Tan Hill is only about month away now so could folks firm up as soon as they can so Dazzer know numbers.

Wales date now fixed at 22nd/23rd (arrivals from 21st) so sorry those can't make that date but some have expressed preferance just for that one.

Hope to be at both.

Work permitting, new job starts 6th June, so I'll post on the 8th to confirm. I hope to be at both on the friday evening/night of each event, (dont forsee any problems that a solution cant be arranged).

Hi Guys,
Please book me and the XT in for the weekend, camping in Yorkie Land.
I'd like to have a re-run to Rhayader, but I need to check dates as I could still be in Yank Land (Land of the Free?) that weekend.
Cheers

Dazzer Reporting

So we were out on the trail today to do a recky of the trail's
I can say that it will be a full day's trail riding
Basil tell's me that everone who rode at the Welsh meet were good off road rider's , so everyone should be OK on the route that we have planned.
I would say that the last lane of the day as a section of about one and a half mile's that is narrow,it look's worse than it is with the heather growing,and it is tricky,but a excellent track. { see photo's}
If anyone would like to miss this last track out I can plan a tramac section to miss it out.

I have been in contact with Tracy at TanHill,she Tell's me that there is shower's for those that wish to wash I had one in the Spring ,so should be OK till October

Breakfast,can be booked on both morning's But we do need to inform Tracy the night before on how many want it.
Breakfast will be serverd up till 9.30.
The Band is on ,on the Saturday Night,so Friday will be a and getting to know everyone.
If anyone would like to meet up for the ride through the Yorkshire Dale's
Basil and I will be leaving McDonalds in Keighley at 4.30,and will then take the back road's avoiding all the traffic and hope to arrive at Tan Hill at 6pm ..ish.
