    Hampshire South Central Meet 20th Feb 2011

    Hampshire South Central Meet

    *** SUNDAY 20th FEBUARY 2011 ***

    Time – TBA (I will confirm later)

    This is the follow on from THIS THREAD

    Since there’s a lot of interest for a meet in the South central region, me and future will get the first one organised for next month.

    Southampton is chosen for the location since its pretty much central for everyone to get to! So no excuses for being too far, and certainly no excuse for all the peeps who lives in Soton

    Its gonna be on a Grosvenor Square multistory carpark top floor if the weather is good, if not we’ll have a cover under our heads and lights.

    Location Address:

    Grosvenor Square (MSCP)
    Southampton
    SO15 1BE

    Theres a little speed bump on the way out for us lowered peeps, but I’ve been advise by future its not a problem unless your just ridiculously low lol

    It’s gonna be a chilled out meet, where you can put some faces to names on here, have a chat and get to see some nice cars so please respect that! No drifting around and loud music.

    Also for now its going to be an Audi ONLY event! Theres plenty of VAG meets around, but very few audis gets represented, so purpose of this is to bring all the Audi owners together in this region, and feel free to bring friends along if they own one too and not a member on here!

    Finally add your forum name/car on the list even if you not 100% sure, just an idea on what turnout we might get!

    I've been looking for an Audi meet local to me, but timing will be tight if it's around 1-3pm. I'm already booked at another car meet at the Empress of Blandings west of Soton (for RX8 owners past and present).

    I'd suggest getting some idea of the time up there may help people commit. I'll be at another car meet at a pub from 12.30 to 3ish.

    I've found that meets around 9.30 - 10.30 start are great if there's a bacon/burger van nearby. It also means you can be back for the partner activities by Noon, go for a pub lunch or watch sport.

    Also, some may be delaying as the thought of driving into Southampton city centre on a prime shopping day means their partner may say yes, to go to the shops. I know mine is thinking IKEA!

    fair point completely forgot about the shops however to relax people you can get to grosvenor square car park without hitting any of 'central' southampton = no shopping personnaly i was thinking around 11 o clock tim, or if not maybe 2ish and we can enjoy a pub lunch after? The great thing about the car park is we can do an evening one if that makes it easier for people to attend?

    Don't know if many of you know the car park that is being used for the meet but it's top of the High Street, all shops/malls/Ikea are walking distance,, no burger van near by, it also gets very busy a round the West Quay/Ikea area,there are major road works outside Ikea at the moment as well,just to let you know if your not local there is newish multi story car park in Ocean village (water front/docks ) always looks very quite,this is located at the bottom end of town not top end like multi story thats being used for meet,just a few thoughts if you didn't know Southampton.

    Ah the much needed "what time?" discussion!

    Im with what Allroader said, the key is what time gets the most people there! Im free all day.

    Thanks for the info Tuggy, I think we'll leave this first meet location as it is. Next one we'll try a new place!

    I see the car park has a barrier in/out so tried to find the charges, it gave me a headache. There's a pic below, is this the car park that is meant to be free on Sundays? The sign doesn't say that and it's the multi story?

    Here's a pic of the 'ramp'. Car must be seriously decked to get caught buy that.

    If Brooksy or anyone else is VAGCOM equipped I'm looking into the 402 Mod for lowering the allroad.

    sounds like a plan gavin and thats the car park allroader, my polo used to be 120mm down front and rear and still didnt catch lol
    as to parking charges, there arent any 'free' ones as tuggy said, this is a pound for 2 hours if memory serves. If people dont want to pay that and the weather is nice we can always go to mfi car park opposite the statoion? but i would think that will be packed.

    Ł1 for a meet where there isn't a muddy, wet gravel car park is a bargain. I might even clay the allroad if the forecast is good.

    gavin89, thanks for the vagcom offer, I'm not reading any positive stories of handling improvement using the 402 mod so will pass this time. I have an OBDII bluetooth and android app that I can bring along, together with another OBDII device that lets you immobilise the car, read fault codes and other things that make a difference.

    I think it's a valid point to raise any concerns about venues for meets as these can have an impact on attracting greater numbers.

    A venue needs to have something to offer beyond a car park. The car park on this meet is close enough to the shops to drop off partners while those interested in the cars meet up.

    Now the subject of (future) venues has been raised though, has anyone been to The Rosebowl on the outskirts of Southampton? I believe parking is readily available and I think they have catering that is open at the weekends.

    I think that if we called them about meeting in their carpark, if only out of courtesy, they would see this as an opportunity for perhaps regular meetings and custom for their franchises on site. They do have other events like weddings so I don't propose we just turn up and 'hog' the car park, even those from Hampshire.

    Perhaps meets could be linked with matches or other exhibitions at the site?

    I also think we'd need to have a strict local speed limit adherence to retain goodwill.

    Another thought. Is there a local Audi dealer that would like to participate in the Southern local meets, with demonstrators or an R8 or two?

    You may notice I like to see the 'big' picture and Audi has the right image for this.

    I will now do what I could have done at the start and search for any existing car club meets at the Rosebowl. I very much doubt my idea is original.

    Hi Allroader, all good points too.

    Heres a copy and paste if info posted up on this thread.... Hampshire - South Central Peeps?

    ========

    There are several good meet places have used with other clubs forums - Scoobynet/MLR/Hampshire Jap Cars etc.

    Some good places that are regularly used are....

    White Swan - Swaythling/Westend Soton - Bing Maps Hosts the MLR/ Hampshire Subaru meets meets

    Seven Stars - A272 Petersfield (best driving road in the area) Bing Maps Hosts the MLR/ Hampshire Subaru meets. Great family restaurant/ pub and great food.

    West Meon A272 - just down the road from above. big biker meet place and hosts the Hampshire Jap Cars meets. Great family restaurant/ pub and great food.

    Longbridge Mill - Hook/ Sherfield-on-loddon hook pub - Google Maps hosts the Hampshire Jap Cars meets. Great family restaurant/ pub and great food.

    probably plenty more

    ====

    Whilst we are on the topic of location, i would say Southampton is not exactly central for the south, its more like south south than south central, but then I am pedantic twat ... agreed its central east to west, but not north to south

    Just my 2 brake horse power's worth

    I've come over from the RX8 so I'm familiar with the HJCC and Dorset JCC and the West Meon venue. It's location can encourage driving that attracts attention, but is a good place to drive to.

    I'm also a regular at the Goodwood breakfast clubs, another great place to convoy to.

    On the 20/2 I'm also going to meet up with my Wessex Group friends from the RX8 meets as although we don't all have 8s anymore, we get on well. That meet's at the Empress of Blandings pub near Ower and they have several car clubs that meet there.

    My mate Jim.E is getting a Q5 and may come along to this meet. He's from the Andover area and within Thruxton's boundary for special treatment. Now there's a venue worth a look? He's also like me when it comes to getting meetings set up, thinking of how to raise the profile. We went to the Haynes Motor Museum last year and there's a Pro-Drive Tour coming up.

    Although I've gone slightly off topic for this meet, I hope others see the relevance for the future.

    Well, The Rose Bowl is available for booking, catering and tours of the ground at weekends. They hold other functions like weddings so it's not appropriate to turn up without a booking. Maybe one to think about if this meet really takes off and becomes regular.

    The only pub I know that definitely welcomes car clubs, by prior appointment for catering numbers, is

    Empress of Blandings
    Romsey Road, Copythorne, Southampton, Hampshire, SO40 2PE

    It also gets very busy a round the Rose Bowl due to the shopping retail parks around it , just incase nobody knows ,forget it if theres a match on !!

    The Rose Bowl is a great venue but only available if you book it and that's in the Ł100s. I phoned the Audi dealer in Chandlers Ford and it seems the world of car sales there has become very introverted due to limited budgets. He couldn't grasp the benefit of bringing new or 2nd hand demonstrators to a car meet of Audi owners, a captive ready assembled converted to the brand bunch in my eyes.

    I'll have a word with my contact at Poole Audi. Does anyone else have any Audi contacts, say around Andover or Fareham/Portsmouth?

    Another type of place to meet up are country golf clubs which can be booked to be ready to offer for the numbers involved, e.g. Botley Grange golf club or the Meon Valley. Also National Trust properties like Kingston Lacy House and Gardens between Wimbourne and Blandford, plenty of parking, a cafe and culture for after the car discussions.

    All ideas for venues with full details could be posted up on a venues thread?

    the guys at poole audi have always been really helpful, especially the parts guys. The only problem with a meet there or near would parking issues. Would be good to see you all there this time and we can have a chat with regards to the next one?

    Agreed, parking at any Audi dealer is going to be tight. However for (the) future I think that if the venue is appropriate, the local Audi dealer may be persuaded to attend with one or two demonstrators and literature if we were to let them know what sort of Audi we were really looking to get next time.
