    I don't think the word 'thank you' actually goes far enough after this weekend of being thoroughly spolit by BILL...

    My executive accommodation
    Wonderful venue/setting
    Food & drink was really first class
    A really nice gathering of people (even Att...)
    Fantastic barn & bails
    Superb ride out courtesy of Phil

    I would like to apologise though, for myself, Mutley & Toad; our utterly appalling attempt @ Arabic poetry in the barn got out of hand, fuelled by mini cocktails that weren't particularly nice, but it amused us...and then Mutley threw the lot up by the fire.....

    I think that just about sums it up Bounce, each Tosser Event has an element that makes it sort of unique and Bill's just carried on with this.
    An excellent time was had by everyone I believe...The planning and thought that went in to this event was amazing and the choice of beer was impeccable.. Thanks Bill, you are a Gent young sir

    Thanks also go out to everyone who helped behind the scene, everything went like clockwork.

    Would like to echo everything said here, myself and Ada had a wonderful time.

    Our first UKgs event, and hopefully not our last.

    Met a lot of wonderful people there, oh and fire! You need fire.

    Massive effort with food and layout, obvious a lot if thought had gone into this.

    ferrol.

    Massive thanks to Bill-H for hosting such a wonderful event on his land.

    I thoroughly enjoyed the whole weekend from riding down with Mort and Gail, Flipfly's B road bimble, Proff's wonderful cider, the food and beers and meeting such a good crowd of "nutters"

    Thanks to everyone who contributed food, drink, time and effort to make it a great weekend, it was appreciated.

    Looking forward to seeing you again somewhere else, either this year or next.

    By a bizzarre sequence of events............

    Well, firstly lets get the serious proper stuff out the way first. Bill`s hospitality was amazing and the attention to detail (yes, hygienically sealed toothbrush in the ablutions hut!) was staggering. If it wasn`t for the commitment of people like Bill the most of us simply wouldn`t have the chance to get away, drink beer, talk rubbish and generally enjoy ourselves (I`ll bet my sad ass there is no one who DIDN`T have a great time). Bill THANK YOU

    Bill, I doubt I ever will get the chance to reciprocate but if there’s anything you need please contact me as I do have the odd resource . And as promised as I was leaving here is the torrid tale. But before I start I make it very clear that this is simply a side issue to what should be a thread where we should all be thanking a very kind guy.

    So, to go off topic and hopefully provide a (hopefully) modestly amusing tale by way of explanation for my absence on Saturday night I must share with you a bizarre sequence of events which resulted in me and my good friend Martin spending the night in Llandudno.

    And Andy, very sorry for buggering off, I know we had serious beer talk to have over the rack you wish me to make – send me the top box etc and I`ll try to do it for free for you, or at least just paying for materials.

    The Spitfire on cold start

    This has nothing to do with the night out but as a matter of hilarity Martin did share with me an anecdote where whilst he was in one of the porta loo`s he heard something akin to a Spitfire starting up (google `spitfire on full choke cold start up` and you will get an idea). Anyway shortly after said noise and on exiting the loo he was horrified and mentally scarred to find a `cow pat` which had looked like it had been shot into the ground. I am led to believe that the indication of energy required to `push` said pat into the ground makes me feel that we had one poorly person amongst us with his boxers in tatters or Bill may have one dog less………. Funny funny funny

    Anyway………………

    The zip line

    This is why we went to NW Wales – to have a go on a zip line about a mile long suspended many miles (it seemed like it) about the earth’s surface. Think death slide. Here`s a few facts:

    Max speed 165Km
    Max height above ground 152m
    Length 1500m
    Cable breaking strain 27.7t

    We did it of course and it was an amazing adrenaline rush. There was one poor chap who couldn`t face it so I said to his lady friend “perhaps next time you want to be the dominant one in the bedroom eh babes?” Thankfully she laughed and totally agreed.

    Btw fear is brown and sticky.

    Port Merion

    This is where it really went sideways, we stopped off for some tea and a beer – finding ourselves in the company of a wedding with some really lovely ladies present we did what only two mature married men can do and drooled! Indeed, the `who can take the best photo of that lovely filly` competition was won by Martin as he had cunningly put his camera on auto snapshot and it was whirring away like a gattling gun.

    The decision

    Eating and having just one beer we then decided that we couldn`t make it back that day and was going to stop over (the view was fantastic………) to be told by the receptionist lady that the nearest place was Llandudno, an hour away. So we got it booked! We contemplated walking there after spending the night doing Tiger Feet in the disco but decided that we were. Indeed, old married men, stinking of fear and sweat and I personally simply couldn`t see what any young lady would see in my capacious wine gut.

    Off we hooned totally back in the wrong direction because we were stupid with Martin saying `we are going in the wrong direction` - we wasn`t he just wouldn`t listen. We then found a stretch of road with ONLY cameras every 100 yards and just one bobby patrolling it. Woohoo.

    Llandudno

    We had been scammed, the website making it look like the Welsh Hilton was bollox – even with the most adroit use of subtle lighting and camera angles this was still a grot hole run by some Malaysians. After getting showered and putting our night time gear on – a euphemism for the gear we had on that day – we hit the town (who could resist us……). Within moments we came across two young ladies who had just had a pee in a shelter on the promenade – lovely! I think they smelt worse than us! We wished them well in their efforts to find suitable public conveniences in the future and went into town.

    The nightclub

    Think 2 mature (euphemism for old gits) wearing their bike gear, smelling like nothing else in a disco and you have a good idea of how stupid we looked (and smelt) – needless to say we retired back to the grot hole by ourselves (not that there was any intention otherwise but I must say it’s certainly nice to just look! I did spot many new mummies for my two daughters….).

    After near kicking the Malasians front door down, we gained access, slept like demons and started the day with a full English `Malaysian` - I’ve just text martin to see if he too has the squirts…………..

    So, there we go guys, the reason why we never made it back. Thank you to all the kindly people who asked me today if we were ok (thanks, you are all a good bunch) and I hope this explanation does not detract from a great weekend and for us especially the Friday night. And thank you to all the kind gents who suggested routes and ride-outs. Sadly we had the zip wire booked!

    Are you feeling better, Sid?

    And last but by no means least - proff, thanks for the cider, I hope the Spanish brandy went some way to reciprocating.

    I want to say a HUGE thank you to Bill for a really great weekend. His generosity, hospitality and sheer workload was both amazing, and to a very large extent, humbling that one person was happy to give so much without wanting ANYTHING in return.

    The friendliness of everyone there made for a perfect weekend there was this too on Saturday night: with jacket spuds for supper.

    Bill, the food you laid on for everyone was amazing. I have seen lesser buffets at wedding receptions. You truly are a gent and thank you for keeping the true spirit of what the GS forum and its members are what it is all about.

    And as for Proff and his lethal cider thank you for your generosity too

    I do hope there will be another one next year. Put my name down for it if there is.

    Cheers,

    Phil
