Good effort in getting this initial meet together and hopefully the numbers will grow and enable you to hold a meet every month. I remember when I started the Cotswold Allsorts meet, amazingly 4 1/2 years ago, and thanks to a core of 3 or 4 guys who attend every meet and several other regulars who attend when shifts and curry nights don't clash!
An amazing effort from Nigel to travel such a long way to support your first meet.
May you have many more.

it was good to see you all tonight,and thanks for making the effort. although the place was a bit dated and the service erratic, we achieved what we needed to,ie getting the first meet under our belts . i am looking forward to reading any feedback regarding future venues and dates.
I will get the ball rolling by suggesting the 2nd friday of the month,which seemed to be the most popular with most of us tonight,what do y all think?
A special thanks to Nigel,who has helped me with the posting of this topic,and wish him a safe journey home,whichever layby that might be.Rib.

Got home at 4.15am :thumleft: (Had to stop at Beaconsfield Services for some shut eye)

Well done Rob in getting the first Meet started and what a great turn out from everyone :thumleft:

Am sure this will continue to grow with Rob at the helm and with a few of the regulars to support him like Tom, Dave, John, Mark and Adam Image

Tom you must get Jess's Partner Membership sorted out soon :kinky:

All remains to say, I too had a good time and was worth the short drive up North ;)

PS : GT86 average fuel consumption was 43.6mpg :twisted:

Whilst the events new don't see the harm trying out a few different venues for the next meetups and seeing what suits everyone best, the Friday date works ok for me.

it seemed to me that the general Whitchurch area was about right, in as much as everyone travelled about the same distance. What if we looked for a nicer venue around that area?
As a start,lets suggest Friday,14th,June,somewhere around Whichurch. Help with suggestions would be much apreciated now,as my computer skills are pretty limited.

As i see it ,the two make or break factors for this meet to continue,after such an encouraging start are time, and general area,which i have already suggested.
the actual venue would always be based on one persons appraisal of it,and this i think is where i would need help,any suggestions here would be very welcome,Rob.

If this helps I passed a Beefeater on my way along the A41 next door to the Premier Inn :thumleft:

Are there any Toby's, Harvester's, Chef Brewer or Brewers Fayre Pubs in the surrounding area Rob :?:

Don't worry too much about computer skills Rob.Bob there are gardian angels around that will help set up and maintain the first post names list, colours etc: Just send a PM to Nigel or myself if you need some support in maintains the first thread. List numbers and colours continue to be challenge for me at times.

Bit late to the party but thanks for organising Rob, was a good turnout and a successful first meet. Apologies to the South West of Nantwich for waking you all up on my way home :lol:

I'd be hit and miss if we continue with Fridays, but happy if that works for the rest of the group and I'll attend when I can. The venue Dave suggested above looks nice.
