 The Championship final played on rink one was an enthralling game with both players playing excellent bowls. Brian took an early lead but John fought back and eventually he took the lead. The game went to 18-17 and finished with Brian crowned our new champion with a 21-18 victory.

24 Sept 2011 Mixed Ryder Cup

Cambuslang Bowling Club hosted our annual  Mixed Presidentís Ryder Cup tournament on Saturday 24th September which was run by Past President Will McArthur. The format of this tournament is the Gents President Alex Helmís mixed team plays against the Ladies President Ann Phillipís mixed team and everyone plays singles, rinks, triples and pairs. At the end of the tournament both teams had 25 points each but the Ladies Presidentís team had the better shots total and won on the day!  The most valued player in the tournament was Eileen Aird and incredibly the booby prize went to the winning captain, Lady President Ann!  Both Presidents laid on hospitality and looked after everyone admirably, Ann, as usual enthusiastically, ensured everything was perfect and all the players were looked after, to the detriment of her own bowls it seems!  It was taken in good fun and the tournament was a resounding success. The raffle money raised went towards our club refurbishment fund.

 27 Sept 2011  Walter McNair
 It is with deep sadness we were informed today that club member and past Director,
 Walter McNair died this morning.
 Walter was born in Crail Street, Parkhead on 22 July 1942 and attended Riverside
 Secondary School. He worked at the Hoover Factory in Cambuslang where he met
 best friend and good pal Past President Alex Latimer. They were always in each
 others company and were nicknamed 'semmit & drawers'. Walter was also a mason
 and a member of Lodge Buchanan 1499. He was affectionately known in bowling
 circles as 'captain birds-eye' or 'kenny rodgers' for obvious reasons!
    Walter married the love of his life, Myra,
    on 30 Sept 1966 and they were blessed
    with two sons Scott and Stephen.
was a big gentleman and will be sadly missed
    by all at Cambuslang B.C.
Our thoughts are with
    his wife Myra and the family.
