New Year Sunday Pub Lunch

Woodlands Restaurant,
Dumfries House,

Sunday 11th January 2015


It was a pretty miserable day driving from Dunfermline to Dumfries House - rain, sleet and wind with a number of road accidents passed on the way. Thankfully we arrived unscathed to find quite a few early arrivals. In fact all thirty seven who signed up made it and a great afternoon was had by all.

A warm welcome to new members Karine and Hugh and Kate and Roger. I hope you enjoyed your first event of 2015.

After the usual Happy New Year wishes and drinks in hand, we settled down for a sumptuous feast - some people who shall be nameless even went for the full three courses and coffee.
The quality of the food was great and thanks to Evan and Carol for finding such a good venue.

Following the meal, Chic made a thank you speech on behalf of Maria from "Pants for All" our chosen charity for 2014 (and 2015) with a promise to let her have the cheque for £300 in the very near future.
Jim and I then presented the MX-5 trophy to Marshall in recognition of his contribution to the club in 2014. Who can forget his efforts at the tech day when he spent all afternoon with his head under various bonnets.
It was also good to see him again looking so fit after his illness last year.
The afternoon went by very quickly and everyone started to make their way home shortly after 5pm. Thankfully the weather had improved by then and I hope everyone got home safely.

Hope to see you at the next event at Gateshead in February.

On one of the worst days of the year for weather, it was great to see all 37 who put their names down, turn up. Even members from Fife /Callander etc. Well done Central. It was great to see all our friends and catch up, and meet new members. As usual at the Woodside restaurant the food and the staff were excellent and we'll probally be back!
