Hi to all,what can you say,great roads,good company,excellant runs.I enjoyed myself playing catch from Blairgowrie on saturday(guy in Feista Xr2I and Escort Cosworth would bot agree as we swopped places en route Dinnet)Sunday sun shining again,this time jen and jake (our yorkie) was with me,We had hot tea and a nice fried egg roll while we waited for the gang to arrive.the run around Fife was fab,the lunch better,although Gavin got redder with his whiskey and turnip soup !!As the roast beef was a bit fatty I put  in a request to the waitress for a "Doggy Bag" for Jake who really enjoyed his lunch.We left the others to go thier own way at Piscottie and headed home. A big thank you to all who arranged,stewarded the run,here's to the next one.thanks again
