Forty Eight of the touring party convened in Ayr on Friday 27 February for our second annual reunion.
Some could not be there as they were playing in the Scottish Rink Championship Finals, and some were on holiday.
After a welcome drink and a light lunch, we took to the ice for a series of two end games, with a couple of breaks to stack the brooms.
Two teams were level after ten ends of fiercely competed curling. It came down to ends won and Harry Dodds’ team of Bill Crawford, Richard Mackenzie and Bill Duncan came out on top.
Time for a quick drink, a taxi to the hotel, a quick change and then we met for dinner.
A great evening of socialising and chat then followed.
Whilst the tour book is now complete, it was not available to read due to a delay in delivery from the printer. However, it is now with Chris Ormerod for final checks. It should be ready for distribution at the RCCC AGM in June.
In the morning we met for breakfast and said our goodbyes, with thoughts already moving on to our next reunion in Kinross in February 2016.
Our thanks go to Andrew Kerr for all his organising to make sure the reunion event was a great success.
