    We are really looking forward to the OBash and Damien is doing a great job of organising all sorts for the weekend.

    I was then starting to think I should get my ass into gear about next years McBASH and I've had some ideas that would make it different again !

    Cant say too much until I get some things confirmed but it would involve being based somewhere other than Fyvie so the roads would be totally different to what the previous McBASH's have been, they say variety is the spice of life so hopefully it will be true !

    :yo:

    Count us in, was going to tour Scotland this year... So going to postpone 'till 2016...
    So, we'll be using the motorhome, so just somewhere to park up please, back of vale?. Book us for all meals x 2 please.
    That way OUR (lol) room will be free for those that need it.

    Well guys, the thought I was having (always dangerous) was to re-locate the McBASH to Oban !

    Not definite yet of course but been speaking to a hotel over there who could take us all in, they take bikers anyway, he has a bar and serves bar food. They also have a dining room (a left over from when they served full meals) that they could let us use like we did at the Vale.

    Reason I was thinking of moving it was to see some different roads and maybe make it more attractive to anyone wanting to see that side of the Country.

    Only thing would be that although I could keep the cost of the accommodation down, I wouldn't be able to include the meals (other than brekky) like I do at the Vale.

    Having said that, I have just got their bar menu (attached) which is cheap as chips !

    There are plenty of places to eat in Oban as well so I can look at that as well, but its just a start for thoughts.

    Anyway its open to discussion so any thoughts would be appreciated (keep them clean please!!)

    You sure those prices are not children's meals.
    Looks like I'll need to find a camp site or similar nearby?
    Keep us informed Russ...

    Well, option would be trailer bike to yours, swap to your trailer, 2 bikes??, then wobble box up, bike tour from a couple of sites either before or after Mcbash.

    Just checked, asked if there was room for a Motorhome, trailer, etc.

    His reply was.

    there are car parks to the front and rear of the hotel and if you are riding bikes there should be more than enough room for the trailer.
    I went out and counted the car spaces ? eleven at the front and fourteen in the back.

    Motorhome is 7.25M and trailers about 3.25M.
    Just need a 'camping/pitch' cost.

    I'd be looking at Yvonne taking the Wobble box up, with me on the bike actually RIDING IT :eek: as the electrics have now ALL been replaced, again, and I am getting better, just the shoulder and arthritic hands to contend with now, so will up the Tramadols and parasetamol for the trip!! :eek:
    Still a bit concerned about the midges though :dunno:




    I'm not sure Russ was telling us the truth, when he said the Midges were all going on holiday to Fyvie!! don't tell him, but I think he was fibbing!! h1d1ng2

    Pencil me n Jules in Russ. Won't know till nearer the time if Jules can make it though, her work are getting to be a right pita. But she might have been made redundant by then, or just left.

    I actually bought a few bottles of the stuff years ago when Mr Porky, suggested a Scottish bash as I'd heard all sorts of horror story's about those little buggers, "Midges not Scotsmen" :eek: so will search them out and put a bottle under the seat in my new "cubby hole"!! :-0)

    Right time to dip the toes in the water, would you lot accept staying at this place in Oban, if you paid a discounted rate of ?50 pp for B&B for 3 nights (total) ?

    I'm going to provisionally book 15 rooms because I can get them at todays rates so let me know your thoughts on the cost ?

    If you check it out on Google Maps you will see what a great spot its in, mind you if you want a sea view it'll cost you more !
