2009 RALLY – No 27
Incredible attendance at the 2009 rally. Must have been one of the busiest. Weather was changeable but gradually improved towards the weekend.
The crack was good, the food was good (you must try Lowrie’s chicken pies in a roll), the real ale was excellent.
The event was filmed by Eyeline Media from Aberdeen and will be for a BBC ALBA motoring programme (Air an ratha – or something like that). The programme will be on the Gaelic channel sometime late August 2009 I believe so if you have SKY you can get it or also BBC iPlayer. The programme will be subtitled for all of you who cannot speak Gaelic.
Made a few new friends this year and reacquainted myself with others. Just a shame the Lerwick Carnival and Pier Foy were not on the same weekend this year.
Good points: too many to mention
Bad points: Northlink need to get their booking system into gear. No carnival. Horrendous Ferry Inn prices for sunday afternoon.

Rumour has it the mechanic is really a vet and was spotted earlier with his hand up the exhaust!
How she gave birth to a fully clothed hairy arsed biker I still am not sure but the head did come out just after this picture was taken!
