The annual supper was held on Saturday 27th Jan 2007 in the Dundonald Institute. As always tickets were in very high demand and 108 gents turned out for another great evening of Burns and companionship. The evening, as ever was packed full of Burns, starting promptly at 5:30 and ending at midnight.
The Toasts this year were performed by:
|Alistair Deas||Immortal Memory|
|Stewart Abercrombie||To The Lasses|
|Capt Steven Garmory||Peace and the People|
|Wilf Allsop||Address to A Haggis|

Over the course of the evening 46 items were heard by a very enthusiastic company. The club excels in having not just the well known works of the Bard but lesser known gems too. This time the progamme contained the usual masterpieces such as:
Tam O Shanter,
The Twa Dugs
Holy Willie's Prayer
Death and Doctor Hornbook,
Epistle to Major Logan,
Reply To A Trimming Epistle Received From A Tailor
There was also, as ever, a big range of songs from the usual opening number...
"There was a lad was born in Kyle"
Rantin Rovin Robin
...and even a guitarist
Kev Thompson: club member & Webmaster
"When First I Saw Fair Jeanie's Face"
...along with a big selection of others such as:
Ae Fond Kiss
Ye Jacobites By Name
A Man's a Man
For the second year Michael and Paul provided a superb musical accompaniment and the traditional fare was well served by staff from the 'Tipsy Nipper'.
The evening was expertly presided over by club President Bob Garmory in his usual inimitable style and ended at midnight with the entire company singing Auld Lang Syne.
