President's Report
To the members of the Scottish Bowlers’ Fellowship

In every walk of life, it is always the greatest honour of your fellow members to elect you as their President, and this year has been no exception. Being a President is not that of being a figurehead, but as the principal spokesperson for your members in dealing with outside bodies throughout the country. It is a responsibility which I have welcomed with open arms!.

In order that my year in office was the success it was, I would like to thank Immediate Past President Colin McLachlan for his encouragement, to Olive Allardyce our Treasurer and Tom Cassidy my Senior Vice President, for all their advice and friendship. To all the other office bearers, thank you for your support throughout this year.

In September this year we travelled to Jedburgh Bowling Club in the Borders for our annual Tourist game, calling in to Biggar on our way home – a most enjoyable time was had by all. In these games as well as all the others we played during the season, the result – win, lose or draw – doesn’t really count, it’s the friends we have met, that, is the most important! To all the clubs we have played, thank you for hosting these games.

Congratulations to the gents of Mearns Bowling Club on winning the Bennie Cup. Congratulations to the ladies of Newburgh Bowling Club on winning the Jubilee Rosebowl. Well done to both clubs and to all who took part!

To Tom Cassidy, I wish you well for your Presidential year, and I hope all the members will support you.

I look forward to seeing you all at the AGM on the 23rd February 2019.

Yours in Fellowship

John M Lassa
President 2018
