The Isle of Bute Pool League 2014 presentation and prize giving took place on Friday, June 6, in Gamba’s Bar, bringing to an end another successful season.
Mike McHardy, the IoBPL president, opened the presentation by welcoming everyone in attendance and continued with a short speech covering some of the season’s statistics which seem to indicate the potential for growth in terms of team numbers or even for new venues joining the league.
League winners Kingarth 1 - comprising Chez Harrison, Ritchie More, Richard Reid, Gavin Wilson, Gary McGregor and Capt. Gordon McMillan - were presented with their league trophy and individual awards by Paul Tweedley of Gamba’s Bar, sponsors of the league.
League runners up were The Struan 1, whose team included Robbie Docherty, and Capt. Robert Docherty. Not present for the prize-giving were D. Brown, G. Cumming, D. Speirs, W. McKirdy and J. McArthur.
The Golfers 2 were awarded a special ‘Bottom of the League’ trophy and this was collected by the only member of the team present, Tommy Walmsley.
Ladies Individual winner was Debbie McQueenie of Gamba’s 1, Under 21s Individual was Shaun Kernaghan of Golf Club 1, and League Individual was Richard Reid of Kingarth 1.
