POTTERING IN THE PEAKS. JULY 19th, 20th AND 21st

Post by Nigel(no top)Sykes »

There are already 17 confirmed Mokes for this event and the campsite has 8 spaces left after which its a full house so get a wiggle on if you want to join us. Note that's 8 spaces left not 8 spaces on reserve for Mokers when they decide to book!

The main base camp will be at Carsington Fields Camping and caravan site between Ashbourne ( 5 miles) and Wirskworth ( 3 miles)
www.carsingtoncaravaning.co.uk
Its within walking distance of Carsington water visitor centre (www.visitcarsington.co.uk ) which has lots to offer on and off the water.

Charges vary from £15 ( 1 adult tent or caravan/motorhome no hook up) to £30 per pitch ( 2 adults + 2 under 17’s hardstanding and hook up.
Dogs are allowed and there is Free WIFI .

For non campers here are three alternative options but there are more

Red Lion Hotel Wirskworth 01629 822 214 £80 b and b for two
Breach Farm Carsington B and B 01629 540265 £85 per night for a two night min booking or £90 one night
The lock up in Wirskworth 01629 826272 £95 per night

For those who make it on the Thursday evening we will have a bit of a run out to a different part of the area on the Friday to be back for meet and greet that evening which will be DIY , Indian , Pizza ,Fish and chips delivered to site or your own BBQ.

On the Saturday the first car will be away at 10.00 ( Potter time NOT Moke time) for a road run with a fun treasure hunt with a twist.
Stunning roads are already planned and will take you over canals and rivers, through a very long tunnel, across a BIG Splash ford and into the very heart of the stunning High Peak on Moke roads some of which will not be for wimps but all will be tarmac- I hope!.
There will be a short run option for those who wish to head back after a group lunch and a longer full days road run for the Moke trampers.

On Sunday morning first cars away at 10.00am for another road run and refreshment and viewing stops.

It will be a Touring Assembly ( leisurely no speed ) and the drives will be fun for all with plenty of time to enjoy the sights , the stunning scenery, the coffee ,lunch stops and the local farmhouse ice-cream. If anyone has a break down we will even have workshop facilities available locally.

Please immediately book your accommodation direct because it’s a busy time and it’s the first weekend of the school holidays. Some of you may wish to extend your stay.
Once booked email me

ianpotter@ipaquotas.co.uk

because I need to know who is coming where they are staying to enable me to sort out catering and road packs. If the site fills up, which it will, don’t come bleating to us.
I will email a list of all those attending nearer the time and to date the Isle of Wight is looking like the farthest travelled.
At least can add up

We are all embracing so Cub, choke, Schmidt , Scamp or classic Mini will be welcome so far as we are concerned.
You can stay on the same side of the camp site as the rest of us so long as you are friendly

see you in July you make 20 cars to date.

Each person who has confirmed to me they are attending this event will have by now received details of the food choices for Saturday evening including the event entry form

So if you haven't received an email from me today you aren't on my radar and need to get in gear asap because the entry book is set to close with very limited room at the Inn and limited room on the road runs

10-10 til we do it again

Is it too late to ask to join this please? I’ve Just got my Moke back on the road & (touch wood) it’s running well.
I could only do the treasure hunt / drive on the Saturday due to other committees so would hope to arrive early Saturday morning.
If this is possible and you need anything from me, just ask

I think he may well be loading the lurve machine ready to truck on down south to join the long way round convoy so you may not get a reply ‘til after the weekend. I’ll mention it when I (hopefully) see them
At least can add up

Hi Ian & Carole,
A great weekend even though I was Moke less! Had a great day on Saturday navigating for Tony and doing the run on Sunday with Steve. The attendees at these events are so helpful and come to the rescue if someone has a problem. It takes a great deal of time and effort to organize these events and both of you did a superb job, much appreciated by all I'm sure.

Dear Mr & Mrs Potter

A short note to say many thanks for a simply splendid weekend, enjoyed immensely by myself, and others I'm sure. Now having just arrived home, many many many miles away, my Moke performed really well towing my mobile home and battling with the trucks on M1 & M5!

Good stuff !

Kind regards
