As there is only a week to go, I wanted to give some directions to the Legion in Turriff for those who haven't been there yet.

LEGION MAP

When approaching Turriff you will come past a garage on the left then up the hill past the Swimming Pool to the Roundabout at the top (Tesco sign next to it) turn right at the roundabout and ride along until the road turns sharply left (its a crossroads but the main road goes to the left) at that point the Legion is on your right hand side on the corner so turn right there (into Schoolhill) and their car park is directly behind the building with the entrance just down from the turning.

I will be hanging around the Vale in Fyvie most of the afternoon on Friday so if you wanted to pop into their car park before heading to Turriff I can see you there.

If all those booked into the Legion could also give them a call sometime over the next few days to make sure of your room, their contact details are here. I have already told them and the rooms are booked but it would be good if those who haven't already spoken to them to give them a bell just to confirm your room.

CONTACT DETAILS

3 Single Rooms
Damien McDonald
Scott McLeod
Roy Gartside

5 Double Rooms
Rob & Nikki Dunbavin
Dave & Ros
Colin Lowry (single occupancy)
Mark (single occupancy)
John Bell (single occupancy)

1 Twin Room
Tim (at least one single suppliment !)



Once you get to the Legion and get settled in, I have arranged a taxi/mini bus to collect you all so you can come to Fyvie to meet up in the Vale for something to eat (if you want) in the evening and there will be the same taxi to take you back there later in the evening.

On the Saturday morning there will be another bus collecting us all from Turriff and Fyvie to go to Lochter for those that are coming and then will drop us all off again after. That bus is due to pick up at 8.15am at Turriff.

There was supposed to be a Treasure Hunt Saturday afternoon but as Kenny has pulled out its a free afternoon to have a look around and please yourself or I can suggest a mini ride out.

Again Saturday night, transport to and from the Vale is provided.

Sunday we will go over to Corgarff Castle, thos wanting to go in will be paid for, then a quick stop for lunch nearby before heading back to Fyvie (round trip about 130 miles) where we can all ride in together to the Homecoming Festival Gala at Fyvie Castle where we can park next to the Castle (I have pucks for the gravel!)

Again Sunday night the transport will be provided.

Think thats about it, hope everyone is ok with it.

booked

Just confirmed RBL Turriff

Russ when I talked to the receptionist she seemed vague on the duties of the concierge, would you just check that he will be on hand to unpack my panniers, and if he could add a little radox muscle smooth to the bath that would be marvellous

thanks everso

I thought that was the type of duties that you carried out for Damien on your travels, you're getting above your station if you want your own man now :-0)

To mr mcmuck

My duties to dames (only his closet sorry closest pals calls him that) involve a more hands on approach, the concierge being of paid employ could'nt possibly rise to the occasion.
Perhaps after a few years under my tuteledge he may gain the professional touch I have acquired

Looks a little wet on Friday for the ride up. But all can change in 4 days.

For those McBASH Virgins, just a little info where we meet to start with.

When you get into Fyvie on the main road there are a few little signs and a big banner advising where to meet, if you turn right off the main road (car park and recycling bins on the corner) then the Vale Hotel is immediately on your right past that car park, so just park in the car park at the front. I'll be there Friday afternoon (after my Blackbird gets its MOT at 2.00pm, I nearly forgot!) so thats where we initially meet up.

Those in the Legion can go up there, but if you could call in past the Vale before so I know who's here (mother hen mode!) then once you get settled in the Legion, I will arrange for the taxis to pick you up to come back to the Vale to meet everyone else and if you want a bar meal you can get it there too.

To save the taxis making multiple runs, could you guys in the Legion (11 of you at the moment) all come back in the taxis together, saves me money as well !!

Signs went up tonight but it was a bit dark !

:-0)

Will call in to the Vale on the way through to the Legion Russ.

Looking forward to doing the trip with some company this time and hopefully arriving with a full compliment of cylinders.
