Last week was the Clyde Cruising Club's Annual Prizegiving and Dinner Dance for 2013. It is a "Black Tie and Carriages at 1 am" sort of affair. These are my photos with the exception of the one of myself that was taken by C. Reeves.
Prizes are given in the form of trophies given by various people over many, many years.... 103 years to be exact!
I was given the decanter and 2 wine glasses which I can keep. Like all trophies awarded they go back after one year. I accidentally dropped the blue box and one of the wine glasses rolled out and smashed on the floor as I returned to the dinner table. Blush ... the snib came open on the side of the blue box holding them.
Here is our trophy shelf now with my one remaining (rather large) wine glass. The whole display fairly raises the tone of our living room! The little quaich on the left is one that Iain was awarded as a keeper some years ago.
The men in all their finery really add to the glamorous evening! Tartan trews were also in evidence!
