Default Re: slightly surprised........

Several times, myself and Oli have said we'd do it again.
The Dalesbridge Centre have come to me asking permission to quote me for their newsletter as far as my opinon on them accomodating us is concerned.. they sent me a questionnaire about what I thought about facilities, and accomodating a group etc (standard fair as far as a business is concerned) but they gave me a call a couple of weeks ago, asking if I'd mind them using my comments.
They've already suggested we were the best behaved and polite bunch they've had.We proved that we were better guests than some of their other people who were on their own!!
They were extremely impressed by how we all took over the field, and were gone in a blink of an eye, with not so much as a speck of litter left behind.


The only disappointment, is that a bunch of bikers didn't drink them dry
This is good, sometimes places don't always want us back or vice versa. It does help when the manager(Matt the lad with the long hair) comes from a family of bikers, so is biased, but they are more than happy to have us again

So, if nobody comes forward, we'd have a think about it. I've got a few things on next year though, provided finances are in place, and we still live in the area too. both myself and Oli live more than 50 miles away from the site but as we've done it there now, it wouldn't be hard for us or someone else to take the reigns if the org fancied tackling the weather third time lucky.

Should have known better then, when nearly everyone plans to ride the next day!

Is part of the issue the fact that we are discussing AR12 in the AR11 section and people are missing it ?

So would it be useful to setup the AR12 section now and then people can post in there if they wish to put themselves forward ? I'm happy to do so, if this would be viewed as being useful starting place to get next years AR off the ground.

Well its a good idea Dizz and as youve done everything for this years AR all that would need doing was to set a date. The rideout route is already known.

4 things if you're going to run it again
1. Sort the weather out
2. I don't mind chopping the onions again
3. I won't be using the Bradford ring road to get there
4. Don't let Dave Preston have access to a loud hailer

I thought the site and location were perfect, just the weather cheated my enjoyment of rideout, so a re run of AR11 would be fine and wouldn't require too much organisation

I didn't want to point it out.

I think so. No good having a thread such as this in a place that isn't frequented due to it having been and gone. Maybe moving this entire thread to somewhere more noticeable, will tout for some business

Not sure it would be wise to move the thread, reckon its better to start again and draw a line under whats been posted in here.
