dear all,
finally time to get some invitations out for this years do.
Some people couldn't wait and have already booked hotel rooms : )

As usual, everybody is welcome . . .

This year the date is set for Saturday August 16th 2014,

at: Usinger Strasse 21, D61267 Neu-Anspach Westerfeld, Germany.
Which is again the same weekend as the Schottenring Oldtimers Grand Prix, classic bike 'racing' event on August 16th and 17th.



We will be riding out together on Saturday morning to visit the Schottenring, returning back to THE CRANKCASE. for evening refreshments and chat.

Followed by more ride outs together on Sunday and Monday or until everybody has departed . .

Here you can see a photo gallery of the 2013 tea party on our website: http://thecrankcase.com/?seite=tea%20party%202013%20p1&lang=en

You are also welcome to arrive early and stay later- many of those coming from further away usually arrive on Friday and leave on Monday which gives us time to visit Schotten again on Sunday or take a couple of tours together around the local roads.
hope to see you then, but please let us know if you will be coming by, even if you don't need accommodation, so that we can arrange to have enough cups : )

best wishes and we are really looking foward to a fantastic long weekend again.

Just 4 more weeks to go, both Hotels are full on Saturday night, but Friday and Sunday are still available, plus camping in Usingen or one of the B&Bs near by.
We also will have our friends The double dylans http://www.doubledylans.de/pictures.html playing slightly off beat, Bob Dylan inspired numbers in the Yard on Saturday night.
If you are also interested to join us, please let us know so we will have enough Cups : )
let the chaos roll on : )
Ian

a few pics from the weekend, which was loads of fun, lots of people (around 80 ish), nice rides, reasonable weather and we had a band for the first time.
Only negative might be that it all went far too quickly.


The Double Dylans did a brilliant job on Saturday night.


Ken brought 2 bikes this year, he needed a hand with one of them.


The DB2 got a sound thrashing on Saturday thanks to Marcus and agian by me on the Sunday ride.


Marcus following Glen out the yard on Saturday morning to go to Schotten.


Phil Read on a Suzuki RG500 at Schotten.


Garry, Patrick, Stefan, Andrew and Glen enjoying a well earned beer or 2 after getting back in one piece.


Not too many BImotas this year but nothing wrong with that : )


The aftermath . . .

Loads more to see on the website: http://thecrankcase.com/?seite=photo%20albums&lang=en

all the best
Ian
and Brigitte

next trip Glemseck 101 Cafe racer sprint near Stuttgart : )

Then it's the Distinguished Gentleman's Ride on Sunday September 28th, so if you are not particpating yourself in your local ride, we would be most happy to recieve sponsorship towards prostate cancer research, details here:
