3rd Northern Mini Meet!

New meeting - New thread....

Seems to me there is some resesistance to Applrecross on grounds of distance and it being in a different country??? It's a fair cop! Perhabs we have to ask the Scottish contingent to organise that and just invite ourselves when it's ready...

How about Lakes in March? Keeps us moving the area and stay on 6 months schedule...Or is anybody interested in a Winter Meeting?

Just keep the ideas coming...

winter meet

Sounds like a damn fine plan.
Once again can I heartily reccommend Dent (Cumbria), it is a few klicks north of the ribblehead viaduct. there are several trails to play on for the adventurous. There is good food and in the pubs in town (500m from campsite). (one of the landladies does a fair Ms Basil Fawlty).
The campsite does a fine Breakfast.


the whole area is well worth visiting.



I vote for mid Jan (am away latejan/early feb).

I go to a Laverda meeting down there every winter - been a Laverda owner - rider for 20 years, now sold the Jarama - jota and montjuic cos some bad spine injurys have knacked me from riding them. Now only have my Big trailee with its soft suspension and straight back riding position - great for knackered backs and worn out bodys. but still love those Old Orange Italians - so keep in touch with the club and go to a few dos here and there.
It was good to meet you at allenheads hope to see you around somewhere - Jake.

Very sad news

Hi Chaps
Time for a quick introduction. I'm Kate who travelled with Jens (or Atwoke) in South America between May and July 2006.
Unfortunately I'm writing with sad news. Jans was involved in a serious accident at work on Thursday 2nd November and died later that day. HSE are investigating.
I'm trying to contact as many people as possible. Jens loved being involved with Horizons and enjoyed spending time with everyone he met through the site.
If anyone would like to send a message to his family please feel free to contact me so I can pass any messages on.
Thanks
Kate

Jens' Memorial Service

Thank you so much for all your messages. Jens would be so pleased that so many people thought so well of him. I will collate all the messages and pass them on to Jens family.
A memorial service has been arranged for anyone who wishes to attend. It is to be held at the Parish Church in Bellingham, Northumberland at 1.00pm on Thursday 16th November. If anyone is able to attend it would be good to see you however I realise it could be a long journey for most.
We are waiting from word from his family about flowers or donations and I will post another message a soon as I hear anything.
Thank you once again and I will pass on all your messages to Jens family
Best wishes
Kate
