Lake of Menteith 3 March 2018

Post by Dickculpin » Thu Mar 01, 2018 11:17 am

VERY IMPORTANT

I am sorry to advise this event has been cancelled because of the terrible weather and road conditions. I will be phoning everyone today and Quint is putting something on their Facebook page. The intention is to rearrange and I will come back to all with possible dates. I will be talking to the Rob Roy and The Forth Inn about rebates of deposits etc given that we will of course be using them again.

Can I ask that you spread the word to anyone who you know is scheduled to travel. If it helps Lomond is frozen and the road to Balmaha is closed.

My apologies to you all but one accident trying to get there would have been one too many.

Go easy

Dick

Sad to say but unavoidable in the circumstances Dick. The upside is that mine and Chris Parry's rheumatism wont be aggravated by 8 hours at minus 8 in a boat. Us oldies have to consider these things mate! Thanks for your efforts, hope the stress has abated now that the decision has been taken :roll:

Thanks to you all for being understanding. I am talking to Quint about a new date and we may be looking at Thursday 26 April when I hope it will be tropical. I need to confirm this so that we can book 33 boats. Your collective input asap would be appreciated.

Thanks again chaps, I really appreciate it.

Cheers Dick
