On Friday 8th June, Lodge Members and friends made the annual pilgrimage to Ayrshire where they enjoyed the excellent hospitality of Girvan Golf Club.
The weather was kind allowing the brethren to challenge for the coveted trophy before adjourning to the 19th hole for some well earned refreshments

Once again our thanks go to Bro David Wallace for organising the day which everyone agreed was a great success
