    Check this out several guys have expressed an
    interest in this and it does in fact look like fun.

    But it's not that far away so now would be a good time
    to start thinking about places to stay ect. At least
    three guys have indicated that they want to go. So how
    about a little feed back here if you have an interest.
    Maybe we can put soemthing together. The thougth at
    the moment is to stay one night.
  2. Yep that is the one Dave, this will be first for me really looking forward to it. We are stumped on where to get rooms got any ideas?

    As far as I know no one is locked into dates yet so we can more then likely go the same day as you. It's always good to see friends.

    There's never enough rooms, or good enough rooms.
    You have to confirm & "pay in advance" for someone to keep them for you.
    I once booked by phone to a hotel I'd stayed at twice before, & on the day when I rolled up someone else had the rooms. They arrived earlier & just offered more money. It's tough!
  4. Found one that says it in Dan Sai Phu Pha Nam Resort ,are yuo familiar with it is ti really in Dan Sai?

    Ain't cheap :lol:
  5. Phu Pha Nam Resort is about 13 km east of Dan Sai near the junction of Rd 203 and Rd 2013 in Kok Ngam
  6. We have booked five rooms in Phu Ruea as close as we could get about 30 Klms from Dan Sai.

    The name of the hotel is Phu Ruea resort

    Phone numbers:

    042-899 048

    The riders who haev comitted to go are:

    See you there late Friday. I will be riding over from Cnx. Got a room booked in town somewhere via my local contact.
    I plan to be in Dan Sai 2 nights - Frid 4th & Sat 5th - with Sunday 6th probably Loei.
    It will be good to see you again.
  8. Thanks David I found that one as well but for some reason my computer won't open the event schedule. Is it about the same or very different?
  9. Ok this is where things stand at the moment some of us will be coiming up Thursday adn others on Friday. One guy decided not to spend the nihgt so we have one room available if soemone needs it. Please let me know quickly as I have to change to include Thursday. If no one wants the room I need to cancel it.
  10. Ray & Co
    Good to see you guys are on the ball.
    I too will be arriving in Dan Sai Thursday 2nd now, after a phone from my local contact yesterday advising that the parade starts on Friday, so you need to be in town on Thursday night to catch the build up to the event & the parade Friday.
    See you all there then.
  11. See you then
