Hello everybody ,,,well I am just home after a 3 hour ride on my 1800 in 80 mph winds and rain from the wild weekend in Portumna Co Galway ,,,We had a ball ,A big thank you to everybody who turned up and really had a ball ,,There was singing and dancing and general acting the goat until the small hours ,,The Shannon Oaks hotel will never be the same again ,,,

Once again THANK YOU for turnig up,there were 130 wingers and partners representing every corner of Ireland ,and would you believe because of the weather only myself and 2 other lunatics turned up on our goldwings ,,

I think we should change the name to the goldwing CAR owners club of Ireland ,The hotel was first class and the dinner and breakfast excellent ,I have no doubt we will make a return visit to Portumna (even if it is only to apologise for the first )

It was great to see everbody joining in the sing song last night .I think I was one of the few who was only drinking water and woke up this morning with a killer of a hangover ,,I have put it down to the smell of drink from the others at my table ..

I look forward to another wild weekend soon ,,,cheers an thank you all for coming ...Ciaran Meyler ..leinster rep ..GWOCI...:waving::waving:

Well done Ciaran. It was a great weekend and you picked a great venue. The Hotel was super and the swimming pool kept the kids out of trouble. Glad you made it home safe, it can't have been much fun hauling the trailer back to Wexford with the gusts.

Im pleased you lads had a great weekend, more importantly got home safely, whilst we were cutting up fallen trees across our roads in force 11 gales.

I see wexman suffers from passive drinking now.

Hi Wexman,:action:

Once again well done for a great WING FLING. Its hard enough to keep a Wing vertical when your sober let alone when you have fifteen pints of porter on board.

Hotel and food were fab.

Tisa brave man who takes out a wing in that weather.

The photo is my first attempt so here goes.:waving:

Hey oldwang, :waving: Your very welcome to the forum. :clapper: Ok you are excused this time for your absence, :baffled: but remember your only a short flight away. :stumped: Next year when you come over to this function you can sing the song "Im off to alabama with the banjo on my knee" :leprechaun:I wasn't at this function either, :crying:wexman wouldnot allow me, :baffled: in case i might start trouble. :whip:

Sounds like fun, unfortunately the other side of the planet is a little to far to go for a night out.
