July Pub Meet and Mini Run

Thursday 4th July 2013

Following on from the success of the June pub night and mini run we decided to follow the same format this month.

With eight MX-5ís and twelve members gathering at The Pirnhall Inn at Stirling once again we all enjoyed catching up with each otherís stories whilst enjoying the discounted all you can eat buffet curry, chicken and steaks. Thanks go to Maria for providing all the vouchers for the half price meals. Once we were all fed and watered we headed for the cars full of anticipation of a fun run in the Trossachs.


The first few miles were on the M9 up to the Dunblane roundabout, then the real fun started. We took the B824 past the Sir David Stirling memorial to Doune, then the B8032 and A81 back roads to Callander. It was then onto the Invertrossachs road before joining the A821 twisting Dukes Pass road to Aberfoyle. Normally this road is full of tourist traffic, not tonight, we blasted passed one lonely little Fiat Cinqichento on the entire stretch. With mile after mile of perfect twisting, rising and falling roads made for exploiting the handling potential of the cars we all arrived in Aberfoyle with big smiles on our faces.

Following a short stop to be eaten by the midges we said our goodbyes to Alan and Bill before continuing the run back to the end point at Stirling.

It was great to have Bill and his very tidy red Mk1 along on his first run with the club. We all hope you had fun evening and weíll see you again soon.

Another excellent pub night and mini run made special by the fantastic driving roads and company.

Was it not David Stirling that founded the SAS. That must be the memorial that you passed on the Hill of Row.
