Excellent run on Saturday.  Thanks to Eileen & Richard for your hospitality, once again.  Sorry if we were impolite in departing quietly, but didn't want to disturb the flow.

Great run, sorry that we didn't stay on the for evening, but I was feeling way to tied and was glad to get home.Sarah

Thanks to the run organisers and to Richard and Eileen for their superb hospitality. Another great Saturday night in the Callander tent.Good to meet new members and our friends from Yorkshire. Glad that Ian enjoyed his blue label Becks, don't think that the next ones will have any blue colour on the label though.

Enjoyable weekend in Callander once again starting with a great scenic topdown run followed by a fine haggis at the Grouse experience and concluding with an entertaining evening.
Thanks as ever to Eileen and Richard for their hospitality. Thanks to Maria for arranging the entertainment and to Ian Scott and Ian Anderson for keeping us entertained throughout the evening.Good to see that Ian took it so seriously that he stayed on the alcohol free lager to make sure he was able to perform at his best....dont think Blue is Ian's favourite colour

Another great party in the tent.    Thanks to Richard and Eileen for all the work they put in once again, it was very much appreciated.  Last years Callander weekend was our first club event so thats our first year in.  Thanks must go to Ian and Chic as the club just keeps going from strength to strength.

.......and I take it I'll never hear the end of the blue lager....?

Thanks for another well organised weekend, especially to the entertainers and Richard & Eileen. I hope the dog didn't suffer for all the sausages it got sneaked under the table ;-)

Sorry we couldn`t be with you all on this run. Sounds like you all had a great time. Sorry to hear that Ian has had to lay off the bevvy for a wee while. Perhaps someone will invent an alcoholic ice cream just for him. See you all soon.
Wattie & Janet.

Thank you to everyone who helped make last weekend wonderful!  To Eileen and Richard (and Cara) for their amazing hospitality; to Ian Ness for planning and leading the Saturday run and to everyone who attended the day and evening event.  We had a great time!  And the live entertainment at the end of the evening was terrific.
Thank you all so much!
Looking forward to next year!
From Sue, Neill and Lindy
