,three seasons in one day, weather.

Please ensure you arrange games accordingly--You do not want to be scored out for not playing in time.

Opening of Green 2016

Green was opened 9 April 2016 , with Ruaridh throwing the first jack.
The day and evening were well attended and I must take this time to thank the bar
staff, and members who made the soup and sandwiches. This help, made the day go effortlessly
and without any fuss. It is through everybody pulling their weight, and doing what they can
that events run smoothly. Well done to all.
It was good to see that the committee arranged for a good weather. The weather held up
and a great day was had by all.
A special welcome to any new member who attended and the old members who have made a return
Hat games start monday 11 April, 1830hrs start.


A charity quiz night being held within the clubhouse Friday 11 March 2016,

AGM 2016

Successful meeting held 21/02/16 when 32 members attended. All went well and accounts
accepted as audited.
Agreed from a resolution put forward by Muriel Sinclair, that fund raising
would be held during the year to purchase a defibrilator for use by members of the club and the
wider public. Fund raising to be held through the year, led by Muriel, and Caroline Duncan.
lets hope it is never used.
Training hopefully to be arranged through Alan Kerr and local fire station.

Grant assistance

Thanks must go to Viridor Credits and Community Windpower BeGreen for their support and assistance in offering and supplying a grant for the upkeep of the club roof.
Without their support the damage would have remained unrepaired and the club would have undoubtedly been the worst for wear.

Dunbar Bowling Club will be forever in their debt.

The work on the roof will allow us to maintain the running of the bowling club for the use of the community.
The new session for young bowlers in association with Mr Gordon McKenzie (Deputy Head Dunbar Primary School) has been pencilled in for the end of April 2014
for carpet bowling sessions within the school and then subsequently coaching sessions at the bowling club from early May.
All interested newcomers are welcome.

congratulations 125 years 1888-2013
