MINI-REUNION 2016 - Report of Proceedings
Where: Balloch, Scotland.
When: Weekend 9-11 September 2016.
The programme for the mini reunion was very simple, and consisted of two events – an ice breaker/PU on the Friday night, followed by an informal dinner on the Saturday night. As usual however, the reunion consisted of a myriad of differing experiences.
The reunion started for me with the arrival of Wally and Wilma Clelland for dinner on Thursday 8th, and didn't end until Phil and Shirley Mair popped in to say their farewells, eight days later. Wally and Wilma had been on the road around the Highlands of Scotland for weeks, and had even taken in the beautiful North Coast 500, Scotland's Route 66, as it is becoming known.
Like Ron and Angela Clarke, Phil and Shirley had decided to make a holiday of the reunion by basing themselves in the area for a week or so, in order to take in all that the surrounding Loch Lomond and Trossachs National Park, and areas wider afield, could offer.
Other members had to restrict their appearance, like Jim Watt and his wife Sue, who could only join us for the Friday afternoon; Bob and Angela Crow, who could only be with us on the Friday evening, and Steve Barker and Debbie, who were with us only for the dinner on Saturday night………
