Once again our friends from the Tyne Tees Area have challenged us to another game of (non compulsory) rounders at Lindisfarne Island. This is a wonderful opportunity to meet up with our English friends (and beat them again?) and enjoy all the marvels of this interesting island with all the fun and banter that goes hand in hand with this ever popular event. Plus we also have the chance to drive on some fantastic border roads.

The 10:00 departure from Tesco Eskbank will give us a leisurely run down to Lindisfarne. Remember that once we're in the car park you will need to purchase a parking ticket for the day.
Flags and banners flying for our grand entrance to Lindisfarne
Picnic (Bring your own picnic food and folding chairs)
There is a fast food van on the site or visit an island pub - it is up to you
Rounders - Scotland v England (not compulsory)
The causeway will be open from 10:45 to 18:10 on this date so it will give us plenty of time to have a picnic and rounders bash afterwards.

Thanks to Jim & Drew for leading the runs and Maria & Ali for their narrative to keep us right and informed of road traffic. Well done \"the Team\" for doing their best - not to be this year though and their star player drove off in a Peugout! Nice to see such a large turn out this year.

Well done to all for organising the day. Bailey was ok on way home with one pit stop. Roads very wet near home. Ate his dinner and back to normal.

Thanks to TYNE TEES for allowing us to join their convoy up the A1 to Lindisfarne.
Thanks to Dave for giving me a spare beefburger & Ali for the sausage. A special thanks to Ali for surprising me by changing the colour of the mascot I won in the raffle at Ullapool 2 years ago with a colour coordinated one of our new Zeal RED car! Much appreciated.
Thanks to Jim & Drew for organizing the day. We both had a great time.
