Right, after a weekend over around Oban and after speaking to the hotel, I'm afraid we will be reverting back to the usual McBASH weekend which has always been the first weekend in September. Our problem is we can't definitely book specific rooms because we don't know who's coming (other than the odd 1 or 2) and as I've asked for possibly 15 rooms, they can't put that many aside on a Bank Holiday weekend, if we only ended up with 10 then 5 rooms will be unoccupied so they can't take the risk. Its ok for the 1st weekend in September so I'm afraid we will have to go for that one. We only tried to have the McBASH (not the OBASH) 1 bank holiday weekend before and many couldn't manage because they were taking time with their families so we changed it back to the following weekend which is what we will have to do next year so apologies for anyone can't manage. Having looked around the Hotel is really is a big improvement on the Vale and everyone can get in the same place (Vale only has 5 rooms) and the owner seems really keen for use to get in there, they are used to bikes. While we were there, we had a good run around the roads and I've decided we are going back to basics so there will be no 'Activity' on the Sunday, those roads are far too good and so the plan now is for a short run on the Saturday and anyone wanting to spend time in Oban (5 mins walk from Hotel) can do in the morning, followed by a run in the afternoon, then the Sunday will be a fantastic run on these stunning roads. Been a while since we've been over there and didn't realise how damn good they were ! So I've taken down the Poll and copied this to a separate thread which I will update as time goes on.
