Vandalism [posted 25/02/15]

It was disappointing to discover, this morning, that the clubhouse has been vandalised.  Three of the front windows (see below) have been broken, with glass debris littering the spectator seating area.  Fortunately it appears that it was "just" an act of vandalism, and not a break-in, or attempted break-in, and in each instance only the outer of the two panes in the double-glazed unit was broken meaning that the clubhouse itself remains wind and water-tight.  Thanks to Russell Lauder and Kenneth Robertson for their work today in dealing with the matter, for liasing with the Police, and beginning the process of organising repair work.

Quiz Night, Saturday the 24th of January [posted 04/01/15]

We're kick-starting 2015 with a Quiz Night, and want to encourage as many people as possible to come along.  The date's Saturday the 24th of January, and the start time's 7.30pm.  There'll be food (all halal) served, a raffle, and the quiz qill run until around 11.30pm.  Teams of five are needed, with tickets priced at £10 a person (or - obviously - £50 per team).  This includes the cost of the food.  We're looking for up to twenty teams which'd be 100 people.  The quiz is a great opportunity to bring friends and family along to the club, for a fun and relaxed event.  And, twenty teams is actually only twenty members bringing four friends each - how hard's that!  Please let Emily Coyle, Kenneth Robertson, Keith Sheridan or Keith Young know ASAP if you're coming along, and if there are any dietary requirements for your team.
