scottish Branch..

Postby badobsession » Fri Jan 22, 2010 1:28 am

THE SCOTTISH BRANCH.
thought it was time we got a mention .
a bit about us......

The branch was formed in January 1981
the first meeting was held in november 1981
and we had 35 members
by 1982 this had risen to 56..
our first annual rally was in june ,now with 122 members
by 1983 we had 173.
membership rose to 347 by 1990 this was the peek and has been in decline
we currently stand at 160 members.

as a branch we hold an annual rally every year, we try and move the rally around the country
some parts of the country attracting more numbers of cars than others .
over the past few years we have had visitors from other MMOC branches attending our rally.

out annual rally this year is in the beautiful town of Peebles. more on this later....... :wink:

we are a branch with a membership spread over a very large area so we try and encourage members to
start social groups , at this time we only have one active group and this is in AYRSHIRE .
the Ayrshire group meet every month and organise runs ,dinners,and other outings threw out out the year.
any one interested in the scotthish branch please feel free to post up ... :D :D :D

Last years' event at Bridge of Allan was good - not so sure about Peebles...... As ever - depends on the weather on the day.

why not Peebles...... Roy .

as for the weather we cant do any thing about that but the same amount of hard work and organising goes in to the rally
and we would like to think people make an effort to come to the annual rally what ever .

if anyone has any suggestions about a venue for a forth coming rally please let us know .

feed back of past venues is also good , give us your feed back good or bad, we can change things but only if we know they are wrong ......
thanks ,,,

Peebles - well - a few years ago I came down to the event there - in my Traveller -parked in the car park outside the Hay Lodge - and walked across to see what was happening. Not a lot! About 4 cars present - walked about, looked at the 4 cars - not a soul spoke to me - all sitting in a huddle (as usual) - so I got back in my car and went off to explore Peebles!

As for future events - come to Bo'ness Steam Railway!! Nice big hard surface carpark - and we can probably get entrants either a free ride on the steam train - or at least reduced cost ride!!

I'll be at most of these - in one car or the other. I should be Guard at Bones on 20th (Fathers' day 'Transport' event). But no reason why MMOC couldn't have their own day at Bones some other week-end. Just avoid the Thomas events !
