It will be our home match and will be at the Big Green. Any member willing to play in this fun event please contact us – any bowling experience would be a novelty.
We are delighted to say that the long-awaited new edition on the ‘History of Dumbarton Burns Club’ has been printed and a copy was given to each member who attended the 2018 Supper. All other members should now have received a copy, if your copy is missing please contact us. We intend to get a few copies hard bound and after a visit to the bookbinder the cost has been established at £16. This is for a stitched book with hard binding with the same illustrations on the outer cover as the soft version members already have.
If you require a copy please contact us ASAP as the order will be sent to the bookbinder just after the AGM .
