Its a full house !
This years meeting is sure to be the biggest and best yet!
A whole army (well 4) has been working hard behind the scenes to bring you the best possible meeting.
We got 6 specialist stall holders, 5 green lane rideouts, and loadsa people arriving from all corners of the globe - the British Isles, South Africa, Romania, Canada, America, Germany, Holland, Belgium, France, Portugal, Australia and more. All on varied bikes, the GS range of BMW's being the most popular followed by Hondas, Yamahas and a fair few KTM's.
Lots of speakers on varied topics from the deserts of NW Africa (Tiffany Coates) to the plains of America (David Lomax)and winds of Patagonia,(Brian Coles) some of them so fresh back from their trips, they still have Yak dung on their tyres. Some are experienced speakers ranging from Ted Simon and Austin Vince to nervous rookies Jo-Anne Smith and Mark Manley.
As well as the shows several people have volunteered to lead a breakout session on specific subjects.
A full timetable is now on the website and what we want you to do is to pick and choose which show you wish to see.
Nearly everyone seems to be camping though I gather there are still rooms to be had in the area. Camping is behind the pub on a flat grassy field and with a new overflow area there's plenty of space for all of us
We will have flushing loos near the camping site.
New for this year is a movie. 'The Motorcycle Diaries' will play after the last presentation on the Saturday night.
There is a restaurant on site with a carvery on the Saturday and Sunday and a buffet Saturday evening,as well as breakfast and snacks available during Friday and all day Saturday.
You don't need to bring anything except a fistful of cash (just like being on the road) maybe a printout of the timetable. If you have any suitable items to dress either of the rather plain rooms we would appreciate that - sorry bikes not allowed in !
Its gonna be a glorious weekend !
See you soon !
Landrovers,Bicycles,Horses,Handgliders and hot air balloonists are all most welcome but may be frowned upon by some...
Remember this is THE motorcycle travellers meeting of the year !
