Alex will pick the tractor and trailer up for us in the morning and will arrive at the club for around 9:15 am. Bodies willing and able to help get the float set up and decorated (assuming that the Bunting and Balloons actually arrive - the Post Office are cutting it enormously tight this year) should assemble for a 9:30 am start at the club please.
Once the float is decorated, it will head off to the rallying point which is on the service road at the back of Beatsons. All participants should meet there at around 12:15 pm. The Parade will move off sometime between 1:00 pm and 1:30 pm and will head through Penicuik ending up in Wilson Street. Kids can then be collected from Wilson Street/Jackson Street.
Face paints, playing strips and water pistols are the order of the day. We will supply playing strips for those that do not have one.
I will emphasise again that there are to be NO Water Bombs brought or used whilst on/near the float or whilst wearing club colours. And yes, I DO mean that.
Here’s to some fine weather and a good turnout. And if you’ve got a couple of hundred large red/blue balloons that you could spare then please bring them down on Saturday morning in case the ones that I’ve ordered don’t materialise.
