Yorkmeet.
« on: 13 September 2010, 22:00:54 »

Something of a tenuous link but i promised so here goes.
   I realize the site is'nt for everyone & what with the music etc it's not your usual OOFMEET, that said a few months back the Zoks & Andy/Annette said they'd come along regardless if it was on as would the Fletches, Ian & Stuey & maybe PW on his Bandit... 8-). However Newent seemed to be later this year so time off work & finances might affect another meet so close & the weather is on the turn so it could be a non starter. I hav'nt spoken to Ian yet but i did promise to "put it out there" after Newent. I realize it won't be on the same scale as last year but some of you did say you'd attend regardless so i'm just gauging interest...if any. If not no worries & hope Newent is a tad earlier next year. Guy.

If you look just above the club house/left of the tennis courts, there's a caravan in the picture and there are 5 EHU points (of a fashion) there. I think it must be listed as a CL/CS site so, if planned far enough ahead I think it should be possible for some to get electric, 1 did last time.

Any idea of a rough date for this Guy? I've been wanting to take SWMBO to the York Museum for a while and this would be an ideal stop over as long as it is in the school holidays. We'd be in a tent (Marquee) and want electric.

Wow. I'm pleasantly surprised at the interest, sorry i did'nt reply lastnight but i was otherwise...anyway if just a few of are going then i'll contact Ian & get the ball rolling. 
    Last year was a huge turnout inc. nearly all the admins. I realize due to nature of the venue it's not for everybody. This is mainly due to the shower facilities which are free but not very private for wives/children so Dad must stand guard in the doorway ala sports centre/swimming pool etc. We have use of the pavillion with said showers & toilets downstairs & a bar which is closed but a huge room with tables. seating areas & you can sleep there if your tent is cold at night. There is also a small kitchen with sink, cooker, fridge off the bar room. The site is on the B1224 @ Rufforth between York & the A1. A local shop is just up the lane & York is only minutes away. To give folk time we could try for end sept/early oct for those on shift work (Andy) let me know asap please & we'll see what we can do, get it booke & start a list.
   On a more sombre note this i the last time many of us saw Willyboy who was sadly taken from us shortly afterwards. He knew he was on his last knockings & felt terrible but he still came along for a day visit with his lovely wife & lunatic hound. What a trooper. We love you Bill & hav'nt forgoten you. a true gent.

To be honest, its probably getting a bit late in the year for me to camp - I'm a bit long in the tooth to scrape the ice off the tent again ;D

If it looks a good turnout, might consider a travelodge type place nearby?
