Skip Neil reports:

The four rinks that competed in the Semi Finals of this year’s Rinks Championship on Monday 18th January were Dundonald, Galston 1, Galston 2 and Ayr & Alloway.

The Ayr & Alloway rink of Neil Beattie (Skip), Alan Richmond, Geoff Barber and David Scott met the Galston 2 rink of Robert Anderson, Alan Forrest, Lorraine Shaw and Alison Cunningham. The Galston team simply outplayed our Ayr & Alloway team in all departments. We managed to take 3 shots at one end but the other ends demonstrated the faultless play of Galston, We eventually shook hands after 7 ends with the score at 11 – 3 in Galston’s favour. We thought it unlikely that we would take an 8 from them in the last end!

The game was played in a good spirit and the post-match convivialities were enjoyed by all participants.

Galston 2, who have already represented Ayr 3 times in the National Finals in Forfar, played Dundonald in the final and lost, but will still go on to the Forfar Finals.
