Annual Awards Dinner

The Annual Ball took place last Saturday 21st April at the Apex Hotel and we had food and drink and a great band.
As usual the McKay’s worked tirelessly to ensure this year’s event was another success. Well done to them and all the numerous other volunteers who help make it a wonderful evening.
One of the main reasons for the ball is that it is an opportunity to honour everyone involved throughout the season who has contributed to the clubs’ continuing success.
Here are a list of the annual award winners.
Player of the Year – Ali Mackie
Players Player – Angus Farquhar
Most Improved – Angus Farquhar
Best Newcomer – James Forrester
Titans – Struan Gartley
Kicking cup – Josh Rutnagur
Clubman – David Rankine
Supporters – Mike and Campbell Cunningham
Well done to those award winners.

Ballers!

Everyone wants to be a cash money baller, do you have the swag?

Oh S**t, Gerry did mean that kind of ball, my bad…..

Actually your all invited to our really really good event at the Apex. It’s our end of season ball and playing awards for the club and junior sections. Highlights in previous years have involved a plant pot and a salt ring, as well as an ABBA tribute band.

I was sold at ABBA, Mama Mia is a great flick.

There are spaces still available, and if you have nine friends why not book a table, if you don’t have 9 mates we’ll find them for you.

The price is£42.50 pp (Students £37.50) and that includes a three course meal and live music. That’s a bargain, you cannae get anything else decent for £40 can you, except this chocolate fountain I’ve just seen it online and it’s a cracker. Imagine having a chocolate fountain in your house, that’s what dreams are made of… Hugh Heffner didn’t even have it that good.

 

If you want to book, go on you know you want to, contact a senior club official or preferably Ken McKay  ken_mckay@btinternet.com

I’ve also heard that some of the players have dates, to avoid disappointment on seeing who actually managed to get a date, get your bookings in as soon as possible.

In the immortal words of Val Venus…. “Hello Ladies”

2.30pm – 12am Saturday 31st March 2018 will be a barn burner @ Mayfield.

Tickets will be on sale from Alan Brown or just ask your favourite player,  for £25 new improved food from an outside caterer, a bottle of wine of your choice (stocks of Mumm are limited…) and Dj/Karaoke at night starting at 6:30 and for the day time event a few games are organised along with at least 4 topless waiters! Rumour has it they might even have thongs on this year 🙏🏼

 

Watch Ireland v Scotland @ Mayfield

        

In response to quite a few queries, we can confirm that the clubhouse will be open on Saturday for the those who wish to watch Scotland continue on their unstoppable march to the 6 Nations championship!

Where else would you possibly want to watch this?!  (Ok, in Dublin maybe but apart  from there….)

Kick off is at 2.15  but the club will be open from 1 pm to give everyone a chance of that important pre-match warm-up.

Catering: there will be food available for those who wish – and at a very reasonable cost! There will be a pot or two of Irish Stew on the go, followed by a Scottish cheeseboard + oatcakes etc. Unfortunately the wine will also be either Irish or Scottish.*

There might even be a Baileys Irish Cream Cheesecake!

All are welcome to come along – but we would like a bit of heads up, particularly as regards the catering, so please let Gerry or Derek know if you are thinking of coming:

gerry@ppinvest.co.uk or dlawson@thorntons-law.co.uk

We hope to see you there on Saturday.  Keep the faith!

Herr Rojo’s Halloween Party

Halloween at Dundee High Rugby means the annual Halloween party.

 

Halloween, as we are all aware is an opportunity for younger aspiring sportsmen and woman to dress up and hunt for sweeties. Unfortunately, none of us are of such an age anymore. So, what better alternative to come to Mayfield Clubhouse and enjoy a few cold ones with your rugby family.

The party is due to kick off at 7.30 where you will be greeted with a smile and a cocktail at the door.

We have a few games lined up and a few costume based prizes (individual and group).

There are some drink deals sorted and the plan is to take full advantage of these and party well into the night (circa 11.30pm, Angus’ bedtime).

Of course, we are an open clubby, so tickets are open to friends, family and female friends who you may or may not be dating (just to clear that up for you George).

This is a tradition at this club and not a party to be missed.

Tickets cost £7. Tickets will also be sold at the door, however, they will be limited so to avoid missing out find me on Thursday and get them early.

Here are a few pictures from the last party.

HAPPY HALLOWEEN 🎃👽👹

Halloween P-A-R-T-Y, because I gotta!

Get it in the Diary, Social Sec Ronan Joy proudly presents the annual Mayfield Fright Night and Halloween Party.

Taking place at the Mayfield Clubhouse on 28th Oct 2017, after both 1st XV and Titans play Musselburgh, get it in the Diary!

The Host Ronan will have more details on the format of the night (including some really fun games), but rumours are the team with the worst outfits (1st XV or Titans) overall will have a forfeit.

Hopefully Broonie won’t wear that old Batman costume again…….

 

 

Beer Pong Round Up

New Season and New Social Calendar!

Ronan at last night’s event

This year we have a new social sec, the sultan of skite, the master of disaster and the sergeant of sesh, our own little Marcus Rojo.

The festivities started with the age old tradition of debutants lungs, for Hammy and the Fairweather twins (now old enough to have a drink). This was to have a profound effect on young Ryan later on in the evening.

Hard to explain

Then onto our beach themed beer pong championship. It’s fair to say that this was a bit more like Arbroath Beach than Miami, but hey you can’t have it all.

An array of hopeful challengers stepped up to the ochey, in teams of two, facing off for the right to compete in the final, for the coveted inaugural beer pong trophy.

The Championship table, no health and safety concerns here………

The 30 enthusiastic competitors whittled down to two teams who fought out a grueling final match.

Redmayne unable to participate in the afternoon, but full of vigor in the evening.

Christy & Shaun, (Team Snape &  Weasley), faced

Geo & Tony (The Brains Trust) in a full cup final. This went down to the final cup each with Snape & Weasley emerging victorious.

 

Remember Tony & Geo, L is for Love

The winners with their trophy

Here’s more snaps from the championship.

 

 

Van Wilder Party Liason, DHSFP

The social secretary is a position coveted by many, and performed well by few.

He who controls the social side, controls the mood of the club.

Last year Owen Dyer was about as much use as his adored Arsene Wenger and apparently a plane has been chartered displaying a “crog out” banner to fly over Mayfield during the AGM.

Who will rise from the ashes like a Van Wilder Pheonix from the flames and lead the social calendar back to glory!?

Look no further for a new appointment is on the horizon, working tirelessly in the background (apparently with a great sand guy for a beach party). This club member is hungry for recognition and keen to take on a bigger role at the club and is really looking forward to working in close proximity to Homer.

We should salute this brave young buck. Let’s see who it is at the AGM.
