Being a referee isn’t just about matches and training. As an association, we hold regular social events where the emphasis is very much on having fun and getting to know other members.
Events are held throughout the year. We recently held a footgolf afternoon and attempted to dispel the myth that referees are all bad at football (results were mixed!). November will see us take to the track for a go karting event and later in the month the annual charity quiz takes place at Tynecastle (see below for details).
The main event in the social calendar though is the annual dinner, which further details on this and tickets will be announced soon, so watch this space!

Annual Charity Quiz
Over the years we have raised close to £13,000 for local worthy charities and today we are delighted to announce that the 11th annual EDRA Football Quiz will be held at Tynecastle Stadium on Thursday 20th September, exactly the same style and format as the previous events. Last year the quiz attracted a record entry of 28 teams and as this is close to capacity you are encouraged to submit your entry as soon as possible please.
Entry costs £75 per team (max 5 people per team), which includes the buffet. This is always a great evening, with a fresh and challenging quiz, so please support the event and help to make it as successful as last year, when a record amount was raised for charity. Buffet will begin at 18:45 with quiz following at 19:30. To enter a team, please email Mike.Tumilty@aberdeenstandard.com.
