  • I'm going on Monsieur Laurent's (of Leeds fame) Scotland tour, we'll be in Fort Bill for the evening of the 31st & 1st.
    When/where is the Ceilidh? We're a group of 14, mostly students, so it could be fun!

    DuncanO   04/12/2012 - 11:26
  • Woop ceilidh!
    We could take my car if necessary (I might even have roofracks by then). Although if Macrae does his usual fly-drive thing, the rest of us could just pile into a 12 seater.
     
    ps who is Rik's plus one (is there gossip?! )

    Rachel   04/12/2012 - 11:05
  • I'm still definitely up for it.  And I'm a big ceilidh fan ... where else can I accidentally kick small children!!!

  • Good Job with the trip report Alby (&co).  Sounds like an amusing jaunt with some good rivers.  I am a little shocking at the names of some of the swimmers though...especially Ally, but I guess it's partially nullified by the "Boss self-rescue!". 
    P.S. Who are "na cailíní"  ?

    So here's some non-Californian paddling I've been watching whilst locked out of my office this morning: http://vimeo.com/31923661

    alex   17/10/2011 - 23:20
  • Hey ,
    I've  seriously been missing my kit since the Scotland trip and so missing lots of boating in the September storms. 
    Some of you may recall my ahem 'mild' hangover led to my leaving most of my kit in the bus in April.  I did text Ally at
    the time so hopefully it has been washed, dried and nicely folded and awaiting reunion with it's master.
    Anyway, if the rats in store haven't eaten it I would greatly appreciate someone bringing it along to the hut at the weekend so I can
    grab it.
     
    Can this be arranged?  Pretty please?  I will also happily lend a hand guiding freshers if required.
     
    Stuff I left:
    One nookie drybag with cag, deck, helmet, BA and various thermals.
    2 small black drybags with first aid kit, mini peli type case, mini red dry bag.
    various associated bits and pieces, sling, crab, etc.
    Also I think my throwline is around the stores somewhere or in joe's Jefe: yak 25m line.
     
    Quite a lot to forget I know.  I actually thought others had helped carry to the car and load up and I realised as the bus was making it's get away.
    /blush.  
    Thanking the Bosun in advance.
    I will call Ally Cott mid-week and see if he can help.
    Hope you all are well.
     
    Mark Wardle.

    Anyone planning on bringing a laptop? I've still got the RCC go-pro, it would be nice to view any footage on saturday night, but the camera itself doesn't have any play back screen.

    Rachel   17/10/2011 - 14:26
  • hmmm yes timing doesn't work out best but perhaps early morning mission if there is water, catch the second half then meet at fresher river?
    Met office:
    This weekend, it will become increasingly unsettled from the west of the UK, with a spell of wet and windy weather affecting all regions for a time. Brighter, cooler and showery conditions likely to then follow into the north and west later Sunday
    Could be potential.....
