Not being in the RAF I suspect that the location of RAF Digby is the reason for the number of arabic speakers?

So has anyone any suggestions for somewhere to meet then?

In the absence of earlier suggestions, can I propose the Coach and Horses in Hemmingby. Aside from being a great pub and one which does decent plain pub grub, it has the personal advantage that it's my closest decent pub!

Over to yous........

There must be loads of options for this proposed meet. Could I put forward The Chequers at Potterhanworth as an option?

This is excellent!
I get to find out all the good pubs in Lincolnshire.

Coach and Horses in Hemingby
The Chequers at Potterhanworth (just down the road from me)

Keep it up, please.

The Bustard in Rauceby used to have great live jazz and an excellent landlord but sadly he retired to Lincoln. Haven't heard such good things about it recently.

By the way, Potterhanworth is a good place for sprockets etc. It's the home of B&C Express.

Free advertising, great. Keep it up it, might keep me in a job longer

The Pyewipe is now back in the ownership of Bob and Sarah Pickles, the same people that own The Chequers and also The Pennyfarthing at Timberland.

Anyone know what the Royal Oak at Scopwick is like now?

Hey people,

Sorry I've not replied for a while, been rushing around trying to get everything sorted for my impending trip.

I like the idea of the Pyewipe Inn, but I don't think they offer camping no? They do have rooms, but they are bloody expensive.

The pub in Scopwick used to be good, but not been for a couple of years.

The Coach and Horses could be a possibility, if there is camping?

Do it, being a fan of old/unsuitable/underpowered bikes myself, I wholeheartedly encourage it. My girlfriend and I will be popping along on our brand new (to us) CG125.

Perhaps you should start a new rally for the most unsuitable machines possible?

On second thoughts.... the manufacturers have built so many already, practically all sports bikes and most super motos etc are nearly useless for distance and are crap for luggage!

Have ordered new clutch plates and springs for the Bullet, as the massive increase in power from the high comp piston has found the clutch wanting!
te he!

Just let us know the venue, camping is best!
Cheers

Just got back from a Lincolnshire tootle - went past Brandy Wharf Cider Centre ... looks a potential for a meet.
Camp site across the road and what looks like a decent hostelry by the riverside.
I've never been before and don't like cider

Things seem to have gone a little quiet on this thread, are there any more ideas as to where and when people would like to meet up?

A few good pubs have been suggested, including the lastest one of the Brandy Wharf.

I am quite happy with any of the suggested locations.
