'Pitch Past Present and Future'

Dear Merchistonians and Friends

In case you missed the Tweets this week, we are looking for Merchistonians to compete against the pupils in this year's Games which take place on Thursday 23 June. Please call me on 0131 312 2262 or respond to this email if you are interested in taking part.

If you are buying a very late gift for the dad in your life (Father's Day in UK is this Sunday) then you might find something, as well as helping the School, if you buy through Easyfundraising.  You can earn extra pennies with these great deals this weekend.

MRFC are taking part in the 2016 StayStrongStu 7s tournament at the Tynedale Beer and  Cider Festival tomorrow from 12.30. To find out more click here, it looks like a great day out.

In 2015, the School's junior golfers were ranked top by the ISGA and they are in place to remain top of the leadership board for the 2016 Junior National Championships. On Sunday, Chris Cowan (79-85), Roger Baird (73-78), Gavin Thain (79-85), Nick White (83-89), Matthew Gray (79-85) and Ronnie Irving (52-58) are braving a tournament against the talented young golfers.  We wish you the best of luck, it may well be required. As if it will not be tense enough, Ronnie will be going head to head with his grandson, keep an eye out for an update on this exciting match.

As we draw towards the end of term and start making arrangements to say goodbye to the Upper Sixth pupils, we also have to part with the wonderful Joanna Khan. Jo's commitment to the Club and sports camps over the last two years has been invaluable and she will be greatly missed.  On behalf of everyone I would like to thank Jo for everything she has done, I know she will absolutely shine in her new role.

Talking of the summer camps, those facing the perennial problem, of what to do to keep their sons busy during the summer months…can find out more here.

Thank you for a great response to last week's request for news! Please do keep sending me any snippets you have… or tell me about Merchistonian:
