At the start of the pandemic in March we took the decision to make online access to our news free of charge by taking down our paywall. At a time where accurate information about Covid-19 was vital to our community, this was the right decision – even though it meant a drop in our income.

In order to help safeguard the future of our journalism, the time has now come to reinstate our paywall, However, rest assured that access to all Covid related news will still remain free.

To access all other news will require a subscription, as it did pre-pandemic.  The good news is that for the whole of December we will be running a special discounted offer to get 3 months access for the price of one month. Thanks you for supporting us during this incredibly challenging time

We value our content, so access to our full site is only available on subscription.

Your subscription entitles you to 7-day-a-week access to our website, plus a full digital copy of that week’s paper to read on your pc/mac or mobile device.

And there’s more – your subscription includes access to digital archive copies from 2006 onwards.

A rather grey rainy day on Saturday June 27 resulted in a poor turnout at Tarbert Golf Club for the second round of the President’s Cup and first round of the John Reid Quaich.

The Glenralloch weather didn’t put Lewis Preston off, as he returned 82-25 for 57 nett and a handicap reduction of three. This is the third week in a row that the winning score was in the fifties.

Next was Bruce MacNab, whose 69 saw him qualify in first place in the Presidents Cup on a total of 139. Peter McLean snr was next with a 75, qualifying in second place on 150, with John MacNab in third qualifying spot on 151.

As there is no competition this Saturday, the next is planned for July 11 when the first round of the Archie MacNab Memorial Cup takes place.
