Tartan RallyThe Tartan Rally is held every October in Stirlingshire. It's an invite only rally so the location isn't publicised. If you want to be invited take a look on www.MercuryMCC.co.uk and you'll find details of the rally and rally sec.
It's a fairly trad rally, based around a large village hall. There are bands on the Friday and Saturday evenings. Good food, very cheap beer, but most of all a damn good craic!!
The very large cat-shit coloured badge is the 25 year anniversary badge (The next Tartan anniversary badge will be for
30 years oops --- see Jeff Mitchell's message!)
The white badge with the diamond instead of the tankard (my own design btw) marked the 60th Anniversary of Mercury MCC in 2006. Rally trophies for that year were etched crystals with illuminated bases (Don't be expecting that every year!!)
See you at the Tartan!
I think it's great because I helped organise a lot of the Tartan Rallies. And it brings back great memories (My god I'm good looking in the photo carrying the gas cylinder. Hehe.)
I'll try and write some stories.

Interesting and engaging and a pretty good read
