In Topic: Sunshine Appeal Spfl Predictor 2015/16

29 July 2015 - 08:51 PM

Signed up - money to be handed over at the next WESTA meeting. Hoping for a better showing than last season - though there's always the monthly prize to aim for. I've only one it once in two years!

In Topic: Car Park Incident

25 July 2015 - 03:52 PM

To be fair - that might be her insurance company. When a young lad ran into the back of me on the M8 last August, my insurance company just took it for granted I would get a hire car while mine was getting fixed. Really glad they did cos it took nearly 10 days for the car to get back to me.


The lad had wanted to avoid going through insurance companies so I originally got 3 quotes who all said it would take 3 days to fix as resprays were required. Went through insurance in the end because the damage was far worse than it had appeared at first and the company that the insurance company used had to order parts.

In Topic: June Westa Meeting

22 July 2015 - 08:06 PM

Just wanted to let folk know that there will be a few friends of the late Sonny Lindsay meeting in the Iron Horse from 1.00 on Friday to have a few beers & toast his memory as it would have been his birthday at the weekend.

Sonny, who was one of the original WESTA members & veteran of countless trips to see Scotland over the decades, passed away in March after a battle with cancer.

If you knew him & find yourself in the area please pop in even if it's for just for a quick drink.



Sonny's exploits were legendary but I never knew him myself. I can't make the Horse on Friday but I will raise a glass in his memory. It's been a sad year for WESTA as we've lost a number of old stalwarts.

In Topic: Whats Everyone's Plans For The Draw?

20 July 2015 - 08:30 PM

Few of us looking to meet up & watch the draw. We know the Ballroom in Bellshill are having an event for it, anywhere else in or around Glasgow area doing the same?
Iron Horse?


WESTA are watching it in the basement bar of the Iron Horse (not me though as I'm going to the theatre.....have organised the pre theatre meal for Boteco do Brasil in the hope they are showing it on the TV like previous draws).  All welcome at the WESTA do though.

In Topic: National Lottery

20 July 2015 - 06:40 PM

I've just discovered I had a near miss with the lottery at the weekend.  Been putting on my own ticket for years and had 3 numbers on Saturday, won 25 quid.  Was just checking the one I put on with the girls at work and that also had 3 numbers and won 25 quid.  However it was a different 3 numbers on each ticket so technically I had all 6 winning numbers.  If they'd been on the one ticket I'd have won £4.3M.  I won 30 quid.....  :cry:


Similar thing happened to me - I'd 3 numbers on my normal line but the draw was on a Christmas Eve so my sister had given us all a lucky dip each as part of our Christmas present and I got the other 3 numbers on the lucky dip line. Gutted!
