    Default 2014 THE CRANKCASE, 'tea party' and Schottenring Classic races

    time to get some invitations out because some people have already booked hotels : )

    dear all,
    after the success of the last few years we will again be throwing our annual 'bikers tea party'. 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%2...3%20p1&lang=en
    and a great review by Yannick from Moto Minute, in French: http://motominute.fr/galerie-photo/t...e-aout-2013-2/

    And the 2014 Schottenring Grand Prix races website, unfortunately only in German: http://www.schottenring.de/msc/index...chottenring-gp

    If you are interested to join us and need accommodation, here you can see what's available around Neu-Anspach: http://www.neu-anspach.de/sv_neu_ans...erk%C3%BCnfte/
    and the town of Usingen just 3 km to the north,
    hotels: http://www.usingen.de/freizeit.php?a...kid=5&linkid=5
    holiday homes: http://www.usingen.de/freizeit.php?a...kid=5&linkid=5

    Most convenient are the Hotel Zur Eiche (single room about 48 euros, double 80 euros, approximate) which is directly opposite: http://www.zur-eiche-westerfeld.de/
    and the Hotel Veltes (single 55 euros, double 88 euros, approximate) which is just 200m away.: http://www.landhotel-velte.de/

    or camping in Usingen (3km) for 3 euros a night (motorcycles no charge): http://www.camping-usingen.de/
    We will be happy to help as much as possible with bookings, so if you see something you like, give us a call/send an email and let us know if we may help you.

    For food and drink in our yard on Saturday, we ask only for donations to help us support the costs.
    Otherwise: please understand all risks and costs will be your responsibility.

    So, if you plan to be anywhere in the area (near Frankfurt, Germany) in the middle of August this year we would be glad to see you.

    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.

    Thanks for posting that up Ian I really enjoyed looking at the links.
    Wish I could join you but it's too close to the MGP/Classic TT for me.

    plenty of good stuff going on Steve, but dates are always difficult.
    I just stick to the same weekend as the Schottenring and leave it at that. For the tea party at least.
    Otherwise, we are always happy if somebody stops by anytime to say hello.
    There's a few people planning to come by from as far as Australia this year just because they've seen the website and reckon we deserve a visit !
    Besides the occassional paying guest : )
    all the best

    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, feel free but please let us know so that we have enough cups : )
    best wishes

    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.


    The tricolore waiting for then off




    Nice arty pic thanks to Christian


    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.


    The aftermath . . .
