Willie McColm Memorial Run

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!!

ARGYLL RUN TO INVERARY/DUNOON/LARGS

Great turnout for today’s run to Inverary. Weather did not disappoint with uninterrupted sunshine all day, this gave Robert Mitchell and Ken Robson plenty of time to top up the sun tan. I hope all went well with the road recovery service.
