First topic message reminder :

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

He's a bit like a bad smell in that respect.

I've spoken to Furballs we'll sort something out between us. No idea who is going to fill DBD's drinking shoes though.

Boing.....ONE space up for grabs (there might be more but we had already booked this one)

Need to know before next week or I'll need to cancel it.
Come on - you know you wanna.

DBD's boots are easy to fill - He's only a size 5. (Same as my 8 year old - who incidentally is nearly as tall and can ride Panigale's just as good (albeit on the xbox))

Hi All

Apologies for not putting this up sooner.

If anyone wants to stop over at mine on the way to Oban (and/or) the way back. (Thursday night / Monday night) then please let me know.

I'm off work Friday / Monday (that reminds me I'll need to chase that up tomorrow morning) as it hasn't been confirmed yet.

We've a bit of space indoor with beds and inflatable beds and can setup camp outside if required.

Please PM me if you are interested.

We can arrive from 2 pm onwards at the youth hostel on the Friday.

Depending on numbers and if anyone wants to meet en-route I expect to leave about noon to get there about 3 ish.

Cheers
Ross

Ps DBD's space still up for grabs. Anyone????

Don't think it will be a problem, but better safe than sorry..

PS: DBD you will know what Atholl + Byron are riding

PPS; DBD any idea where in the world Atholl is??? I shall give him a call nearer the time...

Update.......Unfortunately Bob's brother Pete has double-booked with a family event and can now no longer attend.

Which means we have another space that is up for grabs.

It would be great if both DBD's and Bobs space can be filled but I NEED to know asap otherwise I have to cancel them to try and get some money back.

Anyone got any friends they want to bring along?

DBD - I'll try and drink for two and get you a t-shirt.
