*The times shown may change, depending on DST settings
Right then guys the next meet is planned for the 1st February 2009, just enough time after Christmas for everyone to have hopefully have been paid again and maybe the weather will have even picked up (but I doubt it).

I propose we all try and get there for 12 to 12 .30ish, stay there have a chat, take some pictures, eat some food and then if someone can assist me in a route for a drive we can arrange that.

Mark has very kindly arranged parking for us all but please also note there will be NO RACING allowed on site. That means you are ALL going to have to behave

Details are below.

Here is the link for where we are going.
http://www.transportcafe.co.uk/orwel...ruck_stop.html

The full address is as follows:
Orwell Crossing Lorry Park
A14 Eastbound
Nacton
Ipswich
Suffolk
IP10 0DD

Google map link as follows:
http://maps.google.com/maps?q=IP10+0...0.453715&hl=en

Iíll see you all there. Hopefully there will be many more news faces to join us. Letís make this one a big one.

Re: AOEA February Meet Lunch in Ipswich :)

Hi Katy - please don't suggest the A1071 road to Sudbury as a good road - thats just cheating in order to get home quick! I've attached a few thumbnails of some good photo opps in Ipswich just in case they take your fancy. Should be plenty of good routes about, but maybe best to see where everyone is coming from so we don't drag people further away.

Re: AOEA February Meet Lunch in Ipswich :)

Should be ok, I've punched it into AA route finder and it's a 77 mile trek, so a full tank should see me there and back

And on cleanliness, it doesn't move off the drive unless it's spotless so it WILL be clean for you guys (providing I can make it!)!

Cheers,
James

77 miles? That must put you somewhere near me, James. I feel a convoy coming on....
