Competition success for 2013

The members of Lodge Galen had double cause for celebration this year.   

On Thursday 30th May, Bro's John Smith & George Lyle, both past masters of Lodge Galen, won the final of the 2013 annual Whist Competition lifting the coveted "John Adams trophy". 

The final was held in the halls at Ardery Street, Patrick, Glasgow and was hotly contested with Lodge Salfire No 1505 coming in a close second lifting the "Denholm Cup" and Lodge St John Whiteinch taking 3rd place and the "Grant Cup".

On Wednesday 30th October 2013, the Annual General knowledge Quiz was held in the halls at Ardery Street, Partick, Glasgow. This popular event once again saw the hall filled with brethren, both old and young, to the extent that the starting time had to be slightly delayed to allow more tables to be laid out.    

After a hard fought 5 round competition, which included questions on Sport, Entertainment, History and Masonic general knowledge, Lodge Galen came out on top with a score of 49 points to take the 2013 crown.

Coming in a very close 2nd on 47 points was Caledonian Railway Lodge No 354, with Lodge Union No 332 in 3rd place.
