We must be getting something right with our GROGS lunches. In spite of the fact that the February lunch was nearly called off at the last minute, because of the lack of running water in the clubhouse, a spirit of adventure prevailed and a three figure number of attendees enjoyed the meal and another excellent speaker in Hugh Dan MacLennan, the Gaelic speaking Alba TV rugby commentator.
The penultimate meeting of the season takes place at Braidholm at 12 noon for a 12-30pm start. The speaker is Allan Mackintosh, a man with almost a lifetime of involvement with the game of Rugby. Unlike Hugh Dan, Allan doesn't speak Gaelic but he does speak English - plain English as you might expect from a past Chairman of Glasgow Hawks and a past President of Marr RFC. He was greatly involved in bringing Marr from the lower reaches of Club Rugby to the top level of the domestic game in Scotland. He has an intimate knowledge of the sport that we are all interested in.
Please respond early as this helps us with the arrangements and ensures everyone gets a seat.
Finally GROGS will be on sale for the incredibly low price of £10.
I look forward to meeting you again on the 14th.
