Despite the difficulties caused by geography in Scotland, the Scottish Circle meets several times a year for fun outings and networking. New members are always welcome to join us so if you would like more details please contact scottish@wes.org.uk. WES members in Scotland are spread out over quite a large area, to keep us all in regular contact we have a YAHOO groups web page just for the Scottish circle of WES. The group can be joined simply by sending an e-mail to wes_scottishcircle-subscribe@yahoogroups.co.uk

Regular Scottish get togethers

January 2009 Happy New Year to you all.

Please come along to the meeting in Glasgow 21st January 6:30 at Scottish Engineering 105 West George Street Glasgow G2 1QL to discuss the Scottish students conference and Doris Gray Fund. Carol Marsh is drafting an agenda.
Every month there is a get together at a restaurant / bar in either Glasgow or Edinburgh. (January in Glasgow, February in Edinburgh, etc) These are very informal get togethers and a great chance to meet others. New members and prospective members are always welcome, and so are women students wanting to make contact with practising engineers. Contact the Scottish Circle Yahoo group to find out where the next one is. We usually meet on the 3rd Wednesday of the month at 6pm.

Glasgow meetings - third Wednesday of alternate months starting in 21 January 2008. Edinburgh - third Wednesday of alternate months starting 18 February 2008. Exact venues to be confirmed.

There is also a network of women students studying in Scotland who can be contacted through src@napier.ac.uk

Events we have had in the past

November 2007 Launch of HMS Diamond
12 of us met up on a wet Tuesday afternoon along with about 10 000 others to watch the launch of HMS Diamond from BAE´s Govan shipyard in Glasgow. It was also a chance to see HMS Defender in blocks inside the building sheds of the shipyard. We were all caught by surprise at how slowly the ship started to move, but by the end she hit the water at an astonishing speed.
