*The times shown may change, depending on DST settings
Here we go then, first big event north scotland event of the year, the AONS Spring runout.

We will meet at Thainstone Center carpark @ 11:30 am, midday on saturday the 12th of april.

we will then leave at 12:00pm towards huntly where we will stop for a quick refuel (for us, not the cars ) where we will then drive on to dufftown then Mossat before finally driving back towards Aberdeen. Forgive the vagueness of the description as the final route will be confirmed and a map/plan will be drawn up shortly.

estimated finish time for the Runout will be at 3:00pm and we will be finishing at the Shepards Rest in westhill.

Big Thanks to Derek, also known as "Geordie Cabbie" for the route idea. Everything will be finalised shortly but I thought it would be best not to delay the event thread.

Looking foreward to meeting you all.

Re: AONS Spring runout - Aberdeenshire

Andrew,

I spoke to a delivery driver today who works the huntly area,he reports significant snow still in the area.

Still been snowing in the evenings!

The cabrach is not the rd to be out on giving the high nature of the area,and that where only 2 days away and it's still cold outdoors.

Not a one for giving up easy,but as your previous post stated,safety has to be a consideration.

I will wait to see your response

Re: AONS Spring runout - Aberdeenshire

Righto Folks, First of all, apologies to those that can't make it, I hope you can make the next one

The meet will go ahead as planned tomorrow unless the storm continues, even then though we will do the runout in stages. When we get to Huntly, depending on the conditions we will either go west towards Dufftown or south straight to mossat, but if either are too dangerous we will turn round and go back.

I am hoping all will go well but i won't allow the runout to go ahead if it is too dangerous.

Re: AONS Spring runout - Aberdeenshire

There is a small chance i might have to step out of this one, i was struck down with a pretty bad bug last night and i don't feel too bright now, throaght swollen, sore head, vomiting etc.

I am going to dose up on some drugs but if i don't feel better i am going to bow out. i at least hope to see you all off at thainstone at the very least.
