The British Ambassador (Sir Simon Gass) with the new
Chieftain Ethel Martis prepare to enter the ballroom

The Guests of Honour are piped to their seats

The main Hasher's table

The first course (Smoked Scottish Salmon)

The Haggis is brought in with great ceremony

Traditional speech & knife wielding over the Haggis

The second course of Haggis, Neeps (turnips) & Tatties (potatoes)

The staff work hard at serving us

Now loosening-up after eating and some drinking

The third course (a choice was available)
This was followed by a sweet course (of course!)

The band plays another Scottish dance tune

The waiters bring more bottles of spirits & liqueurs - and coffee

AND NOW, a few individual portraits of our hashers...










The Scottish dancing continues
(Thankfully, the bandleader called all the steps)




The piper plays rock!

The piper is very popular with the girls

This guy has no problem getting dates!


The DJ plays some good dance tunes

Onto the wee hours...

(At this point the photographer was too inebriated to take any more photos)
