Devon Based Mini Meet.........

It appears that there are several GTA owners in the Devon area, so who fanceys a local meet? There are a couple of peeps interested already, based in Plymouth and Somerset. I'm Torquay based. I thought Exeter could be a good location as it's straight off the A38. I've not attempted to organise a meet before but if you are interested in meeting around this locality in the next couple of weeks then post your interest here. For us meet virgins I guess we should start with something straightforward(oh 'er Mrs!)like meet up, look around the cars, maybe a drive to a pub for a sly beverage! It could be maybe a Sunday or one evening...as I said probably easiest to keep it simple to start! Post your interest and what dates, times you are generally free, and if you gave a good idea of venue. Depending on the number of replies we can then vote on location and date! Over to you

Sparkey, i like your thinking...

There is a meeting taking place on the 20th Sept, its a little further down than exeter but it would be nice for the american boys, who we are metting up with, to see a few GTA's and some italian muscle

Like you know Sparky i am very keen for a meet! even more so if a few GTA's get Involved. Weekends generally work best for me but I am open to other suggestions.

Two requests!!!!!

1) Must include some good driving roads! (Dartmoor maybe)
2) Stop off at a good pub for some Photos, Chat, Food and maybe just one beer!

Im up for it! i finish work around 4 monday-friday but at the moment im stupid busy at the weekends!

Exeter is only 40 mins (ish ) from me so thats fine! the best roads i know are cornwall way, although there is a good section across the moors between princetown and tavistock. Its a 40mph limit and there are cattle which make you a little nervous....at 40ish!

Ok chaps, I think we are already making a little progress with this one! Jim, you say you are quite accommodating on the day, but Robcdav is busy at the weekend. I always work Saturdays too, so maybe an early evening meet.....I generally get a Tuesday off(although not next week as it's 1st day of new registrations) so 'maybe a Tuesday evening?? We would need to move on this as the nights are already closing in. I did have a thought about this bank holiday but I'm sure people may already have things planned and the roads will be full too! So, it looks like a drive across the moors is in, and I'm sure we will find a nice little pub to indulge in around the moors. What do you guys think about the suggestion of a tues evening meet?

I can check with work tomorrow about getting bank holiday off, shouldn't be an issue as I'm working my normal day off next week. If I can get it off I'm cool with the bank holiday! Robcdav.....what are your thoughts?

Its a social event as much as anything else....

Route 38 is where all the american cars gather once a month from around devon and cornwall, from time to time other car clubs go down there as well..

Sounds like fun.....I'm not sure if I am working that Sunday. I work every 3rd Sunday generally but I'm shifting them around so that I can go to the lemans series final round at silverstone on the 13th. When is the latest you need an RSVP?

Ok Jim, it looks like robcdav has disappeared, I know that he said he was busy this weekend anyway. Well i'm up for sunday if you are mate, looks like the 'literal' version of a 'mini meet', but you have to start somewhere!

How is sunday late morning sounding to you. This would give me time to clean the car
I'm pretty open on location, if you like we could meet at a services near Exeter?? If you PM me your phone number then I can call you this evening

Ok, only 2 confirmed for this but still chance to join in! I've planned a route which has been recommended on another thread. Meet at Exeter services 11am this Sunday. Take A377 to Barnstaple then take A39 to Minehead. It's meant to be a great road with good scenery. This weekend there will be traffic about but we can't do much about that. There is a pub, The Rockford Inn half way between Barnstaple and Minehead, should get there for 1pm at the latest. 10 should food and a drink. We need to book though as it's bank holiday! So post asap if you're up for it!!

Only just seen this thread - haven't been checking lately . Afraid I can't make anything this weekend but would be happy to try to meet up some other time. Perhaps I'll see some of you at the Route 38 thing?
