March Newsletter

Mar 25, 2013

All,

Please receive the March edition of the Fireaway Club Newsletter.

Social Meeting:
The next meeting takes place next Thursday, 30th May, Guildford bar, West Register Street, at 7:30pm. Socials are very relaxed, informal and held in the open bar area of the pub. Please note: The social scheduled for 28th March has been cancelled due to the 'Farewell to LBFRS' function taking place on the same night.

Farewell to LBFRS - Thursday 28th March 2013:
For those attending the function a reminder that the plan is for retired personnel to meet-up prior to the event as follows:-

Cloisters pub,
26 Brougham Place, Edinburgh,
6:30pm

Tickets, for those who opted to collect on the night, will be handed out in the pub. For info, over 40 retired personnel bought tickets - including a lot of 'well kent faces'!.. Should be a good night.

Events Update:

1) Hillwalking:
The March walk has been cancelled due to the ongoing poor weather conditions. We'll now look to arrange a walk in April. A thread has been started on the messageboard for walk/date suggestions. Full details of the walk will be available via the Latest News page on the website once confirmed. Everyone welcome.

2) Football - English Premier League:
As there are only a few fixtures remaining of this campaign it will be next season (2013-14) before we arrange another trip.

3) Retirements:
Gordon Fisher would like to invite all colleagues past and present to join him for a farewell drink on Friday 12th April, 1930hrs at Forrester Rugby Club, South Gyle Access, Edinburgh EH12 9FR. Full details on the Latest News page.
