Phil - Yes, I hope this is still going ahead and now that the clocks have gone forward we should start planning for sunnier times.

Gary - Personally, I'd prefer to do something with just the forum, so we could include the option of going for a group drive somewhere.

Everyone Interested - Any more ideas or suggestions, or restrictions on where and when?

Cheers, Paul.

PS
Sorry, I should have added that I am happy to do whatever is the most popular option to get as many of us in the same place at the same time.

Exactly- Stoneleigh is near Coventry, the show is on Sunday 5th and Monday 6th May, camping is cheap, B&Bs close by, you can arrive on Saturday and stay until Tuesday.

I stay Saturday and Sunday nights, camping with the Jago crowd, there's a shop and bar on site. The onsite hotel is probably fully booked by now and unfortunately the reasonably priced lodge rooms closed a few years ago.

Despite my best intentions, I have not been able to spend enough time getting this event fully organised.

So when I read this ‘next door’ about the last Tribute gathering…

Somewhere around the M25/M1 join (Hemel Hempstead / St.Albans) appears halfway between the two arcs.

A choice of two dates:
#1 - Saturday, 9th June 2018
#2 - Sunday, 10th June 2018

A choice of two options:
A- Meet up mid-morning, go for a group drive out, return for lunch and an afternoon of chat.
B – As above, but stay over, which means it would have to be the Saturday.

A choice of accommodation:
I’ve looked at camping, rooms in pubs, cheap hotels and nice hotels.
But I struggled to find a venue that would cover more than one option.
So if Option B is the most popular, we will have to cross that bridge another day.
But I think to really be KISS, we need to stick with A and just agree a date.

Answers on a postcard please…

Anyone else?

Or am I looking for a venue that can cope with one kit car and three people?

Ooops, It's my sisters fourth time around so it's a bit of a waste of time.
But, is the first time the whole family has been together since my mum died so I am committed.

Obviously, I didn't realise I'd pick such a popular wedding date!

It would be a big help if people who expressed an interest confirmed one way or the other.

Cheers, Paul.

Ohh a meet up! i'll be up for something (not that i'm late to this thread in any way....)

Given that i'm in 2 of the photos you posted (that original Sammio weekend was a laugh even with just a few of us!) , i'd be up for something, but everything going on in work means that i can't commit until nearer the time sadly.

I hate to say it but Swindon does look like a good central point, meaning Castle Coombe might be a good location. Plus i can get there easily without going near the bl**dy M5!

i'll keep an eye on this thread and see what comes of things

Dave - It would be great if you could make it, but I fully understand how work can get in the way.

Any more Yes / No / Maybes?
