[ show event report ]

Run Organisers...Douglas & Stevie.

DUE TO THE GOLF, THE ROADS AROUND LOCH LOMOND ARE GOING TO BE CHAOTIC ON THE MORNING OF THE RUN, THEREFORE WE HAVE DECIDED TO MOVE THE MEETING PLACE TO DUMBARTON AND CHANGE THE ROUTE TO AVOID THE A82. START TIME WILL ALSO BE CHANGED TO 10.45.

PLEASE NOTE THERE ARE MAJOR ROADWORKS ON THE M8, JUST AFTER THE KINGSTON BRIDGE, PLEASE ALLOW A LITTLE EXTRA TIME FOR THIS.

Meeting at McDonald's / St James Retail Park Glasgow Rd,
Dumbarton. G82 1RB
10:30 FOR 10:45.


Directions to St James Retail Park...

M8 to Erskine Bridge is easiest route as it saves all the traffic lights and cameras.

Once over the Erskine Bridge and after passing Esso Garage and Ford Dealer take left hand filter lane and at traffic lights (opposite Vauxhall Garage) turn left onto Glasgow Road, signposted A814 Dumbarton Town Centre, continue along Glasgow road for 1.4 miles, St James Retail Park and Mc Donalds is on the right.


Route will be Dumbarton via Helensburgh to Kilfinan Hotel for Lunch, Then to Hunters Quay Dunoon, where we will take the Western Ferry to Gourock. Run will end at Port Glasgow's Newark Castle (108 miles total)
Ferry ticket costs:-
Car & Driver 6.45.
Car & Driver & Passenger 8.20.

Steve and Doug please take a collective bow for organising todays run .Great roads and sunshine plus a pleasant lunch with likeminded owners .Thanks for our 30th.anniversary mention and nice to spend it with friends. Did anyone else find the busload  on the ferry from the cruiseship a bit scary -reminded me of the cast from Michael Jackson's Thrller video ! They were probably just getting to the hungry stage at not having had a 6 course ship meal for 6 hours .
Is anyone going to the 50 years of Scottish motorsport/Ecurie Ecosse event at Knockhill next weekend ?

Thanks to douglas and stevie for this run, emma really enjoyed her first run so hopefully might be coaxed into doing more in the future. And does anyone have any idea what to do with a litre of mouthwash?

Gavin re your mouthwash - you could always sell it on ebay or put it back into another raffle ! - pleased Emma enjoyed her first run.

19th Jul 2006 14:35 :: Gordon & Janice
That particular brand and quantity of mouthwash would normally sell for about 40 pounds at trade price, retails around 70-80.

19th Jul 2006 16:37 :: Gavin and Emma
Thanks for the suggestions guys, don\'t why that last message posted itself three times, my computer\'s mental!

19th Jul 2006 19:53 :: ronnie
After reading about the truth re the mouthwash I'm kinda regretting putting it back in the raffle. Meant to also say that I found the meal a wee bit disappointing. The quality was fine but the quantity was sparse to say the least (don't want to moan though)
