Saturday 15th June
All the teams from around the Province of Renfrewshire West assembled at the Grosvenor Bowling club at 9:45 am to compete for the Orr Trophy.
A total of 12 teams took the greens expecting a heavy rainfall which thankfully did not come to anything and as the morning went on it actually started to brighten up.
No XII had 2 teams entered for the trophy.
|Team 1||Team 2|
|RWM Bob Crossan||Bro David Stevenson|
|Bro Robert Paterick||Bro Kenny Morrison PM|
|Bro Campbell Barr PM (Skip)||Bro George Felgate (Skip)|
In the first session our Team No 1 managed to win quite comfortably after a little 'scare' in the middle of the match. Team No 2 won their first game very comfortably.
We then headed back into the clubhouse where we were treated to a cup of tea and bacon or square sausage rolls, courtesy of Bro Richard Kennedy of Lodge Doric Kilwinning No 68, Thanks Ricky..
Then it was back out to the greens to play a different team. Team No 1 chances of winning the trophy kept going until the very last bowl, but sadly we lost by 1 shot, our chance had gone. Team No 2 however still playing very well managed to win their second match and also meant they were in with a chance of taking the trophy home.
The score were computed by our good friend Bro John Freeburn of Lodge Inverkip Ardgowan No 1425, who had organised the whole day once again with his usual efficiency, thank you John.
John announced the winner and it was our Team No 2, so Lodge Greenock Kilwinning No XII will once again be engraved on the fine old trophy for the year 2019.
As RWM I decided to join in the presentation as the photograph shows, Team No 1 and Team No 2 together receiving the trophy.
