Pond House BBQ Meet 2021 - done for this year! Pics in thread!!

Post by Dr. FrankenRex »

Hey Peeps,

Considering the interest in having an RX8 OC BBQ Meet at The Pond House/ AKA Doc's Auto Barn!

Timings: The plan is to meet here at about midday and then get the BBQ lit around 1:30/2pm. In terms of food I can make sure a decent supply of burgers and hot-dogs are available, but if you have any specific dietary requirements please bring your own food as I can't cater for everyone and everything. We have 2 grilles and I'm happy to keep one of them meat free if there are any vegetarians

Likewise, I will have a kettle and water available, but I don't possess enough cups for everyone, so please bring a mug! If you want anything alcoholic then please bring that too - fridge space is available, but I can't bankroll an RX8's drinking habit, let alone their owners' as well!

Location - near Evesham, Worcestershire. There's plenty of parking on site and I've got plenty of cooking space on the BBQ!

At this point it'd just be a social meet, but there are some cracking roads around so could always do a meet, a drive and then a cook-down. There's also space for people to camp overnight if they were so inclined.

If you are interested then let me know and I'll add you to the list below - I reckon we're good for 25 cars if people want to camp and I don't want a divorce...!

So... Whose all going to be camping? I'm currently weighing up the trip home against alcohol and not having to drive back the same day. :lol:

Ooft. One of my friends kids turned 6 recently.. The other is already a year and a half old (not yet met that one) and my great niece is almost one year old already. 😂 When do children stop getting older? Asking so I know when Ill stop feeling old. 😭
