SCUK Summer Bash
The 8th SCUK Summer Bash coming at ya. Tents, BBQ and beers in a field near Tamworth and snowboarding Saturday night at the SnowDome.
With a huge turn out for the best ever SCUK Winter Bash in Tignes in January, it's only right that we go for a biggy for the SCUK Summer Bash 2009 in July. The Summer Bash is an excuse for a spot of camping fun and a big shred session. Everybody is welcome, whether you're a SCUK member or not. Why not bring your dog.
It's loose and goes something like this:
BookingYou book everything separately, so you can join in as much as you want.
Pre-booking adrenalin tubing and snowboarding is via Tamworth SnowDome directly on 08448 000011 - please quote "SCUK Summer Bash". SCUK Members who pre-book will get the session for half-price.
CampingWe are in the same field as last year. Directions below.
Dunx will be carting along a gas BBQ, so bring carbon-based foodstuffs for traditional incineration. Naturally, drinks are also encouraged, perhaps fruit based... hops or apple suggested.
In an effort to save tents and the field there will be a single camp fire, with no exceptions - this is the only SCUK Bash rule we have. The fire will keep us all warm in to the early hours and act as a focus for the sacrifice of afore-mentioned foodstuffs, beverages and any tribal dancing that ensues.
There are no actual camping facilities at the field, so we'll be supplying a porta-loo. We're talking basic okay – a chance to get to know the "dirty" you.
Cost: This will be £10 per person for the weekend. We'll collect cash only during the weekend.
Alternatively, lightweights can seek comfort at the Travel Inn across the road from the SnowDome, but you will be jeered, sneered and leered at by the hardcore campers who are having heaps more fun!
During the dayAndy (SCUK:passtherizla) will be leading the local skate charge some time during the day.
We'll have volleyball and football nets with us. Somebody always brings a frisbee. Gary from the SnowDome also normally brings his kiteboard too.
I know snowboarders are too kool for skool, but adrenalin tubing is fun. Launch yourself down the slope on a huge tyre. Two sessions available on Saturday night between 7.45 to 8.15pm and 8.15 to 8.45pm.
Cost: £5 pre-booked SCUK members or £8.50 otherwise. There is space for 25 people per session and it's first-come, first-served.
SnowboardingNaturally, we'll be doing more than a spot of snowboarding thanks to the SnowDome, who will host a special park session on Saturday night from 10pm to 1.30am. Ramps, quarter pipe, walls, rails, boxes, pipes and snow for all levels.
MC Tim Sandy will be doing the honours and there will be a DJ and late bar till 1.00am. We'll be hosting impromptu comps throughout the night.
Cost: SCUK members that pre-book will get SnowDome member's rates - so with SnowDome's current Summer Savings that's just £16 for adults! That's half price if you pre-book and you're a SCUK member.
Partners and Sponsors
CampsiteWe're in the same field as last year.
For those with SatNav, the nearest postcode is B78 3AT on Hints Lane, which is pretty much spot on. Google Map link.
Here's the directions from the M42, Junction 10:
From the north:
We will of course put SCUK signs wherever possible to guide you in! Please remember we are guests of the farmer and treat his field with respect.
SnowDomeRoad access to Tamworth SnowDome is a doddle off the M42.
Remember the Tamworth Snowdome has a minimum recreational standard - this basically means you can link turns, control your speed and you're not a danger to others. It doesn't matter whether you own the SnowDome or not, you will be asked to leave the slope on Saturday night if you are so drunk you are seen to be a danger to others.
The SCUK Summer Bash event page can be administered by dunx (Dunx), stu (Stu Brass), spencer (Spencer Claridge) and office (Office).
