Default The Legendary Scotland trip May 8th

Hi all

Last year a few of us at MAD decided we would pay a visit to the lads up North....(way way North) as they had been coming down here for a good while. After one thing and another it was cancelled sadly...but its all been changed this year and May 8th is the due date. As far as i know at the moment flights are cheap as haggis..i mean chips and you can fly up there for about 18 and get back for 22 on Easyjet...Not even a Scotsman would worry about that price . Mr Chillingworth is going to drive and take a good few guns up there so you don't have to worry about taking them on the plane which is handy. Mr Bainbridge is also driving up and will also be able to take some guns ( only worry is that your gun develops Tourettes??). As it stands there are a good few from MAD going as i am sure it will be a proper event, and talking of the event itself, Kenny has told me that there will be a 30 shot course in the morning then a 30 shot course in the afternoon so well worth the trip for sure.There will be more info as i get it. Mr Chill will be putting up the flight details as i cant do hyperlinks and i am waiting to hear about accommodation, once i do then i will put it up on here ASAP!

So anyone want to come and have a giggle way up North??

LAity

Bring your passport laddie, we will be inspecting it!

Would be great to see as many of you as possible and Im sure a few side bets will be laid down at the Worlds!

Might even make sure we cancel the rain for that day!

Hello All as Roger has said I will be driving up and taking the rifles. This is because both Ryanair and Easyjet charge a fortune for taking rifles.

As such i have agreed to drive and will be asking for donations to cover the fuel costs.


From Luton and stansted

Easyjet


or for those of you who want to go by train,

Kings X to Edinburgh is 4.45min and will cost 28.50 on a super saver via the Trainline.com

Train tickets


Just remember, you are not allowed to take an air rifle on a train without the permission of the train company.

And they are not allowed to search your guitar case either

Too early to say yet but i'm hoping to make this. I've checked the shooting calendar and it seems to be a clear date.

4.5 hour drive for me

We were chatting about this at Emley on Saturday and it looks a sthere might be 9 or 10 planning to come at the moment. We're planning to have a night out in Edinburgh on the sat and then attend the shoot on Sunday. Possibly getting a mini bus.
