Default Update

We're in the process of finalising the programme and hope to publish that soon - but why wait until then to book your place!!

We have a fantastic hotel in the great little town of Kelso amidst wonderful countryside. Its one not to be missed.

What great news, congratulations to you both. I hope you're well, and wish you the very best.
If you can't make it in person this year do share some pictures when our newest member makes their debut

Thank you very much for your kind words David and Nick. 💛

No pictures. We haven't found any postable 4 rings on the ultrasound scans yet 😁

The meet sounds to be a lovely one!
Hopefully you'll all enjoy the great event!!

My congratulations too. What great news! Perhaps a bit drastic to provide an excuse for missing the Annual Meet, but it’s probably the best excuse we’ve heard so far

Default 2020/2022 meet update!!!

Well, what happened to the last 2 years!

Given that the event restrictions in Scotland have now been relaxed and the Ednam House Hotel is still up and running and hasn't closed down as a result of Covid/Staffing issues, we can now announce that the Meet is now back on for the first weekend of June 2022 - 3rd/4th June. The hotel has honoured and saved the bookings as made so there is no need to re-book for those who have done so already. Whilst they were a bit iffy over deposit refunds when i raised the issue in 2020, we hope that this can be dealt with if it arises.

We are aware of the fact that this weekend has now been designated as the Queen's Platinum Jubilee holiday so she is occupied elsewhere and wont be attending but if everyone can confirm their attendance or sign-up if a new member or find themselves with nothing sensible to do that weekend, then please do so on the attendance thread.
Really looking forward to seeing you all (or anyone tbh ) this year.

Davids8, TinTin and BrianG

Oh no! I have a much-postponed family wedding.

We would like to attend, but before I call the hotel to try for a room, does anyone have a reservation they'd like to pass on?

EDIT: spoken with Jim and will take over his booking.

Have also just spoken with Mackies and got booked in for a gearbox service on the Wednesday before the meet
