So do I come on my Harley or Gold wing, for breakfast?
And, do I need to fill up at Morrison's in Cromer?
Holt road to Cromer?

Ride out will be starting at about 10:30..
DO NOT EAT BREAKFAST !!!! :-0)

First stop will be quite early and will be at a yank 50's style dinner @tu*

And I hope they can cope with more than 5 people turning up at once, as when the last people to get served, tends to be as everyone else is mounting up and ready to go!! :dunno:

As long as you think you can get from one of the above mentioned to Thetford, then do the ride out on top without filling up agin that would be your choice!! g0551p c7u8

That reminds me !

Here is the full itinerary :

Welcome to the Thetford Bash !

This weekend is about two things

Enjoying your self and raising a few quid for Air Ambulance


Please do not park on the rugby pitches and avoid even walking on the main one out side the club house.. Do not park right near the club house as it gets pretty loud and tends to go on quite late


A Rough guide to what is happening ( Times will proly vary as nothing is set in stone )


Friday

1) Arrive and get settled

2) If you are going on the bike ride out go fill up with petrol !!

2) Fish supper at the Rugby club.. This is from 8PM, please bring eating irons if possible


Saturday

1) More arrivals and settling in !

2) Again, if you intend going on the ride out please go fill up with petrol

3) Ride out. We will be using the drop off system of out riders. Please see Jaws or Clive ( Silver Fox ) if you are unsure about this. Slower riders at the front please, quicker ones at the back

4) 7.30pm ( ish ) Music time ! Presenting The Rex Factor !!

5) 8.30 ( ish ) the charity auction will start. Please bring your items and lots of lolly !

6) 10.00pm music is back on the case !


For those who are not going on the ride out Thetford town offers a wonderful place to visit,, with both ancient and modern history. There is a ‘Dads Army’ museum ( the program was made here in the town to a great extent ! ), the Ancient House, Button Island, River Walk, the Thomas Paine history ( he who wrote the ‘Rights Of Man’ which stirred up those pesky ‘A merkans’ in to revolt !! ) plus many more great places all around the area

If you fancy a bit of a ramble, just across the A134 from the camp site is the river which runs all the way in to Thetford. It is about 2 miles and is quite a tough walk.

See Jaws or one of the other ‘locals’ for more details


Sunday ( very laid back.. Do what will fit in ! )

1) Breakfast until about 9.30 to 10.00

2) Say Hello circle. Come get in the circle and say hello to everyone else

3) 11.00 First heats of moped racing. Even if you are not having a go, come and cheer your friends !

4) The SPECIAL bike. .Can you ride a pedal cycle ? Can you ride THIS one ! ?

5) Semi finals and finals of moped racing

6) Silly games !!

7) at some time around here lunch will be served for those that ordered one

8) Impromptu musical session

9) Ped racing winners cup presented

10) Thank you’s !

11 ) Impromptu musical session


Monday

1) Time to start packing up

2) Sad goodbye’s and farewell’s

3) Anyone left who can assist, help clear up the field with me !

4) Sad goodbye’s and farewell’s



As they say, ‘der management’ hopes you had a great time and would like to thank one and all for ‘coming on down’ !

Someone will want to know why the slower riders to the front, faster to the rear, :dunno:

It's always harder to keep up at the back, if traffic breaks the convoy, then occasionally a "spirited" ride is required to catch up again, unlike in the past where "some" :wank: just decided to go at a snails pace and got people lost!! also EVERYONE needs to keep an eye open for the experienced drop off bikes passing you, heading back up to the front. @tu*

If your not happy with the pace of the ride, let John know, ASAP though the lead riders tend to ride at a more sedate pace!! :dunno:

So, as I've volunteered, 8rfl@, if I'm tail end charlie on the ride out I'll be wearing an orange tabbard... So those dropped off to mark the turn must not leave their post until I see you.

Are you allowed to ride it no handed?

I used to be quite good at riding without hands....

You can do what ever you want..
So far, in the past three years, only about 3 people have been successful !
