6 rinks of Dundonald members and 10 rinks of invited clubs enjoyed a “pink gin”, courtesy of Club Secretary, Andrew Kerr, before being piped onto the ice by Fergus Goldie, grandson of Honorary President Liz Goldie. After an enjoyable afternoon of curling and banter, captured by the many photos of club member Bill Rae, the curling was concluded with the top 4 rinks from both sections competing to determine the eventual winners.
