very last time at Carrick Sports Club. The Club is one of one of
Maybole’s best known assets but it looks set is set to close its
doors after almost 40 years. Its Management Committee have given
members notice of the annual general meeting which will be held on
Wednesday February 26 at 8pm. They have also given notice of the
calling of a Special General Meeting of the Club membership to be
held immediately after the AGM.
On Saturday, September 9th 2006 members of
Carrick Sports Club marked what would have Buddy
Holly's 70th birthday. Buddy Holly was born on September 7, 1936 and
was tragically killed on February 3, 1959 although for many his
music still lives on. Maybole's own rockabilly band "The
Peas" performed and the resident DJ, known to be a Buddy Holly
fan, provided a good night of old fashioned rock'n'roll.
From The Carrick Gazette. June 2005. - Some birthdays or anniversaries
deserve a bit more recognition than others, and that goes not only for
people, but for organisations as well. This weekend is the 30th anniversary of Maybole's Carrick
Sports Club, or The Speakers Club as it's still known to many. The Carrick Speakers Social Club was officially opened on
Friday, June 20th 1975 by the then member of parliament for South
Ayrshire, Jim Sillars. The Club was the beginning of a new organisation in
Maybole, and it also marked the fulfilment of much hard work and
dedication by many people during the previous two years.
It may not have been the biggest tribute to the memory of
Elvis Presley, but it was certainly one of the most entertaining.

The King of rock ‘n roll.. Read the story and view the
