Highland Mini Meet

Hi Folks

Angus and I have just got our heads together to set a date for Highland Mini Meet, and have decided on weekend beginning Friday 13th May.

All welcome - very informal just a few tents pitched at Cannich Campsite and probably a ride out on the Saturday. We haven't fine tuned the details yet but if we have reasonable numbers we will have a small buffet in the pub - same as last year.(but hopefully without the rain!).

Chizz

Bruce and Angus

Hi Chizz, I would love to come along, Bilge will be resplendent in her new paintwork (about to be done) and the engine / gearbox rebuild has released 65 horses of the apocalypse from her bowels that are just waiting to be unleashed on a trip somewhere - anywhere ! but afraid I doubt I will make it as I have already booked a weekend away in Wales two weeks later - and at the moment finances won't stretch to both do's at the moment with other stuff going on - but If some pennies drop on my lap in the meantime I will try to pop along. Be ok to turn up on the day I suppose. The last one was an excellent do so it would be a shame to miss out. Jake.

Been waiting for notification for this mini event. The date has been noted, it may be a case of joining you on the Saturday, this having to work is a total pain in the a@@ but hey ho needs must.
We have 1 bike ready to go the other is in a multitude of bits & pieces but when it gets rebuilt fingers crossed it wont need a push start.
If all else fails we will be there for the food and maybe a few s.

Liz n Mike

Highland Mini Meet

Thanks for the early replies -

It would be good to meet with you Ted - I have read many of your posts over the last few years - I am sure you have lots of tales to tell.

Hi Palamie (Kev) - hope to see you there - you are virtually on our doorstep !

Rob - it would be great to see you again - promise not to take you to Ullapool in the pouring rain this time!

Rory - I knew you would not miss the chance of a night (or two ) in the pub

Dougie - I am sure Angus can guarantee the venison supply!

Jake - Hope you get lucky with some money we would love to see you up here again - hows the back?

Liz and Mike - Look forward to seeing you again - especially once you have that starter switch sorted.

Put the word out folks - the more the merrier

Chiizz (Bruce)
