Kilmarnock linear 6 December


Alan, Allan, Davie C, Dougie, Gus, Ian, Johnny, Peter, Rex, Robert

Given the poor weather forecast (not for the first time on a Wednesday this year) it was decided to hold an AGM (Annual Gastronomic Meeting) in Wetherspoon’s in Kilmarnock. Any walking was of a linear nature i.e. to the bar and back, and despite the special (14oz steak) being ‘aff’, or so they said, we had a very convivial lunch washed down with reasonably priced beers, and wine for you know who.
The banter was lively and the time passed quickly. The fitbits suggested between three and five pints with the event taking two and a half hours.
Not a bad way to spend a wet Wednesday!

Wed 6th alteration

Having consulted Rex( the Oracle) we decided that the forecast was so poor ,raining all day with 20 mph winds ,that the best plan was to skip walking along the coast from Dunure.
Therefore meet at Wetherspoons in Kilmarnock around 12.30p.m. for lunch and a couple of pints.

Alteration to the time for the 6th of December walk

The high tide will be around 1.30.p.m. We therefore need to leave Dunure around about 9.00.a.m. to ensure safe passage past Croy shore on the return route.
