40th Anniversary Celebrations of the Oban Club
by Anne McFadyen
B&F February 2016
Our November Club night was a special night celebrating 40 years of the Club, with a packed audience which included folk who had travelled from as far afield as Gretna and Shetland.
Our guest band for the evening was the Charlie Kirkpatrick Trio. Charlie with Derek Hamilton and Gordon Young provided us with first class West coast music along with a lot of hilarity and craic!
Morven MacLeod, daughter of the late Duncan Campbell who was one of our founder members, presented the Club with a generous cash donation, which enabled us to purchase a new keyboard for the Club. This was much appreciated by the Committee and a lovely gesture in memory of Duncan who did so much for the Club over the years. Morven and another founder member Neil Sinclair from Connel were invited up to cut the 40th Anniversary cake, which was shared among the audience along with tea and coffee provided by the Club.
The night came to a close with the usual stramash.
Here’s to the next 40 years!!
