Hi, Linda and I will be heading over to Elgin for this run. Where is the Tesco's car park??

It has been a while since we have been in Elgin. :-(

Hello

You can't miss it. Stay on the A96 as if you're heading for Aberdeen.

When you reach Elgin, at 1st roundabout (just after Dr Greys Hospital) bear left.

At the next roundabout take the 1st exit, after about 100 yards at the next roundabout take the second exit.

That is the Tesco car park.

Kim & I look forward to meeting you both.

Ricky

Rain Saturday :(

Rain Monday :(

Clear 7 degrees on Sunday. YIPPEEEE. :lol: :lol: :lol:


Regretably the met sites I use, including the met office, don't agree:

http://www.weathercommerce.net/forecast.aspx?z=-4#

http://www.metoffice.gov.uk/weather/uk/ ... ather.html

TV weather says wet Saturday, Wetter Sunday (after a bright start)

Hope they're wrong for you.

OK everyone this is my humble apology, I'm an idiot. :oops:

I forgot the roundabout at Dr Grays.

I have amended the directions.

Sorry Malcolm you were correct.

BBC forcast says Saturday is the day for a run.
Sunday looks just Pish.

Anyone make the same run Saturday afternoon??

So going by all the different web sites that give weather there is a chance of it being sunny, wet, very wet, snow, pink with yellow stripes..... about as accurate as a astrology :roll:

I can probably make Saturday if we need to but I'm in the mind set where I'll either wake up Sunday and say "insert expletive it " and just go anyway, or say I've just washed the car and am not getting it dirty. Probably the first option for me, not so sure about her indoors :?

Basically, weather looks different everywhere you look!
BBC Scotland still says Sunday rain for NEast, Saturday, sunny afternoon.

Prob going to stay local, or hit the climbing wall.

Lets wait and see. :lol:
Met up before in sunshine, 10 minutes later a down pour, further 10 minutes sunshine again. :P
It was all good fun, remember Mike, you took the lead :wink: and as long as you do 50 rain goes right over the top :twisted:
All adds to the fun :lol:

The sites I go to are the ones we check for sailing and have always been close in the past. However the weather is not an exact science and it could do anything, after all we do live in Scotland! :D

If the concensus is saturday I'm game, otherwise I'll be at Tescos on Sunday morning and if it rains ........ well that's what the wipers are for!

Sun was out all day here, would have been a great day for it, spent the morning driving about with the roof down, and the afternoon washing it, just for it to rain tonight. Meant to be a total lunar eclipse tomorrow night, need the clouds to go for a while :?

Whilst driving about this morning I was crying/laughing at bmw soft top drivers who never put the roof down. Do they actually go down on them ? Or is that an urban legend :lol:

What a corker!!!

Roof down, all day.
Ellon, to Deeside via Dyce and Kingswells.
Down to Newtonhill, quick bouldering session at Boltsheugh with the boys and girls, blast back to Ellon.

Superb day all round. 3rd of March.
What a cracker.

Hope you all enjoyed your days as much, whatever you did.
