Lets hope its a annual event.

What a fantastic gathering,  it was good to meet yet more new members, old friends and especially our friends in the north. The venue was ideal,the roads and scenery great.
Many thanks to Dot and Chas for the run, to Douglas and all the co-ordinators for their hard work and to Koolchef for leading our wee run from Red Deer.

Great day out - thanks to Dot and Chas for all their work in producing the detailed route and chosing such excellent roads. Also thanks to Douglas and the other AC's for their organisation

We'd like to thank everyone involved in today .... whether you be from Central, the North (N), North (NE) or North (S) :-D  Can't believe that the weather held out as well as it did!  The Spittal of Glenshee hotel did us proud with the food .... we were among the last to get served, but there was still loads and for the money it was a bit of a bargain. 

What a great way to remember Stevie!!!!!

Thanks to everyone who turned up, had fun and donated a gift for the raffle.Even though I only met Stevie a couple of times and didn't know his as well as some others did, I'm sure you would agree that he would have been in his element today.
