Sausage week - Barn dance & Bonfire
« on: October 13, 2011, 10:34:11 am »
To celebrate Sausage week 2011, the Scottish Pig Keepers Association are holding a barn dance & bonfire on Saturday 5th of November - this is open to everyone, member or not  :)
The event will be at Woodend Farm, Cowdenbeath, Fife, KY4 8EX, start time 7pm.
We will be having a ceilidh band and pig racing (not with real pigs - but our version is just as entertaining !) Food will be provided and you can look forward to a hog roast and a selection of mouth watering sweet treats. We will also be holding a raffle and if your aim is good you might get lucky in our ‘throw a quid’ at a bottle of whiskey game - closest wins the bottle (and it’s a BIG bottle !)
Tickets cost £8 per person and you are welcome to ‘bring your own booze’ - squash will be available for children.
Please make your payment by Paypal to scottishpigs@gmail.com or by sending a cheque made payable to ‘The Scottish Pig Keepers Association’ to Karen McKay, SPKA secretary, Yonderton Farm, Lesmahagow, Lanark, ML11 0HL - no later than 1st November and please include a note of the names of those attending.
Children under 16 are welcome and there is no charge for under 5’s.

Hope to see you there  :wave:

Hi, Best of luck with your your Hog roast and bonfire night. :thumbsup:
I just wish you were a bit closer to me (North yorkshire)  as our local village Bonfire is no longer, its all about insurance and health and safety- I know its needed, but no more village bonfires in our valley................................ I might have to have my own private one  ;D
Regards

I'm going to stock up on sweet treats on Friday  :yum:
I'm thinking chocolate fudge cake, carrot cake (for the health conscious  ;) :D) and a selection of scones & muffins...... does that not sound worth coming for ?  ;D ;D ;D

Not forgetting a very original entertainment programme (and a wee surprise I'm managing to keep secret  ;))
If you want to come and haven't gotten round to it - just reply on here and pay at the door on Saturday night.
Everyone is welcome and it would be great to have a really good turnout in celebration of the great British banger  :thumbsup:

See you there  :wave:

If anyone is struggling with directions - have a look on google earth  ;)
If you type in the postcode KY4 8EX, you'll see Woodend Farm (it's got a marker for AA Skip hire and a dog? for 'Whitehill' next to it, hopefully shouldn't be too difficult to find (although knowing my sense of direction I could be wrong  ::) :D)
Oooh it's getting nearer  :thumbsup:

Well I had a great time, ate far too much of the delicious hog roast and finally got to meet Happy Hippy, Lill and Robert.  :thumbsup:

Thanks for the obvious efforts that went into organising it, we'll be back.  :)
