Upcoming Events
Monday 13 May
Visit to Tayside Mountain Rescue

Hi Folks,
Confirmation that we have arranged for Members to visit the operational base of Tayside Mountain Rescue this coming Monday – arriving at 7.30pm.
Address: 4/5 Skirmie Park, Welton Road, Blairgowrie PH10 6NP
This is towards the end of Welton Road which passes by the large Tesco store/garage.
Can I suggest members meet at the Myre car park in Forfar at 6.45pm if they want to share cars, or make their own way there.
This should be a fascinating evening and give us all the opportunity to get a closer look at how the rescue team operates and the equipment/technology at their disposal. This could assist you in the future should you encounter a problem in the hills while out walking/climbing.
I hope we have a good turn out – see you there!
Regards, Steve, Tel: 07840 821576
