2016 ASSOCIATION DINNER AND PRIZE GIVING

On Friday 11th November we held our Annual Dinner & Presentation evening in the Kingsknowes Hotel, Galashiels. 

This year saw another increase in the numbers attending and we had a mixture of 21 Life Members, Members & guests around the table for what proved a very relaxed and enjoyable evening. 

After the Chairman’s welcome, introduction & toast to “absent friends”, Life Member & Entertainments convenor – Mr Tom Dalgleish said Grace and a minutes silence was observed in remembrance of the fallen. 

Following Dinner the presentation evening commenced, the Trophies were presented by Life Member Mr Les Thin to our 2016 Competition winners and the 2016 Champion Angler.

The evening continued with a Quiz from Quizmaster DAZ which included rounds about celebrity photos, one hit wonders & County Towns in the UK. Winners of the quiz were “The Brains Trust” from the Top Table.  

The evening was rounded off with a vote of thanks to Des Fox & Frank Daly for organising & running the Competitions and Trophies for the Presentation evening, Daz for arranging the quiz & a special thanks to the Owners & staff at the Kingsknowes Hotel for looking after us so well us for our Annual Dinner. 

We hope to see everyone (and more faces) back around the table for next year’s Dinner.
