A ‘Spooktacular’ Halloween Adventure - Sunday the 30th of October.

The Falkirk Wheel to Bo’Ness & Kinnell Railway.

Meeting at the Falkirk Wheel, 15 Mini’s gathered for a ‘Spooktacular’ Halloween Adventure.
With all the Clanners & their Minis decked out in their fancy dress finest and with Halloween goody bags in tow, we headed on our way through the scenic Stirlingshire countryside en- route to the Bo’Ness & Kinnell Railway.

From the Falkirk Wheel we ‘haunted’ our way northwest on the twisty country roads through the stunning Carron Valley and the lovely villages of Fintry, Kippen & Cambusbarron.
Thankfully the rain stayed away and the sun even came out to play! On arrival at Bo’Ness, the Station Master had reserved special Mini parking for us.

Prizes were given for the best fancy dress & best dressed Mini.
The prize winners were as follows:
Best Dressed Male Clanner - Bananaman (Michael)
Best Dressed Male Runner Up - Hell Boy (Andy Gourlay)
Best Dressed Female Clanner - Cruella De Ville (Maree)
Best Dressed Female Runner Up - Witch (Joanne Pauline)
Best Dressed Mini Clanner - Smurfette (Amber)
Best Dressed Mini Clanner Runner Up - Caveman (Jack)
Best Dressed Mini - Davy McPhail

The tearoom at the station was tested by many Clanners, where a very tasty lunch was had.
After lunch a few Clanners hopped aboard the steam train for a superb journey to Manuel and back.
A big thanks to all who attended, the effort put into dressing up was amazing! It was a great day out and we hope you all enjoyed it!

Many, many thanks to Clanners Bob and Lorraine for another top Clan Event!
