Ross Macpherson from the Company Section participated in the Glasgow Battalion Solo Piping Competition last weekend. Having only taken up the skill in October this year, Ross took 2nd place in the Junior Chanter Division A competition. We believe this is the first time the 200th have had any success in this event. Well done Ross.

The Anchor Boys attended the Glasgow Battalion Pantomime performance of Cinderalla at Battalion HQ on Saturday 7th December and followed this up with a mini party/games night on the 10th.

The Company Section night out to see ‘FreeBirds’ at the Showcase Cinema at Baillieston was a great success with all Boys eventually arriving at the correct location! (It’s ok Jonesy we won’t keep on about it) and finally the Junior Section finished off the year with a trip to the 10 Pin Bowling at Kirkintilloch on Tuesday 17th. We had a couple of really high scores in the lanes, a few spares and a good number of strikes. This was followed by burgers and hot dogs with time left to play some arcade games, air hockey and pool (just to let you know the Captain was undefeated!) [Read more…]
Six Boys from the 200th Glasgow Company, took part in this year’s Badminton Grand Prix. The event took place in Glasgow’s new Emirates Arena and Sir Chris Hoy Velodrome. There were numerous Companies that attended the day alongside a variety of Glasgow youth groups and schools.
The day allowed the Boys the chance to take part in different coaching sessions and games; led by Badminton Scotland’s professional coaching staff, which was then followed by the Badminton finals, where the Boys were able to watch international professionals competing against one another.
