Summer Ceilidh 2019

Dancing Flowers of Edinburgh with the club bunting in the background

Our summer social event was held a week later this year, on Saturday 2 February.

Once again, the weather was hot and sunny on the bowling green and we had our biggest attendance yet, with 29 club members and 17 family members and friends, including 10 children.

Johnsonville Bowling Club volunteers gave us lots of helpful tips on bowling, but there were still a lot of bowls straying into unplanned territory …

As always, we had a lot of fun with the programme of mostly Scottish Country Dances Rod put together and enjoyed this year’s ceilidh items and a quiz on Scottish general knowledge questions.

Anne taught us a simple line dance – the ever increasing tempo of the Cowboy Hustle was a definite challenge! John M gave us his modern twist on Shakespeare’s Sonnet 29, as well as the eloquent traditional version, and then turned quiz master. Kate shared her talents, singing two pieces by Mozart: Ave Verum Corpus, and then Voi Che Sapete from the Marriage of Figaro. Thank you all for making our day special.

Thanks also to everyone who helped with setup and packup, brought delicious potluck food, and took on kitchen duties. Special thanks to Maureen S who once again coordinated registrations and potluck contributions.

John Patterson and Deborah Shuker kindly took photos of the day. Click here to take a look at the fun and laughter
