Rugby club rounds off sea­son in style

The Oban Times - - Sport -

LOCHABER Rugby Club held its end of sea­son din­ner dance on Satur­day but in­stead of hav­ing the tra­di­tional for­mal cer­e­mony mem­bers de­cided to try some­thing new.

With 2017 mark­ing the 20th an­niver­sary of the club­house they de­cided to hold the event there.

And so the event in the tent was born – a hog roast and ceilidh in a big mar­quee.

With close to 140 tick­ets sold com­pared to around 50 for last year’s din­ner dance, and the weather be­ing fan­tas­tic, it shaped up to be a good night.

Wil­liam Ste­wart of the club, told the Lochaber Times: ‘Brave­heart cater­ing put on a great spread which disappeared in sec­onds. There were six local mu­si­cians from Ceilidh Trail keep­ing peo­ple on the dance floor all evening be­fore ev­ery­one still stand­ing at 10pm moved into the club­house to con­tinue the evening.

‘All in all the club felt the evening was a great suc­cess and would like to thank No Fuss Events for the mar­quee and Dale Monk from the Crofter for ev­ery­thing he pro­vided for the event in the tent.’

Lochaber now has its AGM to pre­pare for on Thurs­day May 25 at 7pm at the club­house where they would like to en­cour­age all their mem­bers to at­tend.

The event in a tent saw a huge in­crease in the num­ber of peo­ple at­tend­ing the end-of­sea­son din­ner, where Ceilidh Trail en­ter­tained.
