URGENT UPDATE TO STE'S ELAN RUN 2016! PLEASE READ NOW!!

Post by sharky » Sun Jan 31, 2016 6:30 pm

Hi guys and gals,

Right as some of you may or may not know, the elan hotel closed down earlier this year! :shock:
I have been monitoring the situation as I was told it was being refurbished by a new owner.
I have now been able to speak to them and the hotel is now back open! :dance:
However, there are now two rooms less than there were.
Another down point is that the new owners bought the hotel from a bank who had put it into liquidation.
As far as I know they are not the original people who were going to buy it. This has left us without our reservations for the weekend of the planned run!
To add to this, there is a local event on in the area at that Tim too!
This means the elan, and all the hotel etc are fully booked!

With everything taken into consideration, I am moving the dates of the run to Friday 6th, Saturday 7th and Sunday 8th of May.
I am sorry if this means anyone cannot make the run, but I have no other choice.
It is two weeks earlier than originally planned and I hope that all that are planning to come still can.

Now, the second point.

As I said, the elan is now down to eight rooms. I have reserved them all and booked in Denise, Nick and Steph, and of course Sue and myself. I don't think it fair that I should decide who loses their room, so I would please ask you to call the hotel and book your room. It will obviously be first come first served until the remaining 5 rooms have been filled.

David is the new owner and has been very helpful with me and will be able to take your bookings.
You need to quote the XJR OWNERS CLUB when you call so he knows it is for one of my reserved rooms.
The telephone number is 01597 811208
David will close off the restaurant area for us and as always everyone will be welcome to join us for food etc, and David also doesn't mind if anyone staying at other hotel wants to park their bikes with ours in the car park.

I really hope you can all still make it! :respekt: :drunk:

JUST TO CONFIRM THE NEW DATES ARE:- FRIDAY 6th, SATURDAY 7th AND SUNDAY 8th MAY!

Looking forward to seeing you all! :drunk: :drunk: :drunk:
ride it like ya stole it
