Hi All

Dirt Bike Dave has bullied me into putting up the dates and details for Big Mac 2013 and here they are

Venue - OBAN - West coast of Scotland

RIDEOUT Day 1 - Saturday 3rd August
RIDEOUT Day 2 - Sunday 4th August


MASTER LIST - HERE link


Accommodation
-------------
As with previous years we are looking to book hostel accommodation and SYHA Oban is one of the best Hostels SYHA has to offer.

Have a look see - http://www.syha.org.uk/hostels-in-scotland/highlands/oban.aspx

Unfortunately due to the time of year we want to book we need to get our skates on to get this booked up.

Accommodation is likely to be dorms (bunk beds) for 4, 6 or 8.

We've worked out it will be £80 for hostel stay for 3 nights
This will include cost of (self-catering) breakfast and whatever is left over will contribute to evening meals / drinks etc.


Important stuff
---------------
Great roads
Great food
Great pubs
Great people
Great craic
Great weekend
Great weather.....hopefully Smile


What I need from you
--------------------

Do you wanna go?
Do you wanna stay in the hostel - Friday 2nd August for 3 nights?

For folks wishing to stay in the hostel - looking for commitment by the end of this month (Feb 2013) and £20 deposit paid 1st week in March.

A further £20 deposit 1st June and the final payment (£40) 1st July.

Staying at the hostel isn't compulsory and folks are free to sign up for the rideout and sort their own accommodation.

Subject to availability & numbers and we may be able to add people at a later date but the earlier you can commit the better as there are limited spaces.

I'll set up a Master List soon.

Dirt Bike Dave is doing a recce soon so will leave the finer details in his culpable capable hands.

Cheers
Rosco

Would love to take part but as the OH has said it will be a last minute decision if we do.

My daughters going to Florida the week after that which is a bummer with the dates.

Any more for any more?

Going to be getting in touch with SYHA later today.
Looking for £20 deposits from folks in the next week since SYHA operate a deposit system which unfortunately is only partially refundable / non-refundable depending on timescale of cancellations.

I'll PM folks payment details later today / tomorrow once if they are on this sign up list.

Hopefully we won't have require to make any cancellations but just to let you know.

Hi Folks

Thanks to those of you who have paid your deposits so far.
Please check the master list and make sure I've updated it correctly.

Really need to get things moving so please get your deposits to me ASAP if you've not done so already.

SYHA have a provisional booking held for us but I NEED people to commit by means of a deposit ASAP please.

Still spaces available......The roads round Oban are GREAT ..... Go on - You know you wanna Smile

Hi All.

We've got 16 spaces booked, group membership and deposit paid which gives us exclusive use of our rooms.

So as it stands we've got 14 people committed in paying their deposit to me or have accepted Wonga style terms at the bank of rosco.
One definite maybe and one space up for grabs.

Any takers?

Cheers
