IOW August Bank Holiday

Recommended Posts

Is anyone going to the I.O.W. scooter rally, August bank holiday ? Bar Italia SC are going so if anyone wants to ride down with us on the Friday, contact Al or me via this forum.

I used to go to all the Untouchable events at the rally (since it was a safe bet you'd hear great music and punters were err.. how should I say this, cleaner than your average camper). I haven't been the last couple of years (since NUTS abandoned the island) so does anyone know what soul events are on this year ?

Kolla I though two bob rob didn't host it in IOW anymore, i though it had moved to Margate. There always were about 8 dos on apart from the NUTs one, is it a case that they carried on regardless? It was a blast going from venue to venue on a saturday night, that, along with scaring the natives made it a fun weekend.....

Hurly girly - you didnae read my post properly.. I know Rob and chums fled to Margate a couple of years ago. That's the reason I'm asking if anyone knows what the alternatives are at the IOW rally...

I want to avoid anywhere that might spring a hideous surprise on me ... for example - One time I wandered into a bar that was playing Northern tunes... NEXT thing i know they brought on Ian Page as a surprise guest PA (that happened to me a few years ago and never really got over it)

Mischief - where are you and Naughty going to be swinging your flares ?

You don't have to be young again to regress back to a time of Lambrettas soul music, baggy trousers---Oh no, isn't that another thread.

Anyway, I'm sure my spencers slowed my TV175 down.

I'l make it on the Sunday for the ride out.

Fellow TV 175 er here. Beautiful, silver 8 mirros, 5 lights, and three ariels. (no fox tail, that is murder) Cost me a fiver from a bitter divorced wife ;-))

Sold it to a guy who turned it into a ratty chop.

I've never been right since.

As soon as I was 17 in 1975 I got me first scooter, after first wanting one when I was about 10. Very useful for transport to soulnights around sw lancs, St helens Court School of Dancing(I kid you not) then Geraldo Club, on Thursday Leyland Public Hall on Monday, and Wigan most of the rest of the week.

Anyone remember the Backstabbers Scooter Club from St Helens? From around 1973. They used to come over to Burscough Football Cub Soul night on Tuesdays.

Spookily enough one of the girls from our office told me today that she is off to the IOW for a scroter rallee (gawd help you all) It's her third or fourth rally but her first travelling on a scootery thing, made me chuckle i can tell you.

If that wasn't enough a guy came down to audit my filing system to comply with the Freedom of information act & at the end of it he noticed the 45 i had as a screen saver and asked me if i was into Northern well obviously i said yes but more your 70's stuff and blow me down if that wasn't exactly what he was into as well :o))

Last year at Hipshaker they let all the "Scooter Boys" in and the atmosphere was rather tense, with them spilling beer on the dance floor and the "mods" trying to keep out of the way.

I'm a bit late to this thread but I was going to say that we at Hipshaker also have 3 nights at the IOW. Guest DJ's over the 3 nights are Paul Hallam, Rob Messer, Richard Brown, Eddie Piller, Pete Tebbutt, Dom Cater, Shifty, Molly and Jim Watson.

As ever though with the IOW the choice this year is very good:

VFM @ The Ice Rink (scooter orientated)

Tribute bands + DJ's@ Ryde Theatre

Reggae/Ska @ The Town Club

RSG @ Yelfs (Sun)

The do mentioned by Mr Mischief

DJ's @ The Squadron (3 Button Heroes Sun)

and Hipshaker @ The Ryde Castle

Plenty of choice ... the ability to wander as some are free and most are £5 or £6.

In reply to the comment about "scooter boys" at Hipshaker. We operate without dress restrictions and as such we attract a wide variety of people in. We hope that the different people are tolerant of, and considerate to, each other and that no-one feels threatened. However, we will monitor the atmosphere and hopefully if anything like that mentoned occurs we can deal with it. e.g.remove the problem/ensure that those causing it don't attend again etc.

All in al though the atmosphere is usually excellent and feedback good ..... hopefully the same this year.

Overall though, as I said before ... plenty of choice.

There was an allnighter last year (and the year before I think) but Sean is not involved this year. I thought Rob Messer was going to run one this year but have seen nothing about it advertised anywhere.

Mischief, yep I'm here matey ;-). Sure will be good to catch up with you and Em. Best of luck with your Do's.

Will you be going to the Specials SC Family Day on the 22nd? I'll be dj'ing there as a warm up for the IOW.

At all the Hipshaker Do's I've been to both as a punter and to dj I've only ever experienced a great crowd that are really up for it. I've only ever seen one idiot and he was dealt with very rapidly.

cheers

Richard

If it was safe as milk, i wouldn't scream everytime I log onto the forum. It's too scary Johnny. Ever since the Sopranos clip with the talking fish i've been suspicious of these scaley things. And then ya go and fuse it with my top room 101 object. A CLOWN!

Back to scooters n' soul. >> WHo's taken over the Ryde Theatre since NuTs left town?
