HISTORY

The Whisky Walk is traditionally held on the Sunday nearest the 27th of March when the club was first convened. It started by Brian Corrie IAbout a mile and half up the river Plym from the Trowlesworthy car park is a large rock which has been named Langs Rock after the Club House. Here we toast the river Plym allowing the river to have its tot. When the bottle is empty everybody attending signs their name on a sheet of paper which is put in the empty bottle (that is why it is necessary to ensure the bottle is drunk dry). The previous years bottle is dug up and the list retrieved and the latest bottle  buried in its place with the latest list to be retrieved the next year. We have had odd occasions when the burial place has been forgotten and the area has had extensive excavations to find it Another time a sniffer dog attached to the club was used. On yet another occasion the bottle was later moved by some younger members of  the club and replaced by their smaller bottle as they had been unable to attend the original ceremony.
