23/8 here I come. You can't shout at me walking down Bray Hill footpath this year Helen.......staying in Peel for a change !

No rain please.


RE: You know the Manx is getting near when........ - thewitch - 15-07-2008

Oh, go on... come through to Douglas for a night out and I can yell at you in the pub!smiliesmilie


RE: You know the Manx is getting near when........ - Kimbiker - 15-07-2008

My arm could be twisted !!! If I'm not to busy with the kippers of course.

What's the buses like from Peel - Douglas & back ?

Not much fun on the bike and having just 1 little pint !

Would be good to get together from the forum, and beer always make for easy conversation, well, that's my excuse.


RE: You know the Manx is getting near when........ - nutty slack - 15-07-2008

We arrive on the 20th and depart on the 31st, staying in Douglas so not too far for us to travel if a get together is arranged. Ferry and digs all paid up just need pocket money now. Can't wait to come back 'home' again. Hope to see some of you. smilieLmaoyahoo:


RE: You know the Manx is getting near when........ - thewitch - 15-07-2008

Buses ok to Peel, or even to Castletown, although they don't run very late. Sure we can organise something!
I'll get my thinking cap on.... party.... party... YES!


RE: You know the Manx is getting near when........ - Kenny - 16-07-2008

Your start numbers arrive in the post??

All numbers are on the MGP office wall I hear (few of us got ours from a friend racing at the Southern 100) anyone know when the final instructions and numbers are due to be received.
I expect the campsite plan will be within too

Helen, we first met at the gathering you organised at TT04.
Then again at the S100 Clubhouse on the Saturday. Will be alone this year Sad as wifey has a bad back and I will be on my bike.

If there is a formal or informal get-together, I will support it.smilie


RE: You know the Manx is getting near when........ - cargo - 16-07-2008

I had hoped race numbers and final instructions would have arrived toady but alas no.......................

I did get my ferry comfirmaion today so the credit card worked [again]........................

I'm sure Helen will arrange something for a TTwebiste meet up and failing that you'll all be made very welcome at our "house".

If you go to the paddock we will be right underneath the big red splodge

Haven't they cleared that red splodge up from last year yet Cargo?? Rolleyes
Kimbiker, come to Douglas, you don't need to worry about getting back to peel just locate a paddock dweller there'll be plenty of spare room somewhere in the paddock. smilie
And you know when the manx is getting close when the weeks seem to take twice as long to get through smilie
