Dear Merchistonians and Friends
It's the end of half-term week. Was it a week for catching up with friends and family, or working through the 'to do' list? It also marks the end of the winter timetable although I'm not sure whether we've seen the end of cross-country
in the snow just yet!
And talking of catching up with friends, the London dinner on Friday 13 March, on the eve of the Calcutta Cup, is shaping up to be a good evening. Make sure you don't miss out. You can book your seats
The MRFC vs Accies match sequel also proposes to be another memorable event on 28 March. Chris Bain (95-00) has created a dramatic trailer which you might like to
Well done to the Scotland U20 6 Nations team who beat Wales at Netherdale last Friday - great to see Magnus Bradbury and former Captain of School Patrick Kelly playing their part in the 36-34 win. (Did anyone spot Mr Moffat in the audience
on BBC Alba?)
And next Friday, 27 February, sees our 2nd Edinburgh Business Breakfast
of the year (yes, the last Friday of the month is only a week away!) at Indigo Yard at 8am. This month's guest speaker is Alistair Macleod (53-57) who will be announcing his latest exciting business venture. Your clue is
here. For catering purposes, please let us know if you're planning on attending.
The Merchistonian Club will hold its AGM on 3 March 2015 in the School, Room E1, from 6-8pm. All Club members are welcome but again we would be grateful if you could
email if you intend on joining us.
On this day in 1962 astronaut John Glenn - not to be confused with John Glen (83-90) - was the first American to orbit the earth. In the week that saw 100 people shortlisted for a one-way mission to
Mars, we've come a long way in 53 years, yet as Seneca wrote 'Non est ad astra mollis e terris via'.
