Fu­nand game­sat Ter­re­gles

Dumfries & Galloway Standard - - DISTRICT NEWS -

Ter­re­gles SWI held an open evening on Tues­day, Oc­to­ber 23.

Greta Allen prof­fered a warm wel­come to mem­bers and vis­i­tors.

The group was de­lighted by the im­pres­sive turnout of mem­bers from the fol­low­ing in­sti­tutes - Heath­hall, Glen­cairn, Shaw­head, Tin­wald, Kirkma­hoe, Ge­orge­town and Dun­score.

Greta then handed over to Shirley Parker who was to be com­pere for the evening.

Shirley ran through the pro­ce­dure for play­ing ‘Bee­tle’ and ex­plained that mem­bers would play in groups of four and be part­nered by the per­son di­ag­o­nally op­po­site each of them.

This worked well un­til it was time to move on. It would ap­pear that dif­fer­ent in­sti­tutes have dif­fer­ent ways of do­ing this and there was great hi­lar­ity when the process of ‘each to his own’ came into play with mem­bers mov­ing in all direc­tions.

Ev­ery­one very quickly found a new seat and the next game could com­mence but the pat­tern had been set for the night and at the end of each game there was much laugh­ter as the next scram­ble for seats be­gan again.

Shirley made an ex­cel­lent job of keeping her com­po­sure as she guided through the nine games.

At the end of the evening points were to­talled and the three high­est scor­ers re­ceived a prize.

Greta thanked Shirley and the mem­bers for their en­thu­si­as­tic par­tic­i­pa­tion in what was agreed to be a very en­joy­able evening’s fun.

The vis­it­ing in­sti­tutes of­fered a very warm thank you to the Ter­re­gles mem­bers for mak­ing them so wel­come and for pro­vid­ing an ex­cel­lent sup­per.

The raf­fle was drawn and Shirley judged the com­pe­ti­tions as fol­lows: In­sect item - 1 Mar­garet Hee­ley; 2 Blanche McCormick; 3 Pamela Up­hill.

Notelet - 1 Ann Hen­der­son; 2 Greta Allen; 3 Flora Howie.

Vis­i­tors - In­sect Item won by Mar­garet Ste­wart.

The busi­ness meet­ing then fol­lowed which in­cluded re­ports from Cairn Val­ley and Dum­friesshire Fed­er­a­tion.

The next meet­ing will be held on Tues­day, November 27 at 7.30pm when the guest speaker will be Sheala Nixon talk­ing about canapes.
