Club Profile: Kirkintilloch Emerald


Posted By CSC Affiliation Media

Posted in Articles, Club Profile

Our 2nd club profile is a little closer to home. Treasurer Jim White talks us through the ‘Kirky’ Emerald with some nearly naked moments.

What is the history and the story of your club?

Our club has been running now for 26 years and still have a hard core of 50 members who still go to the games. We operate a weekly tote system which we have been doing since the club started, and we draw it every Sunday night in McGinleys Bar Kirkintilloch.

Who Is your current commitee and where do you leave from?

Our bus leaves from McGinleys Bar and Brian is very good to us as we have our social events there we have had some great day’s and nights in there sometimes we can’t remember how good lol.

Our current committee is: President Mark Tracey, Secretary Martin Hattie, Treasurer Jom White, Bus Convener Graham Kinney and a Social Committee of Anne Carr, Angela Lambell, Joanne Cairney & Clair Kerr.

Favourite bus moment or story that is printable?

The bus has had some very good trips abroad and down south, and we now have our yearly overnight stay in either Aberdeen or Inverness there are some storys to tell about these trips but the one that sticks out is the stay at the Double Tree hotel Aberdeen when one of our members got locked out of his room with just his boxer shorts on.

He had to sneak downstairs to reception to get a spare key but to his horror the bar was still open where a few members of the club were still drinking it must have been funny to watch him moving between the plants trying to hide lol.

We also have some members going to Las Vegas in June 2013 for the convention so we might have more storys.

Does the CSC sell it’s own merchandise?

The club have some badges for sale which are £3.00 + pp and we will have polo shirts next season
