Very enjoyable evening, I thought Sean’s 8 looked a great contrast against my Crystal white 40th!! Thanks to Christine and bubba for bringing my raffle won black hoodie, looks and feels great! I think Ann got a pic of us all?

See you all soon 😁 :thumright:

What tyres do you have on? It makes a huge difference between a premium tyre and a budget special.

Ps - I won't be making it. I need a rest Image
How did the big day go?!

Hopefully catch up next time
All good, cheers! Still recovering now 😂

Hopefully see you at the next one (in the new daily 😮).

I'd be up for trying out the Caffine & Machine; about 1 hour for me - very similar to the MK Meet...
Is it even a potential "venue" for our meet? (Making it a Beds meet, not a Buck one - but hey-ho! :D )

To answer my own Question "yes", they do "Yard Meets" (https://caffeineandmachine.com/whats-on ... ard-meets/) for car-clubs... But there's a cost of £10 per car, some of which can be used against their menu.
Open to 9PM most weekdays... But they state Yard Meets only on specific days of the week...

Might be worthwhile considering for a one-off during spring or summer?
"Want to make one of our Yards your own for the evening? During certain weekday evenings, usually Mondays and Tuesdays, we offer car clubs, companies and more the opportunity to reserve the Yard, guaranteeing you and your group priority parking in front of our iconic venues.

Maybe you’re a car club looking for somewhere a little more inspirational than the usual retail park or county showground for your next meet. Perhaps you’re a brand looking for somewhere to have a drive out with your customers. Maybe you’re an influencer or other big name and want to hold a meet-and-greet for your fans. Whoever you are, we can accommodate.

Yard Meets work by us creating a private event, only bookable via a link which we’ll share with you to distribute to your wider group. Members can then book in at the standard ticketing rate of £10 per car or £5 per bike, half of which they can claim back on food and drink.

While our sites are still open to the general public during Yard Meets, our car park teams will reserve front parking in the Yards and ensure only members of your group are parked front of house. If you have any particular cars you’d like to put on display, then just let us know and we can make arrangements for that too.

While we tend to organise these on evenings with no other events, usually Mondays or Tuesdays, we’re happy to discuss the possibility of booking something during the day, or on weekends too.

To get the ball rolling on your Yard Meet, drop us a line at events@caffeineandmachine.com."

Sounds good, if someone wants to take the lead on organising it? Be a nice start to the summer for the end of May or something next year.

We can come but the Rex is SORN, or happy to skip this month. Although we can’t do November either.

I reckon we should skip tomorrow and all catch up at the Oxford Xmas meet in November... Weather is dodge and turnout doesn't look great so far.
