On behalf of the Board a big "thank you" to everyone who played in the Day leagues and the corresponding knock out games during the season just finished and also to Ronnie Peat for keeping the website updated with all the results.
In days past the Board provided a buffet supper for the Day League participants but, apart from representatives of the winning clubs, the main beneficiaries of the supper were the curlers taking part in the Hugh Fergusson Competition. Last year, and again this year, the Board provided free ice for the knock out finals and a buffet lunch afterwards at which the Day League trophies were presented to the winning clubs. We think that this is a more appropriate way of expressing our gratitude to the Day League curlers.
There were a couple of relegation issues still to be resolved at the time of the presentation of trophies and I can now confirm the final positions :-
A League : won by Galston with Ayr relegated
A League Knock Out : won by Sorn
B League : Dundonald promoted with Darvel relegated
B League Knock Out : won by Dundonald
C League : Cumnock promoted with Kyle & Carrick relegated
C League Knock Out : won by Troon Portland (1)
D League : St Leonard's (3) promoted with Kirkoswald relegated
D League Knock Out : won by Gangrels (2)
E League : Auchincruive promoted
E League Knock Out : won by Troon Portland (4)
The full league positions can be found on the Ayr Curling Club website.
I hope that everyone enjoyed their participation in the season just finished and will enter again next season. In the meantime I trust you will all have a good summer.
Yours in curling
