Title: Devon Summer Bash
Post by: knuckle on December 08, 2013, 04:01:04 PM
As most people say at Uncle Barry's meets "we don't have enough get togethers", I'm looking to put a bash on at my best mates farm down in Devon. Some may know him as kWAKER on here or the fact that we looked to do an autumn meet back in 2012 but the weather was pants.

Well, if Mark (aka kWAKER) is up for it, I think it would be great to do something mid summer. That way, we have the best odds for the weather and we've got nice long days. Mark is a sterling bloke and will want nothing for people to camp etc. but I think a few quid each to go towards some wine and whiskey would make him a very happy man.

I'll need to check what could be on offer over the weekend as I haven't even asked him yet but in addition to us "getting our guns out" there could very well be, fishing, clays shooting messing with off-roaders and a bit of motoX.
Big bonfires are a must as is good music. Good food is also a given.  ;)

So this is just a heads up for now and must in no way detract from Uncle Barry's Memorial. I'll be interested to see who is interested in principal and go from there.

Regards, Nic.

I'm already coming down to the Uncle Barry meet and so I doubt I'll make this one too, shame cause I could have brought a few toys to this one.

Whereabouts in Devon is it Nic?
Title: Re: Devon Summer Bash
Post by: knuckle on December 09, 2013, 11:56:59 AM
Down near Totnes, 2 miles from Moreleigh towards Garrabridge.
Title: Re: Devon Summer Bash
Post by: Gambo on December 09, 2013, 12:08:04 PM
Just Google Earthed it.......I reckon about 4 hours from me.

There looks to be two off-road/moto-X tracks near Moreleigh.......do you know if that is that what they are?
Title: Re: Devon Summer Bash
Post by: knuckle on December 09, 2013, 01:29:28 PM
Mark's farm is 1 mile West of Moreleigh on the road to Garrabridge.
The motoX tracks you can see are private courses, not Mark's.

Willow. there's very chance that I could be doing a run to pick more than one person up from the station already, so it's not out of the question mate.  ;)
Title: Re: Devon Summer Bash
Post by: willow on December 10, 2013, 09:32:42 PM

I'm sure that anyone who can only make it by train can (and will) be picked up one way or the other.

I would like this also dependant on dates,bike rally's and holidays permitting.
Title: Re: Devon Summer Bash
Post by: knuckle on December 12, 2013, 05:35:55 PM
I've got Mark here with me now and he's happy for a meet up at any time down the farm so I will start the ball rolling by suggesting the August Bank holiday: 23rd,24th,25th. This way we get the extra day and it's not too close to Uncle Barry's Memorial.

If this clashes with people then please let me know.

Cheers, Nic.
