    First of all, thanks for bringing this to our attention, JMerrie.

    I won't even try to offer suitable words to describe the situation, because I'm fairly sure there aren't any; I'll simply say that I for one (and I dare say more of you reading about this) am compelled to attend, and show support in any way I (/we) can.

    IMPORTANT:

    It's clear that news of this gathering is spreading far and wide, and it's looking likely that there'll be a significant number of vehicles in attendance - reading the latest (at time of writing) on the thread at SoobyNet, it appears they're in the process of ensuring capacity, permission and management of such a potentially large meeting.

    IN AN EFFORT TO MAKE ORGANISATION FOR THE GUYS AT SCOOBYNET EASIER, I KINDLY REQUEST THAT YOU FOLLOW SOME GUIDELINES FOR THIS THREAD:

    1) If you *seriously* intend to attend the meeting, please join the list I'll start below. For example, if you're second on the list, copy and paste my entry into your post, and add your details at a new entry (No 2). The third person on the list copies the list to that point, and adds their details at position number three.

    2) IF YOU WISH TO TAKE PART IN DISCUSSION PLEASE USE >>THIS THREAD<< - Discussion will quickly confuse the list, and again, I'm sure you'll agree that it's important we help the guys at ScoobyNet by being as clearly organised as we can - the idea is that we can supply as accurate a number as possible, and ensure that if they want to keep an eye on how things are moving here, it can be done at a glance.

    3) IF YOU NOTICE ANY MISTAKES IN THE LIST - SOMEONE MAKING A HASH OF COPY & PASTE (ACCIDENTS HAPPEN) - PLEASE USE THE REPORT POST BUTTON SO THAT A MODERATOR CAN COME AND UNTANGLE IT ASAP.

    4) IF YOU ARE WAFFLING ON THIS THREAD - DON'T BE SURPRISED IF YOUR POST(S) VANISH WITHOUT WARNING. IF YOU PERSIST, YOU MIGHT EVEN EARN AN ASS KICKING. THIS ONE *REALLY* MATTERS, FOLKS.

    5) If you receive any revised information about the meeting (venue etc.) and it hasn't been updated in the first post on this thread, again, please use the report post button and advise us so that we may keep the details accurate.

    Now, all that said - I'd be really pleased if ASN could come together and present a good selection of eurobox rep-buses in support of our rice-burning comrades, and help give this lad a grand day out.

    Thanks & regards,

    Rob.

    The truth they're trying to keep from you is that IPv6 has nothing to do with address space; we're actually running out of full stops.

    Hmm, looks like they arent aware of us lot going.
    Bit of a shame as I thought someone would have posted our names - but like I said earlier, ill be going - even if it means parking a mile down the road.

    Same here really, ah well, I did try and get our names on the list last minute, but looks like there is no chance.
    Would you guys consider meeting up close by and walking to the event?
    I have had a quick look on google maps - there is a Morrisons to the west of the event which looks like a 10min walk away.
    Failing that, im sure we could find somewhere else to park a few cars?

    Hi Alexgsi200 its looking like a no go for me in car at least ,altho id love to be there im not going to risk just been sat in a 10 mile tailback cos the roads are gridlocked,there are people coming from all over the uk and it would appear there going up invite or not,im seriosly considering going thru on motorbike Honda vfr750 as its a lot easier to park than my b5 avant and walk to the event just to show my face and say i was there, still more than happy to meet up,if so give me your details

    Guys just a quick one...

    I'm really sorry - had a hellish busy few days at the beginning of the week and am now marshalling a family situation (don't like using terminology like that on this of all threads, but...) which means I've not been here/able to chase-up after ASN's registering.

    Sincerely hope it goes as well as can be expected, and most sincere apologies again.
    The truth they're trying to keep from you is that IPv6 has nothing to do with address space; we're actually running out of full stops.

    How many of you actually went to this? I attended this meet but not through ASN as i was already meeting a few local friends and some old faces that are now on scoobynet.

    I must say, the day was very very well organised and marshalled imo so well done to the guys on scoobynet. I was talking to the bloke that owned the R8 above, whom was just about to set off home before Connor's dad told him that his car had been chosen by Connor himself as 1st place 'best car' at the meet.

    All in all, great day and was nice to be a part of 'last wishes' for Connor!

    Off the top of my head - I think 4 or 5 of us - although I didn't actually meet with the other members.
    My car is the silver avant in the last picture;
