The week before is Easter. So that's a bummer. The week before that is just too early.

Correction.

I know. I know. It would suit me. But - some people are funny aboot Easter holidays. If there is enough of a quick response we could change it. It was murder dealing with Forfar Law and Administration Dept obstacles, as it was bad enough fending off try ons on; insurance, medical volunteers, lost children minders, fire and safety hazards, etc, etc. I could be here all day explaining their time wasting tactics. You just don't accept it any more than McMaisiter's NTS's (Lib Dem cooncillor, local Grand Wizard and all) anti political try ons at Bannockburn, where he does not want a Nationalist rally neither.

It can be changed if there is a quick enough response. Technically we require 28 days notice. They are uncooperative at the best of times. I would have to notify everyone, other groups, bus, folk group, pub, buffet, police, Forfar Law and Administration Dept. etc

Highland Region and Glasgow are easier to deal with once you have mastered their numpty forms, which would be useless in education circles. They sound as though they were made up by a Labour chttp://www.siol-nan-gaidheal.org/phpBB ... oncillor's nephew after a night of the horrors and a pub quiz. They are are repetitive and duplicitous. Not enough lines/space for phone numbers, addresses and a big space for an essay on why we are having a rally, etc. At one time Glasgow was murder. They couldn't be more helpful now.We just stuck to our guns and persevered

Nah. It's mainly family people who go holiday, etc. We've had al this before.

Arbroath scoriach starts at 4 pm immediately after the rally.

Glasgow bus eaves at 8 pm. Scoriach will continue after the bus leaves

'Brack- o- Linn' will be playing till then, with Tam the piper. That's all we can afford without putting the prices up.

If anyone wants to jam it will be even better.
