Burns Night: Rabbie, Tam and Cutty Sark
Saturday, January 24, 2015 * Oahu Country Club * 5:00 pm Put on your best Highland attire and enter the spooky world of Tam 0' Shanter!
All0way Kirk, S0uth Ayrshire, Sc0tland
Plans are underway for another great tribute to Scotland's Bard, Robert Burns. The Oahu Country Club will again transform into a Scottish castle with the Celtic Pipes and Drums entering from "the moors of Scotland." A theatrical rendering of the epic poem Tam o' Shanter (1791) will be performed, the poetic music of Burns sung, and traditional dances danced by The Royal Scottish Country Dance Society.
Burns Night is our Society's most traditional event at which we toast the culture we hail from and the bard who embodied that culture in poetry and songs. Many members like to bring friends to Burns Night to share their culture and Burns' poetry, perhaps by reserving a whole table of eight at member prices.
Even though we try to keep costs down every year, prices continue to rise. We have had to increase the price by $5 in each category. The quality of the food & the Club itself, the Committee's creative entertainment efforts, and of course the camaraderie of all the guests, make this a memorable evening at a very reasonable price. Reservations are now being taken for Early Bird Special prices. See the reservation form (.pdf). Note that we are starting the evening with the cocktail hour at 5:00 pm this year.
This truth fand honest Tam o' Shanter,
As he frae Ayr ae night did canter,
(Auld Ayr, wham ne'er a town surpasses
For honest men and bonie lasses.)
She prophesied that late or soon,
Thou would be found deep drown'd in Doon;
Or catch'd wi' warlocks in the mirk,
By Alloway's auld haunted kirk. -Robert Burns
