After the games, the players retired to the Clubhouse for a few refreshments and a fine Buffet which was laid on by the
Greenock & District B.A. and was excellently created by the catering skills of Gourock Park Member, Barry Mc Clafferty
After match speeches were made by John Freeburn, Kerr
Livingston (representing the Sponsors Wylie & Bisset), Norrie Johnstone and Gourock Park President, Hamish Ramsay. The Speech given by 'Basher' Freeburn was tremendous and raised many a laugh as he took advantage of a few unfortunate players who for various reasons, left themselves open for a good old fashioned slagging!.
First victim was Gourock Park's Dougie Brown, who was sporting a full length white mack to protect against the elements, but gave no protection against the on form G&D Secretary. Next up for some treatment was the unfortunate Ian Ferdinard who was Skip of the only triples on the day that suffered a 'Granny' but this was nothing compared to the barracking and good natured slagging given to our S.B.A. District Secretary, Bill Knox, who along with Dougie Brown and Hamish Ramsay, suffered the indignity of losing a 9 (NINE!!!!) in their final triples match of the day.
