Please come along and support both teams and enjoy the afternoon,
then have a drink our two in the bar while discussing the results.
After the second game and all players have showered and had their meal could as many as possible
stay behind and help set up the hall for the Ceilidh.

The membership fees of £40 for senior players and £10 for juniors are now
due and we will accept payment in stages. We would also like to stress the importance of our Club Lottery in contributing
to our income and would ask you all to play this weekly, its a way of supporting your club and an opportunity to win some
It is not only the players and coaches who contribute
to the success of our club, a lot of work goes on behind the scenes that we sometimes take for granted . A team
on the park depends on the hard work and efforts of all club members.
George McNeish works tirelessly in keeping our clubhouse up to standard ably assisted by many
of our players who also give freely of their time to make repairs to the property. George can also be found behind
the bar on match days and other occasions dispensing great cheer to all.
We turn up on match days to a clean clubhouse and the away teams are treated to excellent
meals prepared and served by Nancy Gourlay and Margaret Whitelaw, the soup is always delicious as is Nancy`s home baking.
Margaret ensures our playing strips are washed and ready for each match. Sincere thanks to you both.
It takes a great deal of money to run our teams and maintain our
clubhouse, in David Herriot we have a treasurer who looks after our finances with great skill, he ensures money is made
available whenever necessary and also that we have funds in the bank.
This money comes from three other main sources of income, we receive a payment from Argyll and Bute Council for providing
changing facilities for other local clubs, however it is the efforts of two other club members who provide a constant income
Our Chairman Barry Martin puts a great
deal of effort into gaining and arranging various lets for our clubhouse including weddings, birthday parties etc. as
well as dog training lessons and fitness classes for adults all providing good monetary income, this takes up a great
deal of his time and often goes without notice, our thanks, well done Barry.
Last but not
least we have Tommy Howat ably running our Club Lottery, he goes round the various outlets every Monday collecting the tickets
and money, supervises the draw and pays out the winnings. Without this source of income we would struggle financially. Thank
you Tommy. We would ask once again for your support by buying tickets for this lotto draw, it offers
good prize money to those who participate.
Once again my apologies to anyone I have omitted from this list, the fault will be entirely mine.
