Just a pity the weather was not a little better, but on the whole a good day out, excellent menu and the "treasure hunt" added to the day.

Well done Phil !

By the time I got back to Largs the rain was really heavy.  It had been like that from 11:00am so we were quite fortunate.

Well done Phil for organising a great run.  Hope you all had a lovely lunch and managed to get the second part dry, if not a little "fresh" with the roof down.

As first timers on a club run we had a great day out, thanks to Phil for all the hard work and thanks to all of you for making us so welcome. It certainly was a bracing day for a run with the top down!

Great run, thanks Phil and all who helped. Who was in charge of the weather though eh?

I've uploaded some pictures, I'll try linking to one here, but I'll post some links on the forum.

See you at the next one.
