Just a wee reminder of some of the events the clubhouse will be hosting this week.

Tuesday – SCA are meeting with a kayaking group to further develop our relationship with them
Wednesday – Monthly management committee meeting
Thursday – Talk by Colin Campbell on the SCA awards scheme
Friday – Rum tasting night
Saturday – 6 Nations Rugby on the Big Screen (Super Saturday)

Thursday, Friday & Saturday events are open to all members to attend.

If you can help out by spending a few hours at the Club on Sunday please contact George via

The clubhouse was closed on Wednesday & Thursday nights, as it would have been difficult for staff or members to get to and from the clubhouse. We re-opened on Friday night from 5-9pm and then all as normal yesterday. The Club will open as normal today and hopefully all will return to normal on Tuesday night and throughout the rest of the week.

Keep an eye on this website and the various social media sites for updates on opening and the events planned for the coming 7-10 days.

As well as the Pool Sessions and the planned talk on Thursday night by Hugh Kerr, we will also have the Scotland v Ireland 6 Nations game showing on the big screen at 2:15pm on Saturday.

Due to the severe weather the Office Bearers and Bar Convenor chose to leave the clubhouse closed on Wednesday night and again tonight, thereby avoiding the need for Bar Staff & Cleaning Staff to travel in the conditions. We will review the situation during the day tomorrow as regards opening on Friday night.

Adam Graham
Hon. Sec.
