The earliest known records of bowls are in the minutes of the AGM of the Seil and Luing Recreation Club held on 19 April 1962. The bowlers were a sub-section of this Club. In March 1964 Easdale Carpet Bowling Club was constituted as a separate organisation and full records of its activities from then onwards are recorded.
The game is played on a table 24 feet long and 3 feet wide using unbiased wooden bowls and the game and its terminology have many affinities with curling. A team (rink) normally consists of four players each playing 2 bowls. In addition singles and doubles competitions are played, mostly with 6 bowls.
The club meets on Monday and Thursday evenings from late October until Easter and plays for a variety of trophies. It also plays in a league with Benderloch, Connel, Craignish, Kilmore, North Connel and Taynuilt. On the first Saturday in February the club hosts an Open Doubles competiton.
The present officebearers are President – Graham Campbell; Secretary – John Blackstock and Treasurer – David Nathan.
The club is always pleased to welcome new members – come and try it in the Autumn.
