Hi Guys and Gals,

Sorry for a delay in posting up about this Event :( ,but as it turns out I don't have time to organise this Event due to other things that am busy organising for the Club next year :P

I took the decision to hand the whole lot over to ChrisHolmes2014 and he agreed to take this on a Month or so ago =D> =D> =D> =D>

This Topic has been Locked and as soon as Chris has any Details he will then post up his own New Topic =D>

Please be patience as there is a lot to organise to make this Trip enjoyable for everyone :thumleft:

Good luck Chris and I know you can get this off the ground :P

Thank you for reading the above :arrow:

No idea why I'm not on the "Yes" list for this...

BUT I will also add one further condition to this... We MUST also build in a trip into Northern Ireland, and the Glens of Antrim. :xmasgrin:

I lived there as a Teenager, and learned to drive on some of the Best Roads In The World(!); I have been Gagging to get over there and re-live those roads in a car that fully deserves it! :twisted:

I can help organise at least a route and suggestions for hotel / places to stay - and if it's not an official leg of the trip, I will at least make it up there and prepared to lead a "Breakfast Run" type of event with anybody else interested; though of course it would be a "whole day" event, not just a few hours. I wonder if Spin Doctor is listening?? :thumleft: =D>
