This would be Fife Flyers 250th Munro, he also has wrote up a wonderful report detailing the day which you can find in the link below. I will merely post my photos as a record of our day. It was a fabulous day, again with free flowing banter and snowball shenanigans.
I had finished this walk with Nigel (Old Danesian) as he had a long journey South ahead of him, we had great converse over many subjects...it really helped with the long walk out. My knee was really hurting now, I wouldn't walk on the Sunday
Saturday night at the WH meet was quiz night! 50 people, assigned to 67 groups, fighting for quiz champions. I heard that Fife Flyer was hot favourite...but he finished in second place . I'm sure grabbing his 250th Munro earlier would help with his devastation My young group obviously didn't have the experience, or time, to enhance our knowledge and came last
This was a brilliant weekend of walking with some wonderful people, I made some new friends and hope to walk again with them all soon. Thanks to Rod & Gary for organizing, also Gill & Tomsie for being quiz masters. Looking forward to the summer meet in Assynt...my favourite part of Scotland

Still not convinced about this European time nonsense
Jackie, Paul was getting pelted for posing more than once too often
Moving onto the quiz, not quite sure how we were hot favourites, maybe because Dougie & David were in the team
