CHRISTMAS LUNCH & RIDE

Hi All Bashers

This years traditional fancy dress ride & Christmas lunch party will take place Sunday 22nd December from Starcross Fishing & Cruising Club, starting at 10.15am for nibbles and a “stirrup cup” prior to an 11am start.

Format will be much the same as in previous years and “anything goes” for your choice of fancy dress. However, it is best that whatever you choose will allow you to ride your bike safely. We’ve had some fantastic creations in the past, so lets hope that once again history repeats itself. 

The ticket price this year will be held at £10 for all 2019/2020 TVPB tax payers. Any other visitors will have to pay £15. Pottsie, Sticky or Blaster will be happy to collect your money and book you in. If you prefer to pay by bank transfer then please email Sticky at dowen0666@gmail.com and let him know. Details of our bank account and sort code will be made available if you don’t have them, just email your request to Pottsie.

Please bear in mind that Sunday 22nd December is only 5 weeks away and you are required to book and pay by 15th December if you wish to attend this very popular event which is always the Bash highlight of the year  in the near perfect ambience of S.F. & C.C.

So, lets hope the weather is once again, kind to us.

 

 

 

FARTS CHRISTMAS LUNCH 17TH DECEMBER 2019

Attention All Bashers who F.A.R.T.

To those that wish to attend the Christmas Lunch, please note that the venue has changed due to a popular democratic vote, from Dainton Golf Club to the Phoenix, Chudleigh.

The price remains the same at £20 and you will eat from the 3 course menu which is different from that at Dainton.

26 F.A.R.T. bashers have already confirmed  that they want to be at this event, so you need to look at the menu sent by email , choose your food and complete the party lunch menu form. (Also emailed with the menu).

Please give this form to Pottsie either directly, email or post. Sticky will collect and record your money, either directly or by bank transfer.

Menu choices and payment must be with Pottsie and Sticky by the 1st December latest.

Thank you 

Bobbiballs Ride Sunday 17th November

I am not expecting many to turn up next week, so to give the pub a rough idea of numbers for food, please can  you let me know if you are attending .

Food will be £4  but I believe it will be an excellent ride. It will be a bit hilly in places and could be a bit mucky.

There is a bonfire night on the Saturday with a hog roast and live music, so let me know if you wish to stay in the pub car park also and I can arrange with the pub.

On on

Bash Ride from NEWTON ABBOT Rugby Club on Sunday 29th

Hi All Bashers

This Sunday we will ride from Newton Abbot Rugby Club.

This is a special ride to remember those Bashers we have so sadly lost to the grim reaper since we formed way back in 1993. 

No doubt we can all remember those happy times we’ve spent together with “RJ”,Jack Smith,~”Manky” Doug Flack,~”Tonto” Frances Popley,~”Snakebite” Steve Lawrence,~ “Moaning Geezer” Jeff Franke, ~”Farther” Mike Wareham,~”Noah” Paul Yates,~”Mayday” Chris Connel ,~”Tommy” Alf Atkins,~”Birk” Roger Wyman~”Ned Kelly” Mick Kelly,~”Pinky” Brenda Peers.  Three of whom were in fact founder members .

So, I hope that you will join us to celebrate their lives  at 11 am with a bike for a short easy ride if you prefer, or alternatively come to the club from 1:30 0nwards.   

 P.S.  If you don’t often ride on Sundays, or you are bringing someone new along, then it would be very helpful if you could let me know.  

  Ride On  Pottsie                                                                                                    

Ride for Rowcroft- Sunday October 13th 2019

Hi Bashers

I have been asked to put the Ride for  Rowcroft details on the Facebook/Website page: by a lady called Ella, if any of you are interested in taking part.

It is a great cause and I am sure Rowcroft have helped many of you, if you or your loved ones have been affected by cancer.  I know they helped me and my family a great deal when my my husband had cancer and unfortunately lost his battle at an early age.

Please read on.

We have just launched our fundraising cycling event  ‘Ride for Rowcroft’ which takes place on Sunday 13th October.

Being a charity, fundraising is what we rely on to be able to care for more than 2000 people in South Devon living with life-limiting illnesses.

Its time to saddle up South Devon… Ride for Rowcroft is officially open!.

Do something amazing on Sunday 13th October by putting power to the pedal to support your local hospice.

Complete a 24km Classic Course around some of the most beautiful South Devon countryside- the perfect way to enjoy everything this great area has to offer with fiends and family.

For a slightly different challenge, the 32km Haytor hill climb will return and will see riders take on a point-to-point extension of the Classic Course from Bovey Tracey roundabout, all the way up to Haytor Visitor Centre Coach Park, a steady incline all the way up!

Whether you enjoy a scenic Sunday ride or want to push yourself for that personal best, lets make this a Sunday to remember.

Sign up today!

Thank you Rowcroft Hospice

Becky Heals Naming Ride

After a chaotic naming ceremony at Court Farm that resembled a session in Westminster, with even a prologue for the great grub, the speaker (Blaster) managed to get a consensus of votes to call Becky
“BJ”. Of course this has no connection with Maxine Thomas’s Hash name!
Other names that were whittled down were “Doggie”, “Stiletto” and “Beckshit” which during the heckling were added with names from WC that are unprintable!
Pottsie we need you back for Thursday namings with your dictatorship and bugle to keep ORDER ORDER!
All in all a great evening for BJ’s virgin ride.
RIDE ON

Bash Rides 2019

Hi Bashers,

Just a couple of Parish Notices from Pottsie with respect to upcoming rides this month.

Sunday 15th September will be from The Exeter Inn, London Road, Clyst Honiton. EX5 2NJ. The pub is on the old A30 near the airport and has a very large car park so parking won’t be a problem. The route will be mainly flat on light trafficked East Devon lanes.

Sunday 29th will be from Newton Abbot Rugby Club. The ride is in memory of Jack ‘RJ’ Smith and other memorable Bashers – Manky, Snakebite and Tonto – who though we may have sadly lost will never be forgotten.

Again, an easy flat route to suit those who wish to cycle that don’t usually attend . 

Numbers are required in advance, so snack food can be catered for back at the club house for after the ride.

Please can you let Pottsie, Cobbler or Blaster know if you are going to require food 

Ride on

Farts Ride August 13th 2019

The forecast is good so this Tuesday’s Fart venue is now confirmed to be at Diamond Lil’s house for bacon/sausage sarnies and Poppy’s special chocolate cake (if Unda hasn’t eaten it first) – AND of course, the usual hour’s worth of intellectually scintillating conversation. 

It is definitely NOT the Phoenix cafe, Chudleigh which has been postponed. 

This is a top-up fund raiser towards the recent Spain-France Geriatric’s Tour for the aged, infirm and afflicted – all the grub and goodies have been donated so every penny received will go to charity.

These oldies (most in their seventies, one eighty and two cancer survivors) proved it’s never too late to do amazing things, even when its all falling apart!

Nice One, On On
