Youth Members’ BIG DAY OUT

As part of the Inverness & District MCC youth promotion, in memory of our life member, Paul Kilbauskas, our youth members had an ‘activity day’ courtesy of the club at the G2 Outdoor Zip Wire facility on Alvie Estate on Saturday 29th June.

Alvie Estate are of course our Main Trial Partner for our Highland Classic 2 Day Trial and Paul Kilbauskas Memorial Trials, and we like to support the businesses who are tenants of the estate.
