Im sure there are many people who contribute to this website who have been to the club over those 50 years, whether as club members, visitors or as guest performers. The committee are hoping for a big turnout over the weekend - everyone is welcome. Anyone who cant be there - if youd like to post any memories you have of the club, please post them here, and Ill try to have them displayed over the weekend. If its OK with the moderators, Ill bump this thread once a week until the events kick off. Many thanks, Kenny Hadden
