Well that was another Forum event that epitomises what this club is all about; a gathering of genuinely nice people in a friendly, welcoming atmosphere. This was my first forum local meet and hopefully I will be able to schedule more in the future as it was fun.

Met some new people, well everyone who was there actually; except for Nigel (the first club member I ever met all those years ago at Croft). May I just second Rob’s comment that if you make a beeline for Nigel you will get to know everyone.

Thank you everyone for a pleasant evening.

Yes was a brilliant meet last night! Good location and good company, like Rob says it's great that non-owners can turn up and not feel excluded from anything.

Really nice meeting new people, great to meet you Ranjan!

Think we have a future member and RX8 owner in my friend's son as well, apparently he won't stop talking about RX8s today :)

It seems i got my dates wrong last night,and that the Sept meet does not clash with Combe after all. I will get the ball rolling early by suggesting the Queens Head Hotel,Oswestry,sy11 4eb. See what you think of this please ,and post up your thoughts and numbers.Perhaps after this venue we could pool our possible venues,and narrow it down to 2 or 3 thanks,Rob.

having given this a bit more thought,i would be happy picking a different venue each month whilst keeping the dates the same so as to avoid confusion.
the truth is i am running out of ideas as to venues, perhaps some of our more regular attendees could put up locations that they have knowledge of ,so as to keep the average mileages fair for everyone,rob.

I'm more than happy with the Queen's head bit closer for me circa 45 mins drive time.

Other than that I think we will have a good 4 venues that we all liked. I haven't been anywhere else specific so see if anyone else has a suggestion

Thanks Nigel, Tom you may be right about having enough venues. Barring the Raven,i think we have a good choice of 3 or 4 places, each one of which is convenient for someone,so if we mix them up a bit from now on,we should keep everyone happy.
i was always concious of mileages that members needed to travel when picking venues initially,so as not to discourage them from attending,but it has become clear that our regular people are more than willing to put in the miles when necessary,simply because they don't see distance as a barrier,which is good. thanks,rob. =D>

Well...

You could call it the "West Midlands / Shropshire Meet" :roll:

But I think the problem is "Friday 13th" :shock:
