South West meet

Morning folks
I was wondering if there was any interest in organising a short notice Alfa / italian car meet in the South West before the Autumn kicks in??

Somewhere like the M5 services junction 30 at Exeter maybe, or somewhere on the A303, even Weston SM or Bristol.

Any thoughts?

How about this:
If anyone interested could reply, stating their location, I'll plot everyone on a map and we can pick somewhere that is easiest to get to for everyone? Democracy at its best - take note EU!

OK, so far the most equidistant location would be Bridgwater or Burnham-on-Sea. See map.
I'll wait to see if we get any more eager SW victims before we think about organising anything. I should post this thread in the general sections too really shouldn't I?

Cool

I'm in Swindon Wiltshire, so Western Super Mare would be OK, could all meet in the Morrison car park, then drive into Western in an Alfa convoy.

I think there is an existing Monthly Alfa meet at a pub in the Bridgwater area.

I did get told about it, I have since wiped my phone and lost the text messages outlining when and where it is held.

Hi Anthony, no the 4th Sept was the Kilarney meet, we hadn't suggested a date yet. That's probably the next thing we should do though.
I had mid-Sept in mind, as Summer holidays will be over with and everyone is back to work and in need of something to look forward to!
(Me included)
What say you chaps?
