Welcome to our Annual Christmas Lunch.

For our 2011 Christmas Lunch we'll be returning to our one of our favourite restaurants, The Riverhouse in Stirling. With fine company, food, wine and MX-5 banter in abundance this should make a fine start to the festive period.

As usual we'll have a secret Santa. If you wish to participate simply bring along a ladies present if you're a lady or a Gents present if you're a gent. We normally look upon a value of around £5 - £7.50 as a guide.

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.
