Food

Folks

Georgie and I are up for communal food - count us in.

Don't bother with booze for us - we'll explain why when we get there.

Cryptic eh?

Hi guys

Here goes with directions, its approx 12 miles north west of Dumfries:

Arrive at Dunscore village (this is on B729), when you get to village there is one mini roundabout, from the roundabout take the road past the church.

Go for 1.5 miles then turn right (signposted Corsock)

Travel 1 mile along this road (passing over the small crossroads, do not turn off). At 1 mile turn right onto a 'no through road' (no sign, the old school house is immediately after the turning). Continue for a further half mile and Andy & Maya are the second house on the right.

If you get lost, please phone Andy on 01387 820862

GPS ref: N 55 08.818, W 003 49.813

See you all there!

Debz

Hi G

Yes, it's open to everyone, the more the merrier, just bring your tent along and join in the fun. Will you be coming Friday or Saturday and will you be partaking in communal food & booze?

Hopefully see you there.

Hi G

Evening meal on Sat is haggis or meatballs with neeps & tatties followed by cheesecake and this will cost you £3, a cooked brekkie will cost you £2 and pint bottle of lager or will cost £1.60 - all very reasonable. Just sort the money out for food when we all get there and the booze is pay as you use.

See you Saturday hopefully

Debz

Smile Great Weekend

Big thanks to Andy & Maya who allowed us all to descend on their beautiful home for the weekend. And thanks to Neil for showing us the delights of the local roads for the Saturday ride out.

Excellent food, excellent and excellent company!

It was good too see you all again and to meet new folk too!

Hope everyone got home safely.

Until the next time......


Iain & Debz
