TGO Challenge 2019 - Ice Creams and a Foot Massage

We had a lazy day in Montrose before attending the Friday meal for about 80 people, which brought the 40th TGO Challenge to a conclusion.

The staff at the Park Hotel, from where the event has always been coordinated for the duration of the Challenge, even provided a birthday cake. That was after elder statesmen Hamish Brown and Roger Smith had given short speeches in appreciation of the Challenge and some of its legendary participants. 

We had a most sociable day, including a massage for Sue, ice creams all round, and a foot massage for John, who I collected from his St Cyrus finishing point in order to get him to the Park Hotel by the 5 pm deadline.

Good to see that you finished the walk ok....it looked very interesting with beautiful scenery.
My husband and myself were chatting to you over breakfast in Oban on the morning you set off on the walk.
Best wishes, Julie and Spyke Reay.
