    From what I have heard and read in the German papers apparently the rules in the UK are getting even stricter. I am not in a position to question whether the higher-ups are right in imposing those measures but it clearly shows one thing: our mates in charge organising this years Megameet were more than right to call it off. Although it is really sad to see this happening you did the right thing.

    I owe you a drink...

    Hi all.

    Well after all, the Welsh Government has imposed a full lockdown in Wales from the Friday that we all were due to arrive in Llandrindod Wells!!

    I had an email from Greg at the hotel today and thought I’d share it with you...

    Hi Dai,
     
    Sad news with another announcement from Welsh Government with national lockdown from this Friday.
     
    But I wanted to also add, that everyone from Tiger 800 has been extremely supportive and 99% have waived deposits, very humbling and we are most grateful and certainly will remember, hoping to welcome you all in the future when possible.
     
    Stay safe and all the best.
     
    Kind regards
    Greg

    Well done all! Look forward to catch up with you in the Zoom call.

    After a number of recent updating emails between us (as the bulk of Wales by county area was not locked down) I had a similar email this afternoon from Greg confirming he had to cancel my reservation and thanking me for my efforts to still stay with them and similarly the note of praise about the Tiger group support and waived deposits .... he also added that he hoped to maybe see us 2021.

    Sad news relating to the Metropole Hotel, this week.
    Thankfully not as bad as it could have been. Smoke damage can be a bugger but at least no-one was injured and the fire was pretty well contained.

    Yep, could have been a lot, lot worse. It can all be “fixed”........, May 2022....., maybe....?

    Blimey, what an additional pile of bad luck. Hopefully their insurance will cover and set things right but to happen right now just as hospitality is finally seeing a glimmer of light at the end of a long dark tunnel is definitely a terrible financial set back. :003:
