Bothy Weekend

There was a good turnout for the bothy working party and social weekend. Around 14 members in total attended. Quite a bit of maintenance was done on the Saturday followed by a barbecue that was ended prematurely by a couple of downpours.
Dave H turned up on Saturday night after pulling out of the Mille Alba after completing 350k.
Club member Dave Fawcett was one of only 3 riders to finish the event which was made even more difficult by some windy and rainy conditions

Wednesday was a damp evening and only 2 of us turned up for the pub run.
Gus and I (Dave H) headed out the main road by Kingsmuir, but were diverted around by Craichie and Bowriefauld due to an accident on the road to Letham. Went to the Commercial Inn and returned home in light rain the usual way as the road was now re opened.
