So, the paternal readership of this will probably be curled up on the sofa with the Sunday papers and a dram in their hand… Doesn’t get much better than that really, eh?
But wait…. Yes it does!
We’ve just been alerted by the lovely people at Jura Distillery, that they’re offering a trip for two to Jura Lodge.
Yes, you too can re-enact the shambolic happenings that we forced the patient locals to endure – or, perhaps you can behave in an altogether more civilized fashion, and restore their faith in humanity…?
Regardless of your course of action, we guarantee that you’ll have a wonderful time amidst some of the most bewitching scenery Scotland has to offer.
There will also be some pretty spectacular whisky involved.
To enter, all you need to do is check out the official blurb:
“Stories, myths and folklore abound on Jura. To sample its idiosyncratic delights first hand we’d like to hear one about you and your father. In 300 words or less weave a tale that involves the pair of you, a little luck and perhaps some Jura. That done and you could be the very fortunate recipient of a stay in the eclectic and unforgettable Jura Lodge on the island itself. It’s a place like no other on an island like no other.”
So get typing, entitle your email “Father’s Day Tale”, and send it to email@example.com before the 1st August 2009, and if you win, you have to take me. That’s in the rules.*
