Just trying to catch up with a backlog of blog posts I have pencilled down to write, been busy and time has just ran away.
Seems like a long time ago, Saturday 26th November to be precise, the Warriors paid their annual visit to Spice in East Kilbride. Abby, the owner of Spice, has been a big supporter and sponsor of the Warriors since our first event, the Scottish Bike Show Sportive back in 2012.
As per the norm we met up at the Monty for a few breath fresheners. Being the start of the Xmas party season and work / family commitments, a few of our members were unable to attend. Davie Mullin managed to double book the day of the event so missed out. Stevie Haining made the effort, he got on the train from Clarkston and drank half a half bottle of Buckie before arriving at the Monty, having a couple of pints then declaring he was too drunk to go to Spice and headed home! To be fair he’s been on some diet thing and been off alcohol for several weeks then the Babycham bubbles went to his head!
With our breath well and truly freshened we headed across to Spice where we were greeted by Abby’s boys and taken through to our table in what was as usual a fully packed restaurant. Once again we were well looked after by Abby and his staff and fed copious amounts of food and alcohol. Abby really knows how to look after us as he produced two bottles of chilled Buckfast for me! How did he know I liked the Buckie? Good old Facebook! Lol
It was great to be back at Spice and catch up with Abby and his family. Sadly one of Abby’s good friends is visiting the Beaston for treatment. We all wish him well.
With the food out the way we retired to the bar area while Abby and his staff dug out their ear plugs before the Warriors murdered as many karaoke classics as they could! We certainly emptied the bar…….. maybe not in a good way! Lol
Great again to catch up with Andy Bennett and his cronies who make the effort every year to join up with the Warriors for a curry, beer and chinwag.
Thanks once again Abby for your continued support for the Whitelee Warriors and the Beatson Cancer Charity, it’s really appreciated!
