The ladies of Shiskine Institute gathered for their annual dinner at
the Kinloch Hotel on Monday 23rd May.

The evening started off with a delicious two course meal which everyone agreed was superb.

After coffee and mints we sat back to enjoy the evening's entertainment. Or rather we did not sit back, because soon Jerry our President had us split into six teams and what she pulled out of her bag took us all by surprise. Each team was given a pile of modelling balloons and a hand pump. We had to make a hat from the balloons and model them for the judge.

This proved hilarious, with the staff of the Kinloch peeping round the door to see what could possibly be so funny. A clapometer decided that there was no clear winner, but check out the photographs (click "read more" to view) and decide for yourself.

Marilyn Woods (pictured above) was presented with the Ferguson Trophy for the most points gained in the winter competition.

Jerry thanked everyone who had taken part in the competitions and the number of entries each month is still growing.

Following a quick game of stand up bingo, and further entertainment from Alice Anderson with some very amusing stories, we made our way out into the still very blustery night.
