Vice President Ronnie reports as follows on the inter club match between Ayr & Alloway and Gangrels played on Tuesday 17 February 2015.
The two Ayr & Alloway rinks were made up as follows:-
Ronnie Wilson (Skip), Peter Kennedy, Alan McHarg & Lynne Bowman
John MacLeod (Skip), David Gray, Linda Wilson & John Beaton
The two Ayr rinks found they were up against players who were very much “on their game” and getting some luck as well. Ronnie’s game started poorly losing the first four ends but then a spark of competitive spirit emerged and they took the fifth with a three. Thereafter the game continued to be close with single shots being won resulting in a final win by the Gangrels with a score of 8 to 4 the Gangrels winning 6 out of the 8 ends.
John’s game was similar in the quality of the opposing rink with generally single point scores except for a loss of four in the fourth end. Frustration got the better of David when Linda who was sweeping a perfect stone from John stopped, hearing a call of “Whoa” which she thought was from David but turned out to be from her husband Ronnie in the adjacent rink! David was reported to be incandescent! The final score in this game was 8 to 3 in favour of the Gangrels winning 5 out of the 7 ends. No lucky rubs for the A & A rink!
In a convivial get together thereafter President Ronnie Peat of the Gangrels thanked Ayr & Alloway for an enjoyable match and recounted the results of the past few encounters when Ayr & Alloway had prevailed, expressing the feeling that on this occasion it was time for the Gangrels to deserve a win. President Peter thanked the Gangrels for the enjoyable match commenting that Ronnie (Peat) had really said it all. Ten players enjoyed a meal thereafter.
