    I'd be up for a regular meet, maybe bi-weekly or monthly?

    That's cool jase, was thinking of a post AITP pre ADI meet, open to suggestions on location, somewhere central ideally.... Perhaps a pub? (ie somewhere a little more civilized than a supermarket car park) :lmfao:

    Im thinking somewhere similar to Bassets Pole (for those of you who know it).

    Grub, Beer, cars and a good atmosphere. How can you lose? :thumbsup: Just dont have too many of the second item :angrymod:

    Speedy did suggest somewhere a while back, I'm hoping this will become a monthly thing....

    If I take a Friday or Saturday evening off, it's the equivalent of 'taking the p!ss' in my line of work! I doubt my staff would turn up to work on Sunday! lol

    Just seen this. I'd be up for a monthly meet. Maybe Thurs eve is a good compromise. It's Friday eve after all. Maybe get it going and then vary location so it's not always the same people travelling to get there?

    I could do Thursday evening depending on location and times. The problems is, with the nights coming in so early and the cold, not that many people go to meets at this time of year, so I guess we are planning for next spring?

    Yeah varying by county could work. Maybe get some dates & venues lined up and kick it off in the spring?

    That's on the dual carriageway that goes past Costco. They are all the late teen - young 20 year old "Innit Bruv" crowd and have f**ked up at least four car meets in this area due to there actions.

    Being from the area, I know all of these places, but they have become so dangerous, I wouldn't want to go anywhere near!

    Maybe we look for a decent location that people don't know about widely, as the last thing we want is bad press for what we want to do, which is just chill out and get together.

    Thanks for pointing that out nils, I have a location for the brum/Warwickshire area, near Coventry airport, so easy access from M1/M40/M6... :) jut need people from other areas (derby/notts/Worcester etc...) to give ideas for their own areas ;)
