Ken’s 15 years as Club Treasurer is the second longest anyone has held that office in the history of ‘Let it Blaw’. However, for all the administration work that he has devoted to the Club, he’s probably best known for his word-perfect recitations from a memory that seems to have no limit. In a Club where the norm is members knowing one or two poems which they repeat periodically, Ken’s most notable recitations, in addition to Tam o’ Shanter on four occasions, are :

2004,  2013
2006
2007
2008
2009,  2015
The Ronalds of the Bennals
2017
To the Guidwife of Wauchope House
2018

This list will no doubt continue to grow.
