    Hi all, how about an adventure meet for the spring?
    Days Out at Go Ape | Outdoor Activities
    There are two sites in Scotland, one in Peebles and one in Aberfoyle. If we go for this we may be able to get a discount. I discussed this with Adam (admin) and he spoke to the marketing department and they would be more than happy for us to have a meet in there carpark as well. Thoughts???

    Sandra. :) x

    There's also one up here, just outside Aberdeen... Just in case. I think that it would be good fun though! :)

    How about something like karting - car people and all that?

    Sorry dont do those outdoor activity things - dangling from ropes at 40-50 foot up isn't my thing!

    I suppose that either would work for me! That said, the karting sounds more up our street being a car forum... ;)

    You sound excited about that Sandra! Haha. Yeah, why not? Would mean that we can have a few options, even if we don't end up going for it in the end. :) Where were you thinking?

    Xtreme in Edinburgh or Falkirk, Raceland in Edinburgh and Knockhill are the big, central karting places. I like the idea of Go Ape, but it'd be better left until some warmth comes back next year.

    Karting is ace especially when you've got so many competitive petrol-heads in the one place. Livingston have a good one but we will leave the location up to you Sandra. Crack On cuz........hehehehe!!

    Had a stag do at scotcart in Clydebank it was just under £50 for the grand prix and that got you a warm up lap and 3 to 4 races @ 6 laps I think. What I did find was the carts would shift ass if your skinny and struggle to shift if your not.

    Yup I went to one a month or so ago and have to agree exactly with what you are saying. I'd have to think long and hard about doing anything like that again soon!
