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.
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 30 enthusiastic competitors whittled down to two teams who fought out a grueling final match.
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.
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.
Spring has sprung and the sevens season has begun. That means its almost time for the annual end of year Ball. Although there are still two fixtures to fulfil the votes have been cast and the end of season awards are ready to be distributed.
After the roaring success of last years event, we’re back at the Apex on the 29th April 2017. 7pm, £42.50 pp. It includes a 3 course slap up meal and a band, as well as some questionable banter
It’s a last chance to grab your ticket for this Spring’s biggest event and the end of season blow out, we know you all need!
Rumour is that a young player has pulled out all the stops to get a date, here they can been seen during their “dress rehersal” in the back garden.
So look out those number 1’s and place an order for your tickets with Ken & Lynda McKay. Ken_mckay@btinternet.com or Mags Van der Esch firstname.lastname@example.org
There are limited spaces left and must be confirmed by the 21st April 2017.

All members, players and supporters are welcome to Mayfield to watch Scotland take a tilt at the ‘Triple Crown’, and contest for the coveted Calcutta Cup! Will Scotland adopt the ‘Italian Defence’ to bemuse the auld enemy? Can they win at ‘Twickers’ for the first time in 34 years? These and other questions will be answered during what is sure to be a thrilling encounter. So come along and experience what will be a great atmosphere in the clubhouse.
Please let us know if are thinking of coming along – particularly if with a ‘table’ or group – so that we can arrange catering etc.
Note: The Club operates an Equal Opportunities Policy; England supporters are therefore also welcome!
The event starts at 7.30pm and goes on till Midnight. Tickets are £10 per head (even if you have nothing in your head ,you still have to pay). Your ticket will also entitle you to a braw feed. The event is also BYOB which will suit the fiscal conservatives from both clubs (That’s Henry sorted then).
With various raffle prizes and games throughout the evening it should be an excellent night, and we hope to see as many as you at the event as possible.
Tickets will be available on the night, but it would be great if we can get an idea of numbers before, so that we know how many dancers will need fed. This event is the first to be supported by both clubs so lets make it a cracker. Contact email@example.com or firstname.lastname@example.org to declare your attendance.
