This is our second DF Night of 2019 around the county of East Lothian. The “fox”, this time is Ricky GM1PLY and no doubt will find a good hiding place and then he will transmit for 30 secs every 5 minutes starting at 19:00. The DF Hunt finishes at 20:45 where we retire to the Thorntree Inn for the DF Hunt debrief.

Easy to find…? I can assure you it is not; East Lothian throws up some strange radio transmissions which can send you on a wild goose chase….
So, do you want an evening of good fun well come along and join in. I hope you all will do.

CHRISTMAS NIGHT OUT – SATURDAY 7th DECEMBER @19:00 – Are you interested?

Yes, I can’t believe that I am thinking about and organising our Christmas Night out and it is still August as I write this. After discussions with quite a few people it was suggested Crolla’s Italian Kitchen, The Courtyard, Station Road, Eskmills, Musselburgh EH21 7PQ as a venue so to that end I have booked a reservation for 30 people. The advantage is that it is central for everyone and it is right on the major bus routes.

Now the criteria….

[The choice for the night will be one of the above for everyone. I will decide which
one when the Christmas Menu comes out]

Note: this is a Kitty value and hopefully will cover the meal and some drinks. If the bill comes to more than this then obviously, we will need to split the extra between us.

o Need to pay the deposit to the Restaurant on the 21st September 2019
• The full amount needs to be paid by the 30th November as I need to confirm the booking with the restaurant on the 30th November
