Edinburgh & District MAG 2011 AGM

We had an AGM at the Two Bridges Hotel in South Queensferry at the end of January 2011. The meeting was well attended, we got updates and a few ideas were thrown in for 2011. Amongst other things a website overhaul was requested and here we are. See the minutes for the rest.

Scotland MAG 2010 AGM

On 2nd October 2010 we held the MAG Scotland AGM, at the Stair Arms in Pathead. Minutes here. This meeting was well attended, with folks from Aberdeen MAG and the North East of England coming along to have their say too, and enjoy the party later on. Oh... did we forget to mention there was a totally excellent rock night afterwards?! Shame on us. It was a gas! Or maybe a bunch of gasbags. Whatever, we had a lot of fun.

The Number One Rally, Middlesbrough, 13-15 May

Run by North East MAG, Middlesbrough MAG, maybe SEN MAG and assisted by at least a couple of local clubs. Usual field, bands, beer, bonfire. What more could you want. The Tyne Tunnel toll charges Demo Run did not go ahead, as agreement had recently been reached to drop the toll charges. Not until 2014 though. So more hanging about on-site than normal manning the MAG stand and promoting our Rally. But missed out on our annual run for fish'n'chips to Whitby :-(

Into the Valley, Yorkshire, 29-31 April

Run by MAG Yorkshire and attended by bits of Edinburgh MAG. Valley Rally number 13, with lots of stalls, comedy show and a great big bonfire. Fun had by many, photies in Gallery.

Rock Night at the Stair Arms, 26th March

We had another Rock Night at the Stair Arms on 26th March 2011. Bit warmer than the last one for those camping. A reasonable turnout, a bit down on the last time but enough to cover costs and make a bit of profit. Maybe we should have cut the DJs fees...

MAG Scotland AGM & Rock Night 2010

On 2nd October we had our AGM and Rock night at the Stair Arms. Both were very well attended: opinions were voiced, committee was elected, some decisions were made, a lot of liquor was consumed and a fair bit of dancing was danced too. The staff seem quite welcoming of a bunch of hairy folks and their loud music, and there is ample parking. We don't seem to have many pics of the event though (well, the MAG crowd did get off to an early start at the bar...) so if you'd like to send us yours we'll post them in the Gallery.
