Ayr & Alloway won this competition in 2009, the first time in their history. There are always some very good rinks taking part, with the winner being decided by the aggregate score of the two rinks from each club.

Charlie Steele skiped Rink 1,with Alan McKinlay, John McLeod and Anne Patterson. We were up against a strong Fairlywell rink, skipped by Mark Pieroni. It was an excellent contest until the last end, with A&A losing a 4 to do down by 9 shots to 4.

Jim Nelson skipped Rink 2 and had a creditable win.
