    Just this minute had confirmation the Rugby Club has accepted our booking for next year..

    As usual, it is the last bank holiday weekend in May and will run from Friday the 24th until Monday the 27th..

    Friday night, chinese buffet ( book closer to the time )

    Saturday rideout or walkabout depending on what you want to do

    Saturday night a band, and the usual charity auction to raise lolly for Air Ambulance

    At least one band for Saturday night, and a sort of amateur band on Sunday night .. The guys do all the old favorites that people like to join in with !!

    Sunday silly games ( Couple of new ones this year hopefully.. a push bike that steers the wrong way !!

    A Sunday roast can be ordered at the club house

    Fast food will be available all day Saturday and Sunday from the club house

    Aint got any costings yet but providing we get support as usual it should be a tenner a head with all children up to 15 ( and disabled dependants of any age ) free.

    As the year before last was such a massive success mixing in the motorhome lot, I will be doing it again .. So a chance to meet up with friends made at the last Bash

    I fancy this one, but as it falls on SWMBOs birthday I fear there may be a casting vote. She does pillion though so it may be a favourable vote. TBC.... watch this space.

    Can we bring the Caravan John, if Plan B has to apply (rugrats)??

    yes mate.. In fact an awful lot of folk do arrive with snails..
    This is actually a mixed meet with a motorhome club that I set up.. The first Mixed Bash was in 2010 and it was a real cracker.

    Most of the peeps with motorhomes are in fact ex bikers and in fact ( and I am ashamed to say it ! ) more of them joined in the silly games than the more reserved ( !!! 8rfl@ ) people from BIRD !

    Hopefully I will have the 'racing mopeds' back up and running again and of course there should be some trophies to win too

    Aint had any luck with a band yet but I guess it is early days

    Already, 7 months from the event, we already have about 40 folk from the motorhome guys booked, and the same from BIRD ..@tu*

    Judging by the total lunacy of the last one we did, this is gonna end up absolutely mega !!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
