Bridge Street and  Allanvale Road are both closed until the end of the month for gas repairs.  Apologies for the inconvenience which is out of our control.

It is with sadness that we report that one of our ex members, Ernie Paterson passed away on Friday.   The funeral will be private.

Our coaching sessions have now moved to the Ambassador Indoor Bowling Club next to the swimming baths.  Adults and children sessions are on Tuesdays at 6:30 pm, and children only sessions are on Wednesdays at 4:00 pm.   Juniors will need to join the Ambassador (£10) with each session costing £1.  Adults do not need to commit to membership until October and each session costs around £3.

Our Awards Dinner is on the 5th October at the Ambassador Indoor Bowling Club .  Tickets £17.50 for adults and £10 for children, available from a committee member.

Closing day is on Saturday 22nd September.  Following a fun game of bowls we will have a fish and chip supper, and a reappearance of our favourite troubadours,  Bobby and Debbie.  Be there, or be square !

Experts who know about these things say that the secret to healthy aging  – ie living longer, free from chronic diseases – is finding something you enjoy doing and staying socially active.  Sounds simple ?  Even simpler, the secret is to take up bowls!!! If you know of any retired friend or neighbour, looking for a healthy future, recommend they join the Howie!!

The annual Active Schools Awards in the Troon Concert  Hall saw  Howie Bowling Club come joint second for the  Club of the Year Award which we won in  2017!!  Just pipped by Ayr Curlers who were worthy winners. Also congratulations to their chief coach Kirstie Letton who was awarded an MBE in the latest honours list.
