This year the player of the year vote is being done on line at present on the London Hibs website. As usual you will need to vote for 1st 2nd and 3rd. Votes will need to be in by the 15th October 2002. We will decide after the votes are in to what is happening after the voting.


The Burns night is to be held on the 18th January 2003  same place as last year. More details on prices etc are to follow Alex is at present organising a good few guests.

For anyone who is interested……..

Comedy night suggestion

The main act is Dougie Dunlop (a very funny guy and a Hibee), he's going to let me know his support act shortly. We'll probably have a few pipers as well for atmosphere.

It'll take place upstairs at the Fountain's Abbey Pub on Friday 25th October, doors opening around 8.30pm. Directions: come out of Paddington Station and turn left down Praed Street, the Fountain's Abbey is on the right.  Tickets are only £5 but we would prefer that they are bought in advance so that we know how many we can sell on the night. I've had a very positive response generally and don't want hundreds of people turning up on the night and being disappointed (numbers are of course limited). The tickets haven't been printed yet but when they are (within the next week or two, I'll let you know), they'll be available from David Munn

If this gig is successful, then I have plans to invite other comics. Hence, I'm keen to broaden the appeal as much as possible and see if a few such gigs can be sustained.

Next meeting will be held at the Willam Wallace on the 12th November 2002.
