Run Organiser...Douglas

Another chance to experience the fantastic scenery and quiet roads of the Cowal Peninsular, returning on the ferry from Dunoon to Gourock. (car + driver 6.70. plus passenger 1.85, total 8.55)
I have shortened the before Lunch route this year but added a little extra when we come off the ferry by way of Loch Thom, ending at Newark Castle as before. 103 miles.

Lunch will be at the Colintraive Hotel

3 course Carvery 12.00

Tea & Coffee extra.

Any Vegetarians please let me know on the morning of the Run.

Thanks Douglas for organising and Rob for leading the second group. Sorry I made an a**e of tail-end Charlie of group one. At least I assured the hotel that you would be there at 1300.

A great day out, some of the best roads we drive during the year.
Many thanks to Douglas for organising, to Colin and Shaun for helping with group 2 and Margaret for sorting out the ferry tickets.
Best part was seeing our visitors (including David's dad and John's dad)enjoy the day so much.

Laughed all day (exept on the approach to Arrochar - but thats another story.....which we will save for a pub night) ;-x

Smashing day. Shame it was overcast but it did stay dry apart from a VERY brief shower. Eleanor and I had a great time. Thanks again Douglas and Linda for doing the donkey work as usual. Rob ....I see a future for you.  Ronnie

Great - my first run.  My dad stood in for Heather and he had a great time - reminiscing about flying over the area as a boy in 1932 in a De Havilland Puss Moth on a family day out.

Great day out, well done to Douglas, Rob and the tail end charlies.

Horrified to hear though that a number of our members "skipped" paying for lunch, you should be absolutely ashamed, you know who you are !!

12th Jun 2007 09:54 :: redhot5
yes i have to agree its a sad day when you have a day like that arranged for free and cant even pay for the food they ate(shocking)

12th Jun 2007 14:00 :: ronnie
Even worse (if you can get worse) is that I was told that the money paid by the rest of us as a gratuity to the hotel staff went to pay some of the outstanding bill. So a) the staff got cheated of a tip and b) we paid a part of their meal. How mean can you get?

12th Jun 2007 14:35 :: koolchef
I cant believe that - ppl didnt pay? I know i paid for myself and my friend paid as well. i am actually quited pee'd off with that and hopefully some action may be taken to the ppl who didnt pay. thats personally how i feel.

12th Jun 2007 14:47 :: Linda Dobbie
thanks for a really nice day even though we only did the return journey with you,nice to have met you.

12th Jun 2007 18:01 :: David Inglis
Hard to believe people would do that, especially in a club. I would hope that it was an oversight and that they'll come forward and sort it out.

13th Jun 2007 20:34 :: graham
great day out best day out with my toy going too be a member soon thanks all

13th Jun 2007 22:31 :: guy
Just came across the comments about non payment for lunch and have to say it is bang out of order.
Whoever it was should cough up.

When people don't pay do they think the hotel say ok don't bother we can afford it?

NO its the organiser that gets stung !!
