Obviously, picking the size of bus requires a firm committment from reasonable numbers of people. The event would be open to HCC, U3A and other local organisations , to get the numbers needed.
The Canoe Championship at Grandtully , on the River Tay, takes place over two weekends. 6-7 and 13-14 April. As the latter clashes with the Beamish steam day, the current proposal is to attend over the 6 & 7th of April, to do some sport photography, probably with side orders of local landscape. Transport and accommodation will be arranged individually. We would probably be bumping into each other through the day at the canoe site, as river bank sites will be limited. We can arrange to meet for dinner at the end of the first day.
