First Events of 2022

As we approach the end of June, the first half of the Outdoor season has almost gone. The season started with our Opening match at Willow Bank, my home club on the 07th May.

This year I tried to mix the rinks up a little by pairing bowlers from the home club with visitors from our fellowship clubs. The idea was to remind all present that we are all bowlers and equal. Everyone appeared to enjoy themselves and the match result did not matter.

Our second engagement was the invitation by Whitehouse on Grange in Edinburgh to send a rink from the SBF to celebrate their 150th Anniversary on the 18th June.

I would like to acknowledge the generous hospitality which included a buffet lunch in their impressive dining area. A special thanks to their sponsors for the gifts to the attendees which included celebration bowling towels. During the game We took 10 minutes out to relax in the patio area and enjoy the surroundings. This is the first club I have visited where the green is well above the height of the clubhouse entrance.

Our third engagement was renewing our friendship with members in Tulliallan, Kincardine, on the 25th of June. It was great to see some of our younger bowlers playing in the mixed game. A special thanks to the rinks from East Alloa and Edinburgh who helped to make the day by boosting the numbers of the SBF

Playing with the SBF

We would like to increase the awareness of our work and invite other clubs to both play and host games.
