By popular demand, a request to organize a trip to Cornwall again for 2012 either June or July (before the schools break up for summer). :)

So here's an initial post to get some feedback on who's interested, etc.

See the 2011 threads for some background information:

•Kornwall Meet part 2: Tuesday 20th - Friday 23rd September: viewtopic.php?f=4&t=9399

•Let's get wankered in Kornwall Meet 2011: viewtopic.php?f=2&t=8915&hilit=kornwall

Post on here if you are interested, together with any questions, comments, dates you can't make etc so that these can be taken into consideration.

With all the best intentions it's not going to be possible to please all of the people all of the time, but we'll do our best.

I envisage that this Meet / Event will involve a 3 or 4 night stay. There won't be anything stopping anybody from staying a shorter or longer period of time or varying the dates from those that are decided, etc.

Please indicate all that apply in the poll options above and if you have any preferences or dates you cannot do - include them in your post.

Accommodation:
Accommodation - B&B (estimate £35 - £40 / person / night)
•Example: http://www.portreath-arms-hotel.co.uk/ or http://www.stoverlodge.co.uk/

Accommodation – Chalet (these places ‘may only’ do Sat – Sat bookings though)
•Example: http://www.tomsholidays.co.uk/

Accommodation - Motorcyclist specific
http://www.bikers-bed-and-breakfast.com/index.html

When:
When – Weekend / Long Weekend
•Friday – Monday?

When - Week Days
•If this event was held during the week: Tuesday – Friday worked well for me in September, but would this work well for you?

Location:
Travel - Ride direct to Cornwall
•Location - if we could find somewhere "central" we could have an extra day or 2 of riding without having to carry luggage. This might involve using less inspiring motorways and dual carriageways to get to the location.

Travel - Overnight stop in Devon before heading to Cornwall
•This means that you might be travelling with your luggage most of the time

Typically depending on where you live this event could be a 500 - 1000 mile trip :)

It's brilliant to see so much enthusiasm for this already ! :respekt :)
My view would be that the event would be better held before the schools break up for the summer hols as the roads will be far less busy and more useable. :D
I'd be more than happy to take a weeks hols from work and will go with the days/week that suits most people. :thumbup
If anybody wants to save a few quid they could always camp in my garden. :D
And Julian, you can add Mr Giggity to the list of those interested. :help :rolleyes1 :laugh
