The Carrick Chess club have resumed meetings for the new season with Siegrun MacGilchrist (70) winning the trophy of the Ayrshire Challengers with 4.5/5. The club seems to have enough members for the league but Siegrun says that some members tend to go on holiday a lot so it would be nice if they could get some brave new members to join them in Maybole Town Hall on Wednesdays from 7pm-10pm.

The league season doesn’t start until November so there is plenty of time to learn how to play. Pictured above from left to right are: Eric MacKinnon, Athol Macgilchrist, Charlie Roy, Siegrun Macgilchrist, Dr. Kenneth Brooksbank and Steell MacFadzean.
