'Please find attached invites to our OPEN WEEKEND 12th & 13th October.
If possible can you give us a guide to how many of your club members will attend our gathering in October.
As it is our 70th Anniversary year of the Strathaven Track and 'Margaret', our steam locomotive, we would ask that where you can please bring a locomotive either to display or run on our track. We have arranged for two of the local newspapers to have a photographer and a reporter to cover the weekend , so looking to put on a bit of a show please.'
