Easterly Pub Meet

Thursday 1st July 2010

Craigmillar Park Golf Club
1 Observatory Road

For our bi-monthly easterly pub meet we returned to the Craigmillar Golf Club in Edinburgh, and another themed evening. But what would it be this time?

Starting way back in January, the chef and Gordon delighted us all with the first Italian theme night. In March it was an exotic Indian night and in May we sampled the delights of Spain. Having really enjoyed the excellent food on all three of these evenings our expectations were high for yet another culinary delight when the Moroccan theme was announced.

Gosh isnít time flying past, July already and our fourth and I think best evening held at Craigmillar Golf Club this year. Sixteen hungry souls gathered in eager anticipation of the culinary delights advertised on the website. Also great to meet a few new faces attending an event for the first time, Elaine and John, all the way from Largs in their silver Mk3 and also David, a little closer from Penicuik.

Following the usual introductions and general MX-5 related chatter we were all ushered into our own candle lit private dining area to be seated around the large dining table. Now weíre normally a very noisy bunch when we all get together, but this time it was uncannily quiet apart from the chomp chomp yum yum noises as we all tucked into the succulent, tender and delicious meal.

Following dinner the chat was mainly centred round the upcoming Lindisfarne Weekend and team tactics on how we could gain the title of the 2010 rounders champions. Not sure the idea of flying German flags on our cars would help cross border relations with our friends in the south though.

To Elaine & John and David, it was great having you there. We hope you all enjoyed the evening.

To Gordon and all the Staff at the golf club, once again we canít thank you enough for all the hard work and thought that you put into these evenings. It is very much appreciated.

Great night folks - thanks for the hospitality! Makes a change where a "car club" is not populated by Max Power subscribers or traveling rugs.
