Well hello. again !
I know its been a loooong time since I've posed on here, been a lot going on personally so many been sticking to FB but as things are a bit more settled now thought it time to bring you guys up to date. There are a few on here who do know but for those who dont here are some details of the 2020 Scottish McBASH.
Following the success of previous McBASHes where we were located in Pitlochry and then Killin, this years McBASH will be held in Moffat near the Scottish Borders.
The roads around there are brilliant biking roads, including the famous Beef Tub Ride out which we will be doing on the Saturday Morning.

We will be based in the Annandale Arms Hotel where we have the whole hotel booked, there are a total of 18 rooms and at the moment we have 12 booked so there is still space for another 6, each room is a double/twin but are also available as singles.

As with all McBASHes, everyone will meet up for breakfast together in the hotel and also for the evening meal, we will have the dining room to ourselves so as with previous ones its a good time for everyone to shoot the sit for the day and then head to the bar ! This was from the Pitlochry McBASH.

As mentioned there will be a Saturday Morning ride out and then on the Sunday a full days ride around the area.

Be good to see some more BIRD members coming along, as this years event is not that far from Englandshire, I am hoping we will see some more you joining us.

There is an active Facebook page with all the update details but if you fancy coming and want to ask me anything just drop me a line or three !

Hi guys, just wanted to let you all know that our Hotel has just told me that we are all able to stay for this weekend so basically the 2020 McBASH is ON !
The hotel has 18 rooms and so far we have booked 12 although we also have the whole hotel to ourselves so if anyone would like to join us, it should be a cracking weekend and a brilliant way to end lockdown !!
Just let me know if anyone wants a room or any other questions.

Well guys, we only have 1 room left for anyone wanting to join us at the end of August and we already have the hotel to ourselves.
Even in these difficult times its good to have a meeting with fellow BB owners and you all get a free face covering if you come !!109571780_10157007240621353_5492856493551459038_o.jpg

Unfortunately because of the latest spikes in the virus I have had to cancel theMcBASH which is a real bummer. Thought we were ok but too many things happening now and as we have guys from all over the UK and Ireland planning to come it was too much of a risk so its been cancelled. However the hotel has pencilled us in for the same weekend next year so if you want to come in 2021 nows your chance !

I wasn’t going to be able to attend, but I’m sad for everyone who had this pencilled on their calendar.
