Well,a small step in the right direction towards keeping this meet going. It was good to see Tom,Jess,Dave and ,last but not least,Nigel,who had made yet another big journey in support.
Hopefully,this will be the first meet towards getting back to normal in small ,cautious steps,and on that note,does anyone have any suggestions about an activity for the August meet.
The August meet will be on Friday 14th of August in some form or other,what would be very useful would be suggestions as to which form that meet should take.
So,thanks for your support last night,and i welcome any ideas for the next one,rob.

Fantastic seeing you all yesterday :thumleft:

What a journey back home though, as finally got in doors at 3.20am :!:

They had shut the M54 and then sent on a wild goose chase of Diversions, this took me in the wrong direction and then eventually further North up the M6 :x

Then to cap it all the M40 slip road for the M25 was shut, which then meant another Diversion which took me further North to then connect to the M25 to go South :!:

When I left you all, the Sat-Nav was predicting 1.25am :thumleft:

Unfortunately won't be able to make next month as will be in South Wales to drive Pembrey on the 15th :thumleft:

PS : Will PM you later Rob, as I own you some money ;)

Few pics of some of the fine steeds

Had a lady comment on how nice the Mazdas looked much to Nigels amusement in his GT something.

Nice to start getting back to normality :) ImageImageImageImageImage

I should be free for both days if needed, will you be bringing the MX 5?

Rob I enjoyed the format of the last meet, I will get more organised and get some local grub with you next time

Obviously the weather helped but it was a really nice evening :) even if Nigel did call my faithful Vauxhall a hearse

Hi everyone
I’m new to the group and only had my RX8 a few months now. Looking to meet some of you guys soon though. I’m near Birmingham myself but willing to travel a bit. West mids is a good start for me.
Keep us posted on what you guys are doing and I’ll try and be there. Kev

Oh my god, meeting in Church Stretton is going to bring back so many, many memories.

I used to glide from the Midland gliding club and have spent years and years mountain biking all over the Long Mynd.
Lots of superb roads around the base of the Mynd and loads of very scenic, single track, steep gradient switchbacks up and down the Mynd. God, hope the weather is nice. Loads of eating places and cafes all over the place if they are open.

As for meeting places; the easy to get to and convenient place would be the Co-op supermarket car park in the town centre (loads of room and toilets), or if you are feeling adventurous the gliding club car park high on the Mynd with break-taking views and loads and loads of space.

And Nigel, I will give you a text later on your time when I finish here to see if I cannot facilitate you being there as well.
Be safe.

Ranjan.

Thank you all for your suggestions,it seems we have a plan. Could i ask you Nigel to amend the first post to Thursday, August 13th at 7pm at the coop car park,with a view to grabbing some grub in the town before heading out to Dave's suggestion. Many thanks for the help with this,rob.
