5th Northern/1st South West Scotland Mini Meet
Hi All

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 (beer, 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.

I will try and attend as that is my only free weekend next month.

Jake 19 Sep 2007 21:28

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.

MikeS 19 Sep 2007 21:36

Sounds good, count me in. I really need something to take my mind off the fact that I've only been home a week and somehow I'm going back to work tomorrow!!

Joe C90 19 Sep 2007 21:38

Hi all!
Would love to make it, but am having my knee re-strung this weekend at last. no driving etc for at least a month (time for servicing the fleet though), so have a good time!

Debz 20 Sep 2007 07:46

Hi guys

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.

Will post directions/GPS stuff nearer the time.

if possible, get him referred by the doc to a specialist called Nic London at the yorkshire knee clinic. Knee Clinic UK, Knee Clinic Yorkshire, Private Knee Clinic UK: Yorkshire Knee Clinic UK
He does some NHS stuff, this is the guy doing my surgery and all the professionals rate him.
Any questions on all this, ask me, I have been doing my homework!!!

Be warned, the surgery has a long recovery time, and with delays in getting it organised, means a full year from doc to fixed.

Hi, We would like to come to this. Perhaps even both of us on bikes this time! Can't confirm yet but definitely interested.

Smccarth 6 Oct 2007 08:53

Sorebums will be there
Simon, Georgie and Oscar will be there in our camper van. Looking forward to finally meeting up again.


Debz 10 Oct 2007 07:48

Hi All

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 beer in and share the costs? Can you let us know please.

Looking forward to seeing you all.



SIMONP 10 Oct 2007 12:12

We will be there
Upon Fritz & Bevs recommendation, please count Gerry, Robert and Simon in for the weekend.

Chilli sounds great, happy to bring own booze though, i think


Fritz 10 Oct 2007 14:39

Yes Please
Hi Debz.
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.

Brian E 11 Oct 2007 02:37
