The Club’s Junior Squad, along with Tom Flannigan, Peter MacMillan and Gordon Law (aka the 3 Amigos apparently) flew out from Edinburgh earlier, at the start of what will undoubtedly be a memorable week.

A 7a.m. start from the Club got things rolling, courtesy of Steve Dand of Secure Air Parks (thanks to Past Captain, Jack Reid for organising) who kindly provided a minibus to take the guys to the Airport, which not only saved a convoy of cars heading into Edinburgh, but also these really annoying £1 drop-off charges.

So thanks to Steve for his support with this (and in advance for picking the guys up on their return next Friday). It’s a great help.

There’s a busy week ahead and we’ll do our best to keep you advised of results and any other interesting snippets via the website. We’ll also update via the Club’s Twitter feed which is:

The Tournament Organisers will also be updating via their Twitter feed which is:
