|2013 Greenlees Lunch and Presentation|
"It seem a shame to spoil such a lovely lunch by my having to speak but there are some things which must be said. I would like to thank Bothwell Castle, on your behalf, for a lovely lunch and a very welcome glass of wine on arrival. One of the nice things about the Greenlees Lunch is that you get to visit other clubs – even if it is only one every 27years!!
Before I get on to the main item on the Agenda may I remind everyone about the Fixture Meeting which will be held here on Tuesday 19th November at 10:00 for 10:30. At that meeting we will be welcoming a new team to our competition – namely Ayr Bellisle. It is exciting to have another club joining us. It is against the trend of many competitions which are struggling to get competitors that teams want to join the Greenlees. It says a lot for the reputation of the competition and the friendliness of the participating members.
Now to the main part of the afternoon – the Presentation of prizes. I would like to invite the Lady Captain of Bothwell to do the honours.
The winner of Division 1 is, for the fifth time in succession, Milngavie.
This year they won with 52 points – not however a record as Haggs Castle won with 52 ½ in 2008 albeit Division Three . Congratulations girls I think we will have to find a way of handicapping you to give the rest a chance.
The runners-up were Loudoun. Congratulations – your third year in the competition and after winning the 3rd Division then the 2nd Division you are now the runners-up on the 1st. Perhaps you will knock Milngavie off their perch next year.
Division 2 has a return winner in Douglas Park. Welcome back to Division 1 next year.
Prestwick St Nicholas were the runners-up in Division 2 – much to the relief of Kilmacolm!!
We have had a wonderful season this year and the competition has gone very smoothly. I wish you all well next year both those who will remain in the same Divisions and those who will have new opponents.
I hope you all have a safe journey home and look forward to seeing you at the meeting in November"
