Revenge of the Haggis
Photos by John Harrison

This years Summer Stramash: Revenge of the Haggis - now an annual event held by the St. Andrews Association in Russia, was held, for the third year running, in the gardens of the British Ambassadors residence on Sophiiskaya Naberezhnaya. As ever the event was well attended, and this time the crowd was treated to non-standard Scottish weather: We will be charging extra for the rain said Alan Thompsonthe new chieftain of the Society.

The Scots achieved their goal in demonstrating that not only the Americans with their 4th of July celebrations can throw a good party in the summer. A few Kilted Scots made the most of the excuse and assisted by Rab Spiers, a former Cheiftain of St. Andrew Societies worldwide, paid tribute to John Warrens efforts in creating the St. Andrew Society Haggis. The goal of the event was to give St. Andrews Society a family day out, using our charities to demonstrate what they do best: entertaining other children. This meant that parents were able to enjoy, by taking turns with their spouses or friends, some good Scottish whisky, and entertainment by Lost in Moscow, culminating in a sterling performance by Rod Stewart (tribute act).
