On Friday the Tenth October the Fauldhouse & Crofthead Burns Club held their first Annual Competition dedicated to the Address to the Haggis. President John Campbell was delighted to to welcome a total of Eight competitors, who after registration were invited to Address The "Beastie", with each competitor delivering their own interpretation of this World Wide famous Poem.
After a short recess the audience were invited to fill in their Voting Forms which, in turn, were presented to the main Adjudicator for the evening "the well kent Burnsian Murdo Morrison" who, after much deliberation, was pleased to announce Wull Kirk as the overall winner. He also made the comment that he had been impressed by the Competitors and their various interpretations, which had been delivered in a manner which was highly entertaining and sometimes very humourous and he concluded by Voting the evening to be a complete success.
