The Ayrshire Province organise a number of competitions througout the season. The Province Medal is played with two rinks from each club, with the aggregate shot difference determining the winner.

Ayr & Alloway started Christmas celebrations with a bang! (Apart from the crackers which were environmentally friendly!) What a fabulous night at Prestwick St Nicholas Golf Club, very well organised by Annette Paterson and Liz Tait.

Six rinks made the trip to Stranraer on 1 November 2023. Secretary Liz had done a magnificent job of organising the day, with coffee and scones on arrival, a game of curling followed by soup and sandwich lunch.

The AGM and Prizegiving was held on 22 March 2023 in the ice rink lounge. Lorrie prepared an excellent meal with around 30 attending.

The Pairs Competition took place on 8 March 2023 with a full complement of 16 players. The usual format was adopted, straight knockout, with four stones being thrown by each player, and a game consisting of three ends.

On Sunday 26 February a rink skipped by Ed Baines and comprising Alan McKinlay at 3rd, Allan Chapman at 2nd and Peter Kennedy as Lead played a rink from Fairywell in the Parish Trophy. The Fairywell rink consisted of Sean Rennie (skip), Alan Sloan (3rd), George McNaughton (2nd) and Bill Alexander (Lead).

The whole of Sunday 19th February was a great celebration of Ayr @ 50. This was to mark 50 years of curling at Limekilns Road, when the club moved from the Beresford Terrace Ice Rink to its current home, which was formerly a dog racing track.
