I'm not sure I'd agree with amateurish mistakes really. For the Owners Club, is my role to organise (with guidance from local.hosts where its an area I don't know) may be a different set up with the Owners Group, but I think that in general there are a couple of unwritten rulesDear everyone, thank you for coming to our first annual Scottish Meeting. I really hope you all enjoyed yourselves, I now know a bit more about planning an event like this and will hopefully avoid some of the amateurish mistakes I made this year. Thank you to everyone who helped make it a success. Everyone I asked or volunteered was unfailingly generous with their help. Thank you. What a wonderful bunch you are!
1) At least one person (or indeed, based on the time about 15 of us circled a village 3 times a few years back, the whole convoy) has to go astray on a drive out, through no fault of their own
2) Food be it in a pub or provided should be slightly chaotic but always lovely
3) Any mishaps or similar just serve to make it all the memorable
It was a great weekend in a beautiful country and a massive thanks to you for hosting. I know the area better now so can help more in the future.
