East Anglia Day Time Meet – Chat, Food and a Drive #2, a Good Way to Spend Easter Sunday !



This Meet is proposed and organized by Martin (r1200rt ). The Meet will be on Easter Sunday and is the same format as last years successful Event.

The initial meet up is at Ely and then a drive together to the finish point in Finchingfield. The route will consist of some really superb driving roads and the run will finish at the lovely little town of Finchingfield. This is a very nice little town with a large number of cafe's around the towns green. If the weather allows then sitting outside one of these cafes looking at some great Alfas is a perfect way to enjoy an Easter Sunday.

Do come along if you can and take this opportunity to meet some fellow Alfa owners. I will be there rain or shine so put it into your diary now. Don't just use your Alfa, DRIVE IT!! Looking forward to a good 'Alfa' day. "

Well Happy

Well here you go here is the route for the day.

Start at Ely.

Finish in Finchingfield.

The start meet point will be car park behind the BP petrol station at the roundabout where the A10 meets the A142. There is a travelodge there too so anyone can arrive the day before and stay over ready for the off.

Meet time will be 9.30 with the aim to leave at 10.00am.

The route will be some really superb driving roads, and I mean really superb roads where the run will finish at the lovely little town of Finchingfield.
This is a very nice little town with a large number of cafe's around the towns green. If the weather allows then sitting outside one of these cafes looking at some great Alfas is a perfect way to enjoy an easter sunday.
If you know this little gem of a town then you will know how nice it can be. If you haven't been there before then come along and see a really nice finish location.

So, lets hope for some nice weather and an opportunity to meet some fellow Alfa owners.
Martin

Hi All,
Looks like it could be a nice day for a drive in a nice car. Your Alfa!!

We will be there at 9.00. We will park in the car park for Little Chef/Travelodge.

We will be in our Silver 916 Spider.
See you all in the morning.
Martin

Hi,
Nice to see you all. The weather allowed us to enjoy the roads and our cars.
A good meet and a nice opportunity to meet some nice people.

I will put some more meets together soon, so watch this space.
Talk of a trip over to France perhaps later this year or early next year, was in the air so I will
mix that into my thoughts and see if we can do it again.
Nice to meet you all.
See you soon.
Martin, and Yvonne

Thoroughly enjoyable meet and drive. Well done Martin for planning. The weather held and we both enjoyed the cars and people. A lovely part of the World with some awesome roads and villages; looking forward to the next one!

Glad to see that a good time was had by all.

Martin, I do hope that you can put some more Meets together. If you need any admin type assistance just give me a shout.

If anyone wants to organize a little Meet, eg Pub night or a Brekky Meet, just let me know and I'll help out on the admin bits to get it going.

I'm all for the brekky meet, especially if on a Sunday. No masses out eating early and empty roads, just need some venue ideas.

Sunday breakfast Meets are usually well supported, all that's needed is a " greasy spoon " with half decent parking and a few people to turn up and there you are, a decent gathering.

Is anyone up for sorting one out ?

the Kent/Essex Alfa book meet is at the Pilot Inn 12pm Sunday 1st October. The Essex lot are meeting at Lakeside Services at 1030am on their way down.

Not a breakfast meet...and I've not been on one of their meets before, but I get the feeling that it is more "meet" than "drive"...but of course Dungeness from Essex must involve a drive of some sorts...

I will take the series 2 Spider if the weather is fair.
