   What an evening, it must go down as one the best Burns nights we have had in the club in recent years.

President Peter Phillips welcomed everyone to the clubhouse and introduced his top table.

Past President Alex Latimer brought in the beastie to the strains of PiggeryBrae fiddler Ian Robb.

Angus Ross delivered a superb rendering of the toast tae the haggis and managed to inject some humour into the prose highlighting the fact it was one the smallest haggis he had the pleasure to toast!

PiggeryBrae kicked off the music with a Burns set of Johnnie Cope, Leezie Lindsay and A mans a man which had the audience singing along.


Kenny Wilson a great friend of Cambuslang BC and Past President of Kirkhill BC delivered an outstanding Immortal Memory.
Dressed as a judge he called upon the members of CBC to remember the works of the Bard, the greatest Scot, and accused some of failing and meted out suitable 'punishment'!  He received a standing ovation after delivering an Immortal Memory which will be talked about for years to come.

Kenny also performed, as only he can, a wonderful and moving rendition of that wonderful poem ' Holy Willie's Prayer'

 Robbie superbly sang two of Burns love songs
 which set the scene for the toast tae the lassies which  
 was delivered by local business man Gus Ross.
 He had the members 'in stitches' with his take on the
 lassies and all the good and bad things which life 
 throws at us through them.
 Janis Hughes
of course had plenty to say in reply
 and the men got a 'doing' with a very clever, funny
 and witty speech which was very well received by
 the audience.
 PiggeryBrae suitably finished off the evening with a 
 superb selection of songs for the members and friends
 to sing-a-long and enjoy.

Social Convenor John McKillop gave the vote of thanks to all the artists and its worth noting that the music and toasts which were of a very high standard came from members and friends who all live within a few miles of Cambuslang...... very much a case of talent within our community.  Traditionally the evenings proceedings ended with the bards 'Auld Lang Syne'
