THE T.A.R.T.S. NIGHT OUT
On Wednesday the 12th December the T.A.R.T.S. had their Christmas dinner. This is the second year we have met together to celebrate Christmas. Last year we went to the Birkie Inn but this year we decided to support the Pear Tree and I am sorry to say, what a disappointment, the quality of the food was not what I have come to expect from the Pear Tree, let us hope that this is only a glitch on their behalf and that they will get back to the high standard I know they are capable of.
But that is enough about the meal, after all that is not what the night was all about, rather it is a chance for us who enjoy each other company on a Sunday to share that enjoyment with our better halves, so in the party there was, Dave and his wife Liz, Len and his wife Fiona, Ally and his wife Jane, Ian and his mother Bunty myself and my wife Sheila, there were also two unattached males Bob and Duncan making a total of twelve. We started off with the parties mixed up, but the ladies decided that they would rather be together so Ian and Len were decanted so that all of them could huddle up. I suppose they, the ladies were able to discuss girlie things, while we men talked about serious things, like air guns and shooting, recalling humorous things that happen when out in the field.
A good night was had by all and to quote from a text sent, a great night, great company, pity about the food, I think says it all.
This type of night out I have tried to drum up support for ever since I have been in the club but up till now it has always fallen on deaf ears. I am quite sure that if a larger evening was organised it would be very successful socially.
To all those members we may not see on behalf of the T.A.R.T.S. may I wish you all a VERY MERRY CHRISTMAS AND A HAPPY AND SAFE NEW YEAR.
