7th March 2019

Dear <<First Name>>,

Apologies for the re-issues this morning, I shouldn't do these things at 6.30 in the morning! Please ignore and delete my last two missives and read on for the correct information .....

We begin this week with a couple of reminders. Firstly, our AGM will be held on Monday 25th March at the Club Centre starting at around 8.30pm. This immediately follows the FP Club AGM which starts at 7pm. Secondly, our Membership Secretary has been busily combing the records and sending out reminders to anyone who has yet to pay their 2019 membership fees. If you are contacted by Ben please try and pay your fees as soon as possible.

Six Nations rugby returns this weekend for the penultimate round of matches. Scotland v Wales should be a tasty encounter when they meet at 2.15pm on Saturday. There will also be some tasty pasta for everyone in the bar at around 4pm. 4 pint pitchers of Fosters will be on special offer at only £10 so what more reason do you need to get along to the Club Centre for some of the action.

Grammar Rugby are back at Rubislaw next Saturday, 16th March, taking on Hamilton in the league. It's a 3pm kick-off which means you can take in the game before returning to the club to watch the Calcutta Cup match which kicks off at 5pm. It's also Sponsors Day so we're looking forward to a busy day at the bar - hopefully you can make it along as well.

As you will know we are most definitely still open and taking bookings for events in any of our rooms or the outside BBQ area for the rest of the year. If you, someone you know, or your work are looking for a venue for a fundraising evening, Quiz Night or summer BBQ then please do get in touch. These outside events bring in vital revenue and allow us to keep the doors open. Please do everything you can to support your Club Centre by encouraging others to use our facilities.

Alastair Ritchie

It is with great sadness that the Club Centre advises of the passing of Alastair Ritchie.

Ally or Big Al, as he was best known, died at Roxburgh House on Friday 1st March aged 68 years, after a short illness bourne with great dignity and good humour.

Al joined the Club Centre almost on the day that it opened in 1969 and served on the Club Centre committee and was one of the founding and most enthusiastic members of the Petanque Section.

Al was a person who always exuded good humour and showed genuine interest in the activities of his friends and the club in general. As thoroughly decent and amenable person as anyone could ever hope to know and meet and it was the privilege of many to have been his friend.

He will be sadly missed.

"A pint of McEwans Export please, plus one in the tap, it's been a bad shift"

Al's funeral will be held at Baldarroch Crematorium, Crathes on Friday 22nd March at 1pm and thereafter at the Club Centre at approx 2.15pm.
