Scottish Guzzi Rally

This year the 25th anniversary was at Thornhill near Stirling again, a great location and a hugely enjoyable weekend in the company of some excellent people. The dancing was good, the bands were good, the food was good but oh my the alcohol although good bit me back and it took three people to get me in the tent on Saturday night I'm ashamed to say, however most people seemed to have witnessed the debacle and it seemed to give them a laugh as they watched me be very ill on the Sunday. Sunday was a very subdued day for me but a great weekend overall. The organisers did a brilliant job and it was good to see Guy from Belgium back this year with his wife to visit the crazy Scots! The pictures tell the story better than I could...........
