12th February 2002
It was the smallest turnout for a long while. We had the famous five of
Connor, Donald, Lindsay, Ramsey and McEwan. I am sure if the
result had gone the other way last Wednesday
the attendance would much larger. Apologies
from Andrew Murray and Brian Rogan (and I was in
Tenerife thinking of you all - Web Ed!)
Following on from that we have decided to have our own cup final
(Edinburgh Cup) on the weekend of the 16th
March. Meeting in the Four in Hand pub prior
to game to party etc. If anyone wants a ticket for the game on the 16th
March please contact Tony Connor by the 6th March and see you
there. For information on travel as usual
contact Alex Lindsay.
Burns Night was a great success and was enjoyed by everyone. There is a
big thank you to Mike Prior for all the merchandise donated for
the raffle and Mike Inglis for the photo’s and
reports of the night.
FROM BRIAN ROGAN
to all the Committee for making such a success of the Burns Night. I
thought we had an excellent venue, super band - as always, great
guests, certainly the best dressed we've ever
had & an unbelievable raffle. Possibly one of
the best ever nights.
I have one small disappointment, the committee responded
positively to every suggestion made in the
survey following last year's function & addressed
every reason why some people did not attend. Despite this we
missed the presence of several notable
members, why???? now is the time for all of us
to pull behind our team & London Hibs as well, let's have some support!!
FROM ANDREW MURRAY
nearly 100 members/guests and with the help of the raffle we managed
to produce £200 profit on the night.
Drysdale was not present we have no news on the football team.
annual Golf day will be held late June early July which will avoid most
peoples holidays and the England games. We will have further
details at the next meeting.
question where is Jimmy Wallace last seen way before the year end??
know then see below………………….?????????
The following is an extract
from a letter from Jimmy Wallace to Andrew Murray.
"Pardon me for doing a Lord
Lucan of late, but I have moved back to Edinburgh. I left the Thistle
Bloomsbury Hotel in November to take up a cellermans post at the Eros
Nightclub in Fountainbridge but after a week I knackered my back and had
Give my best to the gang and
hopefully I may make it down to the AGM. I do miss the meetings as I've
always looked forward to them each month."
"I'll either merit another
Jimmy Boco Award or I 'll be shot at dawn as a traitor.
Do you know where I was the
day Hibs drew at Tynecastle at Christmas.???
I have been doing a few
agency shifts around that time and on that occasion I was at Tynecastle.
I didn't see any of the game as I was busy underneath the stand in the
executive lounge - WORKING FOR THE JAMBOS…..the lure of filthy lucre
will be Tuesday 12th March.
