Halloween parties were part of the club's social calendar for many years, held at the club hut, Whitehaugh. The club gave up Whitehaugh in 2002 so Halloween parties couldn't continue. However in September 2010, a social "banquet" was held at the Carn Dearg hut and the first boules tournament took place. Only 9 members attended. In 2011, it was moved to the end of October and became a boules/banquet/Halloween event and 18 attended. It was held again in 2012 with 18 attending. It was removed from the calendar in 2013 due to the 50th anniversary celebrations, but came back in 2014 and 2015 with 19 attending each. This year, there was a record number of attendees for the modern era - 42 members, ex-members and guests. The reason was the 50th celebrations for John and Rita.
Congratulations to Rita and John Norrie, who have been club members for 50 years (1966-2016). They joined only 3 years after the club's formation. At the recent social gathering, Rita and John were honoured by the president and presented with a book of memories, consisting of photos and anecdotes supplied and written by club members.

The annual boules tournament was held on Saturday 29th October at the social gathering at the new Carn Dearg Hut in Glen Clova. As usual, it was keenly contested. The winners were Janet Coull and Nicola Hay and they were presented with the new trophy. Photo to follow.
