District Gavel Competition 2016
Held at Arbroath Rotary Club 21 April 2016
Most people know about Rotary's charitable fundraising for projects at home and abroad, and of course that's a big part of what we're about. However, Rotary is also about having fun. The Gavel is a hotly contested but friendly intra-mural series of traditional pub games, played between participating Clubs in our Rotary district - an area which covers every part of Scotland north of a line from the River Forth to the Isle of Skye. The Gavel contest gives an opportunity for Rotarians to meet together socially, while enjoying some friendly inter-club competition.
This year the Club made it all the way to the final where we met up with the Stonehaven Club to do battle! We were met by a team obviously full of confidence and all wearing the TeeShirt to prove it. The evening was hosted by the Arbroath Club who made us all very welcome and the speaker was also fae Dundee to talk about the V&A at the Waterfront. So that was a good omen for us.
What fun it all was, great fellowship and whilst the result might not be the most important aspect of the night, it was certainly the icing on the cake as far as the Dundee team was concerned. We were well supported too so, a great all round result - well done everybody!
