Dalhousie Race Night

The Dalhousie Golf Club Race Night, held at the Carnoustie Golf Hotel on Friday, May 12th, was an outstanding success. It was, once again, Gair Forbes who organised the entire event and, building on the success of the inaugural one in 2016, around one hundred and twenty participants went home in high spirits after a fun-packed evening.    

Gair’s energy and persuasion in the preparations for the event produced a tremendous array of prizes for the raffle, tickets for which were enthusiastically sold during the evening by Carol Ford, Liz Wilson and Linda Cargill. Alan Irvine (AJI Entertainment) was the technological wizard who pulled the videos and excitement of the eight races together for a hugely responsive and appreciative audience, while his musical selections to fill in the gaps between races were outstanding. A finger buffet and splendid bar service from hotel staff (allied to some first class financial returns for more than a few guests!) ensured that a memorable night simply flew past and was thoroughly enjoyed by all.  

Talking of financial returns, Gair’s terrific work produced a donation of £1000 for the Scottish Charity Air Ambulance, while Dalhousie funds also benefited, with a profit of £725 earned on the night. Gair already has plans on the drawing board for a 2018 Dalhousie 150th celebratory Race Night. A disappointing turn-out of members was the only negative aspect of an action-packed evening; those who didn’t come missed a quite superb night of fun, socialising and entertainment. It is to be hoped that the prospect of a ‘repeat performance’ in a VERY special year for Dalhousie will encourage them NOT to miss it, next time around.
