?80 is fine with me Russ, doubt jules will get involved at Lochtar, she'll just take pics again.
Route for Sunday sounds similar to what Jules and I did after walking Hamish for Roddy in 2011:-0)

How about getting some plates made up to put on top of our bike plates saying something like,

I'm a McBasher,
making
progress

or

Russ says it's
ok to go
this fast!!


or

Police pursuit
practice
convoy

:-0) just an idea, :dunno: anyone got any other suggestions barring "THAT" one!! :t:rolleyes:

I like the sound of that Ian. But best not to name names. Dont think Russ would be best pleased taking all our points.

Room for one more? I have a 'maybe' who is keen to tag along. I'll check with him next week.

Plenty of room in the Marquee !!

Either that or you can share a room at the B&B and split the cost with your mate ?

Sandra has a Family Room with an en suite apparantly so you could take that ??

:eek:

Russ can you tell me what all this activity at Lochtar is about?

2013 was ...
a gentle ride round on go-carts
shot gunning wee small plastic discs
playing at Robin Hood
and taking the piss out of each other on Segways....

all for fun you understand... completely non competative of course

:-0)

Happy New Year fellow McBASHERS !!

As its the first day of 2014 I've been looking at the Sunday Ride out and have decided to change the previous Route to take more smaller picturesque roads into it and the result is a shorter route than usual but with a couple of interesting stops on the way which I hope you'll like !

I am aiming to keep off the mad blast roads because I felt it was a bit like that last year so this years roads are more scenic and twister as well !!

More details soon !!

As I am getting more requests, the state of play regarding attendees so far confirmed and where they are staying, so far, is:


The Vale
Ian and Yvonne
Clive and Gina
Hugh and Jules
Si and Sarah
Lisa and Al


In the Marquee
Kenny & Brenda
Keith
Mark
Tim


In the Turriff British Legion
Grant + 1
Andyxx +1
Rob & Nikki
Dave (TAFFY) + Ros (NEW)
Colin
Peter
John
Damien
Scott
Roy

Assuming everyone above manages to come that will be 30 including me and Janice!!

If thats how many do come then that will far exceed the most we've had and to be honest I reckon we couldn't take any more (except the one person who just asked!)

So unless anyone above drops out I'm afraid the 2014 McBASH is officially full !!

It may well be that as most people dont want to Camp, next year (2015) we will have to put those camping this year into rooms as the cost of the Marquee won't justify just 3 or 4 tents but thats something we need to discuss at this years event so for those camping, let me know your thoughts (PM if you prefer!!) but this year the Marquee will definately be there.

A tent within a tent is a nice, new luxury to me. I could just manage with just the one tent to be 'onest. @tu*

Youre ok this year Tim !!

For the cost of the Marquee it would be cheaper for me to pay for those in there in a B&B !!

But like I say, if there are more tenting next year we may keep it but will need to discuss with those who usually camp before any decision, after all it is a democracy !!
