The Three P?s...
PICNIC & PUTTING and PORTPATRICK.
Run Organisers Shaun & Mary McCrindle.

Come along on 7th August and join us on what will hopefully be a sunny Sunday for a leisurely drive down the beautiful Ayrshire coastline through Ballantrae into Dumfries & Galloway to the picturesque fishing village of Portpatrick.

The plan is to have a picnic, with every car bringing their own choice of lunch, disposable BBQ's will be provided. After Lunch a game of putting for those wishing to participate.
For those not wishing to either play or watch the spectacle of the inaugural MX5 Scotland ?Putting Championship? you can always take in the excellent RNLI Lifeboat Station before we head inland for our journey back to Ayr, ending at Dobies Garden Centre at the Junction of the A77/A70.

A meeting point for East and West Central members will be arranged prior to arriving at Burns Cottage Car Park.

First home I think, so I'll get in first. Congratulations to Shaun for all his hard work in organising a superb run.
The Ayrshire coastline was beautiful in the sunshine and Portpatrick was an ideal destination.
Sorry we missed the putting championship but we wanted to explore a bit instead.

Well done Shaun in organising your first Run, first of many I hope. A slightly different kind of day than normal, and one which was a total success, blessed by glorious weather, you just can't ask for more.
Big thanks to Mary for helping both on the day and with the organising.

Paul & I had a fab day!
I've got 2 pink arms and a bit of a pink neck! (suncream was in the boot!)
Absolutely loved the wee bendy winding roads!
Thanks Shaun & Mary for a great time & to everyone else for making it such a fab day!

Pink faced, but very happy. Thanks for organising a great day Shaun & Mary.
Well worth the 550km(what was the conversion, Shaun) round trip.
Stephannie loved it and is looking forward to another.  Tom & stephannie.

Thanks Shaun & Mary .We've lived in Ayrshire for 27 years and I don't think I have seen the coast looking as splendid. 200 miles from house to house in sunshine with the top down all the way-ye cannie beat it. Do Mxparts. co sell designer MX sunscreen for baldies like putting supremo Davie Lodge-he was a bit pink up top by the end ? Thanks for the raffle prize and good to see that we raised ?50 for the RNLI .

Thanks to Shaun and Mary for an excellent day out - nice to see Sandy maintaining the "Paisley standards"..wins a bottle of whisky and bu....s off. Great day and great location

Thanks to everyone who came along, especially those from the east, who as Thomas pointed out had travelled exceptional distances over the day to support the run.

I would also note my thanks to Douglas for his support when organinsing my first run and for "acting" as tail end charlie. My sincere thanks for the generosity of not only those who attended the run but also the people who bought a raffle ticket at the Pub Meet on Thursday to support the Lifeboats

I really enjoyed the day, great weather and good company made for an execllent day out.

Tom, answer to your question - divide by 8 then multiply by 5 = 343.75 miles.

I agree with all comments - great run Shaun. Sorry I didn't make it back but got tied up with the friends I went to see. Chic you didn't really expect me to pick the warning triangle - did you?

8th Aug 2005 19:18 :: June
Great pictures - whoever took them!
What's wrong with a warning triangle, Sandy?

8th Aug 2005 19:32 :: lochpark
It's a bit of a standing joke with this lot, especially as you own a Mazda and they don't break down, do they ?

I have generally put one into the raffle at each run this year as well as supplying the trip to Holland with one each.

So just ignore them, you chose the right prize, don't let them wind you up.
