Anyone up for a pancake run before christmas????
I reckon Saturday 1st December we may even get a turkey pancake:search:
C'mon Guys you know it makes sense
(all other dates considered)

How about either next Sunday or the Saturday after that? :innocent:

As long as we go before the snow falls on the high ground i.e. Horseshoe pass and Snowdonia then thats fine, i aint driving on roads with 200ft drops either side with no barriers to stop you:Pling:

Havard
28-10-07, 11:39
I am up for pancakes whenever, may need to look at our baby sitting position though!

I think a run along the A55 will be ok even if the roads are shite. Horse Shoe Pass in the wet/snowy would be a definite NO NO for me!

Are we thinking Saturday 17th or Sunday 18th?
Could do with knowing quite soon as I've got the chance of overtime every weekend from now until Christmas but the company would like to know dates when I will be available:rolleyes:

Thanks!

hoff
29-10-07, 15:09
Have we agreed on a date yet? Do we need to add a poll? And are we meeting at the top of the horse shoe pass again? We could always meet at the bottom if the weather is too bad.

Edit; beet me to it Geth. You talking about november yeh?

Cadburys Purple
29-10-07, 15:13
Yeah definitely November. Wouldn't fancy being one of the TT boys up there in mid December!!!

hoff

Cadburys Purple
29-10-07, 15:21
Na, really wanted to but I've got plans that weekend:(

That's why, this time, the pancake run must be completed!:p

bigcol
30-10-07, 08:46
well im easy but i think everyone so far wants the 10th so we need to get it sorted i posted another thread but i dont know why i bothered, lets just go every week till it snows

30-10-07, 08:57
Well I think we need the regulars or it wont be the same. That includes you geth, even as a part timer on the day:p

DaveSupTT
30-10-07, 08:59
Im up for this one as well, but ill have to see what date you all decide on first! Sounds like a good day out though. What generally happens, ie where do you all drive through, whats the route?

hoff
30-10-07, 09:04
The guys from the NW normally meet at a few places before meeting us at the top of the horse shoe pass in north wales. From there we take picturess route to bala and then to betis-y-coed before heading to the pancake house near conway. The route to the various stops can differ but if you look at the previous threads that will give you an idea and some pics. Its a good drive and topped off with great food:)

May be able to do the 10th so put kate and I down as a maybe! You still going on Sunday Ste? Do you fancy meeting up somewhere this side of the M62? If H is being mean and wont let Vicky take the supra there could be a spare seat as I dont think Kate is coming.

hoff
30-10-07, 09:53
Guys should we merge the two threads?

Good Idea Adam.

Otherwise this is going to get very confusing having two threads for what could be the same pancake run!!!!

Those panckes better be worth it!!!

30-10-07, 13:27
Well see what happens int it. Im meeting mike tomorrow straight after work to check that leak out and have a look at the sarter motor. Probably wont be able to sort the leak out tomorrow though, cause we dont know where its coming from yet. Hopefully its just the first seal though, so can pick one up and get it done pretty easily.

hoff

Well, we usually meet you huys at the pondarosa. But if you dont fancy it we could meet in Llangollen at the bottom. Or somewhere else if you prefer.

Unfortunately im going to have to miss this one, :( but I defiantly want to come next time! Sounds like a good day out. BTW if anyone fancies it, Sunday 9th December there are a few of us planning to go for a bite to eat at the Windmill Tavern, so if anyone fancies it just put your name on the list and ill reserve tables etc. Have a fun time guys.

You Lancashire/Cheshire guys could meet me at Penyffordd Railway Station as per the last time I tagged along, then meet everyone else at the Ponderosa if that's the route we're taking.

hoff
05-11-07, 16:41
Idealy I need to meet at Ponderosa or as i said somewhere near as Im south of there. Probably you guys stick to meeting where you know then meet at ponderosa at 12 like usual. Unless anyone has any other suggestions:search:

I came along on a Pancake run at the end of May or June. The route everyone chose to take went about half a mile from my house, so they stopped off at Penyffordd Station car park to wait for me.

On this (http://www.multimap.com/maps/?hloc=GB|penyffordd#t=l&map=53.15158,-3.04052|14|4&loc=GB:53.15746:-3.04052:14|penymynydd|Penymynydd,%20Chester,%20Cheshire,%20England,%20CH4%200) map, the station is right next to where the A5104 crosses the railway.

If you can make it to my unpronounceable Welsh village, I can get you to the Ponderosa and Bala Lake. :)

Which route we take from there will determine whether or not I might know the roads! The run I came on took us almost to Dollgellau, so I was just following the car in front without a clue where I was heading.

Just checked the met office website. It says it will be mainly dry with maybe the odd light shower. Not bad visability, occassional lowish cloud. But it will be windy, so carefull you dont get blown off the horseshoe pass:D So weather wise its looking ok:)

nothing wrong with getting blown on the horeshoe pass:d

Good to put a few more faces to names on here too. Did anyone manage to get any decent photos? I got a couple of the rear of Pete's car while it was light, but they're a bit blurry!

If anyone fancies a repeat pancake-athon between Christmas and New Year, I think I might be free ;):innocent:

Pete
10-11-07, 21:13
As above, great time. Got in 20mins ago so not a bad return trip.
Apart from some arse in a Merc who thought he'd got a faster car than me. This led to some wheel spinning at 60/70 on a slight bend of the A5 and a swift good bye to the Merc. :innocent:

I'll post up the few pics when I get them off the cam.
