You can't really park two cars in "missing man formation", can you :roll:

Even (or especially) after 4 years away, I still miss not being able to join you guys for these meets itrw :(

I'm OK for 3/5 if it suits others better, but won't stay late as I have an early start the next day.

Maybe we move it to next week if no one has any objections?

As there's not much take up this week, I'm moving this to next friday 03/05/19 to see if there is more uptake

We will have one last meet at the 6 Bells and then next month I propose we hit the Bungalow Diner in Marks Tey for a change of scenery

Thoughts?

Still OK for next week :thumleft:

The next one will fall on 31 May. I can't make that one as I'll be down in Chippenham, ready for an early start the next Day; JDM Combe ;) That may well affect some other Essex based people?

The following one would be 28 June (proposed Bungalow Diner, so very close for me :D ) but I'm on holiday 8)

Maybe we should settle on TWO venues, one in south Essex, one in north Essex, and hold alternate meets at those locations? It'll make it easier for people at the extremes of the county to make a "nearer" meet and have the option of travelling further to the other one if they wished? Maybe Colchester (I would say that wouldn't I!), or a bit further south, Witham(ish), plus Basildon(ish) - although I don't know the Basildon area at all!

Apologies to those in Chelmsford area though, as they'll have further to go, but they'll have two options within about 30-45 minutes travel I guess.

Next week is perfect for me as long as Jack can go.

And I'm real close to the bungalow diner, so if we go there I should be able to take my own car. Only been there once so will be good to go again :)

Eventually could have made tonight after all. However quite happy with the 3rd May with the usual caveats. Similarly quite happy with the North/South divide, although this is likely to make both meets short on numbers so not ideal, just that I am not likely to make a more northerly venue too often, if ever, but that should not influence any decision.
Now a distant memory unfortunately.

Real shame the Empire became a sex shop!
Everyone liked that one

I'm happy to go with 2 meets on alternate months
It looks like end May/early June one may well be light on numbers due to Coombe and the week after is Tunerfest south

Me, CheekyWankel and our friend Millie will be coming (in my RX8, at last), although we wont be there until half 8. Although a quick FYI, Gary had forgotten about the meet until last night so doesnt have a table booked :/

A rather depleted gathering this evening, but enjoyable nonetheless, and the food was good. I thought I was going to be on my own for a while!
