Next Meet summer '08???

Any plans for a meet? How about a seaside day up here in the Costa Del Moray? Almost garenteed to have the best weather in Scotland on any day.

Re: Next Meet summer '08???

Sorry for the lateness getting back, been fairly busy with computers and dogs lately.

Anyway, regarding the next meet, i am fully open to suggestions and routes, also, i am always interested to hear feedback into what kind of meet's you want. Pub lunch/drink (non alcaholic), Run out, static etc. Please be open about what you want as this makes it easier for me to decide what to do next

Re: Next Meet summer '08???

not settled on a date yet, how does early July sound?

So, any ideas on what type of meet you want? It is finally summer so by rights it should be a run out but i am not very good at coming up with routes.

Re: Next Meet summer '08???

Seeing as nobody else has made a suggestion I would prefer early to mid july so either the weekend 5-6/7, 12-13/7 or 19-20/7. Thats my thoughts on dates.

Re: Next Meet summer '08???

How about somewhere huntly esq? Equedistant from aberdeen to elgin?

was thinking, head up to keith, then onto Elgin before turning south to dufftown and back to huntly or something, nice circular run? (my geography is awfull).

Comments?

Re: Next Meet summer '08???

Re: Next Meet summer '08???

If memory serves me well, there's a tourist railway from Huntly to Dufftown (Via distilleries of course). the road that runs parallel is quite nice, although it's been a couple of years

p.s. Just had a look. It's the A920 and there's lots of wee twisties around the area.

Re: Next Meet summer '08???

I drove back from rockness festival through grantown-on-spey and dufftown and can vouch for that stretch of road as a great drive!

I'll try to make any meet if the date and times agree...

p.s 19-20th I can't make myself.. would preferably have it before or after.

Re: Next Meet summer '08???

Hi All

I remember first moving to moray, me and my cousin taken this route.

As i can see some are from aberdeen area and some in moray it's a good halfway marker for everyone and some good roads.

CLICK HERE for route

Re: Next Meet summer '08???

That's a big route! But very tempting. What does everyone think?
