Every year our social convenor Past President John McKillop brings this supper all together and he does a wonderful job which we are all appreciative of. Introductions by President James McGall then  club member Malcolm Macaskill got our evening off to a great start with his 'Toast tae the Haggis' ably assisted by 'Will the fluter' and haggis bearer Alex Latimer.
Our main speaker of the evening, the Immortal memory, was delivered to us in rhyme by Bobby Jess, truly wonderful and he also performed a spoof of 'Tam O Shanter' called 'Tam the bike" which was very funny.
Jim Torrancea Past President of Halfway & District BC had the company in stitches with his hilarious Toast tae the Lassies, Oor Torry never fails to deliver and matures wi' age.  Our other invited guest,
Neil McGilvary gave a magnificent rendition of Tam O Shanter and later in the evening followed that with Red red rose.
The whole evening was interspiced with excellent music from Robbie Robertson who thoroughly entertained the audience with his lovely singing.  A guest artist for the evening was also Rev.Neil Glover who sang two songs accompanied by Robbie on guitar.
Rev.Neil is parish minister at nearby Flemington-Hallside Church and as he was 'working' in the morning he left at 10pm... to a standing ovation.
A great deal of work went on behind the scenes and sincere thanks goto Social convenor Johnny McKillop, club secretary Ann Phillips, treasurer Peter Phillips and President James for setting up the hall, which looked superb.  Thanks also to Ann Phillips, Eileen McArthur, Senga Robinson, Liz Chambers, May McKillop, Rena Hoggan, Ann Dunsmore, Margaret Mitchell who all helped serve the fare prepared by our caterers.  Thanks also to everyone who donated a raffle prize.
The vote of thanks was delivered by Secretary Ann Phillips an relatively easy job, such was the standard set by everyone at the top table. Nonetheless the vote of thanks gave Ann the opportunity on behalf of all the guests to show their appreciation to all of the artists, and this she did with aplomb!
