TT101-004In the last edition of Twelve Talk, mention was made of the inception of what became the annual Bowls Challenge Match between No XII and 1121. It was away back in 1990 that it all started. After a little digging around at  home, I found the press picture and story which marked the launch of the challenge.

Bro John Paton and I were the respective RW Masters at the time and, as you can clearly see, we have not changed a bit in the intervening  27 years. Sadly, Bro Ian Miller, the presenter of the trophy, and Bob Richardson, The Ardgowan Club President have passed to the Grand Lodge Above. The photo was taken in front of the Clubhouse at Ardgowan.

It is worthy  of note that in 3 years’ time we shall have the 30th Anniversary of the Challenge Match. This is no mean feat these days and says a lot for the commitment of the Brethren in both Lodges. We should try to make the match in 2020 a real special occasion.
