Re: WICKED WELSH WEEKEND 2018

Great news - looking forward to it Mikey .. you have a few weeks to sort the Nymph (then again, you brought it last year and it didn't go very far, so its mere presence will be enough !) I've sent an update to Grahame for printing in September Impressions, and will coincide with publication of the a...

Re: Imp 2018 Leicestershire.

We had a great time, being our 2nd National. It seems we drunk the bar dry of the cider on tap by Sunday. We enjoyed the relaxed atmosphere, the autojumble (Lesley took a few orders so it was worth the effort, but was also a focal point for meeting people). The Saturday run was shorter than we'd rea...

Re: Full English weekend. North Devon. June 22nd weekend

Everything that Baz said .. we had a great weekend. OK we didn't go to Diggerland, but Izzy got to play on the beach and swim in the sea instead. Big, big thanks to James & Jason for organising everything - the camp fire was a tremendous end to Saturday. The owners of the Black Cock certainly helped...

Re: Full English weekend. North Devon. June 22nd weekend

Hi James

We are bringing Hilda, leaving here early on Friday morning. Roy & Dawn are planning to bring Suzy however they are having some roof works that week and if delayed may bring the Honda instead if they cannot get away until afternoon.

Is this the HSCC meeting on the 19th? There are usually a few Imps entered and they usually park together in the paddock - so there should be people to talk to. Racing Imps are always very friendly. Imps have won the HSCC/HRSR overall championship for the last 3 years so there's plenty of knowledge ...

Re: Ecosse 2018

Hotels were a bit expensive and reckon the North Sea coast maybe a tad cold in April, so we've booked a cottage for 3 nights, a few miles outside of Montrose, sharing with Roy & Dawn - arriving separately on the Friday.

Looking forward to our first foray to Imp Ecosse.

Re: Going dutch 2018, which ferry ?

We're on the Weds overnighter Dom.. remember that there are only 2 ferries a day from Harwich - 9:00 in the morning and 11:00 at night, so if you don't go overnight then you'll have a very early start to do it on the morning ferry. Pity that dad is not going, he'll be missed. Phil

That's good news.

When the cafe shuts the pub starts doing food so that they do not overlap/compete. The pub also does tea/coffees. Good news on the bookings front.
