2 more spaces left for a Table of 8 =D> =D> =D> =D>

Chris and I have been to this Pub before and the food was very good when we went :thumleft: , also there is an overflow Car Park beyond the Rear Car Park =D>

The main thing for the most of us is there's no M25 to contend with :lol:

I think I've been to as many meetings on 2 wheels as I have 4. People still talk me :shock: :D

We even let Nigel come along and he doesn't even have an RX8....... Oh wait, it's thanks to Nigel we have these great chances to meet.

Cheers Nigel!! =D>

Hi Nigel,

My friend Patrick is happy to come along with me if you want to fill that last place? If another club member wants it, of course - but he'd love to come and see some proper cars rather than his Golf R shopping trolley... ;)

West & East Sussex Meet - Tuesday 15th September ***7pm***

Post by GreySilver Beast » Sat Aug 22, 2020 1:06 pm

The next location will be announced soon boys and girls :thumright:

Our plans are to run this Meet like the one in Shropshire :P , so we will have about 4 locations that will then roll per month along the M23 and A27 Corridors, which hopefully will encourage more members to attend the Meets :thumleft:

All details will always be on the First Post :arrow: :arrow: :arrow: :arrow:

Thank you to those Members who have supported this New Meet so far =D>

West & East Sussex Meet - Tuesday 15th September ***7pm***

Post by GreySilver Beast » Wed Aug 26, 2020 10:43 am

Been looking at other locations and most are being far over cautious and only allowing 6 max at the table and only 2 different households #-o

Looking at this one The Hillside Inn as they allow a max table of 8 like our First Meet =D>

This place would be brilliant when the max 6 is lifted Miller & Carter Brighton and used to be the old Harvester which is right on the M23/A23 Corridor Junction for the A27 and has a big Car Park :thumleft:

Will post up a location for the next one soon :arrow: :arrow: :arrow: :arrow:

One comment I'd make Nigel is that while we have the current restrictions on numbers, if that means going to the same place as last time where they allow 8 rather than 6, then so be it. It's still central enough and works as a venue. We have plenty of time to vary the location when things get a bit easier.
