It's a kinda central midlands meet.

I'd drop the 'East' from the title ... it's too confusing for us simple folk ... just call it the Midlands Monthly Meet. :lol:

Apologies for any confusion caused by mentioning a West Midlands meet. A bit of history to explain where the current meet originated from.
With no meets at all occurring in the Midlands, aka the M6 corridor effectively the idea of holding meets in the midlands effectively rotating around the area to for maximum coverage. Lauren organised a couple near Wolverhampton, Alex Simoes one near Warwick and attendance was not the best to say the least. Then Seejay started this one the Appleby Inn and the New Midlands monthly meet has just had its first birthday.

At 160 miles round trip I am not a regular attendee but am fortunate to have the Cotswold Allsorts monthly meet which is well attended and Sagarh travels down from Kidderminster to attend. A meeting to the West or south west of Birmingham would I thought appeal to a reasonable number of people but it appeared not. However times has passed and hence my suggestion that we should try again to get a meet set up in the West Midlands but it appears to have caused confusion.

Ideas for the way forward welcomed folks

I'm game for this by the way.

Got some lights for Huw, a nice tablet/satnav housing from WhelanUK that he's looking to shift, Mazdaedit, comp tester... you just have to put up with me :D

Shall we make a list/reservation?

Also I'm reliably informed that VelocityDan and Ben T won't be joining us for this one. I've tried to arrange picking the oil and bits up but it's naht going to happen.

Just thinking I can check my stock/who needs what to see if I can sort people out in the mean time, then take people's supplies from Dan at a later date. I don't think I've got much though.
