Go for it TNM. We started to get a decent gathering last year, hopefully it will kick on from there.

Re: With the weather changing . .

You will be fine. We ran the first one last year but due to other reasons I havent been able to organise another one since. We had a few people come.

Normally just really informal (as you would expect) make sure you turn up with a clean car! few drinks at the pub (no alcohol mind!) and talk about crap really!

Re: With the weather changing . .

the clean car i can manage, and the talking crap bit comes naturally.

i'll have to read up about this "no alcohol" thing though.. never heard of it.

Re: With the weather changing . .

Right you lot. I need some stuff to look forward to, my car is booked in for a cambelt service at Alfa Tecnico next week, then it is Easter, but who fancies a pub based meet like the last one for a bit of Sunday lunch on the 19th April?

If there is interest we will get a regional rep or something to sort us out with a proper event thread and we can kick off a nice summer of meets, where the sun will always shine and the beers are on GTA Jim

All in favour?

Re: With the weather changing . .

Been trying to bend my friends arm to change my waterpump. Once hes found some cam locking tools he will say yay or nay.

Then I will be able to make it all the way there without stopping for my car to cool down!

Ah! I love Turkey. Spent a month there going around and mental all over the shop seeing the sights It was amazing. In love with Istanbul, Olympos and Cappadocia. Where are you off to, you will love it - sure you have been before.

The vectra has done about 10 miles since I got it home. Its a project. Needs the bodywork sorting and susspension bushes changing.

Drive the Tiguan every day. I can run people over if im bored. Or their cars if im really really bored when waiting in traffic
