NEW CURLING CLUB.

 

A new curling club has been formed in our neighbourhood under the title Sauchie and Canglour Curling Club. The club was constituted at a meeting held in Pirnhall Cottage on Monday evening. Archibald Campbell Esq of Sauchie House was elected president and his lady patroness while Robert Rae Esq of Hallquarter was chosen vice president and William Allan Esq treasurer and secretary. About 20 gentlemen became members of the society and the evening was spent in the utmost good fellowship. The curlers fare, beef and greens, were not a wanting and success to the new club was drunk in tumblers of excellent whisky toddy.

FIRST RECORDED MATCH

 

Sauchie and Canglour Curling Club. On Saturday last, for beef and greens was played on the pond at Craigend between the members on the north and south sides of Auchenbowie Burn. The game was contested in great spirit but ultimately decided in favour of the southern men. The work finished and the ‘substanials’ done justice to, the following toasts were pledged with much enthusiasm in ‘mountain dew’, liberally supplied from Sauchie House. “The Patron of the club, J Lowis Esq of Plean”, “The President, Mr Bulloch”, “B Fisher Esq, Sauchie” and also “Mrs Lowis and Mrs Fisher” in one bumper more. The great unanimity prevailed throughout, each one apparently doing his utmost to enhance the hilarity of the gathering and much credit is certainly due the gainers for their voluntarily offering to defray one half of the expenses incurred.
