Raffle prizes (part 2).

A huge thanks to Rob Young of Gawith Hoggarth TT Ltd for another very generous raffle prize.
100g tin of Rattray's Bagpiper's Dream and a beautiful B10 silver mounted Peterson's Limerick. He's also included a tin of Peterson's Hyde Park (one of their newest blends) to taste and review so I will be adding it to the "baccy bar".

Polo shirts (part 2).

Here's another sample polo shirt. This one is navy blue with the logo in yellow. Personally I think it looks much smarter than the white one...please let me know if you have any preferences.

Alternative venue(s).

Have had a suggestion for an alternative venue: Henrick's, 3 Barclay Terrace http://www.henricksbar.com/
A couple of us will be having a look on Saturday afternoon. If they have a nice beer garden it could be added as an alternative venue.

Raffle prizes (part 1).

First raffle prizes have arrived.
Many thanks to Marcus of E.A. Carey (Europe) Limited for the £10 gift voucher for their website and a very smart bent billiard "magic inch" pipe.

October meeting (2).

Mixed reactions to The Beehive Inn as a venue: central location is good and the extra overhead cover will be useful if it rains or snows. Heaters aren't as effective as the Cuddie Brae's. Unfortunately, most of the beer garden is going to be closed off for the winter (possibly for health and safety reasons).
Nice selection of beers and malts.

Thanks to Neil, Steve, Marcin and Ricardo for another pleasant afternoon/evening.

Polo shirts.

Here's a photo of the polo shirt, personally I think a dark shirt with light embroidery will look better...I am thinking of navy blue with yellow logo might be good.

Club merchandise.

Just received the first sample of merchandise with the logo on, a mug and a polo shirt.
Very happy with the look and quality of the mug, although the shirts seem a bit expensive for what they are...I will investigate another supplier to see if there is an alternative.

2nd anniversary raffle coming soon.

I was amazed to realise that our second anniversary will be coming round in November. Time flies when you're having fun!

There will be a raffle to raise funds for the club (to cover website fees and to provide more tobacco for the "baccy bar").

I have already received a couple of very generous prizes, will update you as the list grows.

Thanks to everyone for helping the club grow and for keeping it going.

The Beehive Inn.

There's a map for The Beehive Inn's location on the new EPC website.

Hopefully their walled in beer garden should give us a bit more shelter if it gets windy. The trees and generous sized umbrellas should provide cover from any rain and/or snow!

October meeting (1).

Thanks to Steve, Neil, Johnny, Marcin and our newest member Ricardo for another very pleasant meeting at The Cuddie Brae.
Weather stayed dry but it's getting noticeably colder once the sun has gone down. Fortunately, the heaters are still nice and efficient.

Between us, we got through a pretty wide range of tobacco, including; Balkan Supreme (Johnny), St Bruno (Peter [RR] and Steve [Flake]), Peterson's Nutty Cut (Marcin), Century Irish Cream (Neil), Dunhill's London Mixture (Peter) and G.L. Pease's Blackpoint (Ricardo).

October meetings.

Feels like it's been ages since the last meeting. Hopefully having two this month should make up for it.
Saturday 13th at The Cuddie Brae and Sunday 21st at The Beehive Inn, both from 2.30pm.
If The Beehive proves to be popular, I will be happy to make it a regular venue. The central location might be more convenient for some.
