.The County Cup was presented to Gourock Park at the club on Friday 27th August. This was a proud moment for all at Gourock Park, as its the first time the club has been honoured to win such a prestigious piece of bowling history.
The Trophy and medals were presented to Gourock Park and also to players from Johnstone BC, who were Runners-up and to a Rink from Arthurlie BC, who were the highest up on the day.
The players then took to the greens for a Gourock Park versus Johnstone Wapinschaw which was won by the Johnstone Club with a score of 60 shots to 54 shots, before retiring to the clubhouse for a superb buffet spead, prepared by the hard working Ladies of Gourock Park.
Since this was originally writen its been discovered that Gourock Park actually won this trophy sometime in the 1950's
