Re: Church on Sunday - Aug 9th 2020

Thanks to Iain for bringing out his drone on the run, we will have some very cool aerial footage in the RL galley in the next day or two.

These two photos are the RL group on the Border Peak (4500ft) just a few meters from the US border, click on them for a larger photo.

Hey Brian,

Good to hear from you, hope you're all staying safe down there in the south! I'm guessing we wont be seeing the border open for quite a while.
Maybe we can arrange for a joint US-Canada run to a border peak each side of the border and wave to each other from the top !!
