Think it is the second Tuesday of each month - need to get there before 6 if you want to get in the field.

Basically it is a 'show what you brung' event. Costs a quid to show.

There will be all aosrts of classics there (hundreds and probably thousands of motor bikes)...

Nice idea but Dave Eds, Nobby, Joss & myself would never be able to get there by 6. DaveT would have to turn down any lessons for most of the afternoon too.

Sounds worth going just for the event anyway.

Ashby Folville is an excellent event if its dry, as its in the cricket field, you can turn up at anytime, just that you won't get it the main field much after 6pm, but that doesn't matter if you just want to view & not so much show. As i said before, tuesdays are a problem for me nowadays as i have other commitments, but please don't let that hold you all back. I would of suggested next week was to soon, but don't suppose Gary can make the August one ?

I can't make the August one as you suggested Mr P. Plan to go next week if the weather is good though. As we are now approaching holiday season I guess it will be hard to get people to commit. That is why I'd organised it prior to holiday season 8)

Having never previously heard of the place, I had to look it up too.

Well ive been on this earth for over 50yrs now ( i know, i can't believe it either :lol: ), but ive never heard of a particular holiday season, unless your talking about the school summer hols ?, i actually thought Gary's holiday season was January to December :? , certainly has been the 5yrs ive known him :!: , if this doesnt go ahead, i am thinking of a september meet at that pub in Alwalton, Peterborough, literally just off the A1, that is a more central venue, & really easy to find, so what day is best for you all ?

As stated on numerous occasions, Tuesdays are no good to me, so either pick another day, or decline the opportunity ?
