A few weeks ago I was approached by a fellow Raith fan who asked if I fancied starting a Whisky club, being a longtime devotee of the dram, naturally I said "I'll give it some thought".

After careful consideration and on-going discussions with potential interested parties I've decided to give it a go if I can generate enough interest.

The format is open to discussion but initially will be as follows:

2 trial events and if successful a view to holding 4 meets a year.
Open to all (Raith and non Raith fans) on a 1st come 1st served basis.
Events limited (initially) to 25 people but with scope to expand.
Meetings to be held at Starks Park within one of the clubs or lounges.
15 per person which will entitle attendee's to sample 4 separate (25ml) whiskies and discuss their merits or if necessary their lack there-of.
Cheese and Pate nibbles to be available.
Events to be on a Sundays at SP following 1st team away games.

The plan is of course to utilise Starks Park as a venue thus generating some extra income for the club whilst at the same time branching into the community with something outwith RRFC and the game it's self.
I already have already almost a dozen interested parties and some have also expressed a desire to donate a bottle to the initial event/events to get the cask rolling.

I'm hoping to go for a launch on Sunday the 15th December after the Falkirk away game, with a 1pm start just in time for the football in the background on TV (Man Utd,/Everton, Wolves/Spurs & Arsenal/Man City or Celtic V Hibs).

If it's a success then there is scope for similar events with Gin, Rum and even beer and wine.
I've long been an attendee at a similar styled club that meets (outwith Kirkcaldy) bi-monthly and although it may not solve an ongoing cash crisis at a stroke it does give use to the premises and will raise outlooks as spirits go down.

Ladies and Gent's, what are your thoughts?

Would be interested in the whisky, but you can ram your cheese nibbles. Can't stand the stuff.
Pies or bridies would be a much more appropriate partner.

Then again, the last time I drank whisky in the 200 club was in the company of yourself and the Wolfman.
Quaking at the prospect of a repeat performance.
