The price for this year’s gathering, as always, includes the full MacSween's Haggis dinner (two servings), one beer and four fills of whisky, as well as the usually good company of your fellow Caledonians. There will be a free raffle for all diners with the option to buy further tickets for those feeling especially lucky. Jokes, relevant stories, and good humour can be donated at any time.

We have many special prizes this year but, as always, gifts for the raffle will be most gratefully received at the venue on the day (or contact house@cally.org in advance)

As we expect to see a large turnout of Members, Guests will be registered in chronological order and places will be allocated in good time prior to the event.  Please R.S.V.P. as soon as possible, and not later than Sunday 13th January, to Mr. Michael Kilic at house@cally.org to secure your place(s).

Your Committee looks forward to the pleasure of your company and to another most enjoyable gathering.
 


Yours Aye,
