The Tunnocks factory is in Coatbridge, is this not closer to you? or do you mean the other Barr, AG Barr?
Anyway I thought the proper name for whiskey was flavoured cats pee?

Anyway its not hard to convert the southerners. two work for me and after a couple of years being indoctrinated by the rest of the staff they now curse the soft southern shandy drinkers at every opportunity, newly converted and all that...........

Ai think you will find, Mr Bigwuss, that if you peruse the thread one more time with your glass eye in the right way up, you will find that it was one DM that started the whole thing. He's good

I thought Jonathon had the Raid nicely covered anyway...

Is it not out that way somewhere? I can remember working building a new John Menzies warehouse about 20 years ago and the factory was in the main street.
Its certainly out the East end somewhere...........

OK just checked its in Uddingston and that now rings a bell. Remember I am from the Southside rather than the east end............

Yes Willk I am indeed a fan. Their Halloween cruise is great! (see previous posts for photos).

I joined them for a "Raid' in Lough Neagh a few years ago but missed last year's one - its for charity - the Lough Neagh Rescue team.

I have not been on any of the other trips though as the second part of your comment fits them well.

We went to Ribraid in 2004 before we moved to Canada. Have to say we were made incredibly welcome by Gail et. al. We didn't have a boat and were able to get rides for all legs of the events. It's a long way to go from the Sarf of England (or the East where we lived) but worth it IMHO. If taking your own boat it'd be nice to do as part of a week or more of cruising on the Scottish West Coast / NI East Coast.
