Imp Ecosse 2019

Postby wiskid » Sat Oct 06, 2018 1:33 pm

Imp Ecosse March 2019
It’s still a long way off but members like to plan ahead so here are some facts about Imp Ecosse 2019.

Ecosse always happens around Easter, usually before as Easter marks the start of the Holiday Season and this is where the problems start. Easter is a movable feast and in 2019 it falls on the weekend of 19-22 of April with school holidays the first two weeks of that month.
This makes it near impossible to book venues at the end of March/beginning of April as holiday makers fill the rooms of hotels and pitches of camp sites (the start of the high season). This pushes Imp Ecosse into the weekend of 22nd March and this is no time of year to camp out or even motorhome in Scotland. We have done it before but we are all a good bit older now.
As a result I have booked accommodation at the Cairndale Hotel on English St. in Dumfries DG1 2DF. The hotel offers double or twin rooms, family rooms, a limited supply of single rooms all with a DB&B tariff of £110/double and £79/ single. The hotel also boasts a swimming pool and spa with beauty treatments for those who like a relaxing weekend. You can also relax in the well-stocked bar areas!
If you are interested and are planning to join in the fun of Imp Ecosse please contact the hotel on 01387 254111 and state that you will be with the IMP ECOSSE party as the hotel have pre booked rooms for us.
The weekend will possibly follow the traditional format of runs quizzes and raffles with perhaps one or two surprises thrown in for good measure as Dumfries and Galloway can surprise most people.

Just to confirm, although weekend of 22nd is "no time of year to camp out" that is the weekend for Ecosse?
Not a criticism, just want to be clear. :D

Hi All, looks like you have all taken my advice and booked early (although there will be rooms aplenty) as there are 36 rooms and 66 people booked in already! Looks like I will need to print off more paperwork to meet demand.
Hope you all had a great Festive season and are getting those marvellous wee cars in good fettle for Ecosse.
See you all soon and there is plenty more rooms to be had.

Regards

Don't need you have an Imp on the road or even own one to attend Imp Club events, ideal chance to get to know other members.

All raffleprizes gratefully received. Just bring what ever you want and hand in at registration. All proceeds go to pay for the weekend. It also goes toward the entertainment if the prizes are wacky.
