Our 2nd day meet after the restart. Further details to follow.
The latest Zoom meeting on Monday 5th April was Members Night, but conducted in a different way from previous years. See report here. Clare was judged to have been the winner by judge Willie. The award ceremony was conducted in the car park at Glen Lethnot before that group started their walk, with Willie presenting to Clare. The prize was a best quality Mather neep and a turnip mug!
Bob Railton has made 6 blue tit, and 2 open bird boxes made out of marine ply, which should last a very long time. He's selling them for £5 each, and any monies would go to club funds.
Steve Wilson and Graeme Harris have done a great job in producing an information board which tells of the tragic loss of life on Jock’s Road in 1959 which prompted Davie Glen to build the original shelter. It also gives an account of the FDHWC’s role in maintaining the shelter, including the recent rebuilding and refurbishment. Steve researched and wrote the text and arranged the layout to create an excellent, informative and very smart board. An excellent and fitting finishing touch to the recent work on the bourach - thank you to both. See photos here
It’s that time of year again the subs are due! The Committee appreciate that there have been no outdoor activities for almost a year
but hopefully there is the first sign of light at the end of the tunnel. We will begin our day and weekend meets as soon as it is permissible and deemed safe to do so.
At the recent online EGM it was agreed unanimously that fees will remain the same for the new year.
