  • MTB Meet 5th-7th October at Chapel-le-Dale

    Friday, 5th October 2018 at 4pm - 12pm Sunday, 7th October
    Location: Broadrake Bunkhouse

    Hi Folks,

    The MTB meet is being held at Chapel-le-Dale in the Yorkshire Dales, which is close to Ingleton. Although it's a MTB meet there is also great walking to be had; or if you fancy climbing there are plenty of crags nearby if the weather's OK, such as Twisleton Scars. The bunkhouse has a capacity of twenty places. The cost of the bunkhouse is £45 per head for the weekend and Paul Parker will be doing a meal on Saturday night for £5, so total cost for the weekend is £50 a head. Paul is doing a vegetarian option, you select which option you want when you book a ticket. You'll need to provide your own breakfasts and lunches of course. Bedding & towels are not included, so you'll have to bring a sleeping bag and towel. If want to the bunkhouse will hire you a duvet and towel for £5.

    OK the important bit - paying for it - this is strictly on a first come first served basis and it's £50. To avoid the PayPal charges the tickets are "Free", not really of course, but by clicking the ticket you are ONLY RESERVING A PLACE. To confirm your place you NEED TO PAY the £50 to the treasurer by BACS (account details are on the website). We are asking that you do this within 2 weeks of reserving a place, or we may reallocate your place to another eager Mountain Biker. When you send your payment CAN YOU INLCUDE THE WORDS 'MTB MEET' IN THE PAYMENT REFERENCE

    So Paul knows you've paid for your ticket can you SEND AN EMAIL TO BOTH the club treasurer clubtreasurer@bowlineclimbingclub.co.uk and myself andyrailton@gmail.com saying that you've paid and saying how many tickets you've purchased.

    REMEMBER YOU NEED TO RESERVE A PLACE ON THE CLUB WEBSITE AND THEN PAY FOR THE TICKET

    The MTB meet is traditionally very popular so please book early to avoid disappointment. If more than 20 people want to come there is more accommodation available in Chapel-Le-Dale, in Ingleton and also nearby close to the Ribble Viaduct. If the tickets sell out quickly then I'll post up a list of alternative accommodation that's available.

    Looking forward to seeng you in October.

    Cheers Andy Railton
