Today was the first game show on my 2017 calender so off I trotted(or drove) out to Straiton to meet up with Colin Jack first picking up Mr Ray and Bill Miller along the way and after a quick trip into Macdonald's for a not so healthy brekkie we all climbed into Colin's mean machine and headed for the not so sunnier climes of Dumfries.We've driven the road to Dumfries many a time passing through Moffat on the way and still Mr Ray hasn't seen the Devil's Beeftub which is a valley north of Moffat where Reiver's used to hide their ill gotten rustler gains as it was a tad misty.
We arrived into Dumfries and headed for the Cairndale Hotel where the gameshow was held and set up our show table in record time giving us some time to peruse the rest of the show,stopping off for coffee and a bacon roll on the way.

|This was a game based on the film "The Warriors" from 1979 which was said to be an outrage at the time but regarded as tame nowadays.|
|I really fancy a castle.|
|This wasn't a picture of a game but a very nice looking pint.|
