The 5th Glengoyne Auld Enemy Dinner saw 300 guests treated to an evening of non-stop entertainment. Jill Douglas our MC again oversaw the evening, whilst ex-England & Lions legend John Bentley led the guests through “Telfer’s Top Team” game. Bentos was in hilarious form as the guests endeavoured to match the England/Scotland XV from the 80’s & 90’s chosen by Jim Telfer. Congratulations to Shaun Middleton and his table from Dunedin LLP who were victorious and won Glengoyne hip flasks as well as bottles of Regimental red wine.
Scotland & Lions legend Scott Hastings was the question master for the players panel, which included David Duckham, Doddie Weir, Peter Winterbottom & Al Kellock. The panel gave an insight into their toughest opponent as well as anecdotes from previous Calcutta Cup matches, whilst Scott did a great job in keeping Doddie under control !
The Auld Enemy Dinner’s regular auctioneer, Jonny Gould, once again had everyone in stitches as his unique style got the best out of the bidders and raised an amazing £83,000 in the live auction.
Thanks again to all the table hosts for their continued support and see you all in London 2017 !
