    How did you get on with the ranger kiltedpict? I've been raking about looking for a spot. Went up Bennachie from the Rowantree car park this time and looks promising above the forestry plantations but really looking for a mixed woodland. Had a rake about pitfichie tonight that looks a bit more promising. Spotted a nice looking wood at Lyne of Skene but no where unobtrusive to leave car without creating suspicion so will keeplooking. Do you guys all have your little patches that you have owners permision on.

    Hey Windy,

    Your more than welcome to come along mate although this September meet will be a quite one due to a few of the regulars un able to make it.

    The haggis supper has become a tradition but we end up having way more than we need lol, but your welcome to bring some black pud :).

    I will sort you out some directions asap.

    The communal meal is usually haggis but for the past couple we have also had stew on another night.

    Craig - do you have the list of what we need and we can put our names to the items?
