Over 1000 posts on the Gurn now, thanks to all those who have contributed along the way. A bit of a nerdy milestone perhaps but a milestone none the less. The evolution of the Gurn continues with the help of the Gurnite community.
Meanwhile another spectacularly sunny day with another sprinkling of tourists in the town. The Gurn has learnt that Parkdean Lochloy have got off to a flying start with 59 of the hire caravans being let out this weekend. The Gurn has mentioned before how the caravan park pulls people into Nairn and at times with hires and the owner occupied caravans there can be up to 700 people staying on the site: a not insignificant contribution to the local economy. Tomorrow another sunny day is predicted and hopefully this will encourage a large crowd up at the Wee County as the local side entertain Deveronvale in the quarter final of the Highland League Cup but there are doubts as to how many of the side's top players may be available for the fixture. Nairn County Online have highlighted the problem in their latest article:
The manager has doubts over Willie Barron - who missed Wednesday night's win with an injury picked up last Saturday - Callum Donaldson, Wayne Mackintosh, Gregg Main, Steven Edwards and David Hind who are all struggling with knocks. Meanwhile, Chris Finnigan, Scott Graham and Gary Black will definitely miss out. "We'll just have to wait and see what happens come tomorrow," he said. "Wednesday night was a very physical game and it was something of a scrap. We did expect that going there but it means we do not have a lot of time to recover. It's not like playing just on Saturdays when we have a week to recover from knocks. We got back quite late and then boys had to get up the next morning to do a day's work. So from that point of view, it doesn't give us a lot of time to recover but we just have to get on with it."
More information here on Nairn County FC matters here. The Gurnmeister will be going to the match and hopefully will have one or two decent pictures to post later in the day.
