    Gentlemen's Wee-Kend 5th to 7th June 2009

    Following on from the discussions on the aaahhh thread and speaking with Proff this morning it seemed like an idea to start a new thread with the details of the Airhead shaftie gathering next June.

    Date: Friday the 5th to Sunday the 7th of June 2009.

    Location: Exbourne, Oakhampton, Devon

    Accommodation: Camping, local b&B's spaces for Wobblyboxes available.

    Bikes: Airhead shaft-drives only!

    Further details to follow! (When Proff finishes emptying his colostomy bag)

    Confirm your attendance below!

    So if I can get that old nail of an R80/7 running ("Starts first time!") then I could come.

    Where exactly is venue? Surely not all held on Proff's lumpy sloping garden?? No room for bikes or wobblyboxes and local pub is a bit small. For a National Event this could attract serious numbers which could easily overpower the venue.

    Why not base event at Bettie Cottles just down the road? Only 5 minutes from Proff's place and perfect venue for a bike gathering. They have large camping area, plug-ins for wobbyboxes, a decent bunk house and even luxury B&B for the softies. Good food and good ales. Even the barmaids looked OK and that was before I'd had several pints of Stella.

    I could help with a ride out on the Sat or Sun as area is local to me. Coffee stop at my place if you like as I have space for numerous bikes.

    NOPE !!
    The Barn at the farm where I keep my wobblybox is the venue for the workshop.
    It's a stagger from our local pub. and my house, has electricity plenty of room and is under cover if it rains

    I also prefer to drink in MY local, you know it's a good place and so what if it gets full, they'll cope
    We also have electric plug ins for wobblyboxes FOC !!!, PLUS a camping field IF we need it. 1 mile from farm. with River OKEMENT encircling it almost
    50°48'54.09"N 4° 0'42.94"W on google earth



    and we live by the crossroads at the A3072
    My garden had 30 Rockers camping on it in 1990 and no one complained , 22 tents IIRC..
    the outside loo will be recommissioned for the event.

    It could be ok for B+B if I can't get local in the village...

    Besides A30 rescue who are based at Betty cottles don't like me I shopped them for ripping a broken down motorist off, to the tune of £1500....
    Thats why I never go there...
    Thats why they lost a lot of recovery work .

    If anyone can post a google pic covering the three places mentioned, I'd appreciate it..

    wobblybox barn is under 24 hour cctv surveilance and has feck off strong gates and locks...
