1891

Outdoor Meeting

EPS Council announced in 1881:

"We have decided to revive the Outdoor Meetings which were so successful some years ago."

The outing to Inverkeithing took place on 16 May 1891.  BJP reported:

"The first of the Saturday afternoon half holiday rambles came off on the above day, having been delayed from that first arranged in consequence, among other things, of the backward state of the weather.

On Saturday, unfortunately, there was a recurrence of severe wintry weather, severe cold - in fact it was altogether a boisterous, blowy day with occasional bright intervals of sunshine between slight showers of snow and hail.  Despite this …(there were about 30 members on the outing)….

The President an Council, with the object of encouraging these trips, and reviving what used to be a notable feature of the Society - viz. outdoor trips and work - desire it to be known that they have resolved to offer several silver medals for the best examples of work taken by members during these rambles."
