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 have held various events such as a footgolf afternoon and attempted to dispel the myth that referees are all bad at football (results were mixed!). We have also held a go karting event, various social drinks and our annual charity quiz.
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!
We have organised a “Beerienteering” Social Event on the evening of Saturday 30th April 2022. Beerienteering, a take on orienteering, is a pub-crawl themed challenge, where teams work out the bars in Edinburgh they have to visit using sets of clues and a map provided at the start of the night (naturally these will be football and refereeing related!). Teams can also take on additional challenges for bonus points; with a to-be determined prize for the winning team (we promise it will be good!). This event is open to all, and as such the challenge sheets will have non-alcohol alternatives at all venues.
A number of members have already confirmed that they are taking part in this event, however we would really like to encourage as many members as possible to come along for what is sure to be a really enjoyable evening. Teams can be arranged by request, so if there is a group of people you would like to be in a team with, please drop an email and we will be sure to accommodate this. The event would also be an excellent opportunity for our newer members to come along and meet a number of us involved in the association, so we would encourage as many of you as possible to come along!
If you would like to come along, please email Ewan Pow at firstname.lastname@example.org and we will circulate further information regarding meeting points and timings closer to the event. Please direct any team requests or further questions to the above email also.
