March to the River Don, 16th February 2013
« on: January 15, 2013, 18:39:44 PM »
Hi to all,

Less than a Month to go now to the Start of the 2013 Fishing Season.

I would like to, on behalf of Inverurie Angling Association, to invite you all to its Annual March to the River Don at Inverurie to celebrate the start of the season on Saturday 16th February.

This year there will be Coffee/Tea available inside the Kintore Arms Hotel, High Street, Inverurie after 08:45am.

The March starts at 09:30am and is led by a Piper down to the old Road Bridge where the River will be blessed by our local Minister Graeme Longmuir and a whisky is offered to toast the new season.

Our local Distillery Glen Garioch (Morrison Bowmore) have come forward to partner our event.

We are still speaking to others about 'words of wisdom' down at the river bank.

This event is open to all Anglers, families and friends.

I hope you can come along and support us in what has become a great local event, this year I will definately will be there.

Regards,
Bri.

Many apologies but I've had the fortnight from hell at work and tomorrow will be no different, pity 'cos traditions like that need upholdin'

Hope there are a few photo's taken (Mike) and that those fishing have a successful day.
