Beej - itll be good to see you again and the rest of the Edinburgh crew that's coming down.

Anyone reading this that may be put off coming along by the off-roading bit, it is not compulsary. Last time there was a few of us that weren't up for off-roading after the Friday night so we drank tea a little longer and then went for a lovely road ride. In fact, you don't even have to do that if you don't want to. It's just a great chance to meet up with like minded people, have a chat, a drink and a laugh.

See you all there.

They have room for camping and accomodation, pricing is as follows:

Camping: £5 per person, per night (No open fires allowed)

B+B: £35 per person, per night

They will do brekkies for us campers, price will be about £6.

Anyone wanting to book a room should phone The Green Dragon direct (01969 667392) and ask for Yvonne or Stuart.

Fritz - if it's wintry and you're away in the hills sledging, does Bev go with you or will she come and meet us? I do hope you both come along.

So, all those in favour, say aye!

Debz

Yahoo cant you make it over later on saturday then you will get you will get to meet everyone and have a pint and a chat, most of us will be a little bit wobbly bye then and the chat may be slightly none-sensible to anyone not as wobbly but be nice to see you all the same. Sunday is often a recovering and packing up day with as Brian said for the foolhardy a short off road ride out maybe !
