First topic message reminder :

Split this from the "Who on here still owns a 'cat".

Thread to discuss the possibility of an Oxon weekend away rideout, if it gets going an area in Something for the Weekend will be created. - SteveCat

If it's done in Oxfordshire area I might be able to arrange some pretty damn cheap rooms £15pppn green smile that includes a full English breakfast buffet as well Wink But that does depend on when as we can get seriously busy at this Hotel.

I can do Oxfordshire, I often work in the north of the county (JLR at Gaydon)

Have updated the poll. Can fine tune when a popular month is found.

Select all which you can attend.

Hmm ponder

(PS: I've been in the engine-room Steve and added more vote options so the Jul & Aug dates can be voted on seperately - weekend wise [You must be registered and logged in to see this image.])

It's local for me as well, and I can be pretty flexible on dates - I've voted for most of them.

Happy to help with leading a ride-out or whatever - be nice to have more than just Weasley turn up for a change! ;)

Indeedy, and with the strong looking chance of accommodation, perhaps this time a southern ride just may get off the ground and maybe establish its self confused  ponder left thumb up

Probably better you tell us a day/date and I'm sure as many as are able will make their best efforts to be there green smile
I personally would relish the chance at a southern ride out, especially if it turned out to be a weekender Very Happy left thumb up

I'll live, I think. That's the problem of losing your spleen in a crash, next to no immune system! I managed to pick up an oral infection from my little boy, and it's actually the worst illness that I've had to date. :(

I actually didn't post a link to the hotel's website Shocked
[You must be registered and logged in to see this link.]

We are undergoing refurbishment at the moment but still open as usual Very Happy

Dates wise, I'm easy until around late late July as that's when baby number two is due Shocked Shocked Shocked
But feel free to throw the dates at me esp if we fancy going for a weekender from the dates I've supplied.
Otherwise a general day meet and ride would also be great.

I've taken away the less popular dates, focusing on July and August, two dates being favourites. Mid July is 1 week before Big Mac, so could be an issue if anyone is wishing to do both.

Are those who said 12th August still OK with that date?  
Those who are undecided but can once given a date, the 12th OK for you?
We'll have to confirm the accommodation is still available though.

Generally if I know people are coming I can get rooms sorted without a problem. We have actually just repainted the bar area and it's much better! As is much of the hotel now tbh.

I'll be back at work tomorrow and can confirm dates then for you all. 12th might be a problem for me depending when the baby decides to drop (due on July 31st) Shocked Shocked
But I can't see it being a problem me meeting you all up there regardless Very Happy Very Happy
And I'll be able to push some advertising for the forums on our FB page and hotel blog.

I'll also sort out some parking spaces as it will be good having all the bikes lined up for a decent camera shot!

The mid July date, if that's 15th 16th and 17th, is good for me. I only get one weekend off work in three, so that falls good for once.

Well I'd just need a confirmed date and then I'll check our availability and book people in.

Also sorry for the monumental slow reply's, work has had me non stop for the past 2 months now :(

On the good side of things I upgraded to R6 calipers and front braided hoses, and also bought new Battalax BT023's for front and rear Very Happy

Please could you check your availability for 15-17 July and 12-14 August, looks like these are the favourites. I've cleared the poll and left these two dates in could those interested please re-vote.

Fantastic, thanks Raymond. I'll set-up the ride-out area so people can put their names down. Bobh has kindly offered to get a ride route planned, but will also need to know potential numbers for catering.
For now I'll co-ordinate this but if someone else would like to do it, I'll be happy for them to take it over.
