Sunday seems a good day for these, so either one of the remaining sundays in oct or one in nov? comments and suggestions please! Josh

    Well if we can sort something out (New Forest works for me too) then all is good. I would suggest we work to the person with the least availability so QJ if you can let us know which weekend you have off we can see if we can all be available for the same date.

    Once the summer comes back around and we have some lighter evenings again then we could have some evening meets.

    Okay so realistically we have 1 shot at this this month, which would be the 6th... in 2 days..! as I'm working the 13th, sam is away the 19th. suppose we could do the 27th although that's the day after my birthday so I'll probably be recovering but would be up for something if people are free. so, is anyone up for the 6th? (just putting it out there short notice n all that) Josh

    Could possibly do the 6th if there is enough interest.

    if not lets work towards the 27th and see if we can get a few more cars along.

    Yup can most likely do both dates too so we could do a short notice meet and then plan maybe a more popular one for the 27th.

    So for the 6th late afternoon would work best for me but what would other be able to make it to?

    So are we going to work on the New forest for location to meet? if so any ideas as to where might be good?

    late afternoon ish sounds alright to me, where's close to both of us then... I'm not overly familiar with all of the new forest, the high corner inn is nice but really would need to be there over lunch and that really.

    I can't do the 6th, but don't let that put you off!

    Decide on a date and I'll book it off work if needs be (unless it's the middle of a set of night shifts like Sunday is)!

    I know bits of the new forest pretty well but none of the names lol.

    Guess the bits i know best are boldrewood and around there. But if we pick somewhere with an actual location eg Beaulieu National Motor Museum, House and Garden in the New Forest

    As at least they have a car park plus its got an address for sat navs etc.

    So can still do sunday for a mini meet even if QJ cant come :(

    So is the 27th the best date for everyone for a bigger meet? and would people prefer to just meet up for a chat and a drive or would anyone prefer to do something eg Go Karting?

    Well perhaps we should go for the 27th then and skip today if its just us.

    That way with a little more time we can maybe get a few more on board.

    perhaps we should start a list, names of who intends to come. and before that we should confirm that to meet at the beaulieu carpark as vrbob suggested?

    do you think it's worth starting threads on other forums - like edition 38 etc and snc to try generate more interest or would we just rather keep it audi-sport only? I'm easy either way but if we want more people along and don't mind different cars? Josh

    I'll have to see nearer the time about the 27th. But Beaulieu is just up the road from me so I would be able to pop over for an hour or so. I'll pm my number across
