    Hi All
    Next year is Triking`s 40th Anniversary , I thought it would be good to celebrate this occasion with an event. My initial thoughts are a weekend in South/West Norfolk (but completely understand if no one fancies Norfolk again next year), is this something that would appeal ?? Just trying to gauge interest/attendance.

    Hi Nicki.
    Good idea! No matter where it took place, we’d certainly try to fit it into our calendar (depending on clashes with other commitments).

    Best wishes,

    Great idea, we’re up for it, there’s still a great deal of Norfolk to throw the three wheels around. Anyway, as was said previously, its meeting up with everyone that is the highlight of the meet.

    Hi Nicki,
    Are we anywhere near deciding on a date ? The German Three Wheeler Meet is scheduled for the weekend starting 1st Sept 2018 in Scotland.

    Hi Nicki,
    We’ve just discovered that we won’t be able to make the German 3-wheeler meeting next year, so we’re really, really, really hoping that we can manage the Triking 40th Anniversary gathering. Just to add to Andy’s question!
    Best wishes,

    Hi Nikki

    Any news on dates yet? I will be away after xmas till April but still contactable via email. As I mentioned before I am happy to assist and I have a number of North Norfolk routes we could adapt from runs that the NNCVC have done in the past. I could easily adapt one or two depending on where we started from.
    Happy xmas

    Hi All
    Weekend 22nd June – 24th June 2018
    We want to make this event as informal and flexible as we could to enable everyone to take part .. timings (apart from the date bit ) and schedule is flexible everyone is welcome to come for all or just an evening or afternoon.
    We can book 14 rooms at Broome Hall Saham Toney https://www.broomhallhotel.co.uk room rates are from £85-£150 per room per night , I think there may be room for manoeuvre on the price depending on number of rooms booked.
    I am sure we can find campsites and or B&B’s in the local area if people would prefer.
    I would be grateful if anyone wanting a room would let me know asap and I can contact Broome Hall to book the rooms.
    love Nicki

  • #12213

    Brilliant Nicki.

    I don’t believe it, another date clash, just as we’ve arranged a holiday in Scotland to see Stephen and Joanna along with their guests David and Avril. We have really been looking forward to this holiday in Scotland so it looks like we are going to miss out on this meet, what a bug**r!!!

  • #12219

    David Q
    Participant

    We’ve also just read the posting. Ugh. As Dick has said, we (Avril and I) have planned a trip to Scotland for the coming June (with our Triking) and had arranged to stay for a few days with Stephen and Joanna, which we have discovered overlaps with the 40th anniversary meeting. It’s now too late for us to change our travel plans without major disruption to other friends and family. We’ve just been speaking with Stephen and Joanna about this conflict and have reached the conclusion that we’ unfortunately have to miss the 40th Anniversary gathering. We hadn’t actually realised that Dick and Myra were also coming to Scotland at the same time (although knew they might be able to come up), but I know this is a bitter blow for us all.

    Hi, Vicki – I’ve been looking for an excuse to make a trip back to the UK, and I think this is it (especially as that weekend is my wife’s birthday). Will be fun to see some of the people I’ve only communicated with online . Can you reserve an upstairs double room for my wife and I for Friday and Saturday nights, DBB, if available.

    Thanks

    It would certainly suit us 1 or 2 weeks later, but don’t spoil it for everyone, I know what it’s like to plan a meet, it’s not always easy to please all; however, if it is possible we would certainly be there.

    Hi Nicki,
    Clearly the answer is “yes”, but I feel that so many people have already replied that you should leave things as they are and not risk disruption and someone else not being able to make a new date. That seems unfair to me. We’ll toast you all with some good Whisky and retail you afterwards with unlikely tales of our adventures!

    Hi Nicky
    We certainly would love to be there but unfortunately we have already arranged to be away from 21st June for 10 days.
    Like others, if it should be practical to make a date change later or earlier then that would be perfect.

    Hi Nicky and all,

    Hilary and I would like to come please. We are no longer selling the trike as we like it too much and I will engineer myself out of the problem with a large screen sat nav and Bluetooth headset !
    We can make both dates but prefer the earlier option as the roads will be busy with school holidays starting on the later date..

    Hi Nicky,

    We can add weight to what looks like a clear preference for the earlier date (6-8 July) as this would also be the best option for Axel, Jürgen Weigle and myself. If this proves to be the final date, please book us two doubles and one single room in the hotel, if possible.

    Many thanks and looking forward to it!!

    Paul, plus Axel and Jürgen

    Phew. I tried to book last night but they hadn’t got the meeting in their computer yet so asked me to call back today. In the interim I was worried (well, secretly pleased) by the large number of posts about successful bookings, but I’ve managed to get a room as well. Nicki, I suspect you will indeed need to book more rooms 🙂 This will be my second trip to the UK with my Triking this year. It would have been three, but we’re very disappointed not to be able to make the German Treffen. Mind you, Avril’s secretly happy to have more time for her garden 🙂

    Perhaps it would be a good idea to get into training now Eric, live your life for the next six months in our time zone. Hopefully your neighbours will not complain too much. Looking forward to meeting you both do bring some pictures of your Triking. I am particularly interested in your painting system and may well try it myself.

    Thanks for the suggestion, Richard -unfortunately I’m pretty regimented as far as mealtimes, bedtime, etc., which makes the jet lag thing worse. We have friends who seem to snack and nap any time of day or night, and jet lag doesn’t seem to bother them.
    Calling it a painting “system” is going too far – I just kept spraying until my spraying finger got tired or the wind picked up some dust. However, I’ll be happy to share my experiences and some photos with you.

    Oops! Took my eye off the ball for two days while we got involved with putting our house on the market and the hotel is fully booked!
    No worries, we will take our chances nearer the date when we can see where we are going (I thought that was my problem!!).
    Have looked at all other accommodation so hope to be there.

    I’m jealous

    Cant make it to the UK this year as was over last year for a birthday bash.
    I will think of you all drinking real British beer and eating pub food. Canadian although palatable is not the same.
    I know the The Olde Windmill Inn from the days of my teens and early 20s sure we eat there, definitely drank the beer!

    Niki thanks for the welcome when I dropped by last June.

    Best of fun to all for the weekend.

    What would everyone like to do on the Sunday ? I have spoken to Broom Hall unless people are staying on for an extra night the rooms have to be vacated by 11am on the Sunday morning .
    We are out and about all day on Saturday, I am not sure if people are leaving to drive home or would like to have another drive around /
    ?visit somewhere .
    Please let me know your thoughts or ideas.
    Nicki 🙂

    Hi Nicki,

    We have to back at my sister’s in Whittlesford (near Cambridge) for an evening meal, so would be interested in another tour on Sunday. Since we’ll have everything packed in our Triking we can split from whatever tour you arrange at any convenient time or place!

    Best wishes,

    David & Avril

    We are still deciding on what to order due to the pausity of choice relevant to this Triking Anniversary, have the restaurants missed a Trick or three?
    I was hoping for;

    Tripe,
    Tripple Cooked chips
    Triffle

    The beer of choice would have to be Tripple Sec

    Bon Apperti

    So here we go:
    My food choice: Friday: Crispy Breadcrumbed Mushrooms, Steak & Kidney Pie, no dessert thank you

    Saturday: Paté, Beef, Gateau

    Co-driver Nick’s food choice: Friday: Crispy Breadcrumbed Mushrooms, Chicken New Yorker, no dessert thank you

    Three weeks to go and an appeal: Please can anyone who has a dash cam or Go Pro type camera please check them and that they fit and work in the Triking safely. Also if everyone can take some pictures over the week-end I will collate them into a slide show to go with the videos to remember the fortieth and show at the Fiftieth perhaps?
    Your individual contribution will be very much appreciated and we may even get enough pictures to encourage Tony to produce another calendar.
    Many thanks

      Thanks for an excellent weekend in South Norfolk, part of the county that Anne and I always speed through and never stop at! Good hotel and food with some superb routes for us to follow. Thanks also to all of those who provided support for making it such a great weekend. Look forward to next year, hopefully with a car that doesn’t need bump starting!

    Just to add our thanks for a wonderful meeting. Well done to Nicki and Alan and their merry band of helpers! We thoroughly enjoyed ourselves and the interesting drives, visits and good food (far too much of it – the diet starts today!). Thanks to everyone who attended for again confirming our opinion that all Trikingists (or whatever we call ourselves) and partners are a highly enjoyable bunch of enthusiasts that we always really enjoy meeting up with. We look forwards to the next meeting.

    To Nicki, Alan, the Org. Team and everyone of you may I add my thanks to the long list above. I have to agree with David Q – Trikingistas (or whatever we want to call ourselves) are a lovely bunch of people and following the Saturday evening quiz we now know why: Because they’ve all got a wheel missing … or as they say in Germany (Richard, Everybody – repeat after me!!): Sie haben alle ein Rad ab!!!

    Looking forward to seeing some of you in Scotland very soon and thanks again
