Thur 28th Jan 2016    Sad News.    We've heard that Graham "Ziggy" Zimbler died in his sleep last night. He has been a regular and enthusiastic member of the bash for the last year and was a frequent contributor of photos to the Bash Facebook page. A thoroughly likeable guy who will be sadly missed.

Ziggy... A message from Pottsie.
Graham "Ziggy" Zimber was new to the Bash in 2015 but he took to it like a fish to water~ as we did to him. He was one of those truly nice guys that was a pleasure to be with and now sadly we've lost him well before his time. He was 72 and leaves 3 children & 6 grandchildren together with many other family members who loved him.

His ex son in law Paul White will keep me informed about further details as and when they become available.

Mon 4th Jan 2016    Scam...    Hi all Bashers ,below you can see the reference to the JULES HOLLAND evening in July.... Unfortunately Unda has since discovered that on trying to finalise a booking that the advert in placed on the Heart Of Devon web site is nothing more than a SOPHISTICATED SCAM . There is NO such event planned! Thanks to Unda's detective work, he, and in turn we, have avoided being ripped off. YES it's ~ Yet another star for Unda's professional investigative journalism skill . So sadly there will be no picnic in the park in July.

Fri 1st Jan 2016    Happy New Year    Best wishes for a grand new year to all Bashers. The now traditional Christmas fancy-dress ride was a brilliant spectacle once again. The Starcross Fishing and Cruising club again hosted the Christmas lunch and very tasty it was too!!.. There are many photographs to be seen on our Facebook page, but here's a composite of some of them. Christmas bash composite
Wed 30th Dec 2015    Jools is coming !!    On July 30th Jules Holland is coming to Powderham Castle,
hopefully it will be a splendid summers evening and we will be able to arrange a "picnic in the park" and have a great time dancing and listening to this wonderful big band of absolutely brilliant muscians and singers. Last time it happened several took camper vans and stayed the night. The Bash ride on Sunday 31st should be organised close at hand too.
SO if you are interested then please let UNDA know ASAP ( or 01626 779387) ~ and provided we get more than 10 people in our party he will be able to arrange a block booking which will save 10% on the ticket price of 35.
