Greetings Kankas and Kankies.

As most of you know, Nadeem and his girlfriend Rebecca are coming to Ankara from Glasgow to see the Ankaragucu v Fenerbahce match on weekend of 8/9 May.

They will arrive in Ankara late evening 6 May and depart early on 11 May.

If you check out the posts for February, you will see a photo of Nadeem resplendent in his Ankaragucu top when I met him in Renfrewshire one afternoon !

Nadeem is a Glasgow Rangers fan, but we won't hold that against him, because he has become a regular contributor to the Blog for about a year and can now clearly have the 'distinction' of being called an Ankaragucu Fanatik !

How many people do you know who would fly from Scotland to Turkey just to see Ankaragucu play in a 'live' match ? Answers not necessary !

The Kankas thought it would be a good idea to Meet n' Greet them before the match, so we have decided to do that on Friday 7 May.

Maniac Kanka Harun has negotiated a special deal at an excellent venue as follows -

Where – The Beyzade Restaurant on Esat Caddesi in Kavaklidere.

When – 7 May. From 8.30pm till about midnight.

Food – Mezze/Kebabs/Salad/Dessert/Snacks

Drink – Unlimited local drinks …....... (yummy Efes ??!!)

Music – Live (Turkish)

Dress – Smart casual but ….......... no footie tops !!!

Price – TL65 per person

This is a very popular venue, so Harun must give numbers for our reservation by 30 April. Therefore, please email Oz Kanka Chris or I before that date to let us know if you are attending, and if so, how many.

Let's give them a typical Kanka welcome !

Look forward to hearing from you all.

All the best from Eski Kanka Jim
