25th to 27th August 2018 Bank Holiday Meet

Post  mrs spook on Fri 12 Jan 2018, 20:34

Well, that's the May Meet well on it's way, Italy being sorted, now is the time to think about the August meet.

Is there any volunteers out there that would like to hold this meet? It would be good if it was towards the north, please let me know or post any ideas on here.

I'm more than happy to help out...

Dunno about arranging as my workload is always very hectic (hence not being able to make the May event) but if I can help in anyway and i'm free, please count me in!

Sorry I have not kept up with this but our grandson contracted meningitis and we needed to deal with that first, but he is on the mend now.

Hammy has mentioned that he would be looking at hotels but would struggle with the ride out, pdn has also said he may be able to help, motorbikemad (are you in the area too?) and also hillwalker may be able to help. I am not sure if they are all local to one another but perhaps you could get together and let me know if any of you have managed to source a hotel. It would be nice to get something sorted before the May meet, I wait to hear from you all.

Post  fairweatherrider on Tue 06 Feb 2018, 18:52

Right guys and gals Annette Smith has given me some hotel names today and I've done some phoning around unfortunately the august bank holiday weekend is also the weekend of the Leeds festival so the prices offered aren't  brilliant

Craiglands hotel at ilkley £110 per night discounted to £80 per night b&b


South Milford hotel right next to squires junction 42 A1 £90 per night b&b


East ayton country house hotel near Scarborough starting price £99 per night b&b
But can discount when we confirm the amount of rooms required this hotel will
allow us to have a band, will section of an area in the car park just for the club
Car park covered by cctv.
They can also cater for the evening either off the restaurant menu or they can do a set menu with 3 to 4 choices for us

your thoughts please

Just looked on their website, £142.50 for bed and breakfast looks a bit steep, or is that for two nights?

I would hope that £142 is for 2 nights Ian, but no idea mate.  If it is, then thats
not bad, we tend to pay on average around the £120 mark for 2 nights.

Maybe Vic will know ?.

Wouldn't have thought they would knock nearly  £60 off .
Perhaps we may be better looking in the south of the county, Sheffield Chesterfield area some good rides round there.
North Yorkshire is always going to be dear in August with the national park's etc

Please put me down for a room too! It's for single occupancy but I'd prefer a double bed or larger if they have capacity. thumb

In terms of contributing to the work of organising / preparing for the weekend, I don't know the area, though I have ridden nearby a few times (Scarborough's ~100 miles away, so not exactly on my doorstep), but happy to spend time helping when work calms down from April / May onwards (I will have some free weekends over the spring / summer).

I realise that might sound a bit lame but it's the best I can do at the moment. Is there a todo list anywhere of what still needs doing in case I can chip in for any of them?


Cheers,
Paul.

As for the ride, as the other said, it's a bit of a trek for a recce but i'll do what I can when the weekends are free, as I can always bomb over there on the GSX for a scout around to see if there are any nice stop off points.

Post  fairweatherrider on Sat 17 Feb 2018, 01:30

The club is currently in discussion with East Ayton Lodge hotel about booking a number of rooms and a room rate with them for the August Bank Holiday Meet.
We started booking as a club because the meets were  becoming more popular and members were finding it increasingly difficult to find accommodation at reasonable rates.
Can I ask that club members refrain from contacting the hotel or booking their own accomodation at this venue as this could reduce the number of rooms available to the club and could also affect the room rate offered to us.
Sue Whittaker the club meet coordinater has all the details of the negotiations to date and will be contacting the hotel to continue discussing arrangements with them please allow her the time and courtesy  to complete the task in hand anyone wishing to attend the meet please contact Sue and she will add you to the list which will reserve you a room when negotiations are completed.

Thank you for your cooperation

Regards

Vic (fairweatherrider )

Just catching up - been busy with work - I'm based in Pickering, so reasonably familiar with the area. Happy to suggest routes and local attractions, though not done much group riding, so someone with more experience might want to vet my suggestions....

Work's very busy at the moment, so my availability will be a bit patchy - please let me know if I can help.

I've said this before and been vilified for it but I'll say it again.

If you have never been on one of the summer meets, you will honestly love it, we have
a lot of good crack and piss taking etc and once you have been to one its very hard to
not attend more of them. Personally I will be missing my 1st ever summer meet down
in Kent and I am a bit bummed about it. It will be only 7 to 10 days after im officially
allowed to drive (not sure about riding) after having my new hip and its a 6 hour + run
for me, so maybe pushing it a bit, but Sheila & myself will definitely be at this August
meeting. thumb dance
