The pick-up locations and times will be:
This should let us catch the 10:15 am ferry or the later one @ 11.00 am.
Returning home on Saturday evening, the bus will leave Wemyss Bay @ 8.00 pm PROMPT, so the latest ferry you need to be on leaves Rothesay @ 7.00 pm. The earlier one leaves @ 6.15 pm.
If anything happens and you have to call off, please let Elaine Jamieson know by phoning or texting 07951 960469.
The next social event on the clubâ€™s calendar is Rothesay, on Saturday 19 August.
As in previous years, the club are paying for the bus, however, unlike previous years, a £10 (£5 kids) refundable deposit will be required to be paid before names are confirmed.
Deposits will be returned on the day. We have introduced this policy to try to prevent a number of cancellations in the last few days leading up to the trip.
Deposits and names can be given to Elaine on any club night.
Pick up times and locations will be confirmed next week but are likely to be Wishaw Sports Centre, approx 8.15 am and Boathouse Strathclyde Park approx 8.30 am. This event is for club members, friends and family.
We have changed the pick-up venue for going to the Brian Goodwin 10K on Friday night.
Rather than getting the bus from the Boathouse, we will now leave from the Electric Bar at 5.30 pm.
Anyone bringing cars can park in the car park at the back of the bar.
A 30 seater bus has been booked for anyone wishing to go to the Brian Goodwin 10K on Friday 16 June.
Elaine Jamieson is co-ordinating and will be at training sessions on Tuesday and Thursday evenings to take payments for the bus which will cost £10.
Names will not be confirmed until money has been paid.
The bus will leave The Boathouse at 5.30 pm prompt and will leave for the return journey at 9.30 pm, giving us a chance to enjoy a few well earned refreshments after the run.
If past years are anything to go by, we finish the night off in the Electric Bar when we arrive back in Motherwell, so there will also be a drop off at the Electronic Bar.
Please be aware the car parks at Strathclyde Park (including The Boathouse car park) close at 9pm!
The club is running a bus to the Bute Highland Games for a club day out on Saturday 20th August. There is the 10K Road Race (not part of the championship) for those who want to compete and there are various other track races available for all age groups.
The bus is open to members, family and friends. The bus will be free, although a small deposit may be required to secure a seat, this is due to the large number of late call offs in recent years. Folk will pay for the ferry from Wemyss Bay to Rothesay themselves.
What we need at this stage is a note of the numbers who will be requiring the bus. Elaine Jamieson has once again kindly offered to organise the bus. If you would like a seat(s) please reply to the post on Facebook, speak to Elaine directly, or text her on 07951 960 469. Please spread the word.
More details about pick up points, times, and the return journey will be published a bit nearer the time.
A 33 seater bus (same as last year) has been organised for the Brian Goodwin 10K.
It leaves from the Electric Bar at 6.00 PM on Friday 17th June, which will get us to The Cartha Queen’s Park Rugby Club in plenty of time for the 7.30 PM start. The bus will be returning to the Electric Bar at 10.00 PM. The Boathouse Car Park closes before our return from the race so please do not park there if you are leaving your car.
If you wish to book a seat(s) on the bus please reply to the post on Facebook or text Jim White (who has kindly agreed to sort out the numbers this year) on 07725262878.
Seats will be allocated on a first come first served basis.
Weâ€™ve had a tremendous response this year for the bus to and from the Highland Games so Elaine has put together a list of the names and seats required so far. If your name is not on the list, or your numbers have changed in anyway, please let Elaine know (via one of the methods below) immediately as we need to finalise the size of bus very soon.
