Hipshaker @ Iow Scooter Rally 2007

Recommended Posts

we've been getting quite a few enquiries/requests for tickets already so i thought it best to post some info.

we're back at the ryde castle again this year for 3 nights ...... DJ line-up almost finalised.

we'll have about 17 DJ's spread over 2 rooms for the weekend, including the Guest Club Room as usual. the Guest Club Room will have a different theme/music policy each night to complement the main room.

we'll have a slightly increased capacity this year too, which should make the scramble for tickets a little less hectic ....... and the smokers will be pleased to hear that they can smoke in our beer garden, which is open the whole time we are.

tickets on sale from the wedgewood rooms soon:

final details and flyer to follow.

All them do's and still people can't get in to them, cause there full..

Excellant nothing like the IOW, I have soulie friends that now go, they have no intrest in the scooters but love the buzz every where.

Its only really the IOW thats like it, I always feel that other rallys are scooterists rallys but the IOW has some thing differnt something abit special...

There aint a weekend in the world that can give you the buzz of that the IOW gives you, so much to do and such little time to do it in,

im up for the Crown on Friday and Sunday and the awsome Hipshaker on the Saturday,

i am calling around everyone now and i should be wanting about 10 tickets for the Saturday so expect a call in the next couple of days.

happy days :ohmy:

glad you got sorted soulsauce!

bearsy ...... you will find it cheaper if you pay as a group of people as the box office we use add a 50p fee per ticket (cheap as far as fees go) but also a £1.50 credit card transaction fee per transaction. so, for 10 tickets just the one transaction fee. i don't think there is a transaction fee if they send a cheque though .... and there is no extra to pay for postage.

and as everyone is saying ... the buzz is good. venues always busy, plenty of choice. probably more than even we know going on.

Guest dkd

got to agree with the comments above, the IOW weekender does have its own special atmosphere.

I'm not particularly into scooters - but its still a cracking trip and top music all over the place - lead by the Hipshaker nights!

Good choice of Richard Brown chaps,

Have a good one

Dave

i'm surprised they didn't take payment. i ok'd the ticket proofs the other day so shouldn't be long.

no immediate hurry i would say .... at least not until scootering is out on about july 25th. we have an ad in it.

Hi Hipshaker, always had a really good time at Ryde Castle during the Bank Holiday Weekend. Usually go to Soles Shoes, Brilliant. I am sure this August will be no exception. The Isle of Wight Scooter Rally has such a great atmosphere. Good luck Sue and Col Isle of Wight Soul Club.

just a quick update about tickets.

we have an outlet on the IOW selling tickets for personal callers. Liberty's Cafe Bar, 12 Union St, Ryde.

also, i would suggest that anyone still needing saturday tickets get them sooner rather than later as they are selling very well.
