So we had this thread the other day http://autoshite.com...d/#entry1520754 about a possible meet up but more Yorkshire based.

Is it happening? It doesn't have to be Sheffield. We could have it in Wakefield as it's central and between two motorways (and of course I live there) . Leeds as it's giant with a good few places to pick from or er that'd you lot from me.

So what does anyone else think?

So to bump this off page 2 and in case you missed it is anyone interested in a meet up Wakefield area in the next couple of weeks?

Nothings set in stone on time or anything.

I could be up for it, but it would depend upon the location - Sheffield is an hour and a half away for me, but Wakefield is over 2.

Yeah lets sort somat out - years ago we used to meet up at the Redbeck cafe (in the days of mk14dr and the like) but it's been developed a bit since we last went. I have a couple of vehicles I could use, please avoid Thursdays ..

So what about this Friday? Bit soon but why not.

Should imagine the Redbeck is a no go these days. What kind of thing are you all wanting? Just a car park or car park and then somewhere to go?

Car park we could do anywhere really. Retail Park off Ings Road or Thornes Park. But just a bit further down the road is Xscape at Castleford who have Weatherspoons.

OK what about Monday 22nd then? This is far enough to save a bit of money and enough time away from the car show if we want to have a meet there too (though I'm already going to it).

Monday's a good one for me as I don't generally work then. I get paid by the week, I just have nothing spare after my Shitefest fuel, food and beer run, and I've already booked my hours for this week (do so on Thursdays).

Mobile AS won't let you unless you use the 'full site' link at the bottom of the page, and it doesn't seem to be possible in Tapatalk. 

 

I'll come over to that.

Hooli get someone to bring you! Junkman it's only a couple of junctions further on the motorway, very easy to find.

As for where to meet I'll try to get there first and I'll park far away from the building. If you can't find the only red mk2 Fiesta in the car park...

That place is fun - you have to pass Stamford Bridge on the way there from the west too, which may be of interest to some.
