SCOTS NIGHT SUCCESS.
The Club held its Bi annual Scots evening on Sat 18th January.
67 members and friends squeezed into the clubrooms to enjoy an evening celebrating all things Scottish.
President Nagle opened the evening with the Selkirk Grace and Compere for the evening, Ivor Hughes invited piper Graham Michie to lead the Haggis on a tour round the hall.
Main Club Sponsor, Alan Learmonth (Butchers) gave a stirring rendition of Burns's Address to the haggis as the company tucked into a meal of haggis, tatties, neeps and roast beef. Pudding followed.
A fine immortal memory was delivered by ex Melrosian Roy Mack and the hall was also entertained by the fine voice of Langholm stalwart Eric Laidlaw accompanied by John Mabon on Piano.
The toast to the lasses was delivered by ex Kelso Bowling Club president Ronny Fleming with the reply coming from Jed BCs Ann Gilfillan. In between the toasts Jedburghs Roy Ferguson, making his debut on the afterdinner speaking circuit, gave a fabulous rendition of 'Cotters Saturday Night' by Rabbie Burns
The ladies of Gwen Mabon and Florence Mack then closed the evening with emotional renditions of some great Scots songs.
Another great night. Thanks to all who made it happen.
Happy New year from all at Jedburgh Bowling Club.
