Troon is also hosting the 2012 Joint Meeting of the Ayrshire Family History Societies on Tuesday 20th March at 7:30 pm, at St. Meddan's Church Hall, Church Street, Troon, KA10 6HT. The topic by Bruce Durie is 'The Golfers - Updating Charles Lees' Famous Painting' - a painting I'm very familiar with, being one of the students who updated it! There's more about the project at http://scottishancestry.blogspot.com/2010/07/golfers-painting-recreated.html
