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 & 2016 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 Wink 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
Read up on WeeMac 2015 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 £15 deposit to hold the accommodation. Everyone else will be on the reserve list for Broadmeadows in the order they signed up.

By 17th June 2016 - £15
By 10th October 2016 - a further £15 deposit
By 3rd March 2017 - 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)



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 and costs for 2016 were very similar.

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 £15 PP by Friday 17th June so I'll be looking for people to get their deposits to me before then to REALLY book your place.
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 29th April 2017 and one on Sunday 30th April 2017.
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

There are two apartments left but I can't book them until I get a deposit from at least one other person.
If you are interested please get your deposit in as soon as you can.

Thanks for the offer Terry but I'd rather be riding.

I'll keep you posted Rosco, as soon as I can confirm I'll let you know.

Excellent.

Dianne has the booking now and has taken the next round of deposits.

It does mean we can have up to 20 staying with the option of yet another apartment (an additional 2 spaces)

We've currently got 17 staying so space for another 3 (up to 5)

It is £120 each Pete.

Total cost WILL be more but it is normally £140 - £150 once we sort out all the food and drink bill.

You don't get dinner bed and breakfast (and bevvy), beautiful venue with open wood burning fire for £50 pppn at any other rideout.

It would be great if you and Fred could make it.

There's a walking thing on in Gala: https://www.list.co.uk/events/scottish-festivals/where:selkirk/when:30-Apr-2017/
https://www.galawalk.co.uk/programme
(That Beltane Fire Festival in Edinburgh is getting bigger every year, but it's a night time thing I think)

If you fancy an interesting drive then
https://goo.gl/maps/YfBKHvRY1uz (Single track between Megget at Talla, lunch and 'nosin around' at Peebles)
or
https://goo.gl/maps/FJzia43irrE2 ('B7007' is a viewpoint looking over Edinburgh in the distance)
...you could combine the two for a longer drive..

I have a -edit- Historic Scotland Card that'll get one of you into any visitor attraction for free (i.e. Edinburgh Castle etc.) that I can drop off with Ross.

Ewan and I are up in the car again but we will have the company of my sister-in-law and brother-in-law during the days whilst you are all on the rideout so any other suggestions of visitor attractions would be greatly appreciated.

Well spotted Steve, yes it should have read am. The post code is DL8 5PD but there are about 20 houses with the same post code. My house sits on the corner of the main A684 road and the corner to the village of Harmby, which your sat nav will direct you to turn. Its called Hill House, and sits on the opposite corner to a pub called the Pheasant. Its quite distinctive as its covered in whitewash. You cant miss it.
PM me if you need my phone number.
