The Java St. Andrew Society (JSAS) was founded in 1919. The Society aims to celebrate Scotland and all things Scottish here in Jakarta. From smaller gatherings for a wee swallie to ceremonious extravaganzas such as the annual JSAS Charity Ball we bring opportunities for everyone to raise their glasses and toast Bonnie Scotland. With a skirl o' the pipes and a swish o' the kilt we urge you to dree oot the inch as ye hae done the span.
A message from the Chieftain
Many thanks to all who attended the Whisky Tasting on Saturday 19 September - I think the only ones disappointed were those who could not attend.
Two important messages were announced at the Whisky Tasting and I want to ensure these reach the widest audience possible.
Firstly, tickets are now ON SALE for this year's St Andrew's Ball on 28th November 2015. Get your orders and payments in this month for an early bird discount. Put together a table with friends, order a table and find friends to fill it, or book your seats and make friends with others at your table on the night. Regardless, get in early - last year was sold out and many were left disappointed.
The ball is shaping up to be a great night and we have a fantastic package for auction - are you a rugby fan? do you like Hong Kong? how about business class travel and luxury accommodation?........I think you probably get the picture. Come along and bid for this fantastic package, courtesy of Cathay Pacific, and at the same time do your bit to help some very worthy causes....which brings me to the second important message.
Scott Thompson sets off in less than a week on his mammoth challenge in aid of four worthy causes. Get behind him, donate if you can and follow his progress on www.becakterus.com. Java St Andrew Society is a silver sponsor prior to the challenge and has also pledged to donate all proceeds from the auction mentioned above to the same charities, and for this money to be attributed to Scott's efforts.
