Shropshire / West Midlands Meet - Friday 13th August ***7pm***

Post by goodeggbob »

Hi all ,just testing the water here. I was wondering whether there is any mileage in trying to arrange a regular meet in or around Shropshire.

My nearest to Wn is Oswestry so how about say a 50 mile radius of that. this could include Wrexham,Shrewsbury,Bridgnorth,Telford,Bala and Newtown, to name a few.

Anyone with any suggestions,regarding location,times etc,please post on this topic and lets see what we can come up with. We may even end up overlapping other meets, but that should be a good thing.

Thanks, Rob. :thumleft:

I'm in Stafford so Newport and Telford are pretty close to me. Shrewsbury is about an hour for me so not too bad. Still small numbers though

thanks for that,we have got to start somewhere ,i suppose a few more replies would indicate who is where and who is interested. perhaps if people expressed an interest first ,then a mutual place and time could be thrashed out.

thanks all ,we seem to be getting a few replies now,and evenings seem to be favourite ,which is fine for the summer. at the moment somewhere around whitchurch looks to be doable for the majority. what if we went for whitchurch as a get started meet ,and then work on moving location for the next one,and so on. i think once we get the first one under our belt ,the next will simply fall into place. from my research, the middle of a month would be best,so as not to conflict with the midlands meet.
so,what do you all think, and any suggestions would be very welcome,rob.
