    MATMEET X - 27/28 Oct, 2012

    Post  GRAYMAN on Tue Sep 11, 2012 8:51 am



    Hello there matters!

    Matmeet X dates have been confirmed:

    We're looking to hold the matmeet in the morning, have a spot of lunch and then get back in the water with Paipos, Bellyboards, Handplanes, Alaias... Anything made from wood!

    27/28 Oct is the main option, favouring the Sunday, but we can go for the following weekend if needed.

    The meet will be held on the Perranport to Mawgan Porth stretch o coast in Cornwall.

    Cheers

    G

    I always ask and it always draws a blank but if anyone knows anyone up for filming/taking photo's then bring them along.

    I'm not. Dunno about others. The site at Polly Joke might be a good option. Matt23 can fill you in on that.

    This will be last say on the matter but

    Plympton to Croyde 73 miles
    Plympton to Perranporth 56
    Southampton to Croyde 154
    Southampton to Perranporth 200 miles
    Hayle to Croyde 108 miles
    Newquay to Croyde 86

    And there is the option of Putsborough if the weather looks iffy

    I'm not sure what your point is Jerry, other than North Devon is f*cking miles from everybody. I'm guessing your thinking is that it's fair for everyone to have to drive miles and miles, however I can guarantee you that we would end up with you, me and Bob attending.

    If this was the only meet then you would have a point but it's not. We'll be having one up your way in Feb which I know a couple of Cornish matters plan to come to so if Cornwall is too far for you you can come to your local meet instead.

    G

    PS North Devon isn't just a matter of distance. The roads are appauling.

    I have to agree, the roads are shocking, the miles don't put ppl off it's the time it takes to do them!
    Well up for it though!

    It may be a plan for a future meet to plan a trek up there. A matmeet at Lynmouth or Porlock would be amazing.

    Too much organising for this one though. I'm not doing another flyer either! Smile

    Interesting point not about milage but time last trip to bude M4 M5 junction 3hrs to get past Bristol Shocked 7 hour trip and didnt get as far as Barnstable!.
    It is getting back to the old days of 6-7hr trips to devon and cornwall before the motorway was built and you were on the old raods.

    Stopped using the M4 its quicker going through your neck of the woods, gloucestershire and down the M5.

    Got some time off work as Ive taken none this year so hopefully see you on the 27/28th.

    Might take you up on that Ian although I suspect a visitor every other weekend might be a bit much drunken drunken

    I've been thinking. As this is our tenth meet I'm gonna offer some "crazy savings" (cue poorly acted excitement from chavvie actors).

    Anyway here's the deal. I'll be taking mats and fins on the day and you can get some bargains:

    DaFin - £40 any size. (Usually £47-49.50)

    4GF Blue Streak mats - £140 all models. (Usually £154.95)

    Mat and fin package - £175. (Total saving £25-30)


    Please bring the exact money!!!!

    Cheers

    G
