What time do you tend to start the meet?

Sean P and Thomo, I know that you both live and work quite near to me, if you fancied heading over together then give me a shout.

I was at the venue yesterday for another meet that I arranged with my other car... There is a certain England match on that night (-: I can't remember seeing a screen... )-:

Might be worth checking with the venue when you confirm numbers?

Hi Pete,

Thanks for the tip-off. I will call them and check... Last time they reserved the "upstairs" part of the Windmill...
I've now checked the venue - we have "upstairs" booked for 10-12 people... They will show football on the screen downstairs - but I certainly won't have any interest in that! ;-)

Official Start time is 7.30PM - but last time we headed up just after 6PM and were there before 7PM.

I like taking the scenic route - A413 towards Aylesbury, split across to the A418, then A4146 (Stoke Hammond Bypass)... Maybe we can keep to the speed limits a bit better on the bypass and take a more leisurely paced drive - or we could explore other twisties (weather dependent - would not want to venture into deep puddles and fallen trees!) :twisted:

List for Friday 15th June:
SeanP (MRC/RX8OC)
AMH (MRC/RX8OC)
RexPete definite, will bring the missus for dinner... (RX8OC)
GreySilver Beast (MRC/RX8OC)
Thomo (RX8OC)

Maybe??
?adamfitz (MRC)?
?xic1014 (MRC)? - before closing time? ;)
?mpk490p (MRC)?

Updated list on MRC too :-)

When you come into the car park, go to the "top" level, but park to the far left (facing away from the pub), as we were asked to move on rapidly when parked outside the pub/hotel area last time. See This Map

You obviously don't know Sean very well! :lol: Let's hope it's dry enough for a photo this time - at least I can give the rex a wash tomorrow now.

Neil takes the Beemer to Roni all the time.

I've not taken the R3 - the last day of my old RX-8 I did take it and at the one we used to go to (he has two or three in MK) they have a turnstile which you drive off onto rails that take you through the rinse and dryer bit - I caught one of my rear alloys (although I did get shouted out as I might have driven forward before I was fully off it :oops: ) A few hours later rexy was gone. :cry:

I've not risked it in the R3 (and I don't want to get shouted at again! :roll: )

Just make sure you're playing some decent music on the stereo as they turn it up whilst they are drying it and cleaning the inside - it ruins a bad boy image if Westlife or Justin Beeber starts blearing out across the forecourt! :lol:

Well, Great to meet you all earlier and sorry that I could not spend more time with you all...

Next time the missus is staying at home!! :roll:

As said, I am guessing I will be on my Hols for the next meet but will be back for the one after that hopefully!! :mrgreen:

Looking forward to it!!

Nice to meet you too Pete.

Also had a lovely evening and the weather stayed fine. The highlight was waking up Nigel who was fast asleep in the lay by on the A5! :lol:

A nice meet, hopefully we'll gain more attendees as the weather gets better!

Nice to meet a new face, Pete - watch out for those Ka's on Roundabouts though! (There was a good reason I held back in L1!). :)

Sean just a thought and please put me in my place if its a bad idea but I think it would be a fun to all meet at a place called the grassy knoll and then drive to the pub. The best bit of the meets for me is going for the drive and I love driving along hearing the noise of the other cars around me. So why not get a short drive set up for fun.

You prefer "Cruises" to "meets" ;-)

Be glad for you to suggest the starting point, and route :-)

We did say that we would see how it went and then look at a drive (or cruise :wink: ) Neil also knows some good roads round MK so I'm sure we can come up with something.
