Another Charity Day has passed us by, with another great effort by all of those involved. £3,168.32 was the figure raised for The Yard, which is fantastic considering that we ‘adopted’ them so late in the year.

Committee has just had their first meeting of the ‘new year’ and have had the usual discussion about how it went, could we do anything better, who will we support next year etc.

A suggestion was made that perhaps we should look at supporting a charity, not for just the usual one year, but longer term, perhaps over 3 to 5 years. This way we would be able to strike up a better relationship with the charity and work together to try and take the fundraising to a new level.

This is where you come in!

We are looking for (a) some feedback on the idea of sticking with one charity for a longer period and (b) some suggestions of charities we could support.

For question (b) please remember that the charity should preferably be:

(i) local (Edinburgh, the Lothians, central belt and perhaps Fife) or, if it is a national charity, have a local element to it; and

(ii) it must be a registered charity, registered with OSCR.

Please pop any feedback or suggestions you may have on a piece of paper and post it through the office door or e-mail me at thesecretary@murrayfieldindoorsportsclub.co.uk

Closing date for feedback is Monday 15 January 2018.

East of Scotland League EGM - Wednesday 24/6/2015 @ 7pm

Posted on: 15/06/2015

As per an official request signed by 12 members of the league, we are required to hold an Extraordinary General Meeting with the sole purpose of amending Rule 3 of the constitution to ensure that anyone bowling in the East of Scotland League will be a member of MISC for the entire duration of a season.

The constitution currently states

“3. Membership and Eligibility

Teams – The membership of this league shall consist of any number of teams duly elected as provided for by section 12b of this constitution.

Individual – Each team member must pay the current league entry fee and at the time of registration be a member of M.I.S.C or on the waiting list or a member of staff to qualify for the complete league program. ”

The proposed amendment would look like this.

"Teams - The membership of this league will consist of any number of teams duly elected as provided for by section 12B of this constitution.

Individuals - All team members must be members of Murrayfield Indoor Sports Club. For existing members, renewal of membership is effective from 1st February each year, and members must renew their membership no later than the 28th February.  If a member has not, for whatever reason, renewed his/her membership by 28th February then he/she is not eligible to play in any league/competition until such time as he/she has been re-admitted to membership of Murrayfield Indoor Sports Club by the club committee at which time he/she will be eligible to play in future League and Competition events.

If any league member  who has not renewed his/her membership by 28th February, played in an East of Scotland League or Competition during the month of February then any score recorded will not count for League or Competition purposes.  If it is found that a player was not eligible to play, no score will be recorded and any points adjusted accordingly.”

This amendment would also remove the current mention of people on the waiting list being eligible to play, as this is in direct contradiction with the M.I.S.C constitution.

This amendment will require a two thirds majority of all people present and voting at the EGM. Unlike the AGM it is not compulsory for all teams to attend, however as always to ensure your voice is heard please come along and share your opinion if you wish.

I will be getting in touch with all team captains and league reps to ensure everyone is aware of the meeting. 
I hope this will be a swift meeting to amend this glaring hole in our current constitution.
If anyone has anything they think is relevant to the above amendment or any questions about this or any other league business, please contact me at eos.secretary@gmail.com
Ross Williams
East of Scotland League Secretary/Treasurer

Thomas Whitelaw (Tam the Doorman) 1937 – 2015

It is with sadness that I advise of the passing of Tam on Sunday 6th of June 2015.  Tam was doorman and a well-known face in the Club from 1999 until retiring in 2012 and even then continued to "escape" up to the Club for an evening "just to get away from EastEnders and Coronation Street" as he would say but also to enjoy a light refreshment.
Our condolences are passed to his wife Isabel and family at this sad time.

Direct Debit Scheme

Posted on: 11/01/2015

...sign up now to pay for next year’s subs (2016)!


Complete the Direct Debit Instruction form, including your name, address and e-mail address, and then return it to the Club. This is your instruction to your bank to permit us to debit your bank account. We’ll take care of everything else.


  • Automatic renewal – we’ll renew your subs each year and confirm this to you by e-mail.
  • Spread the cost – we will debit your account on the TENTH of each month from May this year through to February next, then repeat that each year until you ask us to stop. Before we start a new year, we will e-mail you to tell you exactly how much we will be taking and on what date we will debit your account. If you happen to be one of the lucky ones who will benefit from half price subs in the next year or so, don't worry, this will be taken into account and your Direct Debit payment reduced accordingly.

For the avoidance of doubt: you will be paying your subs in advance each year.

  • Pay next year’s subs at this year’s rate – if the members increase the subs at the AGM in November we won’t chase you for the difference (if they reduce the subs, we’ll pay you back!).
  • Pay multiple subs in one instruction – e.g. dad can pay for mum, dad and the kids

While we know he wants to keep things very low-key, the Club notes that Trustee and Life Member Jimmy Laidlaw will be 60 years young this Saturday 5th April. He's the original "tax baby". "What's a tax baby?" you may ask. Back in the day, dad received a full year's tax allowance for a child born anytime in that year. Very cleverly sixty years ago Mrs Laidlaw managed to produce Jimmy on the very last day of the tax year. So that's where Jimmy gets his brains from then! Congratulations Jimmy - have a great day.

Monday 25th June to Friday 29th June

This could be your last chance to bowl before we close for 'Trades'. Therefore, Committee have agreed to reduced bowling rates (£1 per game) on these nights from 6pm 'til close. Not only that, why not bring along some of your non-member mates and they will enjoy the same rate as you?

Note: normal signing-in rules and 'Junior' restrictions will apply.

Friday 29th June - Turbo Poker

Anyone who played this format the last time will know just how enjoyable this was! If this is of interest to you, then please remember to get along early to secure your place, as it is first come first serve and it is expected to be busy. Also remember that the Turbo Poker is open to non-members (subject to correct signing in procedures) but is restricted to ADULTS ONLY.

Monday 2nd July to Friday 13th July - CLUB CLOSED


However, when we open back up on Saturday 14th July you should hopefully have a shiny new bar!

However, if you are going to the Madonna concert, please remember we are here for a drink beforehand? All adult members can sign in four non-member Madonna fans, but should there be a bus load of you, then please let me know and we can sort something out.
