    Ok you lot, voting time !

    This is a description of all the Activities we can choose from for the Saturday Morning (for those wanting to take part it's ?40, less than half the actual cost!).

    So to start with I have listed everything below, once there is an idea of whats getting the votes, we will have to go with the 4 most popular so get your votes in now !!


    Each activity is both exiting and fun, by splitting into groups of six people everyone is actively participating in the activities rather than wasting too much time spectating.
    Each team chooses a "fun name" whilst individuals have the chance to go for glory emphasis is put on winning the highly acclaimed team prize. Individual certificates are also given out for individual winners!

    Karting on Lochterstone (outdoor)
    Our new 1km Tarmac Racetrack. Test your skills with our Sodi Karts on Lochterstone, a replica of the Silverstone racetrack. Guaranteed fun!

    Zip Slide (for groups of 10ppl +)

    Clay pigeon shooting
    A sporting set up three different birds (clays). The two experienced instructors make quick judgements on the ability of each shooter and endeavour to get all shooters to hit as many birds as possible with their expert instruction.
    The lightweight 28 gauge shotguns used have little or no recoil making them suitable for all ages.

    4x4 Off road driving / Mule blindfold challenge
    An off road course with a difference. Choose a teammate to act as your ?sat-nav? to tackle the awaiting obstacle course. (no driving licence required).

    Field Archery
    At ranges up to fifty metres with a bit of instruction this deceptive sport will soon have you addicted.
    With a total of 50 points to be won for each budding "Robin Hood" every arrow must count.

    Digger driving
    Amaze yourself operating a 5.5 tonne full slew excavator filling barrels of water under expert guidance. An activity that is most often won by the ladies as their gentle operation of the digger results in the least amount of water being spilled. A great team game with lots of audience participation.

    Segway Challenge
    A motorized scooter slalom challenge ? fantastic fun on 2 wheels

    Rifle target shooting (outdoors / indoors)
    Can be linked to helium balloon shooting - very visual!
    A sport that involves being taught how to control your breathing to get the telescopic sight on the bull?s eye and a maximum score.
    Not so spectacular as the clay shooting but every bit as important to your team score.

    Target Golf
    This version of target golf levels out the good golfers from the less gifted.
    Expert instruction on all aspects from grip to stance soon has you hitting the targets.

    Laser Sport
    Great fun any day-Brilliant on a rainy day. Indoors this remarkably realistic shooting game on a giant 20 foot screen is fantastic fun.
    Highly amusing, ducks, varmints, pheasants, doves & quail all do their best to avoid the intrepid hunter.

    Either vote above or just post your preferences here

    Right people I have just ordered a bus to take us from Turriff (picking up at the Legion) to Fyvie (picking up at the Vale) and then onto Locher and then back again.

    No extra cost involved (to you anyway!!) thought it would save me missing the turning again !

    I didn't say anything but you see whats with the 4x4 Challenge above !!

    Practice !

    I was at Lochter today with a work jolly !
    Had a shot at the Karting, Clays, Segway and blind 4x4. Best again was the karting especially now as they have enlarged the track so its even longer !
    Hopefully the weather will be kind to us as it was today for the McBASH coz you can truly fling those karts around the new track !

    Anyway, still looking for votes !!

    GUys, I was speaking to Lochter and the sooner we can book our activities the more chance we have of getting the ones we want.

    So I have told them we will let them know by the end of June so we can get the ones we want before anyone else (they had to change a couple last year for the same reason), so if you can all put your votes in the next few weeks I will tell them what we want.

    OK Activites sorted !

    Had to 'negotiate' with Lochter because they thought we were all nutters who wanted to shoot things (could be right)!

    So the activites this year are:

    Field Archery

    Sharpen your arrows people !!
