On June 16th of this year the Bonnie Scotland Tent celebrated its thirtieth birthday. For the founder of the Tent, Willie McIntyre, the night held a huge surprise, current Grand Sheik Janice Hawton announced that members of the Tent had colluded to dedicate a seat to him in the Glasgow Film Theatre, in recognition of him founding the Tent and the Bowler Dessert , for his continuing efforts with both and all the work he has done for the Sons of the Dessert.

In honour of this seat dedication, the Glasgow Film Theatre has been in touch with Willie stating that they will screen a Laurel and Hardy double bill on Sunday 27th August at the Glasgow Film Theatre (details below).

Many congrats Willie!
How nice it is to see that someone that dedicates so much of his time to keeping the memory and spirit of the Boys alive gets recognition such as this.
I have never met the man but I am always indebted to people like Willie that do so much work in ensuring that Laurel and Hardy will never be forgotton.

I was a bit embarrassed about all this, but I must also confess to being rather proud. I enjoy the work I do for the Sons of the Desert and I get an enormous amount of help from others, so they should all pat themselves on their backs. Not least of all, of course, are the members of this forum, who are doing something which exceeds anything I have ever done!
Compliments over!

Willie

It was a full house and it was great to see Stan and Ollie appreciated so much in a lovely cinema. Thanks go to all the Sons who came along.

GFT Sunday 27th September 2006.

Some Sons from the Bonnie Scotland,
Blockheads and Call of the Cuckoos Tents. There were lots more!

Nice images. The plaque looks great Willie. You really do deserve this. For those of you out there who have never met Willie, a nicer chap you will never meet.
