Op Storm Wales 2018 Sep 14th to 16th

Post by cheekykev » Wed Nov 08, 2017 12:04 pm

Hi all you Storm Troopers.

Due to the success of the 2017 meeting i will be organising it again, we will be staying at the Bunkhouse (see link below) which I have already preliminary booked, and the ride out will be similar if not the same as this years.
The meeting will be held on the weekend of September 14th, 15th and 16th, 2018 meeting up on Friday and leaving Sunday.
For those that didn't come this year, here's a low down, the Bunkhouse accommodates 20 people at a cost of £480 for the weekend, so not hard to work out that it would be £24 each.
You can bring your own sleeping bag, but they will provide bedding for a one off payment of £3 (no brainier really)
It's all based on self-catering, but they will provide a breakfast for £5 pp if required, and a 2 course evening meal, again if required for £12 pp, a BBQ is also there for us to use if we want to have our own burgers etc, all we did last year was order breakfast (which I must add was second to none) :thumbup: and chipped in £21 each and did our own BBQ at night with beer etc.
Not bad hey, a total cost of £51 for the whole weekend including digs, breakfast, BBQ and beer :Beer Popcorn: plus no need to carry anything with you only a change of clothes, great value which anyone who attended this years meeting will vouch for :D :thumbup:
The important bit is the guy needs a deposit before the end of the Year, so I need to know who's coming and payment before the New Year, If we fill the place taking into account of £24 digs, £3 bedding and a few quid for the electric meter, then I'll be asking for full payment off only £30 each.
There seems little point in asking for a deposit then going through all the pain of asking for payment again so I will be asking for full payment before the end of December.
If anyone who came this year would like to comment on the meeting then please crack on, this may help other members, especially new members to decide if it's for them or not.
So come on guys, lets get some names down, don't forget there are only 20 places to be had, when the place is full it doesn't mean you can't come, it just means you'll have to camp or find a guest house, all of which are available close by.

Yip I'm in.
Ok, there were some pillows thrown around on Friday night due to the persistent snorers and farters, but that's better than someone pissing on your tent in the middle of the night for the same reason, but the bunk house is great. AND there's burger all phone signal, so no need to have to call/ report in to the other half's. wippee.
place is clean, well it was before we all trudged in, showers are good, place to hang up wet/sweaty gear to dry out and big tables for crap to be talked about in the dry and warmth.
What's more to want.
No tent, no bedding, no cups kettles etc to pack up and cart around..... all good.

Same paypal details Kev?
Don't hassle me
I'll get there at some time

I’m in it was probably the best biking weekend I’ve had any new members that have never been to a op storm really should try to attend this.

Pete! Yah missed Scotland trip. + the optional 5+ days missing coming further north if your souther grey locks will permit you. (And your brother is more than welcome to come)
Also
In reaponce to the NC500 I now see the NW250 is being run out. Again this is a fab route, you can do it from my place in a day or over night it if weather dictates.
Come on lads, who's up for it?,??

To be honest, like I've said to many others, I know it's ages away but unfortunately I have to book this place before the New Year or we could end up loosing it, yes I except that we all are probably uncertain of our plans for 2018, but why don't you just put your name down, at the end of the day the worst case scenario is, if it ends up you can't come then you just lose £30 :( and the chances are if you can't make it someone else will buy your place off you :D at least if you get your name down now you're sure of getting in the Bunkhouse :thumbup:
