Kent mini meet

Ive been thinking of organising a weekend kent mini meet after going to a northern mini meet & wondered how many would be interested .I know a few pubs that are used to bikers & dont mind camping or i could always use my house(dont expect it to be posh) which has 3 spare bed rooms 2 small gardens for tents & a old 3 birth caravan & is within crawling distance of 3 pubs (i seem to remember reading the 1st UK HU meets were at some ones house). If i could get some feed back of who (if any) would be interested & any activities people might be interested in it would be helpful . Mite be able to get some one to organise a off road (greenlane) ride or could organise a road ride round kent or sussex or could just sit around talk & meet people with the same interests its up to you. Also which dates would be good for people.
Cheers Kev

Hi Kev
Sounds fun. depending on the dates I'd be up for a quick hop across the channel to meet up. I can fill my panniers with and be in Ashford in about 3 hours from where I live
I've got a lot going on in the coming weekends so just let me know when and I can confirm if I can make it. If it's really in the winter , are there any B&B's in the neighbourhood . Camping in the cold and wet isn't something I generally look forward to .... must be getting old

If those who are interested in coming let me know what date's are good for them i will try to fit it around them . Depending on how many want to come if its at a pub i will try to find out about B&Bs close by if its at my place people can use my 3 spare rooms & even the sofas at a push (just bring a sleeping bag) or the old caravan in the garden . I have room for about 7 small 2 man tents in the front & back postage stamp size gardens at a push 8 (but that will mean no room for us to do Yoga Gecko LOL) . B&Bs in Ashford should not be a problem . People can use my kitchen & toilets (even my bathroom if they are feeling brave) like i say my place isnt posh & you might end up sharing a room with the odd bike part or 10. Anyway if people can get back to me i wll try & sort out some dates as i have to work some weekends myself .
Cheers Kev.

mini meet

Hi Kev,

colin from Bournemouth you can put me down for a weekend away. Most weekends are good for me, you can tell us all about your trip to the mountains looking for little disc's.

and it would be good to say hello to Geko again, we meet at the Tesh rally about two years ago. You may remmber me Geko I rode part way home with you on the lanes a chap on his BMW I think from Germany and me on my TT600R.

Any way good luck with the organising Kev, and hopefully we will catch up in the near future.

Colin.

Sounds like the beginning of a plan
Coliln , nice to hear from you - I remember that run back from Tesch very well. We hit lucky with a few real nice trails that day in the sunshine I recall walking through a water section and then having you blast through giving me a good soaking !!!!

Kev,

Some weekends are better than others for me, but if I can make it I will.

Yeah......

Hi Kev et al

count me in although I generally work during the day saturdays, so would have to come along later afternoon/evening, but I'm only about 20-30 mins away.

Cheers

Chris
