In conjunction with the FCYC, we are very pleased to announce that the 2016 Burns’ Night is almost here! We still have a couple of spots left for speeches so if anyone has something they would like to say on the subject of Robert Burns, please get in touch with Ian Lindsay, through the club office.

This year it’s not simply a traditional sit-down ‘Supper’ because the emphasis will be more on dancing, music and entertainment: the dance floor will be laid beforehand and once the meal is finished, we will be dancing the night away with live music. And all for a tiny price!

We love to see a kilt of course, and this is The Other Night to wear it, but don’t feel it’s obligatory. And don’t feel you have to know all the parts to an eight-some reel; there will be ample opportunity to practice on the night! And if you don’t want to dance, then just enjoy the show and a few drinks – our dedicated taxi hotline should get you home nice and swiftly.

Above all, this is an opportunity for you to show your support for your club by coming along with your partner and friends and having some fun! We are especially pleased about this tie-up with the FCYC – apart from the benefits of sharing resources, we are neighbours and we have the premises so it’s an ideal way of helping each other. Let’s be under no illusion: a well-attended event such as this is precisely how we will ensure a future for both our clubs!

We look forward to seeing you at the RFYC clubhouse and hope you have a wonderful time!

Best wishes,
