TIMELINE: ( will update soon)

February 21st 2014: Cloverleaf159 (Azam) asks about meets in the area?
February 24th 2014: Dan in Poole suggests we get a date for a meet sorted after a few people express an interest.
February 26th 2014: Cloverleaf159 realises that robwrx lives in the same town in Dorset.. (small world), people suggesting we do a run late March
February 26th 2014: Dan in Poole posts " Clover... set a date for a run to WestBay "
February 26th 2014: The Dorset/Somerset/Wiltshire group is born. Cloverleaf159 (Azam) starts to plan our first meet
February 27th 2014: The first lists of peoples locations are being posted. A lot of people showing interest and Salisbury suggested by Strummer as a start point.

March 1st 2014: A date is set... We go for Sunday the 6th April....
March 3rd 2014: We have lift off. Details of the first meet are posted . The run is going to be from Salisbury to Compton Abbas airfield in Shaftesbury.
March 24th 2014: First maps of driving route are posted. These maps are then produced for every meet after.
April 3rd 2014: Visit Compton Abbas airfield to sort out tables etc. We now have 24 people on the list. Have to ask the restaurant for more tables

April 6th 2014: Our first meet, the big day. Plenty of people turn up as some of us especially me meet many new faces. Nigel is there to keep an eye on things and help out if needed... It was a great run even if the drive was a bit short but it gave us more ambitious plans for next time.

June 8th:Our second meet Salisbury to West bay via Yeovil. West bay was suggested by a few members and so I worked with that and was made aware of this great scenic coastal route.... And of course that's where the tv series " Broadchurch" was based "

August 3rd 2014:. Our third meet is to Chippenham and includes a tribute lap to late Dean Cargill. Not many this time as people were busy and it clashed with Beaulieu but a great day anyway

September 28th 2014: Our 4th meet is to Swanage.... yes the one where the ice cream man asked whether I was part of the group of loud cars that went through town earlier.... Little did they know, this just made us even nosier leaving....

November 23rd 2014 . Our 5th meet and this time we go across to Weston Super Mare . This was a tricky route to plan as it involved Going through Cheddar Gorge and various junctions afterwards to go through turning onto main roads. Jazz was brilliant in keeping a tag of things as was everyone being great at keeping the group together.

February 8th 2015 . Our 6th meet sees us head towards Lyme Regis.... Bit of a hard one this as we had to park at the top of the Hill and walk down to the restaurant.... Sorry Nigel :-) Then the restaurant clammed us into a small space and Matt knocked Adams (Nigels friend) drink flying .. oops

Due to illness we were not able to organise another meet for a while but when we did it was epic

May 30th 2015 Our 7th meet and this was known as the "Big One" Me and Nigel combined the Dorset and Somerset group run with the Devon area Group.... with who we had previously arranged a run out for them late 2014 This run was from Shaftesbury to Bude in Devon and also marked the change of starting point of these meets from Salisbury to Shaftesbury from now on. Thus the meets became known as the Dorset and Somerset group meets and the Wiltshire tag was removed. Sadly this was also the end of the Devon group adventure... There was just not enough interest in that area making it viable and we decided to concentrate totally on the Dorset and Somerset area .

September 6th . Meet number Eight sees us go to Lulworth Cove..... For this meet we were joined by Malcolm and Gynn who were down visiting Malcolms mother I believe and the date just worked for them. It was a glorious sunny day and we actually had our meal stopping off inbetween at the Worlds end Inn in Almer before continuing to Lulworth Cove... And yes we all had an ice cream again at Lulworth.

November 22nd . Meet number Nine was rather special. Nigel came up with the brilliant idea of having a Baby Shower meet as Adam and Donna had a new baby girl called Ruby. So yeah I ran with the idea and took the group off for a short drive whilst Claire and Caren made up the seating area with ballonns, banners ribbons etc that I had personally bought . This was at the Half Moon in Shaftesbury. We all clubbed together too and presented Adam and Donna with some mothercare vouchers and a card. A good day was had by all and Adam and Donna were thrilled with everyone's kindness

Hi Everyone. I'm really really Sorry but I have to postpone this meet until a later date

My mum is very very ill and needs a lot of care and attention. It may even be a case of finding her a care home.

So please bare with me as you can guess a lot of my time is currently taken up at the moment.

I do hope to announce a date in April for our next meet once I know more and can commit to it.

Thank you for your understanding

As this isn't happening, if you want to meet up with a few more of us, how about coming up for the AGM weekend instead :thumright: http://www.rx8ownersclub.co.uk/forum/vi ... 38&t=72365

Hello everyone, I'm new here (first post, first time RX-8 owner (3 months)) and I would really enjoy a meeting with people alike. I'm sorry to hear about the issues above, and since this is what i do for a living (I'm a nurse in a nursing home) maybe I can lay a hand. If there is anything I can do to be helpful in regard with your mother (advice etc.) please don't hesitate to ask. Again, I would love to be part of the next meeting. I wish you all a good day.

The AGM does sound appealing (Racetrack!) but that's a fair ol' distance from Poole I'm afraid!
