    It's on again next weekend 10-11 Nov.
    A bunch of riders are going from Sisaket and more from Ubon but not sure of numbers.
    Last year they put on a good show, see my report at;

    Anybody else going ?
    I will post a report in the North Eastern Section of the Board.
    Cheers,
    Peter

    Forgot to mention;
    See last years post. It is actually at Aranyaprathet near the border not at Sa Kaeo.
    Cheers,
    Peter

    Doug I only know of the Arun Mermaid because a number of us stayed there. At 700B it is more than I would normally pay but sharing it at 350 each it was good.
    A number of the guys stayed just down the road at a cheaper place but I never went there, however I am sure that being Thailand there will be plenty of alternatives.
    You could always do what the Sepang crowd did and camp on the grass at the venue. Quite a few did that last year.
    Hope to see you there. My phone no is 0814709020. Give me a call if you make it.
    Cheers, Peter.

    Udon Ride Plan

    I think the start time has been changed to 0700, if you want to meet with them let me know and I will confirm it.

    Lucky normally likes to pay between 200 and 400 baht for a room, the ones at that rate were already full that he knew about.
