    Cant really not go, poor kid, lets give him what he wants :)

    This is also on a skyline forum and as of later today an ST owners forum will be made aware by my friend.

    Hopefully should put a smile on the lad's face :)

    Gutted I can't take part, I'll be working during the time of this meet!

    One of my customers is the organiser of West Mids Impreza's, I'm sure he will be there with his mates!

    Latest information is that they're looking at a venue with capacity for 1000-1500 cars. More details due soon, I'd expect with a narrower estimate on capacity and any relevant information to ensure things run as smoothly as possible.

    I've a funny feeling that regardless of whether capacity is 50 or 5000, it's going to be a hectic day. The thread is a little over a day old, the spread of news is still gaining pace, and it hasn't really hit the largest media (and social media) outlets yet. If it looks like they're going to blow whatever capacity limit is set, the problem is simply that it'll be difficult to track places and people confirmed as definitely going - and the masses are going to feel 1) no less compelled to go, 2) like they must anyway, to ensure every possible space is filled (no-shows at something like this when people have been turned away would be a real shame). It's probably wisest to plan not only for those who'll attend, but as much for those who you may need to turn away - if everyone understands there's a chance of it, and provision is made for easy turnaround of traffic, it running away quite like it seems to be still needn't be a problem.

    I'll keep in touch with what's going on at ScoobyNet and update the relevant points ASAP (again though, heads-up of anything significant changing is always gratefully received :beerchug:)

    I guess if that one's still there today, that's the one confirmed (and hopefully large enough).

    First post in list thread updated.

    Cheers Dave.

    What time does it go on till? I dont finish till 4 but want to come n show my support for the lad, I thought in the original post it said 6pm start, obviousley this has changed due to the sheer volume of cars and organising that will be needed.
