Snowboarding at Cairngorm... in November! - Fiona R
19th to 21st November 2010 - Laggan Hotel, Laggan (Dinner Meet)
Another year, another dinner meet. This time the clubs weekend of living it up was at the Laggan Hotel where 26 of us pitched up on a dreich November night. The hotel was very welcoming though with nice spacious rooms to clutter up with all the usual rucksacks, boots, climbing kit and waterproofs. We all met up at the bar on the friday evening, catching up and planning for the next day.
The saturday was a very cloudy grey affair which saw myself heading for some out of the way corbetts in Glen Tromie, Chris & Alison joined up with Fiona M to climb Honeypot in the Norries, a group went to Chno Dearg and Sgriodain, another on to Meggy and the usual munros, corbetts and grahams were bagged.
The dinner in the evening was scoffed down by all and then it was time for El Presidente to sum up the year within the club and Alison, ably assisted by glamourous sidekick Kenny, this year introduced awards for various members, although its fair to say the categories were a bit vague and I'm not sure you really want to strive to be the recipient of said awards. A full list of the winners will be added here shortly so that we have a permanent record for the club archives. We then retired to the bar to drink and chat some more.
The sunday was equally dreich with lots of low cloud folks headed off in various directions, mostly to have an easy day, such as Birnam Hill in the case of myself, Anne, Martin & Christine.
A link to some pics of the w/e will also be added here shortly.
