SLO Committee Update

We are delighted to say that the second legends flag is now in production. We had a tremendous response from people suggesting who we should include and after the voting closed last week we can announce that the six legends set to take their place are Paul Burns, Tommy Bryce, Billy Houliston, Jimmy Robertson, Iain McChesney and Roy Henderson. The artwork is not far away from being ready so hopefully in the next couple of weeks we should see the flag.


This week’s playlist is chosen by SLO committee member Iain Wright. Although we still have quite a few playlists in at the moment please feel free to send us your favourite tunes and what you'd like to hear over the speakers at Palmerston.


Tickets for the Meet the Manager night are selling very well. The evening on Saturday 17th March in the Tartan Lounge at Palmerston will also include a sports quiz Tickets are only £5 and this includes a half time pie & peas. If it's a success then we then can look at hosting some more of events like it throughout the season. Come along for some chat with the manager, assistant manager and special guests Steve Bowey and Paddy Atkinson. Tickets can be purchased from any of the SLO committee and also through the club shop. Numbers are limited.


Don’t miss the opportunity to get your name on the Centenary Shirt, the deadline was extended by Macron to allow another month of sales. Over 600 people have managed to taken advantage of this once in a lifetime chance so far. The cost is only £5 and you can see any of the SLO committee, pop into the office or fill it out via the link on the Official Website.


The committee, club and museum curator Iain McCartney have teamed together to open up the museum on a monthly basis, the first date arranged is Friday 23rd February at 2pm. Tours will be free but must be booked, contact any of the SLO committee or email [email protected] to book your space. It is hoped that with enough interest we can see these as a more regular feature with the possibility to open them to local schools and organisations.


There are various ways to contact the SLO committee with your suggestions or any issues that you would like to raise. We can be contacted using the link on the Official Website, Facebook, Twitter, Email or c/o the club office where we will collect any mail.


And finally, our charity of the week is the South of Scotland Wildlife Hospital, a local charity which was set up over 20 years ago. They are a charity which looks after rehabilitation and release of all types of native wildlife which are brought to them by members of the public, SSPCA and local veterinary practices. They are currently looking for volunteers aged 15 and over who have a keen interest in wildlife. You can visit their Facebook page, call 01387 860461 or email them at [email protected] to offer your services.


Thanks once again for your support so far, Iain, Nathan, Ross & Simon…. Mon the South!
