Oakwood, Folly Farm


Rob Warner
A huge vote of thanks to everyone who played a part in the organisation and execution of the Welsh Weekender – it was just what I needed! The addition of Folly Farm’s vintage fair was most welcome – the takeover of the Speedway was such fun!

It was great to see everyone & meet some people I haven’t before.  Thanks again to all involved, was a great event, my 1st Oakwood overnighter, and it lived up to everyone’s recommendations.

Just to echo what others have said, As a member of the Oakwood – Sorry NOW – Welsh Weekender Team I’d like to say a big thanks to all those who came down and made the weekend what it is. I’ve just come off the phone to Jim and he’s more than chuffed at the way his barbeque went down.

It does take quite a bit of sorting out – this trip- and this year this was undertaken in no small part by Paul Samuels & Alison. The organising he did seemed to make things a little lighter on other team members shoulders and as a team this was noticed so, Thanks again Paul!

I’m sure you’ll all agree Folly Farm made an excellent addition to the trip, one I hope we can repeat next year. I was also having an informal chat with Andy Hygate (Oakwood Boss & Club member) and he hinted that the late nights are going to make a return next year (though only Friday & Saturday nights – perfect for us) so there could be a return to dark riding! (though a new ride would be nice too)

Sorry – those who wanted it – that there was not enough time for the quiz with the Speed ERS moving to the Saturday, but be assured it’s all stored and ready for next year – though if anyone wants a copy of the “How Well Do You Know The ECC” picture round, please mail me off list!

Now to those who attended and enjoyed it – GO SPREAD THE WORD, lets make next year’s even better and if you’ve yet to sample the weekend – BOOK THE TIME OFF NOW! Although camping is part of the fun, as 2 mates and Oakwood Weekend Virgins found, there are plenty of decent enough B&B’s local to the park if you cannot do without a full English (Welsh?) and a Hot shower! So there’s no excuse really next year!

So just to close, Thanks to the fellow team members, The Parks & their staff and of course all those who attended!
