Aye, I'm up for it. Doric as usual? Around 1900?

That's the day before the World Famous IBM Glasgow Christmas Dinner which of course would put the strict training regime in dire jeopardy, plus it's a major exercise on the free bus from darkest Ayrshire to Embra, so all I can do is wish you all well in my absence and seasons greetings to all. Have fun and be careful on the way home.

Free bus, Mmmm, I'm eligible for that too.

However. I only get home on the morning of the 17th, and I'm hoping to negotiate a free pass out for the 19th, so think I'll need to pass too.

Enjoy, and stay safe.

It would be interesting to work on the logistics of free bussing it there and back from Sunny Neilston. Can you use the night bus?

Maybe next year.

Yes -if there's one running... I've had a freebie on the 0100 from Buchanan Street back to Prestwick, no recollection of the actual journey except that they close the bogs at 2200 on the bus station, so go in the pub!

I'm on for that - I just have to remember this year ...

Doric at 1900ish the morn, then.

Looks like just the four of us then - assuming Dave remembers. :santa:

See you there.

An excellent evening. Cherry Ripe was unable to join us but kindly agreed to stand his rounds regardless and we managed to keep his bar bill below £50.

Thanks Ken. :santa:

A very pleasant evening with many thanks to Ken who though he failed to appear assured Silkie he would reimburse him for rounds. As there were only 3 of us Ken's round came round quite often. I left at the point the 21 year old Highland Park ran out after Ken's second or third round of doubles. Good on you Ken, much appreciated!
