Llanfyllin Workhouse 27th April 2019

Post by Bonnielad » Sun Feb 24, 2019 10:09 am

I have spoken with the organisers at the Workhouse and confirmed the dates, accommodation and food arrangements.

Friday April 26th - arrive at your convenience. A meal should be available and beer available at the bar.
Saturday morning - full breakfast before riding out.
Saturday evening - into town for a meal in the Cain Valley Hotel.
Sunday morning - full breakfast before slinking off home.

Llanfyllin workhouse is on the A490 just east of Llanfyllin, Powys. Postcode is SY22 5LD.

I think the costs will be the same as last year. Last year the breakfast was ÂŁ8 each - but seriously well worth it. The friday meal will depend on what's available and what you choose.
Sleeping arrangements are whatever you prefer: Bunkhouse dormitories can accommodate 24 and they provide the bedding. You can bring your own Motorhome, van or tent if you wish. Strangely, whichever you choose, the cost is the same at ÂŁ15 per night.
Deposits aren't necessary. They trust our honesty and we just tot it up on Sunday morning and settle our own bills.

There should be enough of us to arrange a good trail ride, an easier trail ride (for those with road tyres or less experience) and a road ride for those wanting to stay clean.
In order to look after us properly they need an idea of numbers attending, and what drinks to buy in. Don't get too specific on the drinks, we just need a realistic idea of how much and what type (75% Lager / 20% Beer / 5% Guinness?).

Get your names down chaps, it's going to be a great weekend. I've ordered good weather.

MAJOR ANNOUNCEMENT
There are a few issues with the MCN Peterborough rally: 1. The problem of not being able to ride out from there, 2. The issue of wanting to leave when WE want, 3. The possibility that not everyone is likely to get a wifey-pass to attend both Peterborough and Llanfyllin as they are only 3 weeks apart, we have decided to ditch the idea of officially attending Peterborough. Hopefully this will encourage a better attendance in Wales so hope to see more of you there.
We will hopefully be able to arrange a good off road route (thanks to Deadgrass for offering his services), an interesting road ride, and a training session/ gentler ride out for those feeling they need to learn more.
I will keep you informed.

A quick note about the legals here.
Please be aware that this event is deliberately listed under "Members own events". This is not an official club meet, so the club is not officially liable for any legal responsibility.
I don't think for one minute that any member would ever try to claim against the club if something went wrong, the problem is that their family might. So we need to stress that this event is just a gathering of friends for an enjoyable weekend and we are all responsible for our own actions.
Unfortunately this is necessary because of the state of the world we live in, so expect to see something similar each time I 'organise' an event.
Thanks for understanding.

Steve

Update on the food situation.
The cook will not be available on Friday night so we are arranging an oven full of pies, probably a simple choice of Steak or Chicken with a few specials for the veggies (let me know!). There should also be peas and gravy. The ladies at the workhouse are a bit worried in case we have any left over, so if there are any left we may have to buy them and bring them home with us.
Beers will be sorted as planned.
No change regarding breakfast though, or Saturday night at the Cain Valley Hotel.
