Big thanks to everyone that attended and donated a prize to the 70/80s night on Saturday night at number 31 Wellmeadow Blairgowrie. We raised £161 on the raffle and some big donations went into the Maggie centre collection tin. The number 31 management and staff were stars and we will get the raffle money across to Susan for a handover to Maggies with our best wishes. Hope you all had a good night and George managed to play a tune that you enjoyed from your youth.
Remember our Christmas meal is on 9th Dec – get in touch if you want to come and haven’t told me already
Well dark nights will soon be with us and as usual we’re meeting every two weeks or so from the end of October, now on the FIRST and THIRD Tuesday of the month through to the end of March.
Join us on (almost) St Andrews day, Saturday 26th November at No.31 Wellmeadow Blairgowrie.
Night of 70/80’s music with George Muir as your DJ. So you know it’s going to be good…
Drop in before 7 & Grab a meal at the bar.
We will kick off around 7-30 with the music. “Tunes from his college days”.
Open door so everyone’s welcome.
We just want to see everyone enjoy a night out.
And for those more local, you can just stroll home singing to the old favourites still playing in your head.
We also have George Forrest’s Chairman’s Quiz night on Tuesday the 15th November when George will test our knowledge of nearly everything and may give away some answers as questions like last time eh George? 8.30 start at No 31 and there will be prizes.
ALSO for your info but not a club event – The Alyth Pipe Band are holding a Ceilidh Dance on Saturday 29th OCTOBER in Alyth, 7.30 start. £8 for adults and a fiver for kids, includes a plate of soup or stovies too. Bring your own drink as none will be on sale in the hall.
AND remember our Christmas Club meal on Fri 9th DEC at the Dalmore Inn Blairgowrie, 7.30. I have about a dozen folk hoping to make it so far but plenty room for more.
Watch out for crud and leaves if you’re out on the bike now and probably salt on the hill roads… YUK
and some pics from our recent Ullapool trip
The current plan is to leave on Friday 16th Sept, stay Fri night in Ullapool, then on Saturday have a run to Thurso via Durness, and back a different way, and have a meal and a few beers back in Ullapool on the Saturday night, home Sunday 18th. The campsite is still open in Ullapool for anyone interested in that. Otherwise book your own accomodation or get in touch as I’ll be looking for B&B too. Expect to pay around £40 a night incl breakfast. And petrol money for a 600/700mile weekend! And we want sunshine – please pray or whatever you do……but the midgies won’t be too bad now ha ha
Our Maggie’s Run presentation will be on Tues 5th July, at 7.30pm sharp at the Maggie’s Centre in Dundee. Come along and we’ll hand over the cheque, over £2200!
Meet at No31 at 7pm and we can have a run down together, or meet us there.
We’ve decided to decide on the night folks! Turn up before 7 and we’ll probably go wherever the best weather is, be it east or west, for a wee run. 7pm leave no31. Or not if it’s wet!
Yes it’s our next chippy run on Tues 28th. Leave from No31 in the Wellmeadow as usual at 7pm.
Also our Maggie’s Run presentation will be on Tues 5th July, at 7.30pm sharp at the Maggie’s Centre in Dundee. Come along and we’ll hand over the cheque, over £2000!
There’s a proposed ride to Moffat on Sunday, tomorrow, leaving Blairgowrie 10 am. Meet at No 31 . Back via Linlithgow. All welcome to come along. Turn off at Edin ski slope towards west Linton then across to Peebles, Moffat road and down to Moffat.
Sorry for the short notice but i’ve been in Skye this week so only found out today. Having done 500miles and 3 hills since wednesday I’m having a day off tomorrow! Weather looks good though and watch out for the speed camera vans. I passed one near Crianlarich this morning and suspect unmarked cars were out too. Hundreds of bikes on the roads heading west and north, but none going south and east like me!.
Remember Chippy Run this Tuesday
Well wasn’t it a fantastic day for a run ! Great turnout of about 150 folk, and the new route was a cracker! Blair to Kirrie, Forfar, Montrose , then Stonehaven and up to Banchory for the lunch stop. Then along Deeside and back over Glenshee. Charlie had organised loads of food for everyone who came back to the Red House, where we had the Prize Draw and the raffle.
Looks like the total raised will be over £2000 so thanks to everyone who came along on the day and all our helpers, friends and those who donated prizes. Thanks also to the Red House Hotel Coupar Angus for hosting the start and finish.
And we made the front page in the Blairgowrie Advertiser with a group picture under the banner, and a good write-up about the Maggie’s, so thanks to Clare of the Blairie too for that.
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.
