Don’t miss this year’s Great Oban Raft Race

The Oban Times - - News -

I SPOKE too soon about the weather last week, sorry!

I’m just keep­ing my fingers and toes crossed for The Great Oban Raft Race on Satur­day, writes Oban town am­bas­sador Kay MacDon­ald.

It is al­ways such good fun to watch and the ef­fort put into the rafts and the cos­tumes im­presses me every year.

Don’t for­get there’s still time to en­ter if you haven’t al­ready, even on the day of the race it­self which starts about 2pm.

Good luck to ev­ery­one tak­ing part and thank you in ad­vance for the laugh I al­ways have watch­ing (I’m not laugh­ing at you, I’m laugh­ing with you, hon­est).

If rugby is more your thing, then have a wan­der up to Oban Lorne Rugby Club on Satur­day for the Tower 10s.

Ladies can try rugby from 10am to noon with the first match at 11.30am and a disco in the evening from 7.30pm. The bar will be open and food will be avail­able so it sounds like a very full day.

If you’re look­ing for some­thing to do in the evening, then it’s the Ar­gyll Ceilidh Trail Fi­nale in Skip­in­nish Ceilidh House which will be a fan­tas­tic evening, as well as all the other great mu­sic in the pubs around the town.

We also have a house­hold name play­ing in the Cor­ran Halls next week when John Bishop brings his Win­gin’ It show to Oban on Thursday Au­gust 10.

So much to do and so lit­tle time!

Hope­fully, most of you no­ticed that last week’s photo was on the cor­ner of Steven­son Street as you turn in from Ge­orge Street. It’s been there so long, I’ve been obliv­i­ous to it for years.

This week’s photo is slightly fur­ther afield but it is a lovely wee walk.
