Carrying on from the success of the first Curry and Quiz Night on 7 December Vicky and Rob are organising another one to take place on Saturday 15 February at 7pm.  There will be a great selection of curries from Priya’s Palace and a fun quiz with a hint of Valentine’s trivia.  Tickets cost £15 per person and can be purchased at the Bar.

 

On Robert Burns’ Birthday (25 January) the ‘Bard at the Boat Club’ event took place to celebrate the legacy of Scotland’s Bard.

Around 60 participants set down to a traditional Burn’s Supper buffet followed by entertainment.  This was a Burn’s Supper with a modern twist.  Hugh and Clair Kerr started the celebration of Burns with an superb rendition of Tam O’shanter (including horse!).  Music and song was provided by Al Black, Gordon McKenzie and a duet consisting of Rose Sloan and Tom Kater. The spoken word was provided by Lesley McLaren who read a Liz Lochhead poem and Stephen Watt, a modern day beat poet from Dumbarton.  Stephen recited 3 of his own poems.  The assembly ended a rousing rendition of Auld Lang Syne.

A raffle was held and those attending were exceptionally generous in donating prizes and purchasing tickets.

After the Bard at the Boat Club those present settled down to watch SUNSHINE ON LEITH and many sang along to The Proclaimers songs that run through this film.

Thank you to all who attended this event.  Congratulations and gratitude to those who organising this event and provided help .

Profits from this event will be used to support the RWSABC Development Fund.

Due to unforeseen circumstances we have had to postpone Andy Morton’s talk, planned for 22nd Jan, until 11th March. See revised programme below.

Tickets for this event will go on sale in the Club bar at 5:30pm on Friday 10th Jan.

Ticket price will be confirmed by Tuesday 7th January.

On a similar basis to Hogmanay, there will be a limit of 4 tickets per member initially, tickets have to be paid for in the Bar before your name will go on the list, there is a limit of 66 tickets and there will be a Waiting List. There will also be allocated seating, to make sure we all fit into the Hall.

There is an opportunity for impromptu performances by some of the gathered company during dinner of haggis, neeps & tatties. Then we will be entertained by a number of performances from members and guests.

The evening will end with the showing of a complimentary movie, that may have something to do with the weather over the northern suburbs of Edinburgh, and is likely to result in impromptu singing by the gathered company.
