    So luckily you guys wont have to wait for me being late...lol :)

    Ash are you going on the Saturday or Sunday, the show is only on Sunday isnt it??

    Im sure all the Brum boys are talking about meeting on Sunday morning and driving to the show on Sunday morning.

    I was planning on meeting up with you on Sunday morning as well in Leicester??

    Hey Piers that was me that Henry met...lol...

    I think the Brum lads are meeting in the Notcutts/Tesco car park on Sunday at 7.30am, im sure someone will update the thread accordingly in due course if theres any changes, just PM me or ask A3Tom, and you can arrange to meet up with the boys there and convoy up with them if you guys want to.

    Right... not sure I can make 7:30 (I can, it's the missus that will take more convincing) but happy to try and meet at Corley services just after 8am.
    Might be attending Bristol Cider festival on Saturday, so if I don't show up I'll see you all at the show instead :)

    Cheers,
    Mark

    Sunday morning mate.

    I think so far its some meeting at Notcutts/Tesco in Shirley, then pop into Corley to pick others up and then over to Tescos near the show to collect a couple more.

    Yes, you go pass us, Jcn4(I think) off the M42(A3400) and turn left off the big island, straight for like 200yard and next island turn right and it will be Tescos/Nottcuts, if you miss that, then it going to be Corley Services on the M6, which is the last services before you hit M1/A14.

    Right...this is getting close.

    So, people meeting at Tesco's just off the Jct 4 M42 stick yourselves on this list (quote it and add your details).

    So far I'm aware of...

    Me
    Jojo

    Anyone else?, if so put yourselves on the list!.

    I'm planning a 8.00am meet as long as we know we can get into the park if we're early as it doesnt look like we have to stop at Corley now (unless I've missed something).

    Cheers

    Tufftybloke,

    Yep, thats the place, its just off the motorway. Its going to be a 7.30 meet. Where are you coming from? (there wont be ANY traffic on the M42 at that time).

    Sidibear - See you at 8.00am is at Corley then!. What car are we looking out for?.

    Coming from Stroud way so I will get onto the M5 at J13... roughly an hour to get to that point of the M42 but will aim to get there a tad earlier :)

    Worth doing a mobile no. exchange via PM?

    Roughly an hour?....pah....I used to do it the other way round in a Merc Sprinter in 45 minutes (that was at 5am though!). ;)

    Yep, I'll drop you a PM with my number on. I think the plan is me you and Joe meet up just off the M42 between 7.30 and 8.00am and then off up to Corley to pick up Sidibear. It'll only take about 15 minutes to get up to Corley so we'll be there for about 8ish for anyone meeting us there.

    I cant help but think we're going to get there pretty early....hope we can get in!!!.

    I have heard from Calvin and my impression is that the park opens at 8.30 for employeess to set up and then 10am for everyone that needs to get in and pay, like us. A few of us hope to already be in there due to camping so can't even use that to blag our way in to setup the stand or something. Don't rush guys:beerchug:
