Hi to all the guys going up to Mals week in Scotland. Getting close now and I'm really looking forward to it as I've been to Scotland several times over the years, if this will be your first time I envy you, its a place where you can be removed from the everyday crap of modern living and experience a wide open vista and realy enjoy being there. It will be a great time for all of us, goog food, DRINK, and lots of banter, I reakon I'll be the daddy of all of you due to my advanceing years, but I 'm still in my teens in my head. Do we have the food all sorted, Do we need to still bring one meal for six, if so I will get Mrs deerwarden to do her shepherds pie, useing a real shepherd for the extra taste, do we need to get anything sorted B4 we arrive miles from the nearest chippy, as I work for the Ambulance service I do have an air ambulance on standby for myself, anyone want to share, ref the pie? Any other input from those going welcome here or via p.m. Deerwarden.:lol:

Will be up there a few days prior to all of you, and remember the mobile dosnt work. If you aim to arrive about midday on Sunday I shall be around, but quite possibly on the other side of the river in the other cottage called Gardeners, next to the deer larder.

Monday morning will be sighting in, and a brief tour of the estate before we get down to the serious business of stalking in the evening. Drive carefully see you soon.

Just PM'd you. I'll sort the food out and we can split it when we get up there. Save everyone going for a shop.

Buy your own booze though...my car isn't big enough for all of that ;-)

See you soon.

It's going to be a great time, Scotland is a truely wonderfull place to stalk, just being there is good, stalking there is great. I will bring Brandy and coke for the evenings, plus some largers and lemonade for refreshments during the day, I have been asked to bring a chrono for someone to check thier loads.

Have fun everybody. Warning though - the police on the A9 are holding a major campaign on speed with lots of speed traps so just be patient.

Just a word of warning for those coming up from south of the border and fail to stop at the customs checkpoint, I will be collecting all temporary immigrant status fees on Sunday. The cost will be 10 per person per day fixed rate with an additional 2 per shot fired and 20 per beast taken. As I will not be able to attend everyday during the week any extra fees that are incurred daily can be paid to the Senior Guide, who will be introduced to you all at the beginning of the week. As a welcoming gesture the 2 per shot fee will be waived for the first thee shots during your zero check (ability test in reality).

Thank you for your attention and look forward to meeting you all and shaking you warmly by the wallet.

If anyone is trying to contact Malc after Thursday feel free to PM me as I'll be travelling up on Saturday so if I can't answer your query I can pass on the message. I'll probably be in comms reach until mid Saturday afternoon.

I've also got the lat/long of the accommodation if anyone needs it for the satnav

Looking forward to meeting everyone!

For those of you that are coming up you will be pleased to know that the weather is changing. Proper autumnal feel to it, there was haar over the kyle this morning, (mist over the water), cracking start to the day the sun came up to burn off the haar then it rained, what more could you want? I have not been up to the ground but you can be sure the stags will be well at it up there. Malcolm is travelling up today and I shall see the rest of you when you get here.
