Mixter Maxter 9 MM09 Date  8 April 2017 Haddington had forgiven me after the previous year's battle, so I calmed things down with a nice genteel topic: birds. It was appropriate because of the participants' bird brains.
Location Haddington
Theme "Birds"

Mixter Maxter 10 MM10 Date  25 November 2017 Back to Peebles and a drop of the hard stuff: the theme was "the water of life", or whisky. However, we could only sing about it, because drinking would diminish our musicality.
Location Peebles
Theme "Whisky"
