Annual Prize Giving

A good night was had by all at the annual prize giving held this year at Somerset Park. Over 50 people attended in what turned out to be an ideal venue. After the formalities were dealt with  there was the usual launch of change at the whisky bottle, some dancing and a few classic karaoke moments. It also seems that some people have a bad raffle habit which is great for club funds...
 As you can see the Kilmarnock contingent were happy to have been caught on camera with a signed Ayr Utd top in the vicinity. There was some chat about a telephone bid from the Rugby Park, a taxi and some firelighters.
