The Curtis Cup match and the Past Players' Match which helped to raise the curtain for the 37th encounter.  The former Curtis Cup players who travelled to Nairn were split into two teams - Scotland and Ireland versus The Rest (who included United States stalwart Carol Semple Thompson who has made most appearances in Curtis Cup matches, both as a player and as a captain).The Scotland/Ireland team won the Neville Trophy and they have pride of place in the above picture taken on the steps of The Nairn clubhouse.


The match was  played on Thursday 7th June -- This is the Neville Trophy, won by the Scots/Irish players from the USA/England/Wales/ -- Thanks go to Mary McKenna for the photograph. (Renfrewshire's Wilma Leburn and Maureen Richmond were both playing)

Bronte Law and his sister Bella

Flashback to last Sunday and a picture - even though it's slightly out of focus with the moving figures and taken from some distance away - that's worth publishing because it encapsules the unbounded joy of GB and I winning for the first time since 1996. 
That's Bronte Law with her back to the camera and that's her kid sister Bella, obviously delighted and excited, as she runs towards her.
Stephanie Meadow, who had just clinched victory for GB and I, is just behind Bella Law.
