Braw Lads

The Braw Lads' Executive

The function of the Braw Lads' Executive Council is to organise the events of the Braw Lads' Gathering, from the raising of the funds to the fulfilment of the Gathering. To achieve this, the members meet every month, year in year out but so far as the public is concerned the main interest is confined to a little over a week with a few events taking place before that.

A new Braw Lad and Braw Lass are chosen by five members of the Executive Council, plus the Chairman and Vice Chairman prior to Declaration Night. Their Attendants are the Braw Lad and Lass from the two previous years. Announcement of the new principals takes place in April and from then on the six are instructed on their duties at least twice a week.
