Hi Tim,

Ideal thanks - will let you know when it appears in my account.

We are off on Tuesday to get things set up so messages may become more sporadic.

Thanks,

OK, thanks for letting me know Gav, I have just checked my PayPal account and I can see its listed, but can still be cancelled. I assume that means it has not been claimed?
I will cancel it and if ok, will give you cash on arrival (which could be tomorrow as Lance an I are down there tomorrow)?

Hi, I just wanted to say a big thank you to Gavin, Hayleigh , Harry, Sue, Pam et al for organising another brilliant North Devon Rally. I had a brilliant relaxing time. Your efforts mean we can just enjoy the rally with a family atmosphere, helped by Syd adding another family angle.
Please let me know if the £33 was not sufficient for the event, as we can't have you being out of pocket.
I hope you have had a good day Lance and Jo and have a safe journey back tomorrow.

We were unable to do the whole weekend, due to work getting in the way. I'm so glad we went for the day on Saturday.
Meeting up with friends old and new, great weather for a change, and such a good turnout.

Many thanks to all involved.

Special thanks to Syd, Lloyd and Mandy for the surprise treat :wink: It was really nice to see you all again.

Hi all, great rally, great company. How on earth the Team manage to run it on the what the individual costing was. Like Tim if there is any deficit it is ours not yours.
Nice to see some of the attendees spouses accompany their partners.
Glad you came, Graham, Carolyn, Dave and Jean for a day visit, bring your tents next time.
A new turbo member, Sam, joined us on the Saturday.
Thanks again for such a pleasant weekend.
Biker of the meet....... Harry.

"The gentle rally" aka the nth devon, was over all too soon last weekend. For the second time this year we had ourselves a rally with great weather. Of course this rally is all about remembering its founder "Biker Bob" which its new sponsor ( soon Gavin) does with swan-like efficiency. Its quite obvious that Haley and ????? ( oh bugger - I hate growing old and forgetting names) his sister also do an awful lot as well to make this a lovely gentle and utterly relaxing weekend.

My bike is playing up after its recent sojourn to Spain so I didnt make the ride out but this lot did and a grand time they had by all accounts.

The motley crew. It was great to see several new female faces. These were partners who took their lives in their hands to venture out despite the very reall danger of falling asleep during the long hours of widgets and main jet dicussions. Thankfully those discussions were kept to a minimum and they were kind enough to say they thoroughly enjoyed themselves and might even come again next year.

Image
This little guy was the star of the show. Harry aka Haribo who kept us all in check and in stitches all at the same time.

Finally, we had a new guest named Sam who came on his 650 Turbo. It was interesting and enjoyable to have him and his bike there and hope he feels sufficiently enamoured with us to join up.

Final word goes to Sue ( Bobs wife ) who was moved to tears several times seeing the legacy Bob started carrying on and still bearing fruit.
Well done Gav and crew - many thanks from all of us who had the luxury of just turning up and thoroughly enjoying ourselves.

Just got home after a brilliant meet up in North Devon as we stayed on for another day.
Again we must say a Huge thank you to Gav ,Hayley ,Sue and the family for making this such a popular event and for all the organization for a great friendly meet up. I'm sure Biker Bob was with us all in spirit .The weather held good and the ride out was fantastic ( well done to Gavin and stu/ Nigel). It was great to meet up again with Muddy and Eve ,Graham and wife ,Pete n Becky And to see Marty and Colin ,Michael G too. Glad there were some wives too so Jo got to know some more faces. Star of the weekend was definitely little Harry ! We're already looking forward to next years meet up :wink:

Hi All,

Thanks for all the messages and the photos - as I have said time and again the rally is only as good as all the people who attend and make it such.

We have landed and mostly unpacked. Thank you all for making it such a lovely weekend. All the ingredients were present - good weather, good bikes and good friends. Looking forward to next year and maybe we can get a few more CX's for what we are calling the 10 year anniversary :-)

Would be good if we can get a collection of photos from the weekend put together somewhere for all to enjoy?

Thanks,
Gavin
