An hour with George…
Sadly in 2019 our first and only Honorary Life President George Smith passed away. George had an unprecedented career which spanned over a remarkable 58 years where he served both as a referee and later as a Referee Observer.
It was the intention of the management committee to raise money at our Annual Dinner in 2020 for Blood bike Scotland which was a charity close to George and his family, unfortunately due to COVID the dinner was postponed. We would still like to raise money for this charity and therefore would like to encourage members to take part in “An Hour with George”.
As an Association we wanted to do a 24 hour charity event, which we would ask each participant to do an hour of running, walking or cycling at a designated time slot (these could be early in the early hours of the morning).
This will start on Tuesday 15th June at 16.00 which is exactly 31 years to the date and time of George’s World Cup Match at Italia 90 between Austria vs Czechoslovakia. with the aim to finish on Wednesday 16th.
