Doesn't look like it yet.

All you need to do is suggest a place and time and see if anyone wants to come along. They are quite informal and all self organised. The meets are not organised by the "staff".

A pub with a large car park that does food seems to be popular though

Hi Chenks
I'd be interested!
Like SGould says, name a time and a place and you're off. A pub or a place of interest (near a pub!
) isn't a bad idea...

I'm interested in the boroughbridge meet, will probably team up with 'saab93s' and co.

Chenks: Elvington airfield is very close to York, N.Yorks, so unless you're away this weekend it's not a great distance for you.
more details here

Can't wait!
Cheers, Paul.

I'm up for the 22nd.

I'd be happy to meet any South Yorkshire friends (or Southern friends) at Wooley Edge and convoy up to Boroughbridge via the scenic route, rather than the motorway.

C'mon ... let's get it on. North Yorkshire is a fine place. I'm sure some yokel (erm, local) can show us around. Anyways, car park ... bonnet lifting ... pub ... beer ... pie ... sounds good to me without the driving

There's a great road up from Skipton to Aysgarth, but those of us from West & South Yorkshire can take that on the way up.

What about Thirsk? I know a nice chippy there for elevensees

Still, Boroughbridge sounds good for early/mid morning and just decide on the day where we want to go - "see where the fancy takes us", to use a good, old Yorkshire phrase There's plenty of nice roads and good pubs littered about the place


Mark - you still up for it? What about the rest of the Sheffield massive? Tone? Spence?

Yeah i went home with panda eyes from my shades! Did you have a go in the organisers caterfield, as he called it? Talk about two extremes of cars, oversteer/understeer.
I was in a dark blue 900 and my old man was in a black 900 t9. Both of which had to be limped home! mine seems to have cured itself but the other one needed a new clutch cable! Not to mention a new set of tyres for us both!
Congratulations on buying your new car whats it like? It looked allright on the day.

Looks like we may be away that weekend, but I'll keep an eye on the thread just in case - suggest you try to firm up on a plan to encourage more participation.
