The Saxon Mill was much easier to get to for me....I work in Coventry and stay in Kenilworth so it was an almost perfect location...The Leopard means either driving through Leamington or going via the M40, A452 unless I come straight from work....in which case A423 then B4455....might be an idea I guess....

The reason I chose to change the location is because the Saxon mill is a very busy place and there was not much space in the car park. I suggested a trying a different pub at the meet and people seemed receptive. Its by no means permanent. The leopard is pretty much a straight road from kenilworth so its not so bad, hope to see you there

These are the depths I have sunk too in order to boost the numbers for the warwick meet. Last night I accosted a perfect stranger that was just getting out of his GTV V6 in Sainsbury's car park and encouraged him to attend the meet!

Thankfully he turned out to be decent fellow and has now confirmed his attendance.

So if you see a floppy haired idiot coming towards you in a car park somewhere, please don't run away or call the rozzers....its only me

I'll drive straight from work, so I'll be HUNGRY!
What you reckon is the best route (at least traffic wise) from Milton Keynes, M40 or M1?

New location worked well, plenty of space in the car park and I got a part time job out of it!!!

Once again, thanks for coming everyone
Peace

Ok people, I've been thinking. December is a busy month for many people so I think we should make our next meet in January. What say you? The second Tuesday in Jan is the 5 th so I think I'll plan it in for then. If there is overwhelming support for a Dec meet then I'm definitely up for it. lets see how the land lies.

I must say, in the first two meets we've had I've met some great people so please keep an eye on this thread and we'll all meet again in the new year, hopefully with some new people?

I'll give it a couple of days for you all to think things through and then I'll post the new details.

Speak soon guys, I'm off to have my hair cut even shorter! I love the 'fresh out of jail' look!

Peace
