Some photographs of the Inverary Run, as usual Owen is still smiling despite the weather and tight squeeze on the ferry!
Good turn out for the first run of the year, 18 members turned up at Girvan and the photograph taken at Willie McColm’s memorial chair shows the ones who made it to Portpatrick. Weather on the way back turned out to be more than the small precipitation that was expected and we got a real soaking. General views taken at Girvan was that it would be better to go back to Monkton petrol garage for the meeting point. I would welcome members thoughts/views/comments on this point!!
The following is a list of events planned for the summer of 2018. All members are welcome to come and enjoy these events. Runs usually start at either the Layby (Truck Stop) between Dobbies Garden Centre and Ayr Cattle Market, Whitefordhill on the A70, or next to Cumnock Bus Station, or lay-bys just south of Girvan and Dalmellington Sundays, – unless stated otherwise. Check your Club Website/Facebook/Newsletter for updates and late additions.
Please note runs can be amended to suit weather conditions etc at short notice.
