    Question Meet anyone?.

    Hi guys..

    Right I'm fairly new to ASN and I thought I'd test the water to see if any other north east members would be interested in a meet?.
    Ive got a few ideas where/what we can do. Could just have a local meet and have abit of scran and get to no eachother.
    Or we could do all of the above and make a day of it I.e go over to the lakes or a ride down to Whitby.?
    i know it's not my place to organise meets, days out, etc.. But it would be nice to meet other north east members What's your thoughts?

    Thanks Paul

    Haha the golden rule is that it has to include food ha! Ermm right.. Well here's two ideas I've got.. We can meet up at various service stations depending on where people are from.. Then go to either Tan hill inn (highest pub in England and is approximately just short of an hour from scotch corner) or go to Whitby magpie cafe which is approximately an hour and a half from teeside park

    You've never been to Whitby?. I must of been 1,000,000 times haha. Tan hill is a great drive like its a single track road right up to the inn. You can open up the taps ocasionally but thats up to you as theres sheep hovering about and the occasional biker. I did the same drive with a friend in the summer but we went over heart side pass on the way then headed east at Penrith and up to tan hill.

    haha yeah I see your point. I'm 22 like this is my second A3. I had a silver 54 reg 2.0 tdi before.


    Yeah heart side is a fantastic route theres heart side cafe at the top of the pass which is canny, just have to watch the other side of Alston as mr plod likes to sit around there in a blind summit with his speed gun! We need to sort out a date and get as many people going

    It was meant to snow last night but it didnt, i dont believe the weather reports.

    It's meant to be the place but it seems a bit dead for our section or im just really sad and keep checking it all the time and other people have a life :P

    How long would the drive take? best time to meet and where?

    Sandra you spoil-sport, get yourself along!

    Meet definitely sounds like a good idea. I like the idea of Tan Hill too. What date would be best for everyone? Once we've got a date in mind I'll create a new thread with the details and we can go from there.

    I'm thinking a Sunday?

    Haha predictive text is a killer! If Saturday is no good is there a specific day/date which suits you as we want to include as many people as possible

    here's a random question but.. How does everyone like to drive when they are in a "convoy" to a specific meet? Just the last meet I went to was with north east modified and there was 10 of us traveling to hull and the lead car sat at 55mph all the way!! I nearly fell asleep a few times haha
