Travelzoo Top 20* – Upswinger Special

Devon Tour 2011

We have found this package from Upswinger Travel: Only £30 per person per night for a 1, 2, 3 or 4 night Devon break at the Radisson Higher Bidacott Garden Edwardian Farm Hilton – that’s a saving of nearly a whole week off work.

This package includes all Cricket and Golf activities, free nightly entertainment and dinner for one (on one night only) at Chulmleigh’s Premier Tandoori – reportedly the best for miles around.  (Local charges for some or all of these activities may apply)

To book this fantastic deal, all you need to do is contact the Upswinger Tour Daddy.

      Dear A Tourer,

      I have done some extensive research into weather patterns over the North Devon area, and the most conclusive evidence sadly points to the fact that rather than a week’s supply of Sunscreen, you and your fellow tourists should be advised to bring Sowesters and Cagoules.

      And Wednesday’s Roast is Sonia.

    Thanks Tour Daddy

    Just a few more questions ….

    – Will H-Bomb be fondling his girlfriend’s friend’s butt in The Bell again?
    – Will there be any toilet paper left in The Bell’s one and only male crapper come 1350 on Sunday?
    – Does St Giles have Wood all the time?
    – Are there any changing facilities at the T20 fixture or will we be dropping our pants and talcing-up in the car park of the local primary school again?

    Thanks again

    A Tourer

      Dear A Tourer

      Thanks you for your message. In answer to your questions:

      – I hope so
      – probably not
      – only in summer
      – I haven’t even found the ground yet, let alone any changing facilities!

      I hope this satisfies you, and look forward to seeing you on Tour

      Regards,

      Tour Daddy

    Dear A Tourer,

    Thanks again for your message.

    I am sorry to hear that you currently suffering the discomfort of a cough. Research has shown that the main causes of symptoms as you describe arise from drinking out of damp glasses. Have you recently been involved in this activity?

    There are many myths about how to cure a common cough, one of which involves sleeping with some cow dung secreted under the sufferers bed linen: however, this has proven to be ineffective as the underlying bacteria and impurities in the dung can, and will, lead to further health complications. In addition, the proximity of the dung to the nasal cavity often inhibits the sleeping pattern of the sufferer which leads to a disturbed nights recuperation, again something which can have an adverse effect on the general well-being of the sufferer.

    Remember, coughs and sneezes spread diseases – I would suggest a short course of Calpol to see if the irritant can be suppressed, and hopefully you will be cough-free before Tour.

    Regards,

    Tour Daddy

    That’s great advice Tour daddy – thanks a lot. But it throws up so many additional questions!

    Where can I buy some of this Calpol stuff? Is it like Nurofen for Children (the market leader) only much less effective?

    Also, will there be running water in the Chittlehampton pavillion this year?

      Dear A Tourer,

      Thanks once again for your message.

      I once was given a tip for a Horse by a former good friend of mine. In it’s first ever race “It’s a dead cert” he crowed, so naturally, I wagered a small amount on said horse. In this first outing the horse came 6th in a field of 7. Needless to say, I was not too happy with my former acquaintances advice. Nevertheless, he persisted with the story that this horse was destined for greater things, and I should continue to watch him, and back him at any opportunity. This, I did, and in it’s next outing finished 11th in a field of 22 – “a statistical improvement” my former pal would preach to me.

      Not to be disheartened, again, I was persuaded to stick with this horse and wait for it to prove itself. Improve it did, and in it’s next race finished 2nd in a field of 24. An improvement I was impressed with, but still not providing any returns on my outlays – “he’s due a win, a big payday soon” my increasingly distant friend would continue. Sadly, in it’s next four races, it never finished higher than third, and after only one season and 7 races was retired from the racing fraternity. As far as I am aware, it could now even be the magic substance that is keeping my wallpaper attached to the wall!

      By now, you may be wondering where my ramblings are heading. Well, that would bring me on to the name of the Horse, Market Leader. There may be a vast number of people who are led to part with their hard earned for tales of prosperity and wealth, but sadly they will no doubt end up demoralised, disenchanted and ultimately with far fewer friends from whence they started upon. My point – stick with Calpol!

      Regarding the running water at the Chittlehampton Pavilion, my sources do tell me that the guttering has still not been fixed, and running water is available. On the front veranda. Provided it is raining.

      Regards,

      Tour Daddy

    You now say “Stick with Calpol” but earlier your indicated it was an irritant suppressant. Giving that the irrtation continues, are you now saying Calpol is actually an adhesive? I’m confused. Please could you clarify?
    Thanks

    Tour Daddy
    Have you heard the amazing news?
    The Scandinavian Netball Associations Tournament of Champions is scheduled to take place in Chittlehampton during mid-July. Isn’t this amazing good fortune for all tourers! I believe it will be the first time SNATCH of any sort has been seen in North Devon since the South Molton Blockbuster store closed in 2003.
