    Guys and Girls,

    Please discuss..

    we can all arrange for a meet to happen but who will actually come.. cos alot of peeps say they will come and end up bailing out at the last minute because alot of you guys are under the thumb..


    SHOW some RESPECT to your man hood and get out of the house!!! and have a pint!

    alot of us at vagowners.com will come and have a pint... so if we can agree on a date between us all.. we can get this thing on the road /ubbthreads/images/graemlins/smile.gif or in the pub.. lol

    Meets are always going to be tricky for me to get along to; but I'm always keen to attend...

    It'd be nice if across a few of the boards we can arrange a more regular date; I think it's probably the inconsistency in NW-meet timings that makes them so quiet...

    As has been said in the past; we've got quite a big group of VAG-forum junkies in the north-west; and it'd be good if we could all get together more often. Perhaps the best way is to just set a regular day for it to take place; and if people turn up, wonderful. ...Obviously this runs the risk of there being 0 or perhaps 1 attendee at a given meet, and I'm sure that might make the sole-attendee unhappy, but it's nothing they won't get over... But overall, I think if word got out that there's an Audi/VAG meet-up at <wherever> on the last sunday of every-month; or alternate months perhaps - the meets would only get progressively bigger.

    ...It's easier to say to people "meet at the <red lion> the last sunday of every month" than "we sometimes have north-west meets; you can normally find information on either audi-sport.net / vagowners.com etc. - or if there's not, perhaps suggest a date/location..."

    People, I would've thought, are more likely to attend if they just know the details - if they have to check almost-deserted meets sections hidden away in the basement of forums to find the details each time, it gets a little sketchy.

    Anyway, just my 2p's worth...

    Like I say, I'm always keen to go along; it's just tricky a lot of the time - but hopefully I'll be able to push more things aside to squeeze in some more meet-ups in future; it's always nice to have a drink and a chat with like-minded Audi-geeks...

    Regards,

    Rob.

    valid point...

    but as i think it was mentioned before as people have wifes and ball and chains and other commitments it tends to be te story that a regular meet would never get off the ground due to "other commitments"

    i understand you can make it a regualr thing and have the possibility of strangers coming...

    but i agree you have a valid point.

    Guys,

    There is an established Northwest meet running already.

    Please see Northern Meets

    It was setup originally by AL_B from this forum (3 years ago I guess) and is posted on tyresmoke and rs246.

    Anyone interested is very welcome to attend.

    as its in halifax/rochdale area.. its a big trip for most of the people in the area..

    although a few do come from manchester its better to meet towards the middle to help with traveling etc..

    the past few times have been in wilmslow.. although not in the middle its easy for everyone to get to.. its a nice area, easy to find etc..

    plus this up and coming one is on a monday...

    i don't leave work till 5.30 in liverpool for me to get home, get changed and travel to rochdale/haifax for 7pm is hard for me... and likely to be the same situation for alot of others..

    trying to please everyone will always be a hard thing but generally a weekend is better for everyone..

    Once you come off at the junction follow the signs for preston brook through the village 30mph Speed limit ( Camered) and we are there on the right hand side @ the Preston brook Pub.

    If I've got my car back by then I will come along /ubbthreads/images/graemlins/laugh.gif

    Only a 120 mile round trip. So not too bad compared to some of the meets I've been to.
