Gatherin 'O' The Clans
Date : 22nd-23rd June 2024
Time : TBA
Venue : Grampian Museum of Transport
Contact : Secretary
Info : No date has been confirmed for this event as of yet but there has been a proposal put fwd by Aberdeen MGOC as follows
1. Gathering of the Clans is held on Saturday June 22nd at
the Grampian Transport Museum, https://www.gtm.org.uk/.
<https://www.gtm.org.uk/> The Museum is located in Alford, approximately 23
miles due west of Aberdeen. It has a short purpose-built oval circuit so we
could hold parade laps and other demonstrations if required. There is a
grandstand for spectators and plenty of room in the grounds. I have
provisionally booked the museum for the whole weekend of 22nd / 23rd June
2. There will be the usual catering available on site and
GTM have suggested they could do a barbecue or even a hog roast for us,
subject to numbers note though that this would be at extra cost.
3. We thought that people coming a distance would possibly
like to make a weekend of it and could come up Friday and stay in one of the
Hotels in the village (I will try and negotiate a reduced rate if there is
sufficient interest) or in one of the many different hotels nearby.
4. There would be an option to also stay over on the
Saturday night - we could possibly arrange an evening get together / dinner
if there was sufficient interest and depending on where most folk are
5. On Sunday morning, we plan to assemble in the Museum car
park for a scenic road run of approximately 40 miles out to Balmoral Castle
where you could (probably) visit the Castle, a photo opportunity in front of
the Castle, refreshments / lunch in the café and then disperse home.
6. Estimated cost for the weekend will be around £25 per
car (excluding entry to Balmoral this cost to be confirmed) which will
include entry for 2 people to GTM and the Tea Room. As you will see on the
GTM website, 2023 entry to the Museum is £12 per person.
