Breakfast 07 December 2008

As the official Breakfast Club thread appears to be closed, or I appear to be stupid (form a queue please), let's try and provide a great show of WM Alfas for this event. I went to the Feb one (see photo - I was the ONLY Alfa there) and it was a great chance to see the plane thingies, apart from the cars. What's the name of the pub we mentioned convoying from? Would be good to arrive en masse.

Re: Breakfast 07 December 2008

There's a sticky event thread at the top of the page for folk to RSVP in if you're interested in this. Can't make it myself I'm afraid, but it would be a good opportunity to get some WMAO pictures in daylight

Re: Breakfast 07 December 2008

I'd be up for this, is it just a case of RSPVing in the above thread or do I have to sign up for anything anywhere?

I think your night-time photos are great Aubrey; very eeeeerrrrrm... atmospheric, but in your absence, I'll volunteer to take photos of all our cars there. I've RSVP'd to the thread, but can't add a post to it.

Really? The post reply button is still there for me and the thread is definitely not closed, so it should work.

Just an RSVP is fine, though once you know who's going you may want to arrange a meeting point so you can convoy in and make an entrance!

Re: Breakfast 07 December 2008

Guys n Gals, FYI, The AROC Central & East Mids section are coming to this meet, having pre-arranged/reserved a number of parking spaces a while ago. They are one of the more active sections of the AROC, so i'd guess on there being a good turn out from them, so this could be quite an Alfafest!!!
I was thinking of going anyway, just 'cos its the last one of this year, and its not far away from me, so I'll make it a date on the calendar and see yo'all there.

Re: Breakfast 07 December 2008

I hope to be coming to this one , how about arranging a meeting place beforehand and cruise up in an Alfa-convoy. ok , 3 isnt much of a convoy , but its better than nowt and maybe more might turn up if we arrange a specific time and place.

Re: Breakfast 07 December 2008

Pub car park on the A41 north of the M54 Cosford junction (Cosford is south of it) Shouldn't be difficult to spot a few Alfas at 08:30 on a Sunday morning. Got to be inside Cosford before 09:00. Leave at 08:45 ish.

Re: Breakfast 07 December 2008

Sorry for the delay in responding to any mention of a meet up & convoy but I've had poor or no internet connection thru this week. Now that its sorted I can get back in touch with the outside world again.
I'll try to make the pub meet (i'm guessing its The Bell @ Tong?)
If i'm not there by 8.40ish, i'll go straight into Cosford.

Re: Breakfast 07 December 2008

its looking like i shall be there. I shall be at the pub in tong at about 8.30 ish , see you there guys.

ps - come on all you midlanders, its a local meet and should be a good few hours out. I'd have thought more than 3 or 4 would have come to this , were gonna be out-numbered by other AO regions on our own turf.

Re: Breakfast 07 December 2008

Great turn out from the Alfa guys today , i believe it was 17 at the last count.
A bit bloody cold mind and i still feel so sorry for the guy who came in the Ariel Atom. Awesome car but if it was mine it wouldnt have been there today unless it came on a trailer. His feet must have been like blocks of ice.
if my pics have come out ok i shall post them as soon as i get a spare hour.

Re: Breakfast 07 December 2008

Enjoyed my look round the brilliant museum and a look at all the great motors, the trip over was pretty good, one slight snag being totally unable to see due to frozen screen washers and very mucky roads, we came in a 7 ship formation behind red leader in black GT1, I was behind red 2 in Blue Brera V6 with red 4 just behind me in custard 146 flying a tight formation in my jet wash using my nav lights as he too was flying blind, well done west mids yowm did a great job.
