    Due to the success of the inaugural Highland Gathering in July, and knowing that some people were unable to make it, we have decided to hold a mini meet the weekend of 28th August. Again it will be a true "gathering of the clans" open to 6 forums:BigGrin:
    Details are on our website at http://www.brinherbnursery.co.uk/highland-gathering-(meet)-g.asp?page=57
    Please let me know asap if you can make it -and we're looking forward to meeting you.

    Mini meet EXTENDED

    Mini meet EXTENDED ................... you are welcome to join us :BigGrin::BigGrin:
    Are you travelling in the north of Scotland the weekend of 28th August or do you live within reach of Inverness :?:
    It's less than 2 weeks away ....... Please let me know if you can come.
    It is VERY informal and the weather forecast is looking good (ref: www.metcheck.com). We have extended the dates tot 31st because a respected member of another forum is arriving here on 30th for a few days.
    see http://www.brinherbnursery.co.uk/highland-gathering-(meet)-g.asp?pageID=57 for details. (Last time this link didn't work too well, so copy/paste if it is suspect!)
    HOPE TO SEE YOU FOR THE MINI MEET:thumb:

    Just a gentle reminder for anyone travelling in the Highlands, this week, it's not too late to join us:BigGrin:

    BTW, Big Alan, not sure if you have responded but as I did not get your first message, perhaps there is a problem:cry:

    This seems to be a bit on a single horse thread ................ but we have got some vans from other forums coming:Smile:

    "Chillaxed" for the afternoon and met with others who joined the merry band.

    Rain dampened things a bt in the PM but the BBQ being lit by Angus we all joined in and cooked up a veritable storm:RollEyes:

    Company great a good few laughs had by all we retired to a stormy night, but rested well.

    Sunday set off home, after bidding our farewells and a prommise to return:thumb:

    Well recomended to stay, the best of a "Scottish Passion"

    Thanks Hilary & Terry for your kind words. The meet still goes on although only 3 vans in the field last night (and ours was empty:Sad:) and a change over today with one coming and one going:Smile:

    We hope to get out somewhere on Tuesday (our weekend) to meet up with my sister who is touring the highlands, but will post some photos of the minimeet sometime soon.
    All the best and thanks for coming
    Margaret
