What you didn’t know about Robert (Rabbie) Burns and the Global Challenge This handsome chap is celebrated all over the world on January 25th, the life and works of Scotland’s most famous poet is bought to life on this day with traditions dating back to his death in 1796. The earliest mention of the Haggis, (which for those who don’t know is commonly known as a small furry mountain dwelling creature who’s frequents the Scottish Highlands) was back as far as 1520 in the works of Scottish poet Dunbar and Kennedy, some 240 years before our much loved Mr Burns. However it wasn’t until Robert’s poem “Address to the Haggis” that the dish really took off in popularity, and is now considered Scotland’s National dish. Robert Burns wrote over 550 poems in his lifetime, including the world famous “Auld Lang Syne”, which is now traditionally sung on the turn of the new year all around the world. Burns Night came about when a group of merchants from Ayreshire, (some friends of Burns) got together and started “The Burns Club”, they held the first Burns Supper on what they thought was his birthday, January 29th in 1802. However on closer inspection of the Ayr Parish records, they discovered in fact that Burns was born on the 25th of January, which is why we all now haul out the Haggis every year on this very date. Now staying with the tradition dating back to the 18th

First hole in 1 for 2013! Congratulations Marc Laney on his fabulous hole-in-one on the 13th this Saturday 5th January !! He wasn’t in the winter league so his score of 40 stableford points didn’t count towards anything but winning a pound from his playing partner Ian Montague, and the right to break an alcohol fast five days after the new year….oh well. Thanks to Marc for ringing the hole-in-one bell and buying a round of drinks for everyone in the bar. The story is now etched in the minds of those present after he went on and on about it for the afternoon. Well done Marc……
