  1. Sad to hear of Margaret’s passing.when Alex Smith and my self where involved in the Scottish. Margaret was a good observer.and was not swayed by top riders inquiring about what they lost in her section. she would say you will see results tonight. RIP. JOCK

  2. So sorry to hear of Margaret’s death. She was such an enthusiastic person to be around, always joining in the fun. We in the Melville were very lucky to have all the contribution she made to the Club’s activities. My condolences to her family. Tommy Milton
