prizes prior to the closing day bowling match, I also took the opportunity to thank the members for their tremendous support throughout the bowling season, especially at our parish games.
Over thirty members came along to the closing day and we enjoyed a lovely afternoon's bowling, a few drinks, then Scotland gubbed France 1-0 at Hampden !!
        Well that's the bowling season over ..... I have been very honoured to have  represented Cambuslang BC as President, a club I joined in 1989 and one I have great affection for. I have had great support all year from the members and special mention must go to Derek McCutcheon & Alex Hardie who have worked tirelessly all year in and around the club. I also thank my Board of Directors and again special mention goes to Match Secretary Harry Faulds, Greens Convenor Peter Phillips, VP Jim Low, Treasurer Alex Helm and Hon President Jim Montgomery Sen. It would have been very difficult without their wonderful support.
         We now move into the 'close season' and monthly cabaret's and quiz nights, I hope the members continue to support the club, unfortunately with my 'band' commitments I will miss most of the cabarets but thanks are also due to our Social committee who continue year on year to bring much needed revenue into the club.......... President Will.McArthur

 Sept 24th 2006 Kirkhill BC v CBC  2:00pm
This is Kirkhill BC Centenary year and we were delighted to take five rinks to our near neighbours.
Kirkhill Bowling Club opened in 1906 and Cambuslang Bowling Club was one of their main sponsors and indeed we played our very first parish game against each other in 1906 which made this venue very important to the two Presidents.

President Will McArthur of Cambuslang BC & President Morris Smith of Kirkhill BC have been friends for over 20 years and both of them eagerly awaited today's game. Cambuslang BC presented Kirkhill with a commemorative centenary gift and both Presidents exchanged club badges symbolically cementing the friendship between both clubs.
The weather was very wet and the green conditions stopped play after 4 ends. The rest of the afternoon was spent renewing old friendships and talking of the old days. Hopefully this fixture will be played for another 100 years.
