The AONS Big North Run 2011!!

Right then folks, brace yourselves!

I've contacted a couple of Hotels up in the North West area to see if the 11/12 of June would be convenient for some Alfa's tearing up the neighbourhood. I've brought it forward a bit in the hope the roads will not have as much Glasgow holiday traffic!

It will be a 2 day event like the July run, with an evening meal and refreshments on the Saturday night. Some of us stayed over in Inverness on the Sunday night too at various b&b's. We were treated to the most bizarre "lock in" after our evening meal. Some fantastic memories of a great weekend.

I don't quite know how I'm going to top that weekend. I've got some good ideas on possible routes and photo spots along the way. What I'd like to do with this thread though is open the floor to you all. Is there anything you want to do? Any place in particular you want to go?

I'm looking to have an rsvp thread up before the end of January. We had 16 Alfa's and 1 Fiat on the 2010 run. If we get anything like those numbers for this one then I'm sure it'll be a success.

Over to you then folks.

Graham

Im on it Graham. 2011 is going to be an expensive year

If the route is a bit similar to last years, i may stop off in Brora for a bit and see me dad. Other than that, i think a fortnight's annual leave should cover everything

D'you know, I was just talking to Sheona tonight about emailing you to make sure it was any weekend but THAT weekend, as I'm booked to do Pud's wedding photographs in the Lake District on the 11th. In essence my only suggestion is to change the date if possible so that we can make it. Pretty please?

No problem Fraser! I'll see what can be done. We have 3 weddings in the spring/summer of 2011 so I will check the diary again this evening. Need you there my friend as it wouldn't be the same without you!
Again this is the reason for this thread, I want as many people there as possible.

Having consulted the CEO (Louise!) would the 1st weekend in May be ok for all? It's either that or we go into August.

Providing i can get a Hotel to cater for us will the 30th April/1st May weekend be ok for all? It's the May day weekend so many of you may be off on the Monday as well. Which might mean a few more of you can stay over for the 2nd "extra" night

just realised that is the 'Royal Wedding' weekend so won't be able to go on the run

Kidding Seriously though, it will be a nice long weekend as we are getting the Friday and Monday off that weekend

No particular preference for me, I think May bank holiday is a good choice. Sounds like there's a V6 on the way soon then G....?

Got confirmation from the preferred Hotel tonight folks! May day weekend is a go go go!

Yes Simon, I hope to make an announcement in the next week or so re the 6 cylinder search. Is it a GT, 147, 156 or GTV though? Watch this space!

Brera, Saab 9-3

The A897 is a good 40 miles of single track road that is always good in an Alfa if you're looking up routes.

I think we should try to take in Skye if possible. A truly awe-inspring island.
