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, 2017, 2018 & 2019 were brilliant and the digs were great value, stunning and gave us a great base.

CHECK IT OUT - HERE

Selkirk and Galashiels aren't too far away if you want to book your own accommodation - most of dad's army stay near here every year.

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
Read up on WeeMac 2016 HERE
Read up on WeeMac 2017 HERE
Read up on WeeMac 2018 HERE
Read up on WeeMac 2019 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 18 and possibly up to 22 will (unless I hear otherwise) have their space guaranteed when they pay their initial £20 deposit to hold the accommodation. Everyone else will be on the reserve list for Broadmeadows in the order they signed up.

By end of May 2019 - £20 deposit
By end of September 2019 - a further £20 deposit
By end of Feb 2020 - a further £90

Total = £130 (note this doesn't account for the full food and drinks (and any entertainment) bill which I expect to be around another £30 - £40 or so)



We've had drop-outs every year so those places will be filled in order of the sign-up list.
If we fill the space then deposits will be returned.

Costs - I've worked out approximate costs as follows

Big Hoose (3 night stay) will be a cost of approx £150-£170  we NEED to fill this  (10 spaces)
Rest of Broadmeadows (3 night stay) will be a cost of approx £150-£170 (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.

At the moment we've only provisionally booked 18 spaces but can hopefully book more if required.

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 depending on the food, drinks and entertainment bill but they have generally been in the £150 - 170 total mark for 3 nights dinner, bed and breakfast.

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

I NEED people on the list to confirm and pay a initial deposit £20 PP by end of May 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 TWO daya with one on Saturday 4th May 2019 and one on Sunday 5th May 2019.

Please note that folks who wish to attend the event are welcome to organise their own accommodation as you don't need to stay in Broadmeadows.

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.


The MASTER LIST is [.....in progress] which I'll edit as folks sign up and send me some dough.

Cheers

Smashing.....Definitely put you down for head chef Steve.
I'll sharpen your knives.

Wayne gave me £10 too much for this year before he left so only need £10 from him and £20 from everyone else.

Mayday Mayday. They've only gone and changed Mayday.

The early May Bank Holiday is changing from Monday 4th to Friday 8th May

https://www.bbc.co.uk/news/uk-48565417

This means that folks will likely have to take an extra day's holiday rather than use the bank holiday to travel.

I'm going to see if Broadmeadows is free the following week (8th to the 11th) so we can still use a bank holiday (Friday instead of the Monday)

Is everyone OK with moving if it is available?

Sure is Alex....Just you or you and other(s) thinking about attending?

Will need to check availability of spaces too..There is one more apartment that was free the last time I checked that would give us extra space.

Excellent! It will definitely be me and my friend Rob and possibly Mr France, although me and Rob will be camping as we will be taking two days to get up and two days back so will pack our camping stuff to cut down on costs if that's ok?

Hi Alex.

That’ll be fine. I got it into my head you were wanting to stay at Broadmeadows.
Folks are very welcome to organise their own accommodation and do some or all of the rideouts.

They don’t allow camping at Broadmeadows though and I think the nearest campsite is in Selkirk (Victoria Park Campsite).
Feel free to have a search about for whatever suits best.

We’ll probably be departing our base about 10am the Saturday and Sunday rides.
Routes not set in stone yet (and subject to best weather forecast) but i reckon we’d be heading towards Selkirk in the morning of one of the days.

Cheers
Ross
