BIFHSGO “British Pub Night” ! in The Observatory at Algonquin College.
I settled in with a Somersby Cider, watched the slide show of beautiful member-submitted photographs of British locations (I REALLY want to go to Scara Brae now!) and listened to a lovely opening song by BIFHSGO President Barbara Tose.
“Hibernia”, a beautiful vocal and harp duo played the first half of the evening, and they were lovely. I met a few friendly people who introduced themselves, and we had draws and trivia.
I did terribly at the trivia, but it was fun 🙂 The second half of the night, “Mooncoin” , a guitar, fiddle and drum trio played. They were very enjoyable with a great sense of humour 😉 My foot may have been tapping through most of their sets.
By the end of the evening, this happened:
I won the *Big Prize* of the night! I was SO excited! I may have squeaked, I’m really not sure. I’m not even sure if I was supposed to hand in my ticket, even though I made sure to present it as ‘proof’ that I belonged to that number. Did I mention, I was excited?
We ended the evening with a closing song from BIFHSGO President Barbara Tose, and it was lovely!
Thanks #BIFHSGO and #OGSConf2017 and #AncestryDNA , it was a fun evening and I’m really looking forward to the next 4 days!
