The World Cup is now officially upon us, bringing a Brazilian glow to the month ahead. Pubs, televisions and homes are now officially packed until 13 July. Are you delighted the tournament is finally here? Or are you waiting patiently for the
Rugby World Cup in 2015?
In terms of Merchiston's own events, tonight sees the School and the Club host a victory dinner for the winning Halford Hewitt golf team. Past players and Captains from all over will be gathered in the Old Library for a well-deserved celebration.
Expect to see plenty of pictures on the website next week!
To shooting: the Club vs. School match is taking place tomorrow (14 June). It will be both clays and .22 rifle. There is also a Public Schools Veterans match (fullbore rifle) at Bisley on Thursday 10 July.
Lastly, it is with sadness that I announce Mrs Patricia Forbes, Headmaster Forbes' wife, passed away on 7 June. Our condolences to the Forbes family.
Enjoy the weekend, gentlemen. Pour yourselves a pint, watch the football and let me know your predictions for 2014's World Cup champions!
