Thursday Run Report – October 2022

Thanks to John Wilson for this update:

Another really enjoyable Thursday Run last week!

The rain stayed away at Dobbies allowing for the usual friendly banter and car chat before heading for lunch at the Fairburn Hotel in Mauchline.

The hotel staff were fantastic and did a great job in serving a lovely meal to all 30 of us in good time.

The visit to Kay & Co was most informative and it was intriguing having the opportunity to witness the traditional methods and tools used by the skilled craftsmen to transform the unique Ailsa Craig green and blue granite into the world famous curling stones.

Indeed, there were two shipments awaiting dispatch to Copenhagen and Ontario!

It was also interesting to hear about Princess Anne’s recent visit to the factory.

Many thanks to all the staff at Kay & Co for their time and fascinating commentary and thanks, as ever, to George for organising.
