“The Secretary intimated that when going over Stirling Belongings with Mr Cochran in The Bank, the Stephenson Cup,
which had been amissing for a number of years, had been found. This cup was left in the Bank along with the
medals of the Stirling Club and a snuff mill. Mr Cochran also handed over a cup and it was decided that in place of
purchasing a new cup in memory of the late Robert Oswald, that the Stirling Cup should be renamed ‘The Robert Oswald Memorial Trophy’.
It was also agreed that a competition be instituted for the medals handed over by Mr Cochran and that these be competed for by the Junior Skips.
The Secretary went over the list of members and drew attention to a number of members who had allowed their
subscriptions to remain unpaid. These together with members who had taken no active part in the Club were deleted
The Secretary was instructed to send a copy of the Rules to each member of the Committee.”

“Mr Cochran mentioned that a one time Stirling Curling Club had handed to Falkirk Ice Rink the Campbell Bannerman Cup to be competed for as an Open Competition, and thought that if this competition was not included with the other competitions run by Falkirk Ice Rink steps should be taken for the return of the trophy for competition with the Club.”
There was no further reference to this item in any subsequent minutes – so we don’t know what steps were taken !!
