The Thistle - 27th August 2011

President’s Message

Hello all and welcome to the new look website.

Firstly I’d like to thank George Price for the sterling work he has put in to build the new site which is the result of many hours of painstaking toil at the keyboard. Thanks also are due to Scott Cuthbertson, George Fitzpatrick and Mike Archibald for their input into the design and final appearance of the site.

As your new president I hope to continue the trend of interesting, informative and entertaining lectures and enjoyable theme nights with lots of participation from the members which has become something of the norm at the club. Any club is nothing without its members and the SCA is growing stronger with the addition of a number of new faces to the association. Near the end of last season we had 5 or 6 new members and the social evenings we have hosted in the city centre have attracted interest from at least 4 potentials.

This season opens with a lecture by the exciting young Scottish mentalist Colin McLeod, who recently appeared on Penn & Teller and we have Honorary Life President Eddie Dawes lecturing on the history of the SCA in October.

New Season

Hi there,

Summer seems to be over, Schools in , Football's back but it's not all bad news...

We're only two weeks away from the start of the 2011-2012 season for Magic, and only two weeks away from the opening night with a lecture from rising star in mentalism, Scotland's own Colin McLeod.

This lecture will be in the SCA's usual Venue of the Scottish Mask and Puppet Centre, Balcarres Avenue, Kelvinside, Glasgow. 

Admission to non-members is £10.00, but anyone opting to join the SCA will have this sum credited against membership dues.

A full programme of events and lectures for the forthcoming season will be released and posted on the web in due course (the website is currently under reconstruction) but a wee trailer is in order for our Mega Auction, which will once again be held in the Premier Inn, Ballater Street, Glasgow. This will take place on Sunday November 13th (likely times are setup/registration for sellers from Noon, Sale from 13.00 hours.

I hope you can make it along on the 7th

Brendan Kirk
Secretary to the SCA


New website


The new website is still under construction. We would like to go live with it at the beginning of the new season.

It would help the process if you give us feedback about any comments you have.
