Director of BAGMA Keith Christian made the presentation following the curling and said, "We wish Alasdair all the very best for his retirement and thank him for his many years of dedication to both BAGMA and bira. However, we are very pleased that Alasdair will still be supporting us in Scotland with our BAGMA events and shows that he has attended over the years. So we will continue to see him at our golf events, The Royal Highland Show and most of the Scottish shows throughout this year.


"All of us at BAGMA and bira wish Alasdair all the very best for his future and hope that his ‘warm down’ year will be as enjoyable and productive as his previous years with us."
