Old style meet

Hi All

I've been contacted by 5ftnotalot recently, and she'd very much like to meet up with the gang once again, despite not owning an Alfa anymore, so we thought I could post a thread on here and gauge interest.
Our original idea was to see when the next lot of club racing was on at Donnington or Mallory and arrange something alongside, but Lotty has also mentioned the National Space Centre, which I think sounds pretty interesting. It also means that people can bring families along and make a day of it.

This is certainly not exclusively for old members, and people who already know Lotty, anyone is welcome and it's always good to meet new faces, but I'll be very disappointed if people like Rick, Mitch, Bob, MT and Mr T don't respond at some point. You have been warned!

So then, this is just a thread to gauge interest, and maybe put any siggestions forward yourself. Please feel free to post in it.

Re: Old style meet

Of course I'd be up for a meet!

It'd probably be better to meet at a track for a raceday of some sort, lots to see that way and loads of space to park and have a wander around looking at cars without getting funny looks from people!

How about Donington on 27th May... http://www.brscc.co.uk/calendar/even...ingref=dp27may

Re: Old style meet

Responding as ordered

Wouldn't mind Donnington, NSSC is an interesting spot as well, but I have intimate knowledge of that Rocket tower and it brings back bad memories!!

Fitting all these commitments in is difficult though, Mrs Mitch remains unconvinced by Alfa meetings and I can only use so many day passes.

Next one's this event, anybody else going?.

Re: Old style meet

I would also be interested in meeting up with you guys.

However, like Mitch, 'er indoors was pretty underwhelmed by NAD as she had no real interest in spending the day looking at cars . So a meet at some kind of event could work for me (she had a great time at the Goodwood Revival, to the point that she insists that we go again this year! ).



Will MT be navigating again?

Re: Old style meet

I recently heard from lotty as well, good to hear she's doing well again. Of course I'd be up for a meet. Mallory/Donington areas or anywhere roundabouts sounds good.
I can't do the 27th may though as I'm at Nurburgring.

Re: Old style meet

I'm not sure now whether the Space Centre is a well-received idea. Some people seem keen, some not.
It has the advantage of us perhaps being able to do it earlier than the club racing would allow.
People please continue to post your thoughts.
Those who would like to come, maybe an indication of dates that would be good for you?

Donington sounds a good idea. If we had a family day out to look at rockets, I wouldn't get to speak to any of you lot as Tom would be dragging me off here there and everywhere. Unless of course Mrs Bazza would like to look after him.

Re: Old style meet

James I don't have a problem with the Space centre, well I did but I'm over it all now.........

Trouble is I have too many calls on my time, so where ever the meet is I can't promise a turn up, but keep the thread boiling as I think it's a great idea.

I'd be up for a meet! It would be nice to catch up with you all again!

I think I'd prefer something car related at Donington or Mallory than the space centre though.
