In the past we have issued the invitations for the cheese & wine parties after the closing date for routes submissions. However, a few Challengers had complained that this meant they stood very little chance of being able to join us.
With this being Phil’s tenth Challenge, we decided that for one year only we would publish the invitations well before routes were due. This will mean that if folk really do want to join in, then there is plenty of time for them to design their routes to accommodate the soirées.

So, this year we are hoping for large gatherings to celebrate Phil’s tenth crossing. All are invited. They need only bring a nice bottle and some of their favourite cheese, with perhaps some nice biscuits or fresh rolls. The first will be held on Tuesday 14th May at Lochan Uaine, 3,000ft up, just below Creag Meagaidh and the second a couple of days later, due east, on Thursday 16th May at the Allt Coire Bhran, 1,700 feet up in the middle of nowhere.
It’s a nerve wracking time. Who will turn up? What cheeses will be available? What shall we wear? Us girls do like to be at our best at the parties….
Dress code: Smart casual.
Thanks, Phil, for creating the invitation with your usual flair.
