Dan has relaunched the Mull Disc Golf Website with the help of Nige Williams at Disc Zoo. (see site URL below)

You can find all you need there as above but please note the following-

1) Dan has just started designing the site so please be patient with obvious errors or omissions.
2) If you are intending to come please book your accommodation as soon as possible
3) If you plan on using the bunk house at Dervaig please contact Dan, not Emmaleigh. We have
booked all the beds so we can be sure you get one, as well as lounge, kitchen and showers of course.

Looking forward to seeing you all - any and all questions will be answered.

‎5 trains, 2 train companies, 3 different bike reservation policies, 2 youth hostels, 2 guest houses, 1 ferry, 1 bunkhouse :shock: ... so much for turning a tournament into a holiday!

Cycling from Glasgow to Dervaig seemed like a good idea at some point. I think I must have been sleep deprived, or drunk!

I'm planning on going to Mull from Edinburgh.

Is there anyone else around here going?

Thought about catching the train to Oban and trying to connect with someone there at the ferry. Anyone catching the ferry from Oban to Mull on the Thursday or Friday before and Monday after tournament that I could ride with?

Cheers

As far as I am aware You and Del have confirmed Bunks. Dan is away in Africa at the moment so will check with him when he returns.

Del, is Rene still thinking of coming?

Mull registrations gaining pace. 12 non-islanders and 8 islanders so up to 20! Will be an intimate affair.

Chris Gill - if you can get to Graignure or Fishnish will pick you up or arrange for it to happen.Come on over.

I am leaving for Mull 20th may and will be there all week before so check in wth Gremlin at Fanmore as soon as you arrive.

Meanwhile, if anyone else wants a bunk check with Dan. We have a room of four beds booked so far. Others are available from Emmaleigh in Dervaig. Dan has details.

Happy travels - especially Paul! May you be puncture free!

Still hoping that John & I may be able to make it (Ben in the middle of exams). But it depends on whether I recover from injury in time - fell on a rocky river bank while in pursuit of a silver tourist and popped my right shoulder, ligament damage I think :(
Will make last min decision - may just turn up on the w/e.
Have fun everyone otherwise.

@ Charlie: Got a train arriving in Oban at 11:21 am on Friday, I'll catch the first ferry over. I asked Dan if he knew of anyone coming around that time that I could catch a lift with. I'm fine with the boot.
