September MMM

This is the mail Mike sent out on Monday Sept. 23rd which you all should have got but just in case you’ve not looked at your mail here it is again. Dj aka MF Jones or MoFo :-)

Gentle ones,

Septembers MMM is upon us! Here are the small details for the meet..

First of all can I say a big thank you to MF Jones for our new website….yes….Our MMM has a website to check in with dates for up and coming MMMs and to see photos from past meetings or just to add to the banter on the blog…check out it is brilliant!!

Okay so….

Saturday 28th September– Meet at Whitney on Wye Toll Bridge at 1200 (No Later or we will leave without you!).  We get minibussed back to the start of our Journey to the launch at Hay On wye.  We then Canoe the 5-6 Miles back to Whitney Toll Bridge. At about 1630 we exit the river and leave all canoes and kit at a pre arranged/agreed point.  Get in our cars and make our way to:

Saturday Evening – Our Accomodation – Hay Stables Hay on Wye HR3 5AJ ….Tel 01497 820008.

The set up is as follows….Me and Dad will have the double bed with bolster…

Room 1 … ….3 single beds

Rooms 2 ….. 2 single beds

Rooms 3 ……1 single bed and 1 double bed with a bolster down the middle.

There is enough parking for three vehicles apparently….also there is a large car park about 50 yards away…

I suggest we make the most of Hay on Wyes pubs or takeaways for some grub… and not too later night.

Sunday Morning – After a large breakfast (A large breakfast hamper is included in the price apparently!) Hit the water for 0830-0900. Picking up our canoes and kit we then Canoe Whitney to Hay and Preston – 12 miles and the longest trip we have done yet as an Armada!!

We get picked up from Preston and dropped back to the cars at Whitney….

Should be done by 1600.


I propose the Canoe crews as follows….

HMS Jonah and Son – Me and Dad (Handsome Al) (+ Hot RHOD.RI For the Saturday!)

HMS Walk on Water – RoboCoops and MotherF*cker Jones

HMS Mountain Goats – Andy the Axe and Spanner

HMS F.N.Gs – Specialist Al and Big JB

I for one I cannot wait!! We also need to lock horns over how are going to attack europes longest and fastest zip line in north wales come November!


See you saturday you bunch of lovely boys…
