DREEL HALLS
Launch Weekend Celebrations

We're planning a weekend of celebrations to mark the completion of the external restoration work to the buildings formerly known as the Hew Scott Hall, Anstruther Wester Town Hall and St Nicholas Tower. The newly restored buildings will be renamed the Dreel Halls when the AIA takes ownership in January 2014. The weekend of celebrations will kick off with an official opening on Friday the 17th of January and follow with a whole weekend's worth of events.

Sounds like an awesome way to celebrate the halls.  :)
Will have to give this a pass, but looking forward to Yellae Deuks.

Ace - is the retro games afternoon a drop in thing, or a stay-all-afternoon sort of affair?

There ain't no rules, apart from no cheatin', no guns, just fun!

Drop in and out whenever you like. Feel free to bring a game that you'd like to play, or join one if there's an opening, or start a game that's there and invite others to play.

It's all good 8)

The AIA now have a Postcard Gallery on their website so you can see what's up for auction on Friday. You might recognise the names of a few contributors in there:

http://www.anstrutherimprovements.org/events-postcard-auction.php

If ye canna come to the auction but you'd like to bid on something then there's info on there on what to do.

Cheers! gb

Unfortunately we're not going to be able to make it up to this now - bit of a family emergency going on so we'll be down in Liverpool now.  Hope it all goes great and really pleased to see the halls open again!
