We've had a code update on the HUBB that should fix any issues with the new right hand column. If the HUBB "looks funny" or is too narrow with the Forum description squished up, please force a refresh to get the latest code update. (Hold down the shift OR ctrl key, and click the refresh button on your browser, OR Ctrl R, OR on Macs, Command R). If you still have a problem please post it here.
You will notice the slight change in title, that's because we have been offered the most fabulous location to hold this mini meet, in the beautiful South West of Scotland, about 12 miles north west of Dumfries, it's not too far over the border. (I am a Scottish lass living in Northumberland and I actually live slightly further north than this location!)
Our hosts for the weekend will be Andy & Maya, some of you may have went to their talk at Ripley to hear about their sidecar trip in South America. The meet will be on the weekend of 27th/28th October - apologies to those who have already said they can't make that weekend.
They have plenty room for any number of people who would like to attend, just bring your tent as normal. Food will be provided over the weekend and the costs shared between those who attend. They are prepared to organise the drink (, lager) for Friday & Saturday night but we will need to know what your tipple is. If you would prefer to bring your own, that's ok just let us know.
There are plenty good roads and gravel trails in the vicinity for a ride out and the scenery is beautiful.
I hope that you can come along and that we might get a few of the Scottish brigade coming along.
If interested, please post and let us know so we have numbers.
Debz hope you get a few more going up - I will be coming up maybe even with Helen but I doubt i will be doing any off-roading this time round. As for drinks I will bring my own. Is the camping in a field/farm/garden or what -are fires allowed etc. just so I know for cooking and moreso for keeping warm in the evenings more so if we are sitting outside at the end of october its can be chilly and damp up there. Jake.
alec if you want to break your run up your welcome to stay over at mine on thursday evening or on the way back if it helps you out. Jake.
Jake - it's at Andy & Maya's house and they have a pretty big garden for us to camp in but if required they have the use of the field next to the house. They have a campfire which will keep us all warm in the evening. In the event of dodgy weather, they are hoping to have a newly erected garage which can be used as shelter. Plan is to lay on food/cook for everyone, if folks are happy with that. It'll be good to see you both again.
MikeS - looking forward to hearing about your travels.
Andy - glad to hear you're getting your knee sorted. Iain still not been to see about his yet, we had hoped to be moved by now and he was waiting to register with docs but it has gone on + on....but moving next weekend (fingers crossed) so will get him to the docs then. Hope everything goes well for you.
Is everyone that has said they are coming or shown interest happy to be cooked for (probably big pan of chilli or the like and brekkie stuff to) and share the costs? Or would you prefer to cook your own? Can you also advise re booze - will you bring your own or will we get a few slabs of in and share the costs? Can you let us know please.
Bev y Fritz for food - big Dutch apple pie pleeaaase Maya ;-)
Bev y Fritz for Beer (brown rather than yellow preferred for Fritz, Bev is Guiness drinker but we will drink either if push comes to shove, or we can bring in if easier? What ever is easiest for hosts)
Happy to assist if we can. Many thanks to all involved.
