Surf & Turf - 18th/19th July 2014 - SIGN UP

Post  Eddie990 on Fri Nov 29 2013, 14:00

Sign up thread.

Due to the timing of Surf & Turf 2014 being a couple of weeks after the Tour de France Grand Departe accommodation is rapidly disappearing to the armies of lycra clad cycling enthusiasts sure to descend on the dales before and after the event.

On the plus side, it means that most of the really good roads have been/are being and will be resurfaced to be racetrack smooth and grippy as hell Very Happy 

The downside, looks like a 3 night minimum stay, even if we're only there for 2 and I'm going to need a deposit and firm commitment in the near future.

This year we'll be staying in Middleham, a major horse racing centre which used to be the capital of Wensleydale. I've negotiated a good price and provisionally booked a large self catering property called 'The School House' which is directly opposite Middleham Castle, home of Richard III.

There are no less than four pubs in Middleham – all of which serve food:

The White Swan is the foodie’s favourite.
The Black Swan attracts a mixed crowd, and sometimes offers live entertainment.
The Black Bull is a quirky, cosy local with a very good pint.
The Richard III is comfortable, family-friendly, and is building a reputation for its meals.

A short walk away along the bank of the river Cover is one of the best pubs in North Yorkshire, The Cover Bridge Inn, which has won many awards for it's beer and supplies excellent meals with portions large enough to sink a battleship. (Nick & Ellie, we'll be doing our best to make sure there's some Jaipur on tap for you guys  Wink )

Middleham also has a fish and chip takeaway, and a small Chinese restaurant and takeaway.

To make this work out as cheaply as possible for everybody we need at least 15 people for the weekend, that'll work out at £100pp for 3 nights!

So, if you could indicate below if you will be able to attend and whether you would like 2 or 3 nights so I can confirm numbers and book the venue that would be great.

Deposits need to be paid by the end of this month when I'll confirm the booking.

Come on folks, get your name down, we really do need a good turn out otherwise I'll lose the booking. It's a great weekend and the roads and scenery of the Yorkshire Dales, Lake District & North Yorks Moors are legendary.


Thanks,

Chris

Gonna do our best to make this one, just waiting for the ex to inform me of the dates he's having his daughter.

Will let you know asap.

I'd rather have a double bed than a bunk as you lot in one room would break the world snoring record!

Guys, we're struggling with accommodation as per my other thread. I've provisionally booked a venue but we need to pay for 3 nights. It's less than £100 each if we can fill it, sleeps 17.

Will need a deposit fairly soon.

What do we reckon?

I'm afraid I'm going to have to flake on this one, gutted but unfortunately it's a wedding that I've been provisionally going to but have only recently received the invite confirming the date. No way I can get out of it and gutted to be missing it (having missed last yr due to injury.

If there is any deposit to pay Chris please let me know and I'll pay up, really sorry to let people down when we're already in a bit of a crisis.

Unless, in light of the accomodation issues we could put it back a week Wink

Great News! Updated the first post folks, looks like the venue is sorted as long as we get enough people!

The house looks great and setup should be quite similar to Wee Mac, with the exception that there are a few place to feast and imbibe nearby for those that loath self catering.

Sorry to hear you can't make it Steve, hopefully catch up at another meet at some point this year. Will give you a shout on fb if we're heading to Devil's Bridge anytime soon.

Rosco, keep your deposits to yourself just now.....

So sorry to be Larry let downs, but I just can't get a babysitter for this weekend, the ex is away and her grandmas got something on, she's 15 1/2 so it's not much longer till she's not an issue but nowhere near trust worthy enough to be left for more than a few hours!

Gutted tbh, so sorry as we don't like letting anyone down :-(

Sad we're misisng it but kids put the dampner on everything!

Not sure about Wee Mac as its too close to BC to fit in recce's etc.

2 x bikes recce + 2 x bikes rideouts + wee mac x 2 bikes = a small fortune lol.

When I win the lottery.........
