I would like to ask all you good East Anglian folks where and what you would like to do for a meet.

In the northern reaches we have a monthly pub outing which is pretty well attended, especially in the summer months. We have organised breakfast meets too - the first one had 23 people roll up!

As you know I live in Cambridgeshire and don't know the other parts of the region well. If you let me know what you like to do for fun, day out, etc I WILL source it and organise it........of course you're all very welcome to the Christmas party at mine next Thursday evening :D

COME ON YOU LOT

get posting





















PLEASE:thumbs::rant::D

I think we should rotate meetings in East Anglia as its such a vast county, Cambridgeshire (Peterborough, Jillys neck of the woods), Suffolk, Norfolk (Norwich, my neck of the woods) lol on a quarterly basis as I think this will generate more interest lol .....:)

not bad Sean, how about if we have four "big" meets like that (maybe taking motor shows into consideration) and smaller meets more locally to ourselves. i think a drum up of interest is in order. maybe talking to local specialists persuading them to have a few leaflets on their counters.

It is a huge area.

I was the rep once (a few years back now) and I did as suggested above - move the meetings from Norfolk to Suffolk to Cambridgeshire.

I just looked at the map - picked a pub and said let's meet here. A few people turned up and we went from there. Sometimes it was just me and one other - other times 20 turned up.

gtv73 I agree with you.

Jill - please don't feel daunted by the task - you have gtv73 on your side.

My suggestion is that one of you organises a meet in Suffolk or Norfolk, pick a venue - nice pub lunch works, followed by a drive after. The Cromer- Hunstanton road is a good one.

All I would say is don't ask - just say "This is the meet I have organised" and post the details. They will come.

If they don't then I will, so you get at least one. :)

There's a good pub - The Village Inn - at Little Melton just off Norwich Southern Bypass A47 (turn for Watton) which is one of the Crown Carveries places: look them up on the internet. Plenty of car park space, nice atmosphere, excellent food! :thumbs:

There's quite a lot of events going on in the near forgotten Northern part of the area (Norfolk!) where there's quite a good concentartion of Alfa Romeo cars. If someone 'sifts' these events out then maybe a meet in conjunction with one or more could be of interest? :rant:

Sean....Well done that man.......I'd almost given up the will to live :lol:

There will be the usual local to me things going on and I try VERY hard to get to all of the above :D

Do I need a 'special' outfit for Peter Pans playground meet??
You may need to ring the pub and book a table for the Feb one Sean? I'd put it up as an event and take it from there?

See ya soon :thumbs:;):D

Thank you Jilly, :D

With Freddie aka 'carrotsucker' help, get a table booked with more details to follow and will be booking a table up within the next week or so. May be also doing a breakfast meet in December at the same place as kindly recommended by Freddie. :D

Oh yes you need a outfit.... a choice of two lol.

1. Dress up as Peter Pan, wearing green and green tights. :lol:

or

2. Dress up in white stilletos, white handbag and talk like me acting dumb as I come from essex too, happy days. :cheese:

'Now what was the next word I have to say' :cheese:

Sean:thumbs:
