At the beginning of the year I suggested dates for Highland gatherings. The first was going to be a Ladies meet - but unfortunately this did not get off the ground due to lack of interest.

The second resulted in a very successful Highland Gathering in July. Knowing that some people were unable to make it, we have decided to hold a mini meet the weekend of 28th August - the third and final date. Again it will be a true "gathering of the clans" open to 6 forums:D

Details are on our website at Brin Herb Nursery - (http://www.brinherbnursery.co.uk/highland-gathering-(meet)-g.asp?page=57)

Please let me know asap if you can make it -and we're looking forward to meeting you.

Mini meet EXTENDED ................... you are welcome to join us :D :D

Are you travelling in the north of Scotland the weekend of 28th August or do you live within reach of Inverness :?:

It's less than 2 weeks away ....... Please let me know if you can come.
It is VERY informal and the weather forecast is looking good (ref: Metcheck.com - UK Weather Forecasts - Live Data - Long Range Weather Forecasts (http://www.metcheck.com)). We have extended the dates tot 31st because a respected member of another forum is arriving here on 30th for a few days.

see Brin Herb Nursery - (http://www.brinherbnursery.co.uk/highland-gathering-(meet)-g.asp?pageID=57) for details. (Last time this link didn't work too well, so copy/paste if it is suspect!)

HOPE TO SEE YOU FOR THE MINI MEET

I had to think of a polite term to use for all the forums - was going to do something different here, but thought if I mentioned him by name I might meet the same fate as he did:mad:

ps :confused::confused: amn't I allowed a little sherry on a Sunday evening:confused::confused::confused:

John.

Hope you're still planning to come, John. We have a number of others from other forums - but no more yet from here! Will be plugging it on General chat to see if we can get some more interested - there MUST be more members about the Highlands at the end of the week.

Anyone else interested send PM or email margaret@brinherbnursery.co.uk

Aw Margaret, it looks like I'm going to have to call off again!
My daughter who I went to see in Germany has now decided to come over here for a week to do school clothes shopping and I will be chauffering her around. I will be heading your way in Sept. however as soon as I can.
Sorry to let you down again.

Many of the folks were from other forums - may be on here, as well, but under different names. However in the picture of the barbeque (and the van in the nursery) you will see Maingate and Mrs Maingate and an unnamed, banned, ex member of this forum:( (don't want to get myself sent off;)

Look forward to seeing you again sometime next year. We have really enjoyed seeing all our visitors and are now looking forward to a (well deserved?) break ourselves:D:D

In the mean time if you do want some chocolate I am sure I could send some - just drop me a PM.

All the best to you both, & safe travels.
Margaret

BTW, Thanks for posting the photos Margaret. You should have got my good side though.:p

Methinks that Grumpy is not as new to this forum as he is making out.

C`mon Grumps tell us who you really are (or who you were).

Homesick are you and back on under another name????

New or not I won't be drawn:eek::eek: Too much good, here, to risk being banned - I even managed to load wild POIs onto Tommy today - though generally we find our own places - and then camping car Aires:D Our trip to France/Spain is getting closer, but have to wait for grandbaby first:D
btw the said banned ex member was photographed supporting wildcamping t-shirt on his visit here:cool::cool::cool:

It does not matter which member someone may have been.

If members come in peace they are welcome, if they play up; they will be banned.
