Put me down for the Gammon & chips on Sat eve and brekky on Sunday.

What time is the off road run on Sat/Sun - is it full on mudplugging or hard trails, as I'm on semi road tyres....

I'm hoping to get there Fri eve or Sat am.

Phil,

I'm trying to get some info on BOATs from Northumberland County Council but can't get hold of THE MAN.

Basically the situation is like this:

There are maps of BOATs but they won't arrive till Saturd avro, since they are 'in the country'. Ordonance survey doesn't show 'any' BOATs in the area, but they do exist. They are reputed to be slow, but I have no infor on the condition.

All hanging a bit in mid air at the mo, but I'll do my best to get some routes to discuss on Friday night.

There are some beautiful spots in the area and I am sure we can get a very nice road trip together, at the very least.

Sorry mate, bit thin on info at the mo.

Jens

Order! Pleeaase!!

Keep the food bookings coming! 11 out of 25 sofar!

Not sure if the same menu applies for the Friday night, but I'm sure if we pre-order early enough (say Tuesday) it shouldn't be a problem. 7 people confirmed for Friday, not a strain on the kitchen I would say.

Thanks for your email and phone call.

The Menu:

BREAKFAST
Orange juice
Grapefruit segments
Cereals
Toast
Egg, bacon, tomatoes, beans, mushrooms and sausage
Tea and coffee
£4.50 per head

DINNER
Steak cassarole cooked in red wine served with potatoes and a selection of vegetables.
Home made beef lasagne served with chips, peas and salad.
Chicken curry served with rice, samosa and naan bread.
Roast chicken served with a cranberry stuffing, potatoes and a selection
of vegetables.
£6.95 per head.

All the above work well with large groups as we can prepare up front and
therefore serve all of you as quickly as possible.
For the evening with the smaller group we could also offer sirloin steaks
or gammon steaks served with chips, mushrooms, onion rings and salad.
Steak £10.00 per head and gammon £8.95 per head.
Because all the steaks are cooked to order it is not possible to cook 20
all different and to serve you all at the same time hence offering this to the smaller group only.
Vegetarian dishes available.
If your group have other ideas on what they would like to eat please ring
and we can have a chat about it.
Regards
Ann & Phil
Order, PLease!!!

Jens

Thumbs up

Jens I have literally just received some marked maps from TRF (sign up those that haven't, safeguard your future etc etc blah blah blah www.trf.org.uk ) that I'll try to stick on my OS 50,000s before the w/e. They aren't that precise area, but near by if stuck - sure local knowledge will win out.
Alec - keep the brolly 'holstered' - rain'll be blamed on you :-0

lanes for the weekend

hi all
had a good look at the maps for the area for the green lanes with a few people in the know (fred at NERO Brian TRF) and now have all the legal lanes and tracks marked on my maps.
we also have some good ideas for a route on saturday that should be good fun. should be do'able on big trailies as well (done most of them in a lany). which is good for me as i have not ridden off road before but am very keen to give it a go.
I spoke with the local TRF lad Brian and he may well be there on fri night, this lad is a wealth of knowledge on the lanes in the area.
See you all Friday
Iain / Debs
