Day 18 was time for their third set of games in Ayr and a win by 3 shots meant a total victory over the tourists by 78 to 74

Our Annual Burns Supper was held on Monday Evening and we were delighted to welcome our American visitors, after their tour of Kays at Mauchline in the afternoon.

It was a very successful night. There were some excellent and very entertaining speeches, with music from the Scottish Fiddle Orchestra and a superb recitation of Tam O' Shanter by Simon Lamb.

The evening was ably chaired by Bobby Ireland and we were also treated to songs and poetry from America to end the night.
