The following week’s edition published this   https://www.dumbartonreporter.co.uk/news/17395366.dumbarton-burns-club-160th-burns-supper/


The Charity Collection at this year’s Supper raised just  £1285!

Other charitable donations from members who were unable to attend raised this to £1398                                              _______________


Again we held our St. Andrew’s Night in the Dumbuck Country House Hotel. A quick survey of those attending indicated that it was not a successful event. Members complained that the service was slow, the food erratically cooked and the bar service poor.      

The committee, after vetting several venues, have decided that the  

   2020 St Andrew’s Night will take place at Cardross Golf Club.

More details will follow.                                            _______________


Dates for this sessions events are —


The annual Bools Match against/with the Howff boys took place in September. Regrettably this was not well supported by our members.


     This is always a fun event and NO experience of bowling is needed; indeed it may be that some  members could use it as a taster if they ever think of joining a bowling club.Why not give it a try? Next year we are in Dumfries. There will be a visit to the historic Globe Inn where Burns drank and is still the Howff Club’s meeting place.
