Dear Merchistonians and Friends
When visiting St Andrews last Saturday, the Headmaster and Mrs Hunter had a chance meeting with Graeme Scott (53-58). Graeme has been a stalwart of Merchiston, spending time both on the Board of Governors and as the Merchistonian Golf Captain. Moreover, Graeme is a graduate of St Andrews University and has also sat on the equivalent of their Board of Governors. He lives just outside of St Andrews and it was a great pleasure for the Headmaster and Mrs Hunter to be reminded of the beauty, splendour and tradition of the University, including St Salvator's Chapel.
Graeme and other golfers will be interested to know that Merchiston Castle School has received an Arnold Palmer
1-iron to use as the Merchiston Castle School Arnold Palmer Match-Play Trophy. Thanks to Andrew Haddow (60-65)
who caddied for Arnold Palmer at Latrobe CC in 1966. Read the full Scotsman article here
Due to the congestion of fixtures and the split start times of matches scheduled for Saturday 29 October, we have taken the decision to rearrange the Rugby Supporters Lunch
planned for that day. Further details to follow.
With two weeks to go, now is the time to book your spot for The Merchistonian Annual Dinner

Thanks to Michael Bremner (87-90)
for hosting such an insightful Business Breakfast this morning. It was inspiring to hear how you have grown your business year on year and your future plans for Highland Experience Tours Ltd.
Next month, join us at Indigo Yard where Graeme Crossley (95-99) will talk about how advertising has changed since he left Merchiston in 1999.
Finally, a warm thank you goes out to all of you who helped in Laura Barley's fundraising efforts by donating to Meningitis Now. This was in memory of her late husband Euan Barley (92-95) and you can still support Laura here.
