Thursday 27th July 2006:Gillian McGinlay goes thro' to the semi finals of the County Rosebowl

County player Gillian McGinlay today won the first round of the County Rosebowl at Cochrane Castle in a very exciting match against Janette McCartney from Erskine. The very close game finished all square on the 18th. So the girls had to head for the 19th hole in the searing heat wondering whether their batteries would last!  Both had pars at the 19th and both lipped out for par at the 20th. The 21st was halved in birdies and Gillian finally managed to win at the 4th extra hole in style with another birdie to Janette's par.
Cochrane Castle
was in great shape considering the weather.
Good luck to Gillian in her next round. ------- Thanks Janette for this report

Gillian now meets Anita McMillan ( Erskine)  and Carol Fell (Ranfurly Castle) plays  Valerie McKinnon (Old Ranfurly) in the other Semi Final

Thursday 13th July 2006: RLCGA's Rosemary Reedie's husband is knighted

Craig Reedie, the former chairman of the British Olympic Association, was knighted yesterday at Buckingham Palace yesterday.
Sir Craig, from Bridge of Weir, Renfrewshire, was appointed Knight Batchelor in recognition of his role in helping secure the 2012 Olympics for London. It was an upgrade from his CBE for services to sport.
He had met the Queen several times during his 13 years as BOA chairman, including when she entertained the International Olympic Committee at the palace but yesterday's mode of dress was remarked on by her. "She has hosted a number of events here," explained the kilted Reedie. "She said: 'I didn't recognise you dressed like that'."
He was an unsung hero of London's bid, from the BOA's launch in 1997 through to his delivery, in French, as part of the presentation team which secured the vote over Paris last year. He regards the honour as one for the whole BOA staff: "Everyone worked very hard," he said.
He added that London's preparations were going extremely well and said: "If we can do as well as Sydney or Athens, I'd be happy. I think we can put on a marvellous event."

Thanks to the Glasgow Herald for the report
