The British Isles Championships are being held this week at Worthing and Gourock Park has a reporter on site. Ian Brown, one of the infamous Gourock Park Four, is there and has sent me this quick update.

Scotland have reached tomorrow's Finals in Junior Singles, Singles and Fours. The Pairs lost in their Semi-Final and the Triples lost in the first round. Bruno also mentioned that on board the same flight down to Gatwick, were Jim Watt and Daly Thomson!. I wonder if they knew there was a celebrity on board?

                                               Site Information
It has come to my attention that some people may not be seeing the most current pages within this site!  This site is updated almost every day and to ensure that your browser (internet explorer, chrome, firefox etc) is displaying the most recent update, its advised to 'refresh page' each time you visit.  The way I do this is to hold CTRL and click on the refresh button. (This is highly advisable on pages that change frequently, ie league, news, championship results etc)

One example of this is my sba page!  Someone mailed me yesterday about my poll on that page being incorrect but that POLL was removed from that page almost two weeks ago!!!  Meaning that they were not seeing the most recent changes to the page!

Confused???  Ask me about this the next time you see me around the district and/or have a look at this site!

Update 12.48!  Scotland have beaten England to win the British Isles Championship 2010.

Congratulations to Sandy Reddy and George Felgate on winning the Fort Matilda Open Pairs. Congrats also to the RBA West team have won through to the Semi-Final of the Hamilton Trophy and play Lanarkshire South ( former winners - 2008 ) on Sunday 18th July  at Perth West End BC.

Couple of pictures from John Freeburn, that show RBA, President, Gerry McAllister, Port Glasgow President, George Brydon and Port Glasgow members, Willie Killens and John Burns, who were presented with their 100th RBA Caps at a recent County game.  John Freeburn's RBA Finals report will be added to the site asap.

The Renfrewshire West Team lost narrowly by 120 to 118 against Lanarkshire South in the Semi-Final of the Hamilton Trophy.  The Lanarkshire Team now face Mid Lothian on Bainfield next Sunday.

Gourock Park's Terry Duffy, Alex Cunningham & John Kane won the Wellington Triples yesterday.

Have decided to close the Gourock Park Facebook page in favour of another slightly different page that anyone can read (Even if they are not signed up to it)  Existing facebook friends are requested to go to the new pages and click on the like button to join.   The new facebook page can be accessed here!

Looks like only Bogleha's Triples remain after the first two day of the National Finals at Ayr. They now play  Auchinleck on Friday morning. I wish them well and hope they do well.  In the Ladies Finals all the teams are out. 

Due to my recent bout of Flu, I was unable to cover several events over the weekend. If anyone has any pictures for these and any other bowling event? Then send it in for publication on this site!  OR use the 'Clubscene' , which allows anyone to write their own news, results etc direct to the site.
