16th Feb 2021. Thoughts turning towards opening hopefully.

Not too long now to our scheduled opening day on 20th March with pike outings scheduled before that. However we will all have to wait and see what happens with Covid restrictions before we know what is happening. With this in mind  I am postponing the opening day boat draw until next week when hopefully there might be a clearer picture of what is happening re restrictions – so there is still time to apply and it will be Davies pies…. I am going to ask him if he can create a special Menteith curry pie option for the occasion.

The ice has blown off today and I dont expect too much more with the imminent mild weather forecast but there is a hint of another high pressure building over Greenland………….

We were sorry to hear of the loss of our friend and Lochinch AC Secretary George Mooney who lived in Callander. We will miss that truly engaging smile and the man behind it. George and his mandolin were an ever-present at the extra curricular port music sessions in the hut. Our thoughts are with his friends and family.
