    Bookings now open!

    OK, its time I finally got around to taking the bookings for this years event.

    I realised that most of the other events have been organised and numbers taken etc and some even sold out in advance.

    I've tried to keep this event low profile but various people have contacted me wanted to "book in". Please take this thread as the only one for "Please book me in" type of requests.

    I'll try to keep it as simple as possible.

    This will be Year 6 so I think we must have got most of the basics right.

    I believe in the saying "If it arn't broke, don't fix it" so it will be the same as previous years.

    The basic price is £32 broken down as follows:

    1. Friday night mega curry. From mild to wild £6

    2. Saturday morning Luxury Full English Breakfast: £5

    3. Saturday night top quality BBQ: £6

    4. Sunday breakfast (as Saturday): £5

    5. Overnight charge of £5 per person per night for Friday and Saturday night. What's that for? Well, first of all it covers the basic camping. You get to camp either on the top lawn, or in the fields or for the adventurous, in the ten acre woodland with the foxes, badgers and deer.

    Also included is:
    Fully equiped workshop possibly better than most dealer facilities in Devon. You are welcome to make use of excellent facilities which include bike ramps, numerous tools including compressors, welders and lots and lots of spanners. There will be numerous experts on hand to assist but it is not a "free service" but rather an opportunity to share knowledge and learn how to keep the older bikes on the road. Priority will always be given to airheads (not least because I always have several old wrecks that need attention ) but we allow oilheads, hexheads and even toilet models to join in the fun.

    We provide free tea and coffee all day long and even Devon real cream teas during the Saturday afternoon. Top quality local real ale and the infamous Devon cider is also available for which we run an honesty bar. All surplus funds raised is given to the local charity who take disabled people on holiday every two years. Last year, we invited the group to join us on the Saturday afternoon and this was a great success. Despite ATT demonstrating his Tourettes syndrome and seeing how far he could bury his head in Tallgirl's cleavage, they want to come again. (or perhaps that was part of the attraction?)

    For those who like to get dirty, we have ten acres of woodland which has a large enduro course marked out. You are welcome to bring your little enduro bikes or perhaps the "old school" types can thrash your GSs around. For the younger riders, it might be an education to learn that GS bikes can be used on non-tarmac environment. We also have sections marked out for trials bikes. You can even borrow various bikes frommy stable to have a play with (KTM300, CRF230, Aprilia TXR240 and Yamaha 660 Quad).

    If you want to know more about the entire event then either look back through Previous Events or ask questions on here. We do have toilet and showers etc

    It is part Airhead Workshop, part "Chilled out camping Wee Kend", part off-road event, and part "damn good piss up and good food in Devon"..

    If you want to come it is simply "First paid ,first come".
    Paypal the basic £32 to: horman@waffapool.fsnet.co.uk

    Please tell me who you are. In the past, several Tossers used their wife's paypal account and it is hard for me to reconcile a payment from say "Debbie@ Dallas.com" to know that it relates to the username "Fat-Tosser" on here, so please help me out.

    I'm sorry to have to say that numbers have to be limited as it is held at our house and there is a finite number we can accomodate. After the first 50 are paid we will operate a reserve list. In fairness to those who book early, we must add a £10 surcharge to those who book within the final week as this causes us extras trips to the butchers, brewery etc.

    I am very flexible with regard to arrival times. Some people turn up anything up to a week in advance (but be warned, you will be put to work) and some people (who shall remain nameless, but sound like "Lee Froader" turn up at 11.00pm on the Sunday night).

    Any questions, please feel free to ask below, otherwise please post to let me know you are coming and help me with Paypal vs Username

    Har har. Although quite a good system to avoid the "being put to work" thing.

    I blame a very sick dog. Now thankfully much better but also now allergic to anything but the most expensive dog food.

    Errr... Do I really need to book?


    Oh OK I'm in.

    May I suggest that money is sent using the I'm Sending money to family or friends option selected. That way Crapaud won't be charged for receiving the money...



    The transfer review page has the option to add/edit the email message. I have put my name details in there.

    Done

    Payment sent for Jill and I, our sixth year too. We always enjoy this one.

    Evening meals plus camping in the new camper with trailer. So a space on the sand school please Sid. No breakfasts thanks, not good at getting ourselves out of bed of a weekend morning.

    You know!?, it's the people who live in the land that always seem to make it more beautiful than it already appears.
