Fowie fest Scottish Borders 9th of May 2020

Post by norrie » Tue Dec 10, 2019 10:45 pm

We are having our party again on Saturday the 9th of May (Bank holiday) at our house in Stow near Galashiels in the Scottish Borders. Post code TD1 2SR. Everyone at is invited but it's not just a Raptor event. There's plenty or room for camping and for motor homes etc. You're welcome to come on the Friday and stay until the Monday. The usual contribution towards breakfast would be much appreciated.
If people arrive on the Friday night we will probably have a bbq. On the Saturday night Anna is probably going to make a massive pot of haggis neaps and tatties again and some Scottish salmon. No set format as such just general drunkiness and talking shite about bikes etc. We're hoping for some live music around the bonfire so if you can play an instrument bring it with you.
Any questions please ask away. Please Remember it is up a very rough farm track however as long as you don't own a sports car you should be ok. Bikes are fine just take it steady. Worst case scenario you can leave your car down at the farm and I will come and get you.
Hope to see some of you there.
Norrie.

Didn't know you were moving to the Isles again.
Not sure whether or not to have this now what with all that's going on. Will see how it pans out in the next few weeks.
Em's day is the 20th of June this year.

Aye got the removal next week and back up to south Uist.
Mel got offered her dream job and it’s great schooling for the wee one.
It’s a tough call what with all this happening but even if you go ahead are people going to be able to come?

And there’s the rub Norrie!
I wouldn’t make any definite decision just now as it’s a good way off, leave it on as it is with no pressure or commitment then re-assess nearer the time?
Things may be in a different place by then and after all this shit, god knows, people will be glad of a release if things feel right!!

we will wait and see how things turn out as well, hoping to make it up this time but keeping ourselves distanced from the local riff raff at the moment.

here's hoping ..... :tada: :dance: :sing: :thumbsup:

The problem I've got is I work for the railway so not only mixing with dozens of people at work but also working on trains that thousands of people have been on. I'm at quite a high risk of either catching it or passing it on.

You may have had it, got through it and then be immune by then Norrie so maybe just wait n see?
I can understand if you just want to cancel it all completely just now so it’s not sitting in the back of your mind?
Could always just delay it until this is kinda behind us all?
