:cool:

By my rough calculation, it should just about be big enough to cast distance diagonally  :grin

Ben

........... :z4

But most of us will be ok going straight up the middle :z7

Hi folks :cool:

We have a dozen names confirmed for this already ....... which is perfect for an indoor event :z12

I think we would maybe have space for a couple more folk, if anybody else is keen to come along, but I think it would be sensible to say 16 max :wink

Best wishes
Mike

Would really have liked to go but unfortunately work commitments prevent me from making it (again)  :cry
I'm hoping the next time will be third time lucky.  All the best.

Hi Kevin

Hi Ben
New toys ..... cool :z16

The Garioch Sports Centre in Inverurie is booked and paid for :wink

As long as the current 12 folk turn up on the day, the cost per person will be 11 ( this would go up on the day by approx 1 for each person that does not turn up / or will come down by approx 1 for each person that increases our numbers above 12 )

Best wishes

Hi folks :cool:
Not long to go now ....... cool :z16

For those that haven't been there before, the Garioch Sports Centre in Inverurie is easy to find. Coming off the roundabout in to Inverurie at the top end of the A96, you'll pass the police station on your right and have Morrisons supermarket on your left, when you reach the next roundabout the first exit goes in to morrisons and the petrol station, take the second exit which goes in to Burghmuir Drive and the sports centre is a couple of hundred yards on your right. Opposite the old I&K Motors site (which they now use for servicing) and the Strathburn Hotel. The sports centre has a website at http://www.gariochsports.co.uk/

As per the last Outcasts Gathering, please do not bring all your tackle with you ..... we do not want anybody losing/dropping flies or hooks in an area that other folk will be using! Just bring rods and lines that you would like to try on the day, plus leader material and some wool to tie on the end :wink

It would be nice to get some videos, if you have digital camcorders?

Peter and Ben, have you guys thought about a couple of games we can try, with the hoops etc?

I'm looking forward to Saturday :cool:

I'm assuming the centre will have stands that hold badminton nets etc that we could use to tie hoops on or even use for limboing under Mike. Can you check please??

I hadn't thought about that Peter, I was thinking about the hoops simply being on the floor for some reason :roll

If I get a chance over the next couple of days I'll nip in and ask them. Are any of the games easier to set up on a floor rather than hanging hoops? I can't remember :oops

Are they fussy about footware on the sports floor? Some games halls insist you change your shoes so you don't bring muck and grit in from the street. :z8
