What a great weekend.
We were very lucky with the weather on Saturday for the Jimmy Goodfellow Quaich competition. It was wonderful to see a full house plus, meaning that a partial shotgun start was needed. This obviously demonstrated the respect for the man. The following day, 84 members including their guests turned up to celebrate Jimmy’s life and of course Saint Andrew’s Day by meeting for a buffet lunch at Pinta Golf Club. it was a great way to complete a fantastic weekend. We were very honored that Dawn Goodfellow, accompanied by her Grandson in Law, Kevin, agreed to present the prizes and it was lovely to see many of her family joining us to celebrate the occasion. We were entertained by The Poor Man’s Band with a set of traditional Scottish songs followed by a set of up beat songs, written by Scottish artists. It was quite gratifying that €230 was raised for the Captain!s Charity, Portuguese Families in Need. Well done SdM and the all the prize winners.
Well done to all the competitors, some fabulous scores. It seems appropriate the winners on this Scottish occasion were "The Scotts"!
