Thanks to everyone who helped out at the Skate UK Halloween party. The kids had a fantastic time.
A bumper 247 figure skaters from all over the UK took part in the 32nd Ayr Open. It was another fitting tribute to Ayr Figure Skating Club who have put in a sterling amount of time and effort over the years. And the latest chapter at Ayr Ice Rink continued the great work. The host club was well represented across a number of different levels with a great turnout. Competing were Abbie McFarlane, Brodie Thorburn, Jianghong Lucky, Ellie McKnight, Ashleigh Wilson, Neve Quinnell, Amy Whittle, Eilidh Dutthorn, Caitlin Mitchell, Rachel Alner, Ben Gilmour, Lauren Dutthorn, Hannah Brown, Aimee Thomas, Zoe Templeton, Ellie Holmes, Heather McBain and Ellie Somerville. A big well done from the club goes to the skaters who made the podium. Ayr successes were: Zoe Templeton, 1st in Beginner Ladies age 9, Caitlin Mitchell, 2nd in Beginner Ladies age 13 and over, Ellie Somerville, 2nd in Level 4 Ladies (open age) and Eilidh Dutthorn, 3rd in Beginner Ladies age 11. All of the Ayr club skaters started skating within the National Ice Skating Associations Skate UK learn to skate programme which runs within Ayr Figure Skating Club on Saturday mornings at the Limekiln Road Ice Rink.
