The Road to the Gathering
Sun 23rd Sep 2007
organised by Tayside Scotland

Car Count : 5
 
[ show pre-run info ]

Not to be downcast by the low numbers registered for the Road to the Gathering run, our hardy members Malc, Dave and Tom (plus passengers) decided they wanted to fly the NSS flag and head up to the Glenshee event in a convoy. A brisk run ensued in the sunshine resulting in them arriving almost first at the Spittal of Glenshee, where they were joined by the other NSS attendees arriving from all points north (John and Andy) and West (Colin), the latter travelling along the Moulin Road realising this was definitely going to be part of his next run.

Being stuck at the back of the car park at the hotel had its downside, but it did result in some of us (ahem!) appearing in a Press and Journal photo.

With Colin and a Central member tagging along for the ride, another excellent stretch down back to Dundee via Alyth in the sunshine ensured a memorable end to the day.

Accounts and photos of the Gathering itself are plentiful elsewhere, but thanks to Malc for organising the run itself and to Douglas whose idea the whole event was; the location was very convenient for the NSS members and all feedback has been really positive.

Ideas for next year's event are already being discussed!

Great day out and excellent meal, just what I was looking for when joining this club.
Let's have more runs!
