The West of Scotland branch held their annual BBQ on Sat 8th June, around 40 members along with families and friends attended. The duty clacker basher was Stewart Fraser. The event was organised by Nicko Roberts and Mac ‘garbo boy’ Macdonald.

Albeit the weather was hit and miss, the newly purchased SA gazebo (BZs Graeme McCabe for organising) proved a huge hit and as well as looking fantastic kept us sheltered from the occasional rain shower.

The BBQ was hosted by Buster and Anne Bown, who were presented with flowers and a bottle of whisky as a thankyou from the branch.

The branch held a free raffle and party games were enjoyed by all (well done Nicko). As the drink flowed, so did the dits. 

Overall the BBQ was a huge success and as the Chairman of the branch I would like to thank everyone for both organising and attending. A special thanks goes to Clive Lee our official photographer.
