Further details for the weekend will be available shortly.
Please let us know if you are coming to this event, please book the campsite direct ,mentioning the Moke Club and just let us know that you have done so !!

Hi Everyone
Well only two weeks now to the event so things are falling into place
Simon and family have been for a scout around and have booked the Goathland Hotel for Saturday night, you can see the sample menu at www.thegoathlandhotel.co.uk
This is the hotel that featured in Heartbeat as the Aidensfield Arms !
looks like a good choice for a Saturday night get together
If there are any more people interested in coming along please let me know
Look forward to seeing you there
Regards, Steve.

Hi Guys,
I do hope the BBC weather forecast for Goathland overnight tonight is not correct otherwise there maybe some tents covered in white stuff by morning!

Nope, the Beeb was right... Last I heard was that Robin Wyler was stuck in a ford and Hannah had fallen in :lol:

Yes Nigel, you missed the event of the weekend, we went through a very deep ford and Robin went all guns blazing and got stuck ! Hannah got out to push, he started moving and she went flat on her face into the freezing cold river.
it is a good job that Hannah can see the funny side of things and is a good sport.
Then Graham went through and his car cut out too
Finally Kate and Karen drove through without a hitch, one for the girls !
Cheers, Steve.

p.s. thank you everyone for a really great weekend.

Hi Steve,
Well did the beeb get it right? I.e. did it snow?
Glad it all went well, any photos?
Hope Hanna's not ended up with pneumonia!
Cheers Chris

Well, all I can say is, yes I did drown my Moke, managed to get it out of the ford without getting my feet wet. We had a fantastic weekend, yes it was cold, but enormous fun. Thanks must go to Simon Harper and Family for the idea, Mark and Pauline Nicholson for the fantastic runs, and Steve Hall for pulling it together. All in all a great weekend.

Hi Chris,
If I told you that snowball fights happened on two mornings, then yes the BBC got it right.!
However as you know we are stoic in the Moke Club and a bit of wind from the Arctic never stopped us going out without roofs
Yes indeed a fantastic weekend and we look forward to more of the same soon
Cheers, Kate.
