Ben Macdui Challenge 2014 Organised by Michael MacPherson Venue - Ben Macdui Date -    1st June 2014 Time - n/a Cost - Donations welcomed. Hi Everyone, Just to say that following on from last years successful sponsored walk to the summit of Ben Nevis I plan this year to climb Britain's second highest mountain, Ben MacDui, situated in the very heart of the Cairngorm's. Ben MacDui (1309m) for many years was thought to be the highest peak and Cairngorm enthusiasts from Strathspey were determined to build a huge cairn on the summit when it was discovered that Ben Nevis was 35 mts higher, but their plans never succeeded!!! The walk will take up to 8 hrs and cover 17.5km/ 10.75 miles and described as extremely exposed and tricky to navigate except in perfect conditions, so requiring good navigational skills!!! which is why i have enlisted the help of Larry Walker my fellow Hill walking partner and joining us for the day is Alastair Nicol. All monies raised from the sponsored walk will go to Nairn County FC supporters Ground Improvement Fund. Alastair has organised another sponsored walk along the Wast Highland Way in September but as I couldn't participate on that date I wanted to contribute to the total in this way instead. My Ben MacDui challenge will take place on Sunday 1st June 2014. If you would like to sponsor this mean walking machine and contribute to this worthwhile footballing cause please contact me here. Here's hoping the two walks can match last years grand total of £5,000. Thank you in anticipation of your support............Nairn County - ‘We Believe!’. Mike MacPherson

County til we die! Nairn County FC Supporters Ground Improvement Fund
020614 Ben Macdui Challenge raises £1100 A BIG BIG thank you to everybody who sponsored us for today's walk. The total sum raised so far is £1100 for Nairn County FC Supporters Ground Improvement Fund. An incredible amount, way above what myself, Larry Walker and Alastair Nicol expected and we may have some more money to come in. Our challenge would take us into the heart of the Cairngorms to reach the summits of two Munros, Ben MacDui and Cairngorm, the 2nd and 6th highest peaks in the UK. A distance of 11 miles and took us 6 hours 15mins. A special thanks to Brian and Fiona Sherret of local company GHRL for sponsoring our walk with financial support and T-shirts and to Larry Walker and Alastair Nicol for their support over the last few months. Two Munros, £1100 raised for NCFC, fantastic company on the day with Larry and Ali and guess what, we even managed to build a snowman..........LOL Many thanks everybody!! Mike MacPherson
