12th IOCUK Summer Meet - 29th to 31st August.

Post  Mick on Wed 27 May 2015, 07:33

Ok folks, the next IOCUK Summer Meet in August is going to be in  North Wales and
organised by Dave (Sparks). Now to get a decent price for the hotel and to stop
the buggars putting the price up as soon as they see a load of new bookings we
are not going to tell you which hotel it is, just that at this very moment the
price is £106 for a double room for 2 nights (August 29th to 31st) and Dave is
going to do block bookings of 9 rooms at a time online. Please be aware that the
£106 booking fee is the "non refundable" price.

So Dave now needs to know who is DEFINITELY coming. We don't want any "Im not
sure" or "I might be coming", it HAS to be a DEFINITELY COMING and being able
to pay as soon as possible.

Please also be aware that after Dave books the first 9 rooms that the second lot
of bookings MAY or MAY NOT go up slightly, we have never done it this way before
so we can't be certain.

Dave did contact the hotel, but to reserve the rooms they wanted £132 per
room, so we hope to beat this by doing it online for £106.

Please PM "Sparks" (Dave) and let him know if your coming, NOT myself.

If this turns out as hoped it should be a fantastic weekend. We have never done North Wales
before and there are some awesome roads around there, and I know for a fact that Dave already
has a cracking rideout planned that has not to be missed!. thumb

Thanks for posting this up Mick  thumb

OK campers we're already up to 13 rooms which need to be booked, had loads of text messages off members to confirm they're coming, now if your not sure you are attending you can book the other rate which allows you to cancel nearer the day which is at this precise moment £138 so the choice is yours, it's just for the rooms remember but we will have pubs, restaurants etc all within easy reach, we'll try and sort summat out with a local establishment with regards to getting a room booked for the evening meals if ya like.

Never done anything like this before so it's a big learning curve so bare with us and hopefully we'll get a good deal for all of us, we'll be looking at booking very soon coz they will try and bump the price up.

We'll pay up front the full amount of the room booking fee ( It's called good old fashioned trust )  and you can pay us back and we'll pay MBNA back god bless em.

As far as im aware 18 rooms have now been booked and paid for. The price has now gone up
to £138 for the 2 nights. Im guessing that Dave will "not" be booking any more rooms on his card
and therefore if anyone else wants to attend they may have to sort it out themselves ? :dont-know:

The hotel is the Travelodge at Colwyn Bay. thumb

Don't shoot the messenger, im just posting what I know. wink

As Mick has said the minute we hit the magic 18 we had to go for it as it was showing limited rooms so it was first ( definite ) come first served I'm afraid, but we are going up there tomorrow to have a scout around to see if we can find any deals with B & B's that are nearby but if you find one in the meantime and they have more rooms available feel free to share the info on this thread wink

The price came back as £110 per room so we hope your all ok with that, I'll message all concerned to let you know.

We'll let you know how to pay as soon as possible, if you have any preferences on how to pay pm us.

We need a lie down now

Excellent job Dave. Looking forwards to this as I missed that forst rideout with you and Vermin thanks to coming off the bike and snapping a footpeg off before we even set off properly. Big respect to Dave for keeping me cool and calm in what was my first motorcycle accident.....from what Vermin and Dave said...It's a cracking rideout up that neck of the woods.
Let me know how to pay you Dave....Pop in for a cuppa mate any time you're in the area.

I'm in too! PM with Sparks....

As well as being my first chance to meet the club's finest representatives, this will also be my first "weekender" on a bike that doesn't have panniers for the "luggage". (1st world problems, I know...)

Any tips / tricks for ache-free riding to and from the hotel? (It'll be about 100+ miles each way.)
I was thinking of a tank bag and a small rucksack with chest straps? Any improvements on that? (Happily point me at another forum if this is not the right place to discuss!)

Sorry if all that sounds a bit lame, but I do find those distances a challenge without luggage anyway, unless I can stop every hour for a "coffee"... ;)


Cheers,
Paul.

Nice one son see ya there.

Get yerself a Cobra formed rack if yer riding solo, bit pricey for a piece of pressed steel but does the job, got one for our's and it worked a treat going to the Belgium meet last year, used a Kriega R25 rucksack and found that to be very comfortable but I know what you mean about the lack of panniers.
