Re: BCU Student Safety Weekend - have you ever gone?

Re: Avonmore River gauge (adjustment ?)

Now I know some people are thinking if you already know what the level will be like by combining what the gauge says and my own experience so why change it.

Re: Avonmore River gauge (adjustment ?)

After talking with a good few heads about this, the most common view was that. Leave the green line where it is, reason being no matter how low some people may think it the river may be it is still "low but runnable" As for the red line, loads and loads of mixed views on this one but the middle grou...
