Thumbs up Scottish Campfire Mini Meet 2013

Hi HUBBERS!

Well... it's time for another Scottish Campfire Mini Meet!

This will be an informal meet with a few tents, a campfire (with tarp for bad weather protection!), and a ride out on the Saturday.


WHEN...

Friday 18th October - Sunday 20th October


LOCATION & COSTS...

Pillars of Hercules Camping (& Organic Farm).
Falkland, Cupar, KY15 7AD.
Website : Camping at the Pillars

£7 per person per night with a motorbike OR £8 per person per night with a car.

As per last year the campsite requires a £100 deposit for group bookings although we learned at last years Scottish Campfire Mini Meet that Pillars of Hercules was put as ease by people booking and paying ahead of the meet which resulted in us not having to put down the deposit.

SO... PLEASE BOOK your camping pitch directly with the campsite by Quoting "HUBB MEET in the Bankings Field" on
01337 857 749 or by emailing bruce@pillars.co.uk. You need to state how many people are coming by bike (£7pppn) or by car (£8pppn), if your staying on Fri night only / Sat night only or BOTH nights and give a contact telephone number. Thank you!


Please also let us know that your coming along so we know who to look out for and remember that if you want to get set up in daylight then you'll want to be there by 6-6:30pm!


OTHER FACILITIES...

Pillars of Hercules Vegi Cafe : 10am-5pm. (They have very nice cakes!)
Dont miss out on lovely organic food from our Cafe!

Pillars of Hercules Farm shop :9-6pm Pillars of Hercules - Shop Information Page


CAMPFIRE...

If you have space then please bring a few logs for the fire or if not then a few pounds to buy some from the campsite. We will forage for wood but we will need some dry kindling & firewood to get the fire started on both nights!


Looking forward to seeing some old faces and meeting new friends,

Beej n Chris

of these warm continental evenings we have been experiencing of late.

Hmmm..................

Hi Beej, not sure what you have heard but the Bull Buggering incident was a simple misunderstanding between me and the farmers daughter plus it was dark, it could have happened to any one.
The clubhouse and the fire brigade happened only because Ted said we had run out of firewood and it seemed like a great idea at the time. ( I had run out of medication two days earlier)
The sheep and barbecue affair came about when some one mentioned there are no burgers left, lets spit roast a sheep. The RSPCA saw the funny side and did not press charges and the sheep seemed happy enough.

I have never been a member of the Waffen SS and my birth certificate contrary to popular belief does not have "created on the Death Star" in the place of birth section. Most, but not all of the other stuff is true

See you on site

GM

You may find parts of Scotland are near your garage, just not this particular part

Hi Beej
Great effort to keep your mini meet thing going every year around this time.
This year again I will be in Ethiopia around that time. Sorry I wont be able to make it.

Just returned from Norway on sunday after 2 weeks on the bike. Great experience and good miles. But very expensive though.

Best wishes.

Membership - help keep us going!

Horizons Unlimited is not a big multi-national company, just two people who love motorcycle travel and have grown what started as a hobby in 1997 into a full time job (usually 8-10 hours per day and 7 days a week) and a labour of love. To keep it going and a roof over our heads, we run events all over the world with the help of volunteers; we sell inspirational and informative DVDs; we have a few selected advertisers; and we make a small amount from memberships.

You don't have to be a Member to come to an HU meeting, access the website, or ask questions on the HUBB. What you get for your membership contribution is our sincere gratitude, good karma and knowing that you're helping to keep the motorcycle travel dream alive. Contributing Members and Gold Members do get additional features on the HUBB. Here's a list of all the Member benefits on the HUBB.
