2018 SPORTSMANS DINNER

As we shiver our way through winter, and for some the thought of golf is a distant hope, the folks down at King James VI Golf Club have many reasons to be cheerful.  

Over seven and a half thousand reasons as it happens! The club's social curtain raiser for the year, the annual Sportsman's Dinner at Perth's Salutation Hotel last Saturday, saw 200 members and guests have a great night whilst the same time pouring £7875 into the King James coffers. The club would like to thank Andy Mackie of our main sponsor JACS Joinery & Construction Supplies Ltd for their continued support and also all the golf clubs and people that donated items towards the raffle and auction all helping give the fantastic fund raising result.

After enjoying an excellent meal all the guests sat back to enjoy the entertainment for the evening, aptly billed "A Night of Mayhem" which was provided by crack Fife duo Jim Leishman and Dick Campbell.  There were anecdotes aplenty from the Provost of Fife and the manager of Arbroath FC, Jim also included some of his poems and would like to thank Sam McLaren's table for their participation. Dick did not let being sent to the stand whilst his team was losing heavily in the Cup at Ayr earlier that day, stop him from entertaining the guests with his many funny stories. The evening ran well thanks to our MC for the night Ray Smethurst, Ian McPhee for his organisation and the tasks undertaken by the members of T & H Promotions. Club Captain Dennis Brown would like to thank the Salutation Hotel, JACS and all the sponsors, Jim Leishman and Dick Campbell, the T & H team and all the guests for making it a great night. 

 

 Thank you
