Cat & Fiddle 2010 - 25th to 27th of June 2010

Post by J_M_C » Tue 23 Mar, 2010 14:01

After the popularity of last few years Cat & Fiddle events i have the pleasure in announcing a return to the area this year on the 25th to 27th of June 2010.

Image

The event starts in a little village south of Buxton, Hartington, where we will be staying for the duration in a country hotel:

Charles Cotton Hotel, Hartington, Derbyshire. SK17 0AL

Image

This is the same hotel we have used for the last few years and we are pleased to be using it again after they looked after us so well.

The Hotels Website can be found here

The weekend will involve the normal long runs during Saturday and Sunday including a lunch stop. The runs will also contain a few stops to to take in some of the spectacular scenery on offer.

Image

Our evening meals will be served at our hotel on the Friday and Saturday evenings.

As with other recent format weekends the event starts on the Friday evening - at the hotel.

The cost for accommodation will be around £110 for double room per night and £80 for single occupancy of a double room per night. These costs include Bed, Breakfast and Evening meal - so I think that you will agree, it's a pretty good deal.

Unfortunately the hotel will be restricted to a maximum of 12 rooms due to the limited amount of rooms available.

Please send me a PM if you are interested with the following details:

Name of Driver:
Passengers Name:
Car Make & Model:
Car Reg:
Contact Telephone Number:
E-Mail Address:
Hotel Accommodation Req'd:
Special Dietary Requirements:


I will send details of how to book the hotel (if required) in the next few weeks.

The event was excellent last year and we will be ensuring that this one will be equally as entertaining with excellent roads, scenery, food, company & of course beer & wine :D

Interested Attendees - emboldened are confirmed:

1- John and Laura
2- Graham & Sarah
3- Mike Forshaw
4- Russ & Chris
5- Phil & Marise
6- John & Jean
7- Trevor & Lesley

Hi Guys,

Top job by John & Laura. :bow

We both had a cracking time, thanks for the warm welcome from you all as Cruise Virgins. Hope we did not slow you up too much.......

Thanks for taking pole position Sunday Phil.

Routes, location and grub were the business. :cheers

Think we had better brush up on our Dads Army trivia next time. :rtm:

Will try and get some pics uploaded when I can wrestle the camera off Julie.

Regards Dave.
