re: ESK VALLEY GALLON STAKES : SUNDAY 24 JUNE

re: ESK VALLEY GALLON STAKES : SUNDAY 24 JUNE

I was informed last night that hills may be involved. If that's the case, I'll be meeting you in the last pub.

newholgate Posted on 2/6 19:17
re: ESK VALLEY GALLON STAKES : SUNDAY 24 JUNE

Stepper, I asked wheelz about that in the Nops a month or so ago. He sat at his table and said to me:




wheelz: The last hill is the biggest. Its about 1:4 gradient.

me: Is it a long hill?

wheelz: its about....errr....from here to....(starts pointing towards the other side of the room - I breathed a sigh of relief)....errr...from here to the Riverside Stadium I would say.

re: ESK VALLEY GALLON STAKES : SUNDAY 24 JUNE

newholgate Posted on 2/6 19:20
re: ESK VALLEY GALLON STAKES : SUNDAY 24 JUNE

re: ESK VALLEY GALLON STAKES : SUNDAY 24 JUNE

I plan on being there but whats the crack about a meal?!?

Not been mentioned to me before.

newholgate Posted on 2/6 20:36
re: ESK VALLEY GALLON STAKES : SUNDAY 24 JUNE

JS, there is an option of a meal in the last pub if you want to stay for it.

JSawyers200 Posted on 2/6 20:38
re: ESK VALLEY GALLON STAKES : SUNDAY 24 JUNE

If not do I have to make my own way home?

fatknackerlardarse Posted on 2/6 20:39

Yes and you have to run all the way !

re: ESK VALLEY GALLON STAKES : SUNDAY 24 JUNE

Got it this morning knax - cheers.

On a serious note, I probably won't be able to stay for the meal as need to get back so don't want to have to wait around in a pub while others stuff their faces!!

newholgate Posted on 2/6 20:43
re: ESK VALLEY GALLON STAKES : SUNDAY 24 JUNE

Its a good point that JS!

Can FKLA or wheelz please let people know what is happening about this?

If people don't want to stay on at the last pub for a meal, do they have to make their own way home?

fatknackerlardarse Posted on 2/6 20:50
re: ESK VALLEY GALLON STAKES : SUNDAY 24 JUNE

I think we need to get an idea how many people want to stay and have a meal at the last stand.

All those who would like to, please add your name.

re: ESK VALLEY GALLON STAKES : SUNDAY 24 JUNE

Me and SRO are staying for the meal, so if you need to give numbers to the pub, count us in.

I haven't added our names to the list though, just in case you are only after numbers for the bus, because we aren't on the bus anyway. We are getting a lift from Flabby66.


Also, see Flabby's post above mine, re numbers!

TeessideCleveland Posted on 2/6 23:29
re: ESK VALLEY GALLON STAKES : SUNDAY 24 JUNE

A couple of questions
Have we all got transport to and from Teesside guaranteed?
As so many are stopping for a meal it seems we will all be there while the meal is eaten so what time do we anticipate leaving for home?

newholgate Posted on 3/6 8:40
re: ESK VALLEY GALLON STAKES : SUNDAY 24 JUNE

Is there any way we could get a menu from the pub and pre-order our food?

That way, we will be done quicker and those not eating won't have to hang around as long.

fatknackerlardarse Posted on 3/6 10:49
re: ESK VALLEY GALLON STAKES : SUNDAY 24 JUNE

Why not get the last pub to deliver it to the third pub, then we could eat it on the way round.

chboro Posted on 3/6 10:51
re: ESK VALLEY GALLON STAKES : SUNDAY 24 JUNE

Why not just order a pizza? - I'll take a compass and pin point our exact location for the delivery driver

Smifter Posted on 3/6 11:33
re: ESK VALLEY GALLON STAKES : SUNDAY 24 JUNE

Can I have the meal and not do the walk?

JSawyers200 Posted on 3/6 11:50
re: ESK VALLEY GALLON STAKES : SUNDAY 24 JUNE

I CANNOT hang around in the last pub for an extra 2 hours while other people eat.

If that is the only option then unfortunately I am going to have to withdraw from the walk.

Was looking forward to it but never mind.

re: ESK VALLEY GALLON STAKES : SUNDAY 24 JUNE

Last week my brother informed me that he's having his 50th birthday do on the night of the 23rd in the middle of nowhere (ie not far from Consett). This came as a bit of a surprise because he was 50 in January. He decided to have an official birthday, like the queen, because the weather's nicer in June. So it looks like I might not make it, which is a shame.

wheelz Posted on 3/6 12:41
re: ESK VALLEY GALLON STAKES : SUNDAY 24 JUNE

Right, here goes... to try and accommodate all n sundry..!!

Transport OUT:

If all gets confirmed this week, there will be a 29-seater coach (hopefully F.O.C. save for a gratuity for the driver, who has volunteered his services on the day for nowt, ok?); IF there is ANY cost, I will endeavour to take their eye tee... errr, arrange a favourable discount for us, or get a sponsor.

...AND the Wheelies bus gives us another 14 seats available there; so doint the math, we can sort 43 bods maximum

To make it cost effective for the coach, there will have to be ONE pick up, probably the Blue Bell, Acklam, (unless anyone wants to join ch enroute @ BunnyLand junction!);

Otherwise, its make your own way.. btw, you'll have to sort whether to leave your cars at the start or the finish ?

[ps: I'll be going to the last pub later this afternoon, so I'll ask for a menu]

Transport BACK:

Initially, we were looking at setting back about 10:00pm

Provisional time for the meal will be 8:00pm -ish.

Anyone who cannot/does not want to stay for the coach return, WE WILL TRY to sort out via the minibus and set back @ 8pm too, but bear in mind the Wheelies will have priority AND it can only take 14 persons -- tho' I think of the 5 intending to take part + me, most are sorted for lifts... anyway, we'll be out for the duration!

ch -- pizza?? you're quite welcome to order your own!!

Smifter -- "Can I have the meal and not do the walk?" Course you can, darl... as long as you come Paintballing next Saturday!!

Mr Gnome -- you will be sorely missed and conspicuous by your absence... just leave your donation @ the door!!

Any queries or concerns, please get in touch via here or email me
paddy@mdsa.co.uk

b'bye now!!

TeessideCleveland Posted on 3/6 13:06
re: ESK VALLEY GALLON STAKES : SUNDAY 24 JUNE

Thanks for that wheelz
So the buses can take 43 in total?
I make that 36 definites so assuming they are all wanting lifts on the buses there is room for everyone plus another 7?
From what you said earlier the trip takes about an hour so I guess we will get to Boro about 11.00?

Please add me to the list of people eating at the last pub

JSawyers do you live in Stockton?
My wife will be picking me up so if it's any help we could give you a lift from The Bluebell but obviously that would be 11.00ish

Now I assume it's 8 miles when you're sober, hmmm wonder how far it is as a stagger.

fatknackerlardarse Posted on 3/6 21:23
re: ESK VALLEY GALLON STAKES : SUNDAY 24 JUNE

Me and Paddy have been on a scouting mission today, to sus out the Gallon Walk.

We have more or less set the route now,(from Paddys memory) which is the recognised route that all the walkers take, with the exception of a couple of diversions for the Wheelies.

We have called into the last stand(8th boozer) and booked the restaurant for about 8ish, for those that wish to take in some grub and we also have the menus now, so we can pre book our meals.

I will remind Paddy to post them up here tomorrow night.

Any questions ?

Stepper_T Posted on 3/6 21:54

Knax, just to confirm from earlier.. Louis from Metro Coaches is going to loan/sponsor a 29 seater plus driver (Frankie) to take 'the gang' to Goathland and back from Egton Bridge!

Brilliant gesture, eh!

I'll post the arrangements after discussing requirements with him by the weekend, ok mate?

chboro Posted on 6/6 23:40
re: ESK VALLEY GALLON STAKES : SUNDAY 24 JUNE

£2.50 each to tip the driver then?

wheelz Posted on 6/6 23:45
re: ESK VALLEY GALLON STAKES : SUNDAY 24 JUNE

You can be the 'clippie' ch... I think thats very reasonable, btw; hope everyone is of the same mind..

£1.25 return..? well worth it, IMO

Nice one, fella

fatknackerlardarse Posted on 6/6 23:48
re: ESK VALLEY GALLON STAKES : SUNDAY 24 JUNE

Seeing as the lad is giving his services for nothing, I think it is only right that we have a whip round.

The sum of £2.50 sounds good to me.

Watch that ch though Paddy, he may try to pay in sheep or goats !

re: ESK VALLEY GALLON STAKES : SUNDAY 24 JUNE

knax, if you're about...

I need another 5 sponsor forms;

1 for Bob Fischer, who's gonna torment his Radio Clevo colleagues
1 for my college tutors and fellow mature students (!), and
3 for lads in the Portrack Hotel

If you haven't any left, I'll download the one Lurkers e-mailed and copy, but they won't be sequentially numbered, ok?

Let me know asap, pls...

fatknackerlardarse Posted on 6/6 23:53
re: ESK VALLEY GALLON STAKES : SUNDAY 24 JUNE

I do have 5 left mate, I will ring you about dropping them off tomorrow night.

wheelz Posted on 6/6 23:56
re: ESK VALLEY GALLON STAKES : SUNDAY 24 JUNE

Cheers, mate..


btw, if we're pickin ch up @ Bunnyland, he might pay us in rabbit skins if he doesn't fancy us making a ewe turn?




while I think on, could you do me a photocopy of the menus, as I can't get the hang of this bluetooth dongle thingy!!

LOL Jools,

Scanned all the menus in and tried to hyperlink from my saved file, but it kept rejecting; obviously done summat wrong, so typed the fookers instead this am!

Still kept me busy on Fathers Day, eh!!

re: ESK VALLEY GALLON STAKES : SUNDAY 24 JUNE

btw, If any of the 'Walk' participants want to pre-order, drop me an email (paddy@mdsa.co.uk) and I'll knock up a spreadsheet to email over to the landlord


It may be useful for the pub, too, to guarantee they've enough grub in to satisfy the orders, so we don't get any "Sorry, mate, xxxx is off today!"s


chboro Posted on 17/6 13:21
re: ESK VALLEY GALLON STAKES : SUNDAY 24 JUNE

I suppose you are wanting orders now? Right, I'll have first 6 main meals, the last two baguettes and 6 portions of chips please.

re: ESK VALLEY GALLON STAKES : SUNDAY 24 JUNE

I think I pretty much know the rough route.

Did similar routes when I was in the Scouts (minus the pubs in between).

That last hill, we'll have people ringing ahead asking for the cars to come and pick them up.

wheelz Posted on 19/6 22:40
re: ESK VALLEY GALLON STAKES : SUNDAY 24 JUNE

cap.. mebbes a good job we carry a spare wheelchair in the minibus..!!


Does anyone else want to pre-order grub, btw?

I'll be sending all orders received to the pub on Friday morning

newholgate Posted on 20/6 7:25
re: ESK VALLEY GALLON STAKES : SUNDAY 24 JUNE

I'll pre-order that spare wheelchair for the last hill!

flabby66 Posted on 20/6 16:25
re: ESK VALLEY GALLON STAKES : SUNDAY 24 JUNE

am going to hich a lift on the back of tommys power chair we also have spare wheelchair if needed.

wheelz Posted on 20/6 17:14
re: ESK VALLEY GALLON STAKES : SUNDAY 24 JUNE

flabby.. just a word to the wise.. a power chair may not be the ideal, as we have to negotiate getting over a stile midway, enroute to Grosmont, to stay on the 'track'; otherwise you'll have to make a 3 mile detour (approx) to avoid a 1-in-3 hill...

with the 'manuals', at least they're easier to fold up and lift over ( --after tippin the wheelies out, of course!)

newholgate Posted on 20/6 17:14
re: ESK VALLEY GALLON STAKES : SUNDAY 24 JUNE

Flabby, SRO will pre-order your spare wheelchair then

Just need someone to push us now

flabby66 Posted on 22/6 20:11
re: ESK VALLEY GALLON STAKES : SUNDAY 24 JUNE

thanks for the info re power chair....is it just that section of the walk that it wont be suitable for or the whole thing? just that eddie62 is going from pub to pub with the van so a swap could be done to manual for that part of the walk. please advice.

wheelz Posted on 22/6 20:29
re: ESK VALLEY GALLON STAKES : SUNDAY 24 JUNE

flabby, if it was MY personal choice, I wouldn't use a power, but its up to youz.. you might need to swap quite often!! The last part (a 1 in 4 incline) might seriously test it, IMHO...

wheelz Posted on 22/6 20:31

Isn't Saltburn bank 1 in 4?

If so, is this bank the same length as Saltburn bank? Longer?

We need to be prepared. Especially as I will be virtually sober when I get there

wheelz Posted on 23/6 0:38
re: ESK VALLEY GALLON STAKES : SUNDAY 24 JUNE

TO ALL THOSE PARTICIPATING IN THE WALK...

On behalf of MDSA, please accept our sincere thanks for putting yourselves out for us.


A few words to the wise.. common sense I know, but here goes anyway:

PLEASE wear suitable footwear, (or suffer the consequences!);

PLEASE take a waterproof, even if its a plastic sheet, etc, just as a precaution (click on the link for the likely weather on the day)

PLEASE don't suffer needlessly -- if you're struggling, or see someone else less than 100%, let us know; there is a support crew on hand. The last thing we want are 'casualties'.

PLEASE obey the 'Country Code' esp. re: closing gates; respecting people, property, and livestock; littering; etc. If you smoke, please ensure your fag ends are properly extinguished.

PLEASE take your time.. its not a race, and there's no time limit to be finished by.

PLEASE drink responsibly we dont wany any dehydros!!

Finally, and most importantly,

PLEASE ENJOY YOURSELVES!!!

Thanks again..

I've been really bad with hayfever over the last couple of days as it is. If it ends up like it was for paintballing, i'll be fooked. I'm really strugging to get my breath at the mo. My chest is really tight and wheezy and my nose is full of snot. I'm hoping and praying for rain!

Flabby, I already use local honey.

Believe me, I know every remidy. I've got a book almost as thick as a Bible with different ones, and over the years I've tried pretty much everything.

Its still no better



Ch, yeah, if I die, I hope you get wet

All the grub orders have been placed with the last pub, and travel arrangements confirmed.

Thanks to Century fm (and me ol' mucker Alistair Brownlee!) we have had a box of weather-proof ponchos donated from their marketing peeps to keep us all dry in the event of any downpours..

Sir Knacker of Lardarse will be delegated to issue them on the 'big bus'.. make sure you get one of him, or they'll end up on Doggy Market!!

I'll dish them out on the Wheelies bus.



Thank you Century fm..

All that's needed now, is everyone to turn up and have a good day. See yaz all tomorrow!!
