Is this acceptable.

Also there is some B&B nearby in Wem but it's only a small place and I'd need to know likely numbers.
I'd hire a caravan. Is is a mobile home type caravan or a caravan type caravan?

Ed - find out all the details and put them into the full proposal so people can see the options

Awaiting a return email from the site manager.

Si, it's a mobile home thing.

I'm putting together the final bits and pieces this weekend, I'll hop up there and take some more pics, of the site and of the general area.

I will be submitting very soon

Is the protocol to PM it to Messie first, or to put it on the open site?????

Up to you Ed. Can put it straight into the proposals thread if you want, or run it past me first.

Someone to take my tent in their car from the Ace would be nice. (Thanks BBC)

+1.

I wish I had taken EssexDave's offer up in getting gear to the AR, it was such a load of crap. On the way home however was so much better

I presume I can pencil you down for the slow group then, can I...

Route I have in mind won't need it, and it'll be more likely that those on full-fat sportsbikes will need to learn how to use their clutches and their eyes than their throttles.

Fast group if there was one. Its highly unlikley i will come. I do find riding is such big groups of mixed ability highly frustrating.

Although if any AR had more than one paced group it would make it 100% more appealing, or even just a few groups to split things up a bit, cut out the bunching up etc.

Say group set offs. 30 min appart? This after all is a Dream wish list for an AR.

Generally speaking the AR is now more about the socialising than the ride. Although the ride is still a big part of the show. But if that sort of ride was not your bag there is also quite often a secondary ride on the Sunday for those wanting something a bit more spirited. Don't know if this is being considered this time or not.
