Potential North West end of Summer Meet
(Cheshire/Manchester)



Well myself and 1234dist have been pondering doing a meet for most of the year but our own
car projects and life in general have been getting in the way but would anyone be interested
in an evening mid-week meet up at the end of September or beginning of October ?

We have two potential locations which we will put too the vote, The Salt Cellar in Middlewich
and The Kingfisher outside of Oldham to the North East, please do not vote if you have no
intention of coming, cheers. :wink3

Once the location is sorted we'll sort the day and time, Tuesday 18:30 onwards comes to mind. ;)

Just plumped for Middlewich - dependent upon the date, of course. Would enjoy meeting up and Middlewich is likely to offer a choice of B&B's to make it a nice overnight. let's have the detail and we will consult the rapidly filling diary.

Oops! just realised that, on the location selector at the top of this item, I voted for the wrong site. Will vote for Middlewich this time and apologise for the error. Must be old age.

System won't let me alter my original vote so if Rover 25x would note that I prefer Middlewich, then I would be most appreciative. It definitely must be old age.

Maybe owners are holding off awaiting further Event information. If it is an evening meeting for, say, an hour and we stand around admiring each others cars and asking what polish we each use, then a 200 mile round trip would not be feasible. I for one would not fancy that. However, if there is more to it then let's hear outline plans and maybe others will then put their names forward. Being constructive here - not critical.

usually starts with standing around until the numbers get up to the worthwhile figures then you can plan things to do from there.

But with 5 votes, that pretty much nails the coffin for the amount of time i'll put in, i've done northwest meets

Even hosted fix it days multiple times

The last fix it day i did 24 people said they were coming, on the day 25x was the only one who arrived. So we fixed his and had bbq :cool

Rover owners are flakey when it comes to meets at the best of times.

The Fix it Days and Meets at dist's Unit just ended up being random Sundays were we either
fixed rust on one of my cars or tidied the Unit up *laughs*, most the time it was any excuse for
an indoor BBQ and a brew ! :tongue

Because I felt the facilities at Rover Revival were not up to my standards I bought a new
Kettle, Tea, Coffee and Sugar with Caddies to put them in, spoons and milk *laughs*, all that
gear is still in use 4 odd years on ! :D
