It is said every year, but it is hard to believe that we are yet again at the start of another Curling season.
The committee, board members and other kind volunteers have been busy over the summer and the first thing you will all have noticed is that the outside of the building has been spruced up. A number of the winners’ boards are full so new ones are in the process of being completed, and if they are not up as the season starts, they will be in place very soon. Many odd jobs and general housekeeping chores have been carried out over the recess and our thanks go to the willing and committed club members that carry out these, sometimes very unglamorous, tasks.
On reading through the calendar, you may notice a number of new competition sponsors and we are grateful to sponsors old and new for their committed support. Please put your name down for as many of these competitions as possible, your support is always very much appreciated and there is something for everyone, even if you have never entered anything before – don’t be shy!
To ensure the best possible turnout, we are running the ladies (Addison Pairs), gents (Ashby Pairs) and the mixed pairs (McGawn Pairs) competitions together on the one day. The pair with the highest score on the day will go forward to represent Ayr in the Scottish Pairs championship on 13th -15th March at Stranraer Ice Rink.
The new membership system and associated cards are now up and running along with the facility to pay by card both in the office and at the bar. With these you will be able to pay your membership, Ayr CC Lottery, and bar bill but NOT your ice money. It may take a little time to bed in so please be patient.
Can we remind you, that you must always bring your membership card and place it in the holder at the end of the ice.
