OK here is the plan then a meet at Pitlochry Smile yeaha new ground for you Smile


I know it is just over a year away but boy they come round fast and you all need to book time off etc Smile


Dates ; Thursday 5th Nov 2009 for 4 nights ie 5/6/7/8/ nov leaving as usaul Monday before 12 Smile is that ok ??? If not tough its the only dates that can be done. I have put a provisional booking but as usual to confirm i will have to pay for it :-(


It will be 50.00 a head again keeping it to 45 folks


Rooms !!!!!! well this may a bone of contention but it is slightly different to Rowardennan in that there are a lot less private rooms, sorry but thats the way it is :-( The family room is gone :-( and so is the only sole double one sadly :-( so that leaves dorms. The rooms are not huge, in that lots of beds in each Smile 3 x 4bedded ones and 3 x 6 bedded ones 2 x 8 bedded as well i will at present keep it to male and female etc as usual but if say 2 couple want a four bedded room, fine as long as i know to allocate it that way Smile otherwise its guys with guys and gals with gals. The rooms here are en-suite, may be good or bad !!!!!!!! also a couple of loos outwith rooms and a couple of seperate showers as well Smile


There are 2 x lounges here and a wonderful dining room with stunning views over the town Smile good kitchen , and its warm Smile no tank gas but mains.


There is a main line rail station and its on the main bus routes north so getting here is easy if you have no car. Oh cars !!!!!! parking :-( thats another thing there are only spaces for 10 cars here, but its ok to dump your kit off here and then just park in the street Smile so not really a major issue.

To make it financialy viable (and as low as possible for you) 45 are needed so i am going to stick to that number ok :-( I have names already and will add these at the end, just let me know if you are on that and do NOT want to attend please.

Also if you wanna attend let me know either here or PM

I will also be looking, again, for payments asap please as i will again pay for the booking soon.


Whats in Pitlochry ??? well briefly, 2 x distileries, slamon ladder, power station dam,loch Faskaly,loch tummel, loch tay, aberfeldy area, and really so so so much, the famous soldiers leap at killikrankie a couple of miles away. Ben y Vrakie is the main lump here for walking/climbing and so so many other wlaks through woods etc Smile and yes there is a waterfall at the black spout Smile

There are a few pubs/ eating places/ shops !!! yes a big co-op and lots of whisky/wool/outdoor shops etc Smile and we are only a short walk into town as well Smile train station 5 min walk i will collect folks if they are coming by train Smile or bus as well.

Getting here by car is a piece of cake straight up the A9 Smile




So to sum up;

5/6/7/8th November 2009, at Pitlochry 50.00 a head, as usual this is only for the hostel, food etc etc bring your own.


So I reckon thats it really for now Smile another chapter begins



so get booking with me or at least asking if you can attend Smile

Poor Dave - people treat him like a bank! Here's hoping the credit crunch doesn't affect him like it did the banks...

Oops, that was more directed at those who don't pay until the last moment, Jeanie - your question only reminded me of that, it didn't put you in the same category as far as I'm concerned...

Jeanie




That would have been fine Smile


In fact a 15.00 deposit is ok from folks for now and full payment by end of March, if thats fine, I know its x-mass, credit crunch etc it hits me too, but at least i have managed to persuade my bosses that payment will be made asap so they are letting me pay 50% just now to hold the booking, nice of them eh !!!!!!


Also I will do 2 lists, those who have paid, full or deposit, and them that have NOT paid Smile cruel but it will be a lot easier and saves the vultures waiting Smile
