2nd Northern Mini Meet? Late September/Early Oct?

Ladies and gents
Anyone up for this? The meet at Blakey in April was great. Anyone interested in doing the same (location?) or similar? I am away all summer and busy in early September.

Earliest I could do is 16/17 or 23/24 September, or first weekend in October. How does this fit in with you? Brad, if it was again at Blakey, are you able to go/organise things with the landlord?

Ride safely,
ChrisB

Chris, I can never refuse a meet up, have just got back from a run out in Norway - superb weather instead of the usual rain. I also will be unavailable again for most of aug and maybe some of september, But late september sounds good. If I can I will start to sort it out in september depending on the interest shown ! Brad.
