Well that’s our Christmas meal over for another year, 25 folk had a great time at the Old Cross Inn in Rattray. One lucky member won the £50 first prize in the draw, with other prizes too for a few more folk. Thanks to the band provided by the Old Cross for a great end to the night, with lots of folk dancing to settle their turkey, and to all the staff there who cooked and served for us.

On Tuesday, at the invitation of the proprietors, Ken and Kathy Kincaid, some club members visited The Valhalla Biker’s Lodge at Kirkmichael with a view to assessing its suitability for a future club event.
The Lodge offers ensuite log cabin and dormitory accommodation for motorcyclists touring the Scottish Highlands. Run by bikers, for bikers and is a perfect base from which to explore Scotland’s rich history and stunning scenery.
Open Wednesday to Sunday all year round, they have secure bike parking, a washdown area and workshop facilities, plus free Wi-Fi, a well-stocked bar, café and restaurant. There’s even a BBQ for use by guests.
We were very impressed by the facility and the friendly welcome from Ken and Kathy and hope to make use of the Lodge, even if only for a friendly place to meet up for summer social events
