Fitting Out Supper

The Club was packed out last Saturday for the fitting out supper.  This was the first time we have used the new caterers for a hot buffet, and it was very successful – there was nothing left at the end, anyway!  We also held a prize raffle and for some reason John was especially keen on getting his hands on one particular prize…

The evening was buzzing and busy, here are some pictures: » Read more

Burn’s Night 2017

The great and the good (not to mention, some of the others too) gathered on Saturday 28th January to celebrate Burn’s Night.  The Chart Room was completely full for the meal, which started with the welcome and Selkirk Grace given by the Commodore, followed by a first class Scotch broth.  The excellent haggis was addressed and cut by our President and was then demolished, with plenty for seconds and even thirds for the adventurous.  The meal was topped off with cranachan cheesecake / whisky trifle and a toast to the lassies was given by Ken Robinson, with Carrie Thompson responding on behalf of the lassies.  It’s something of a miracle that Ken made it through the night, considering Mary’s dagger stare could have cut a haggis!  Finally, the Membership Secretary gave a fine rendition of the Drunken Scotsman.
