iphonejune2015 025Planner was Neil McLean
Controller was Chris Aust
Organiser was Donald Grassie

The first (and only) response to our wee competition was Neil McLean whose first reaction on seeing the photo was disbelief: “But why wasn’t I in the team?”
He quickly regained his composure sufficiently to correctly identify not only the year, the competition and the team members but also the location as being “the top end of Scolty”.

His composure was shot down in tatters again tonight when presented with his prizes – a legendary GRAMP chocolate coin and a bit of GRAMP memorabilia in the shape of a rather fetching pair of red lycras, not too dissimilar to those sported by Bob in the photo.

11 Person 1996Other members present tonight were heard to mutter something about “not entering any competitions if that’s what you get”. No sense of adventure!

Many thanks to David Esson for supplying the photo and results. Does anyone else have anything stashed away that Rob, our club historian, could borrow to scan in and publish during our anniversary year? (Mr Controller 1996, we’re looking at you for starters…)
