    Well chaps you all no I would love to make it but as its a busy time of the year in my trade I'm unfortunately working Monday to Saturday every day till Christmas and maybe an odd Sunday. :( if anything gets moved around job wise I will do my upmost to make it to the meet but unless its late on or on a Sunday the chances will be very slim.

    Put me down as a maybe on this - depends on work!

    And in terms of putting a calendar together, can this include shows and events?

    Please bear with me on this one.

    Calendar will be put together once we have confirmed our new monthly meet program and full details have been arranged.

    Additional meets will/can be added along with major meets.

    Full details will be confirmed tomorrow afternoon.

    Good Evening People.....

    Due to the success of previous meets recently I'm in the mood to get some good ones planned for next year.

    This one I'm thinking of maybe new to you, but Im sure the majority will the interested.

    I'm planning to hold talks with some detailing/valeting companies to see whether they will hold a detailing event day for us lot.
    I've seen and heard various meets at these places where they will give short tutorials on car care using various products.
    They generally let people try products out and give out advice on what's the best products etc.....
    Then I'm hoping to arrange with the company some group discount should you wish to purchase there products.
    Seem as these companies open throughout the week and Saturday's, I will arrange this to happen on a Saturday morning.
    Regarding when, well seems as March is a good time to give something a spring clean and wash away the winter dirt, I'm planning March 2014. Good time to get the motor into action for the events and show season.

    What I need to know from you lot, is whether you will the interested in this to happen.

    Any suggestions feel free to post.

    Yes it does sound like a good idea. Something different that I'm sure most people will appreciate the advice and tutorials.
    I'll have a chat with Sandra, regarding opening upto other regionals.
    Regarding a day. Saturday does sound good. We could possibly meet up first and have some breakfast. Go to the event the go for a good drive and a photo session to show off our shine.
    I'll keep everyone posted but for the time being. Sit back and hold in there.

    Right people....

    Needing some interest on this meet. Ideally need a list of possible attendees before end of year to pass onto the companies that i'm planning on speaking to.

    At the moment I have briefly spoken to a company, who has agreed to hold an event for us, although would be better to give him more of a idea on numbers.

    I'm planning to arrange this for March/April time next year. At the moment it will be on a Saturday, however it could also be a Sunday.

    The event will more than likely be as follows:

    - Meet up at a location, breakfast?, coffee, etc
    - Drive to the company
    - Short tutorials, demo, hints and tips on car care
    - Discussions, etc
    - Then some product shopping (Hoping to negotiate some good discount)
    - Photo's
    - Then after the event, a good drive somewhere.

    Feel free mate.
    no point me working for nestle and not letting everyone enjoy the fruits of my labour lol. Get good discount on dolce gusto coffee pods too if you drink them, I personally don't but a box is about £2 I think or maybe cheaper.

    Well when you want to move machines lol we get them for about £30 or £40.
    Like I said. I don't like the stuff, don't even like the smell. Glad we don't make it at York.

    Not yet Phil....

    I've briefly spoken to a company who is willing to hold the event, but needing some more interest off here, so it's worth his while to open up for us.

    I'll be in touch shortly....
