On the back off GT Regional Meet 2014 thread raised by Tony http://www.alfaowner.com/Forum/alfa...gional-meet-for-2014-10-year-anniversary.html can I ask all GT owners to kindly vote in this poll so that I and dtone (Tony) can get a fix on the level of interest in a split National GT Meet in the South & North .....The North will of course win hands down ;) :rolleyes:

No prizes for the area that attracts most GTs but I might have an ace card in the shape of a special guest car ........I'm saying nothing !

In the event that the meets do indeed go live two separate RSVP events will be posted in the events lounge.

The proposed date for this special 10th anniversary event is Saturday 17th of May , locations TBA although the North event will most likely be in Preston. A good few guys got together in the North at the Ibis hotel on the Friday night prior to the first National GT meet in 2013 ....good food and beer a plenty...room prices very reasonable.....:thumbs:

Update 20/01 : the date for the South meet will be 31st May > 1st June ......

the date for the North meet will be 17th May to include stay over options on both 16th and 17th at the Ibis Preston

Both meets were a great success and a great day was had by all ....

As a footnote depending on the outcome I will be perhaps looking to organise the first Euro GT Meet in 2015 having established contact with Dutch & German GT club members ....still looking for other contacts throughout Europe .

Poll will close on Feb 1st automatically ....sorry but I will be on holiday from 25th Jan > 1st Feb and will be unable to answer any messages.

Depends when it is, and if I'm in the country, but yes, I'd love to go:mygrin1:

*edit* Just seen the date proposed. Not sure if I'll be there :(

As an aside, has any one else got a GT in this colour..? 117b, is the paint code.

Voted - North, difficult to decide which meet to attend when you live in the middle.

I voted maybe as I really want to come but cant go during may.
I think south would be best for me but again depends where exactly in the south it would be held.

Would prefer it further north, we're not all made of money :cheek:
Hear you Frank , just been told I'm off for six weeks with no sick pay ....just broke a bone in my hand ....might follow up with another Scottish version as I did last year , would love an escort down if you can make it ....hope to get some more Scots coming down this year , all will be revealed when RSVP is set up ....fantastic early response after only three days .....it took a good few weeks to get into double figures last year ...!! :D

That's a real burger about your hand mate, hope you are OK.
I'd love to get to the 'Big' meet, but, as we're all aware, money is tight. With two kids in Full time ed and a disabled wife, there's only my money coming in, so, I really have to balance these things out ;)
