AGSFP Club Centre Newsletter

15th October 2018

Dear <<First Name>>,

It's been a while since our last newsletter so lots to catch up on in and around the Club. Let's kick things off with news that tickets are now on sale for our always popular annual Family Bonfire and Fireworks Night. Full details below but please do pop into the bar to pick up your tickets as soon as possible as tickets must be collected and paid for in advance.

The next rugby home game is this Saturday when we welcome Gala to Rubislaw. The team will be looking for a return to winning ways after a tough run of fixtures. Your support will be most welcome at the game and back in the bar afterwards. Pies will be available before and after the game for those in need of some sustenance.

This Friday we will be hosting Aberdeen Deeside Rotary who have organised a fundraising Tabletop Whisky Trail and Whisky Tasting Evening. Tickets should still be available if you are interested in supporting them and enjoying some tipples this Friday. Find out more on the Rotary website.

The next Club Quiz Night isn't too far away either. Regulars will know the drill but newcomers are always most welcome. Friday 26th October is the date for your calendar if it's not marked off already.

Finally this week news that FP Malcolm Rennie will be appearing in "Shackleton's Carpenter", a one-man play by Gail Louw, at The Barn, Banchory, this Thursday evening. I've included more details and links below so read on if Antarctic exploratiopn and/or the theatre float your boat.

Please note that tickets MUST be paid for on collection - no money, no tickets!
Shackleton's Endurance sank in Antarctica leaving 28 men stranded. The carpenter, Clydesider Harry McNish played a vital role in saving them. He also defied Shackleton, so was never awarded the Polar Medal. Now, ill and destitute, he challenges the Boss on the dockside. Can he lay his ghosts to rest?

FP Malcolm Rennie, known for his work in “Mr Selfridge”, “Pride and Prejudice” and lots of other shows, will be appearing in “Shackleton’s Carpenter” at The Barn in Banchory on Thursday 18th October.
