“news items & up dates”

Hi, from time to time, I hope to up date you on any news from either “sandbaggrs”, myself or from fellow trekkers etc, so keep an eye on his site,cheers Jock

“NEWS FLASH” (16th sept) Depending on volunteers stepping forward, I have been reliably informed a FILM COMPANY may be interest on doing a wee piece on the trek? YAHOOOOO braw eh
 
The response I have had  for people wanting to go on this once in a life time trek has been fantastic, but I,am afraid I,am going to have to put a cap on numbers,so after speaking with “sandbaggers” I have said 10 from each team can go with me, sorry about this  but who doesn’t go can always help those chosen to raise funds ,
 
“Jinky” Johnstone fund, lady’s,gentlemen you may have noticed that I have changed the front page on charity for Jinky? WHY! I personally feel that money raised would be better spend helping those with this decease  rather than what the trusts aims are doing, all be it very good, Quote from the site,“The Jinky Johnstone Trust will provide 67 sets of football kits completely FREE.  Each kit will be provided in the teams own colours.  Clubs are asked to apply to us and list a valid reason to why their club should benefit for a free set of strips.”

“one for you diary?“—- proposed seminar
after speaking with”Dave” from sandbaggers, he is looking to organise a wee seminar, the date looks like being the saturday 13th of november, the venue and timings I will publish at a later date, every thing you want to ask or hear about the trip will be discussed,(27/09)
 
“numbers” this is how the numbers break down to date lads,(5th oct)
 
Rangers x 6
celtic x 5
Motherwell x 1
others x 3
 
so please pass the word around to any supporters clubs,sites,ass, etc so we can take 30 with us, ie more lads & lassies = more money for our chosen charities,aye Jock
