NSS event - Aboyne Bound Run

Postby Colin » Fri Apr 03, 2009 4:53 pm

With spring definitely sprung, I'm now taking names for the first full NSS run of the season on Sunday 19th April .

Full details can be found at this link but, as the organiser of this event, my plan is to take you up one of the area's finest roads (Cairn O'Mount) and potter around some of the B roads of Royal Deeside, stopping for what will hopefully be our usual high standard of lunch en route. We're hoping to meet up with an NSE convoy at some stage so it should be an interesting and fun day.

Please note

1. the start time still has to be finalised.
2. names to me below (pm me mobile phone number if I haven't already got it) by Sunday, 12th April please
3. remember to let me know if a passenger is coming along too so we can finalise numbers for lunch.
4. NSE names for lunch to Lorraine or Ian please. They'll keep me posted

Attendees as at 9th April
Colin Stuart
Tom Mcginnis & Jen
Scott Mcginnis

Alex Henderson
Roddy Maxwell & Pauline
Dave Makein & Caroline

Colin,
I am thinking of joining you from the top of the Cairn o' Mount, all being well, having lunch at Dinnet and maybe tagging on for a bit longer before heading for home. Trust that fits in with your plans.

Any other NSE folk taking part?????

No other NSE folk at this stage, but we only have 7 NSS cars, so you'll still be treated as royalty. I've sent you a route plan by e-mail, so keep in mobile touch and you'll hopefully intercept us.
Cheers

I have to work too Colin otherwise I would have been there. I hope you get good weather. Not that it matters because you're bound to have a great run in our area regardless :wink: :wink: :wink:

Thanks for your company on today's run. Sorry we could only join you from the Cairn o' Mount to lunch at Dinnet. Retirement is not all it's cracked up to be.....so many things to do, so little time!

Hope to catch up with you all again.

Sorry I couldn't make the run - but I'm still in the mountains in Colorado.

Well... I did belated check the road was open .. got to the top and turned around .. 'twas I in the Silver 4x4 tank :oops: :oops: who came back down to declare the road open! :lol: .. then followed you North for a trip somewhere else.

Glad it worked well .. managed to get my brakes properly bedded in by free wheeling down the CoM of the way back (engine running so in control..).. yet to find a car that cannot fade it's brakes if driven back down that hill going East.

I thought I recognised the face, Malcolm, before we all dashed off - thanks for that bit of support.

Turning up in a 4x4 certainly confused me - if you'd been in the 5 you'd have been welcomed like a long-lost brother rather than a slightly barmy member of the public!

And I spotted you in the M-B just as we were leaving the CoM car park. Thought you were joining us for lunch when you followed us down the road!

Yes, Colin, indeed a very nice car. Can't help thinking the steering wheel is a bit cluttered now, though!

You think so? I was thinking I had just the right number of cruise control buttons!
