DINNER DANCE - Aberfoyle
|The dinner dance, held at the Rob Roy Hotel in Aberfoyle began in the usual club meeting style of dignity and respect, and lets face it, you've got to have respect for someone who wears a bra on his head. Having arrived in the afternoon after the earlier drinking session, sorry Hill walk, it was surprising to find that the club hadn't been barred from the hotel yet, but the night hadn't started yet so I figured we'll just give it time.
|As everyone began gathering in their finery, especially Jackie in her little shorts and T-shirt number, we all began looking forward to the evening. After a few drinks and as the dinner began to progress it was noticed that the entertainment at that time was rather scarce, never one to shy from the limelight Alan boldly took to the stage and performed his now world famous (or infamous depending on which way your looking) magical chicken trick, astounding many of the club members and hotel guests alike, ending in a repeat performance for the SAGA tour group who had all left their glasses on the bedside tables in their rooms and so couldn't see that far. If you haven't yet seen this astounding miracle just ask and I'm sure a show can be arranged.
After the dinner, as the DJ and band began
setting up, many of the members began resettling in the bar and began
discussing the various hills they had recently walked and where the best
pubs were and the end of it, when suddenly out of the darkness of the
dance hall came the woolly red balaclava that time forgot. Seeking out
its helpless victims it stalked the halls, leaping from perfect hairdo,
that had taken a team of experts five hours to create, to perfect hairdo
resulting in a total breakdown of self control and the urge to point and
laugh overwhelming the entire group.
