With a miserable forecast for snow and high winds, not the night for a bike run so we’ll do it next month. Meet at 31 as usual tonight.
Tuesday night runs will start after the first Chippy Run – that’s the first Tuesday in May, the 3rd. Leave Wellmeadow sharp at 7.00
Poss destinations – Chapelhill pub on the Harrietfield road, Braemar (of course) and maybe we could decide on the next week’s destinations a week in advance. This will mean anyone on the run will be later arriving at No31.
Our 11th Maggie’s Run will be Sunday May 8th, starting at the Red House Hotel, Coupar Angus. We’re having a different route this year, so put it in your diary and come along!

The Club AGM will be on Tuesday 5th April, at No 31 as usual, for an 8.30pm start. Come along and have your say about what’s good and bad please, and what you want from the Club in future.
The Chairman, Treasurer and Secretary and two Committee members posts are up for renewal. More details of who’s interested soon and if anyone wants to volunteer please get in touch.
Yes, this year’s Maggie’s Run, the 11th, will be on Sunday May 8th, starting as usual around 10.00 from the Red House Hotel, Coupar Angus. This year we’re planning a new route, still around 120 miles, through fantastic scenery of course, and then finishing at the Red House instead of Maggie’s Centre in Dundee. More details to follow but put it in your diaries now!
Next club night will be 16th Feb
Yes, we’re all set for a grand nicht with music, songs, haggis and pipers! Don’t miss it!
Yes 2016’s almost here, just a few drams away now, so here’s a toast to next year and more runs in the sun.
First meeting in January will be the 5th – hope to see folk then. Then the 19th.
Have a good one tonight a’body
Just to let you all know the quiz was won by Bruce, with a clear two point lead over me, with George and Derek tying for third, after some good questions . A good laugh and worth turning out for, so if you weren’t there you missed a good night. Thanks to George F for setting the questions too!
Last chance for the Christmas meal now , on Friday 4th Dec, so looking forward to a good feed and good craic
Next meeting at No31 will be Tues 1st Dec then the 15th
Yes George’s promised quiz on biking stuff in general is going to be on the 17th Nov – in two weeks. We’ll see if the esteemed chairman can bamboozle us – or if someone’s a genius…. starting at 9pm and it’s not a marathon I ‘m told so you won’t miss your beauty sleep. It’s a quiz you’re supposed to do on your own, and George’ll have all the pencils and paper you need . So come along and have a go. PRIZES!!! well maybe one….
We’re going to have a Christmas night out too and Friday the 4th of December’s been mentioned as a possible date for going out for a meal in Blair like last year, only at the Dalmore this time as the meal deal’s better there than the Royal. Much later than that and it gets busy everywhere with Christmas do’s. A bevvy in Dundee was also suggested, not necessarily on the 4th, so let any of the Committee know what you prefer – soon please! or both… the Club won’t fund either of these as we agreed last year, you pay your own way. We’ll need to book something soon so don’t hang about.
There will be a Prize Draw at the main Christmas event, whatever that is, with the Club putting up a £50 first prize and maybe a couple of bottles for second / third . Every one of our 34 paid-up members will be put in the draw so you’ll have a 1 in 34 chance of winning! A whole lot better than the Lottery!
