My niece is getting married on the bank holiday weekend and I have been told in no uncertain terms by the whole family I will have to attend.. sorry guys...

Sadly yes..
Some folk suggested a change of date for the Bash, but really, it has to be a bank holiday

@Jaws , John does it have to be a bank holiday weekend, how about the last weekend in July when a lot of people are off anyway. I am not sure when the Rugby season starts but I am sure you would fill that meet no matter when you ran it.

Better than not having the bash at all john

I know it is easy to forget but the Bash is for Blackbird owners too Bob :)
They do not have the luxury of our warm vans !

Tried it in July before, many years ago.. Complete flop .. What with folk preparing to go on hols, and others being on hols the numbers dropped to the point it was abandoned

I will see if there is a week end available early June

OK..
Is there anyone willing to commit to just keeping things running while we are away at the wedding ?

I can get the motorcycle side of things sorted out for Saturday no problem.. Several volunteers happy to do the ride out etc..

I can get everything done and ready, get all the paperwork sorted out, get the peds and other toys delivered to the site..

It would be up to someone else to organise the actual ped races ( all paper work supplied ) and any other daft games..

I am sure someone would be willing to step in and do the charity auction bit..

So any one up for it ?

Could not commit to the whole thing John but Bill and I could help out with some of it . We are always worried to marshal ect because of Amanda and her needs or if we have been up all night with her , but if we can help out we will xxx Kate x

Will your niece's wedding take all of 3 days? Or is it a long way away?? I've never actually been to your bash but would be happy to help out with simple tasks!!

Not long enough, but a little common sense helps..........
John I will commit ( come over from Spain ) and cover the marshal bit ( I will read Jim's guide this time !! ) and the charity auction bit, if that helps and cover whatever needs done to help.
