Christmas Lunch

Saturday 3rd December 2011

The River House Restaurant,
The Castle Business Park,

What a change from last year. Remember the Arctic conditions, -22 degrees C temperatures, feet deep snow and impassable roads? The Christmas Lunch unfortunately had to be cancelled at the last minute. This was a great disappointment to everyone and as far as I know this is the first time this has ever happened. Fast forward to this year and driving to Stirling in the sunshine on damp clear roads, this year’s event was most definitely on.

It turned out to be more of a Scottish event with members travelling down from the Highland & Moray and Tayside areas to join in the festivities. It was great to welcome them all. This shows the close ties we enjoy with all the Scottish Areas.

After a few welcoming drinks we were ushered through to our tables. With crackers being pulled, hats put on and jokes being told we all looked forward to the meal. We weren’t disappointed, the food was truly fantastic. After the meal while tea and coffee was being served, Santa’s little helpers went round the tables handing out presents for everyone. We never seem to grow up going by the happy excited look on everyone’s faces as they delved into the sacks searching for gifts and then full of anticipation while ripping the paper of them. Santa hopes you were all happy with your presents.



Thanks to everyone who attended and made the day a great success. We’re so lucky to be able drive such great cars and be members of a fantastic club but it’s the members who put the icing on the cake; your involvement and enthusiasm make the club what it is today.

Our Christmas Lunch marked the end of another wonderful MX-5 Central Scotland Area year of events. With a great venue, a few drinks, scrumptious meal, presents all shared in fantastic company, the day was a great success.

Have a very merry Christmas and a happy New Year.

Great meal, superb venue, great company. Many thanks to Ian & Richard for a really terrific day (weekend). The after lunch meeting at the Pirnythingy was also great, we were the last group to be kicked out. Thanks to Dot & Chas for the 'after kicked out' party in the hotel. See you all again soon.
