    Food - group meals are fine (especially if its steak n ale or Kate n Sydney pie)

    Quiz/Award ceremony - could be fun, so yes.

    Talks  - yes, both if possible. (would there be a charge/fee?)
    Countries I've ridden: Scotland, England, Wales, Northern Ireland, Ireland, France, Switzerland, Spain, Andorra, Denmark, Sweden, Finland, Norway, Canada (hired bike).
    Memorable places: Applecross, Barra, Calanish, Lascaux, Pyrenees, Connemara, Tofino, Lillooet, Sulphur Mountain, Nordkapp, Dalsnibba

    The talk is free, except for the cost of a meal with us. If agreeable, we can fund out of the proceeds from the T shirts. If not , it will cost us about a 1 each.

    The guys are willing to give up their time on a Saturday night so hopefully, there is enough interest. I accept that green-laning isn't everyone's interest, ... it wasn't mine until I tried it (in my late 40's) and was surprised how much fun it was. Now I enjoy both road and off -road riding. You'd be surprised how much fun you can have a 20 mph, and it doesn't hurt or cost anything when you fall off (well, most of the time).

    This talk will be about off road biking in the Lakes past & present, plus you'll learn something about how the TRF is trying to protect our interests as motorcyclists. No harm in that.

       Food - group meals sound fine to me.

       Quiz / Awards - usually fun so yes.

       Talks - not my thing but happy to go with the majority.

    Thankyou for you input . Results :

    12 responses

    Food : 9 happy to go with group meal both nights, 1 menu optionand 2 may do both

    Quiz : All in favour. 1 didn't respond

    Speaker : 10 in favour  (I took the 4 "not fussed but I 'll go with the  flow" as a yes)

    Suggest quiz be a team effort (will help getting aquainted ....and spares any embarrassment of being thick).
    Will contact hotel to firm up group food options
    Have sent a mail to Steve Dighills to book him (and his mate Robert Wilson) for a 1 hour slot on Saturday evening.

    Thanks for your feedback. 

    Just the food to sort now. (Due to the numbers, the deal is, we give the hotel a guide on the food order in advance. PLEASE can you help me sort this with minimal hassle).

    I will post more details on menu options next week, all you need to do is confirm (promptly) what you want.

    Sorry for not replying but was out if the country without Internet. It looks like I would have gone with the majority anyway.

    I will probably go with group grub unless something really stands out on the main menu , any of the social stuff should be good
