All Ireland Alfa Meet location suggestions

Heya all,

Seen as some people are being demanding (Techie) I'd said I set up a thread first and see what people's opinons and ideas are on this.

And throw out some dates too.

Damien.

I suppose it will really depend on how many people from each area are interested & will actually turn up, there's no point in having it in Dublin for example if no one from that end of the country is going to turn up, Just my 2 cents

Thats why it would be best to have it in the Midlands as everyone will have to put in an effort and travel to get to it !!!!

I wouldn't be willing to drive all the way down to cork from cavan, but yeah, I'd do the midlands provided I'm free from work

Re: All Alfa Meet location suggestions

Wherever suits me. Hopefully ill have the car fully functional soon enough.

I reckon wherever the location is though we need more than just good roads and spots for a couple of photos as we'll probably be looking at a couple of hours driving just to get there.

Wonder if there's anything interesting happing in the midlands over the next couple of months that could be a distraction?

Re: All Alfa Meet location suggestions

Is it the 'Hodson Bay' Hotel in Athlone (on the lake) that you're thinking of ? Athlone is EVEN MORE central than Mullingar

And I know it's a trampish holiday spot but somewhere like Courttown (Wexford) is coastal and between Dublin & Cork. Might make for nice pictures too.

Re: All Alfa Meet location suggestions

What kind of date range are we looking at? Reason I ask is, if it's reasonably far away it might motivate me to get the 75 up and running for it.

Emm August I suppose I need to give work enough time to get it off. And I'll leave it open to more suggestions man. No need to be so hasty. I'm off work for a week so I'll have know more next week.
