Last week's Scottish Association of Geography Teachers' annual bash was held in Dundee, and the organising committee pulled out all the stops to make it a memorable occasion, with a reception, supper and guided tour aboard "RRS Discovery".

This left SAGT vice-president Malcolm McDonald looking impressed, if slightly worried. "I'm on the organising committee for next year's conference in Edinburgh and I'm wondering how we can top this."

But Mr McDonald didn't get where he is today without being innovative.

"I've got it," he confided later. "'Discovery' this year - 'The Royal Yacht Britannia' for 2007".

Costs, we understand, have still to be investigated.
