Dear Merchistonians and Friends
With the campus emptied of young men heading home for Easter eggs and for some critical revision for the summer term exams, we swap highly strung boys for the strings and melodic tunes of the Edinburgh International Harp Festival hosted
by the School.
'Plucky' Merchistonian golfer Calum Hill (11-13) won his
first US title in the ULM Wallace Jones Invitational at Black Bear Golf Club, Delhi, Louisiana. And in the ISGA competition, Angus Roberts gained an individual trophy. Congratulations to both.
No need to 'fret' about missing the MRFC vs Edinburgh Academicals rugby match, Raeburn Place gates open tomorrow at 12.30pm for fun for all the family ahead of the game at 2.30pm.
Merchistonians will be sad to learn of the death of Duncan M L Robertson (60-64) last Friday evening. A Service of Remembrance is to be held on Tuesday 31 March at 1pm at St Catherine's Church, Church Lane, Towersey, Thame, OX9 3QL with a reception nearby afterwards.
There will be no Edinburgh Business Breakfast at the end of April. The next will be Friday 29 May.
Before I get any further out of tune, that's all the news from me this week, and indeed, for the next 3 Fridays over the holiday period. I wish you all a very pleasant Easter, when it comes, and leave you with one final thought: why are harps like elderly parents?
Both are unforgiving and hard to get into and out of cars!
