OOR CLUB - January 9, 2009
Highlands of Scotland
DAVID HUNTER The first Scottish Studies Society event attended by Patricia and Doug Ross was the "Oor Club" on January 9 in the Bow and Arrow Pub at 1954 Yonge Street in Toronto. David Hunter, the president of the Scottish Studies Foundation, sent a notice and invitation a few days earlier to see his "Highlands of Scotland" video . . . a tribute to Tom Muir.

Tom Weir, December 29, 1914 (Glasgow) - July 6, 2006 (Balloch), served in the Royal Artillery during WWII. In 1950 he was a member of the first Himalayan expedition, and two years later he was one of the first to explore the closed mountain ranges of Nepal east of Kathmandu. Weir wrote a column for The Scots Magazine for over 50 years, and he hosted the TV series Weir's Way from 1976 to 1987. Tom Weir was awarded Scottish TV Personality of the Year and MBE in 1976. In 2000, he earned the John Muir Lifetime Achievement Award in recognition of his environmental work.
