    Welcome to the Thetford Bash !
    This weekend is about two things
    Enjoying your self and raising a few quid for Air Ambulance


    A Rough guide to what is happening ( Times will proly vary as nothing is set in stone )

    Friday
    1) Arrive and get settled
    2) If you are going on the bike ride out go fill up with petrol !!
    2) Chinky at the Rugby club.. This is from 8PM. Motorhomers, please bring eating irons if possible


    Saturday
    1) More arrivals and settling in !
    2) Again, if you intend going on the ride out please go fill up with petrol
    3) Ride out. We will be using the drop off system of out riders. Please see Jaws or Clive ( Silver Fox ) if you are unsure about this. Slower riders at the front please, quicker ones at the back
    4) 7.30pm ( ish ) Elvis will be in the building !
    5) 9.00pm ( ish ) the charity auction will start. Please bring your items and lots of lolly !
    6) 9.50pm ( ish ) Prize giving
    7) 10.00pm Elvis will have rested and be back with us

    For those who are not going on the ride out Thetford town offers a wonderful place to visit,, with both ancient and modern history. There is a ‘Dads Army’ museum ( the program was made here in the town to a great extent ! ), the Ancient House, Button Island, River Walk, the Thomas Paine history ( he who wrote the ‘Rights Of Man’ which stirred up those pesky ‘A merkans’ in to revolt !! ) plus many more great places all around the area
    If you fancy a bit of a ramble, just across the A134 from the camp site is the river which runs all the way in to Thetford. It is about 2 miles and is quite a tough walk.
    See Jaws or one of the other ‘locals’ for more details


    Sunday ( very laid back.. Do what will fit in ! )
    1) Breakfast until about 9.30 to 10.00
    2) Say Hello circle. Come get in the circle and say hello to everyone else
    3) 11.00 First heats of moped racing. Even if you are not having a go, come and cheer your friends !
    4) The slow bike race. Can you ride a pedal cycle ? Can you ride it REAL slow ! ?
    5) Semi finals and finals of moped racing
    6) Tenze machine control race
    7) Neil Diamond on Tour
    8) Ped racing winners cup presented
    9) Thank you’s !
    10 ) Neil Diamond back on stage

    Monday
    1) Time to start packing up
    2) Hope to have live entertainment at lunchtime and pass the hat for the guy on stage
    4) Sad goodbye’s and farewell’s
    3) Anyone left who can assist, help clear up the field with me !


    As they say, ‘der management’ hopes you had a great time and would like to thank one and all for ‘coming on down’ !

    I love Thetford, its so peaceful and quiet, ideal for getting away in the motorhome and listening to the crickets and the gentle, rythmic noise they make scratching their legs interupted only by the long grass waving in the breeze.............

    And then there came Jaws and his Thetford Bash. Have you warned OPTAG mate that you are not an invading force :Rofl1::Rofl1::Rofl1::Rofl1:

    LOL !! Wellllllllllll
    We have quite a few battle areas around us, so we COULD be invaded !

    One thing, you can very often hear small arms fire in the not too far distance..
    Do not worry, they are not an invading force of taliban, just our lads practising what to do to the buggers if spotted !

    Top banana :thumb:
    Get close to the front rather than the back.. Much more relaxed ride and considerably slower pace ! ( as in around 60'ish .. The guys at the back usually play and figures can be errr.. well lets say not QUITE legal...

    I shall be using the 1200 GS as the Bird will be loaned out for the event..

    We are used to the drop-off system. I have taken 200+ bikes on a ride out from Driffield to Whitby via Goathland.
    Does anyone have CB's? Don't do "rubber duck" etc but very useful for the tail end Charlie to keep the run leader informed of what's happening at the back.

    All the normal suspects will be on the UK bikers channel ( chnl 3 ) with no sub tones or encoding

    Mind you, my set up is starting to get a bit tired nowadays.. Should be ok though :Smile:
