Was simply responding to a request. I really have no objection to whatever anyone else decides.
All I know is I've got 4 nights booked at Inchnadamph, I'm going to enjoy it, and that includes the quiz, whichever side I'm on!!


I reckon you'll end up quizmaster on this one Jonathan...and I'm sure you'll make an excellent job of it

Based on our conversation in bunkroom 5 at Gairloch I'm gonna get brushing up on canines, the Welsh rugby team and common ailments :wink:

There was a point to be made here regards tradition and I think it was worthwhile bringing it up.......there is no such thing as rules regards meets but some things have become intrinsic, simply because they work!!

I just feel that as the meets roll on certain wee things should always be given consideration

And like I said, new ideas are good and I'm especially impressed with your proposal for Border Terrier heckler deterence* :clap: :clap: .....Scoob is terrified of dugs!

Roll on the meet......now if Hugh can Just arrange good weather for us that'll be ideal

*that's either a Border Terrier or the biggest Yorkie I've ever seen

Hugh,
Put myself and Jet down for camping nearby.

Some helpful advice from Chris( warden) regarding camping on hostel grounds,

I'm afraid we don’t encourage camping near the hostel - once one tent is visible then we find it is hard to deter many more and we used to look like a campsite.
The main Lodge facilities can’t handle the extra people. You can wild camp nearby beside Loch Assent, and also people camp near the car park by the hotel.


Well done in getting it sorted very quickly.

I have just had a message from Alan Ross: he is at wedding on 30th July so can't be at the meet (So obviously cannot do the quiz either) He did not know the date of the meet when he told Scoob he would like to be quizmaster. He sends his apologies. (He is away on holiday at the moment, and his phone is playing up, so is out of touch with events)

Back to the quizmaster debate! .... :lol: :crazy: :shock:

Have posted this on a related Facebook page. For info here.

Alan Ross (Scotjamie) responding. In Dubai and a wee bit offline just now. Thanking Scoob (and KB) for his loyalty to quiz banter. However, delighted to welcome Jonathan 2manyyorkies to the quizmaster elite and am certain he and his Mutley will do a great job. Well done to Borderhugh for volunteering and for rightly grabbing whatever volunteers are around to help. possibility i wont manage the meet in any case. i have a pile of old quiz questions if Jonathan needs back up. all the best. The quizmaster elite might arrange a Meet all of their own sometime lol.
Developing tradition, a couple of rules and piles of good folk - all that is needed.

Work dictates that this one is a no. A shame as it's a cracking hostel in a truly fantastic place. Enjoy.
