Congratulations to Renfrewshire on winning the Inter-County Match week at Cardross.  My thanks to all the Ayrshire team members who tried so hard to keep hold of the salver we won last year, but it was not to be - there will always be next year!!  My thanks also to Vice-Captain Sheila and President Eila for their on-going support and encouragement, to all those who gallantly pulled trolleys, some twice in one day! and for the cards and good wishes sent by members.  Next year's meeting will be held at Bothwell Castle, Lanarkshire, where I hope to see lots more trolley-pullers and supporters.
