Wee Mac SIGN UP 2016 - April 29th -> May 2nd - Selkirk - Back for even more....again.

First topic message reminder :

Hi All

In a bizarre moment of organisation I've provisionally booked Broadmeadows House in Yarrrowford just outside Selkirk again since Wee Mac 2012, 2013, 2014 & 2015 were brilliant and the digs were great value, stunning and gave us a great base.
Selkirk isn't too far away if you want to book your own accommodation - most of dad's army stay here every year.

CHECK IT OUT - HERE

In April 2012 most of us stayed in Broadmeadows and a few stayed at the other local accommodation which was just down the road (unless you follow Cath back - sorry Cath).  If there is over-spill from Broadmeadows then we can certainly use this again.

In April 2013 most of us stayed in Broadmeadows and a few stayed at other accommodation in Selkirk.

Read up on WeeMac 2012 HERE
Read up on WeeMac 2013 HERE
Read up on WeeMac 2014 HERE

Some rooms are doubles only, some are SuperKing with the option to split into singles (twin room) and some are dedicated twin rooms so the singles will need to share.

So what do I need to know - I NEED people to commit on this page to get your name on the priority list if you want to stay at Broadmeadows.  The first 22 will (unless I hear otherwise) have their space guaranteed when they pay their initial £10 deposit to hold the accommodation. Everyone else will be on the reserve list for Broadmeadows in the order they signed up.

By 15th June 2015 - £10
By 15th October 2015 - a further £20 deposit
By 4th March 2016 - a further £90

Total = £120

At the end of the stay - whatever the final bill add up to divided as fairly as possible between everyone (hopefully no more than an extra £30)



Until midnight Friday 12th June I'll give folks who stayed in Broadmeadows (2015) first dibs on the accommodation but ANYONE can put their name on this sign-up page and from that point you're in the queue.

I've still got deposits for those who had to pull out last year so you can be included in the above (if not I'll return your £10 deposit to you)

Once we hit 22 people I'll confirm with the venue.  We've had drop-outs every year so those places will be filled in order of the sign-up list.

Costs - I've worked out approximate costs as follows

Big Hoose (3 night stay) will be a cost of approx £120 - we NEED to fill this  (10 spaces)
Rest of Broadmeadows (3 night stay) will be a cost of approx £120 (4 + 4 + 2 = 10 spaces)
There are two additional beds that they can supply for our use and this will be same cost. I've been in them twice and they are well comfy.

This cost will pay for your accommodation and supplies for breakfast.
We then buy supplies for evening meals and drinks add on any shortfall or subtract any overpayment and then split this between everyone.

Cost vary but in 2015 the grand total (initial total £100) was about £147 (we had some empty spaces though)
I'm hoping the grand total will be not more than £150 for a three night stay - that includes all food and drink Smile- Dinner, bed and breakfast.

It really is a 5 star stay for a 3 star cost Wink

I NEED the first 22 people on the list to confirm and pay a initial deposit £10 PP by Saturday 20th June so I'll be looking for people to get their deposits to me before then to REALLY book your place.  I'll come back to folks next weekend with an update of what you got in the lucky dip and hopefully it works out that everyone is happy. You can't please all the people all the time but we'll do our best.

If you have to cancel you will only lose your deposit if we can't find a replacement.
If lots of people cancel then we've got a problem that will have to be shared - but hopefully that won't happen.

Hopefully everyone will get the right room but there might need to be a bit of jiggery-pokery in the sleeping arrangements if you know what I mean.

The RIDEOUT is a TWO day event with one on Saturday 30th April 2016 and one on Sunday 1st May 2016.
Please note that folks who wish to attend the event are welcome to organise their own accommodation.

Will also be looking for volunteer chefs, assistant chefs nearer the time.  Everyone needs to muck in though.

SIGNUP

e.g.
Rosco (Ross) + 1
require a double or two singles depending on who I can talk into attending.

Bravepill6 (Euan) - Might be my +1 or he might be looking for a ride.
require a single whether he's beeacthing for Rosco or not.

Cheers
Rosco
