Scottish Cub Fest?

And just in case you didn't see this on The Cub Mag - here it is again, and for those of you who check both sites, apologies for repeating myself, repeating myself, repea...

Some of you might have heard about the new Scottish bike show, to be held at Lanark on 12/13th May this year. I was considering the idea of having a bit of a Cub get together there - it would make an ideal venue to showcase our Cubs to a new audience, and maybe even meet a few 'like minded' types. The deal from the organisers is a FREE 16 square meter plot indoors, which would give us room for a selection of different models - not scantily clad stick insects, I was thinking more Sports / Mountain / Trials Cubs etc and not forgetting the Terrier, and perhaps some sort of project on the bench, so that people can see the mad things that we Cubbers do!

Might even manage to hook up a slide show with Cub rides and activies shown on a screen - would probably be a charge for an electric hook up, but if the 'Fest' takes off, I can find out more.
I'm sure there are a goodly number of Cub owners in Scotland or the north of England who would relish a weekend away at a bike show, talking bikes, looking at other bikes and generally having a good old time. Being May, the weather might be nice and we could even attept to organise a BBQ for Cub Fest Partakees and Friends.

Any thoughts on this are most welcome, either leave a comment by clicking on the 'comment' link under this post, or email me gbc AT thecubmag.com. If you fancy taking your bike along or helping out by manning the stand for a couple of hours each day, then that would be much appreciated. Contact me in the same way.

If it wasn't such a loooong and cold ride, I'd participate. Sounds like some good ideas there to get the Cub folks together.

Yes however, it is not all bike riders desire to be involved in doing these things.It can get very involving and intense and some people do not want to be involved in that way with clubs etc. This is Mrs GBCs work and she seems to adore it. All the best to her. anon (first time blog reader)

Hello Anon, no need to get involved in the 'heavy stuff', you're more than welcome to pop along to the Cub Fest stall at the Lanark show and say hello. Would be great to meet another blog reader. Do you have a Cub by any chance????

Larry, c'mon, if you set off now....wrap up warm....4 months....you'd make it no probs....

I would like to comment on the comment about not getting involved, but I dare not!

I would comment on Mrs BC's comment about the comment about not getting involved but as I have already decided not to get involved with commenting on the comment about not getting involved I think commenting on Mrs BC's comment on the comment might make me involved so I'll make my comment a "NO COMMENT"
