    Hey guys. I'm definitely up for a meet.

    I'm also in Essex, so something in that area would be good. Someone mentioned a monthly one at Bluewater, that's not too far from me so would be interesting to check out. Anyone got details?

    Beanoir, I'm near Chelmsford and also MHill, I'm in Clacton at least once a month visiting family there. Would be good to arrange a meet some time.

    Well there seems a few responses from the Essex area, Staz, you're the other side of the M25, so how about a half way point somewhere on the M25, isn't there that cafe that is famous for its car meets, the name escapes me right now...

    What about something like the Thurrock Services off the M25? Should be easy to get to for most people and I think there's plenty of car park space around there.

    ACE cafe is great and they have a huge carpark but I guess it depends on when you go, weekends are rammed.

    Lakeside in Thurrock is always used for cruses every Thursday i think so its quite popular place for petrolheads to meet.

    this seems to be turning into an "Essex" meet, which I don't mind, but how many people would willing to travel to Essex? I was hoping to open it up to as many people as possible really.

    Lakeside can turn a bit chavy, was shopping last weekend and there where loads of modified cars buzzing around. Thought id have walk around whilst i was waiting for the other half but i only lasted 10 minutes as it was just fools driving like idiots! Which was a real shame as there was some very nice metal all be it mixed with some very **** fiberglass!

    If this is going to turn into an Essex 8P meet, why don't we meet in Chelmsford, as it's pretty central and easy to get to?

    Chelmsford sounds a good idea for a starter, if anyone's interested few of us from SeatCupra.net are meeting up on the 3rd at Ipswich for some abuse/banter followed up with some good food.

    If anyone is interested and does not want to register let me know and i can post on your behalf.

    Right guys, I think Lakeside was the best plan, it suited most people as it's on the M25. I haven't a clue which part of Lakeside yet, but we mentioned the last weekend in Jan, i'll confirm more exact details nearer the time, unless anybody knows the best spot to meet.

    So, who is coming along to the...

    8P meet at Lakeside on the 31st of January 2010


    I can extend the invite to other models of course and will post this in the "meets" section of the forum if we get a decent response from us lot first.

    I'll start the list;

    1. Nick

    Sounds like a plan to me, although I suspect the issue of where to eat is a whole new debate! hehe

    Thought i'd give this a bump,so far we have:

    1. Nick (beanoir)
    2. Jordan (smudge_don)
    3. mhill
    4. Scott134
    5. Anton

    a few from the 8L area have expressed an interest in coming along too.

    Possibly an 8P convoy from the North, for the brave ones up for a roadtrip!

    Mods - Is it possible to change the title of the thread to something like:

    A3 Meet - 31st January - Lakeside, Thurrock, Essex (M25 J30 /31)


    Thanks

    This seems like an excellent idea.

    I'm definitely up for this!

    Should be really good to see everyone's mods and get some ideas.
