Big Knock 2020

Post by Stuart » Thu Mar 26, 2020 4:44 pm

So, because of the Covid 19 outbreak, we’ve put things on hold for the moment. The camping site at the pub is shut. I’ve added a link to it on the rally page link here:
http://www.dieselbike.net/Rally-Info/rally.htm

We are not sure how this will play out regarding T shirts either so it’s just possible there may not be any this year.

Stay safe everyone!

Shame to hear about that, however I consider the health of my diesel biking friends more important than a single rally.
Perhaps we can postpone the rally to a later date?

Hope you are all in good health.

Real shame about this Stuart but I guess sadly unavoidable. Very much hoping we've all got back to some kind of normality in time for Hamm this year as well. Hope everyone is staying safe and well.

Yes Dan,

Hamm could be even bigger & better if we’re all bottled up until then?

This could affect the Sommer Treff as well of course.

Strange times!

Well even though we are now allowed out for a ride I’m gonna miss the Big Knock.

So I’m buying a raft of widget Guinness, putting the tent up at the bottom of the garden and cooking myself a burger on the BBQ followed by talking bollox to myself whilst sitting around a campfire for the evening.

Friday and Saturday.

I think I’m starting to loose the plot.......

I think I might cry if Hamm is cancelled :(

The Oakfields camping site at the Bat and Ball is opening soon.
“We re-open on 13th July 2020!

Please visit our website for all the information on how we intend to keep you safe and how to book”

www.haywards-batandball.co.uk/camping

I did wonder whether we could have a Big Knock the week prior to Hamm, solely for the purpose of riding there together & taking those along that have never been?

FFS Dave! Do you ever have all of them in one piece at the same time? :)

On a serious note... is Hamm still on? I did drop Raf a message on Twitter to check if it was still on but no reply yet. Anyone else managed to confirm?

Heads up the 30th course de côte du Gaschney in France is planned for 22 – 23 August. Only 3 weeks before Hamm.

It’s a shame it wasn’t closer as we’d definitely do both then.
I’ve not heard anything about Hamm but am guessing the second outbreak nr Köln might be the reason.
Still hopeful it’ll go ahead.
