This sounds great and I'd love to go but can't commit to it yet. Realistically, does this get booked up fast or am I still liable to be able sign up nearer the date? I get the impression it's a smaller affair than Ripley
Thanks Grant; I know you're very busy but if it's filling up very fast perhaps you or another organiser could pass by and mention it here, so those of us lagging can get our skates on
If we look like filling up we'll do our best to let you know - the weak spot / reality is simple though; we don't check numbers daily, so it might be a couple of weeks before we notice - and then there may not be much warning, so keep a close eye on this thread - best to subscribe to it!
This sounds great and I'd love to go but can't commit to it yet.
Hi Sennen, I went for the first time last year and really enjoyed it. Do go if you can wangle it. The Mendip area (if you don't know it) is quite beautiful with some great minor roads to ride and the coast isn't that far away either. There's a very nice atmosphere about the Meet, but then, it's HU isn't it I'm actually feeling a bit gutted at the moment. I already know I can't go. I'm booked to be riding in Spain - shame - thought I'd got my dates right Good excuse for not making it though eh. Anyway, hope you do manage to get to it. You'll not regret it I'm sure.
Well, I've registered, booked, paid and volunteered to help with setting up.
I was wondering, though ... if I turn up for wednesday morning, (as the form said setting up will be from wednesday 10.30am), wether I can camp on site from this day?
Also ... I'll be riding down from Sheffield, wednesday morning, if any others are going this early, from ooop north, and fancy joining me.
Site only open from Friday, setting up starts Thursday...
Thanks very much indeed for volunteering to help, it make all the difference to have some folks giving a hand, especially with set-up and taking down.
I'm afraid there was a bit of a typo on the form that you saw, as setting up on-site only starts Thursday evening.
If you're involved in volunteering than you're welcome to stay on site with us Thursday night, but please don't arrive before Thursday evening.
In the unlikely event that no one is allowed to stay on site Thursday night, you can stay at our place in Wells.
I'll email you now and will include phone numbers to get hold of us.
Any questions, do call.
