Northern Mini Meet...
Just a quick note to let all you northern riders that Chris Bright, Jasper Ditton, and I are having a quiet 'gathering' a pub in the Northern Peaks/East Manchester (venue to be decided....suggestions?) area on the 13th March. It will probably be an early evening 'do', and I'll probably be stopping for food if I can. If anyone is interesed keep an eye on this thread and we'll post a location in the next week or so.

Alternatively if this is your home stomping ground and you want to suggest a location that'd be great too!!

Hope to see a few of you a bit sooner than the Summer. All the best,

Dave Lomax

Would like to come along but 13 march is a monday - work etc cant travel all that way North Northumberland to Manchester for a few hours - could you not make it a fri or sat and maybe a country pub with camping.
I just ran a little meet for 10 - 15 lads like that at The Lion Inn Blakey Ridge North Yorks last month great food, beer and conversation. Stayed just the sat night camping £2.50 made it easy for those to come a bit further. Strangers who are now mates great way to meet new folk.

Monday 13th March is definitely happening.

Having said that, I'd certainly enjoy meeting/camping somewhere in the North. Any suggested weekend dates and locations? Maybe during April?

What do people think?

I will look into something for April. The pub I mention above is nice But also there are several great venues in the Borders that might strike up some interest.

davidlomax 1 Mar 2006 12:52

I can always be persuaded! Just name a date and I'll bring at least one more!

Are there any suggested venues for this meeting yet? Would the Glossop area be a good suggestion or were you thinking of further North or nearer the Manchester suburbs?

Pevrilito 1 Mar 2006 15:45

Greetings all - just thought I'd throw in my keen-ness to attend.

Don't particulalry mind where - just keep us posted when a decision's made


chris 1 Mar 2006 18:04

I have begun a new thread at http://www.horizonsunlimited.com/ubb...ML/000055.html to discuss an April Mini Camping weekend in the North. So if you're keen on something like that, leave a message there.

Glossop area sounds good, although I was thinking of a little further north around Hollingworth. There are some pretty cool pubs around there and its mid way between Chris and I. Would that area be OK for people?


mustaphapint 2 Mar 2006 17:54

Hollingworth is OK with me. There is that quite large pub next to the lake which is quite popular with bikers on a Sunday. Sorry can't remember the name.

davidlomax 3 Mar 2006 17:43

I cant remember the name either but that'd do! I'll go check it out this weekend and post the name on Sunday!

Cheers guys,

See you in a few weeks,

That's the one I was thinking of.

Thats fixed then. Its the Fishermans Inn, Mon 13th from 6:30 onwards. I'll be there having a few beers and some food from then onwards.

Anyone need a lift from the Manchester area? I think we have one space in the car.
