Rink 1 – John Macleod ( skipped for Peter Kennedy ) Maureen McVey 3rd,Peter Christy 2nd and John Beaton lead. Auchincruive turned up with only 3 players but had a very good start by taking 3 shots in the first end. In the 2nd end we got 2 shots back to reduce the deficit. Auchincruive fought back and gained a single shot in the 3rd end to regain a 3 shot advantage. However, Ayr & Alloway took the next 4 ends bringing the final score of 13 to 4. Our team played very well on keen ice and no lucky rubs for the Auchincruive rink.
Rink 2 for Ayr & Alloway was Neil B (Skip), Linda W, Alan McH and Pat McLeod. The opposition was Malcolm Smith (Skip), Michael Hitchon, Kevin McIsaac and John Tweddle. Ayr & Alloway made a good start with a 3 at the first end but Auchincruive crept back in 1’s thanks to some brilliant drawing by Malcolm to level the game after 4 ends. Ayr & Alloway built up two big ends then but Malcolm cut them back to singles. The last end saw Ayr & Alloway defending a single stone in the head to deprive Auchincruive of a big end, giving them only a 2 so the game ended as a peal at 5 shots each.
In a convivial get together afterwards the latest Past President, Linda, spoke of the enjoyable evening and thanked Auchincruive for their warm friendship. Malcolm congratulated Ayr & Alloway for their win and thanked them for the excellent match.
