It didn't happen last year because I wasn't fit enough. This year, and on the wave of having done Inverness for Christmas, I'm feeling up to a south-coast trip again. This of course means there will be the usual Shiters' lunch meet at the burger van on Portsdown Hill, most likely on Wednesday May 13th. I'll be in the wheelchair bus, sorry; MrsR has vetoed taking Hairy Pussy even before I've got it home.
We will also be stopping each way at a Travelodge or Premier Inn somewhere in the Midlands, so there might be an opportunity for a Midlands Massiv Meet too. Or even two of them! It worked well enough at Cumbernauld!

As mentioned in the Shitesteddfod Thread the North Wales Classic Car & Motorcycle Show takes place at Bodrhyddan Hall (Clwyd LL18 5SB) on Sunday, 5th September, 10.00am - 4.00pm. This might be an alternative to Chumley and a good chance for some of us to get together. Details here
You don't have to pre-book but if we want to park together as a club we'd need to let them know numbers in advance. From the website:
"Please note, clubs that are wanting to be situated together at the venues and total more than 5 vehicles, we are asking for you to pre book to ensure we have the right space allocation.
As a club you are still eligible to pay on the day we just need to know numbers for the allocation of space.
The ON THE DAY PRICE will be £5.00 PER CLASSIC VEHICLE.
Customer MUST be in a classic vehicle for the special on the day price to be honoured.
Classic Vehicle - classic car (aged 2007 / pre-2007) or a car in one of the following themes: American / kit / custom / replica car"
so our shite should qualify. I'm happy to take on getting us in as a club so please let me know if you're interested in coming and I'll sort it. We'd need a club name, how about Clwb Ceir Cachu?
I may be going to this, work permitting.
I've not been before but apparently it's a bigun.
If I go I'm happy to look out for unobtainium frogchod bits.
With the advent of this pesky virus I for one have been missing things such as car shows, Cannock chod-fests and random meet ups.
Employing my crystal ball I’m hoping that maybe, just maybe, Chumley will be on as the date is mid September. If kids can go back ‘safely’ to a school full of kids then I’m sure an outdoor car show will be fine. Fingers crossed.
For the new and uninitiated, Chumley Castle car show is a staple of the AS calendar where we bring down the tone of a proper car show by entering rusty Renault 4s, deteriorating Dacias and crumbling Cadillacs (being literally pushed) into the show ring. The commentator makes for hilarious listening, although we’re usually placed so far away from the ring we can’t hear him.
Any way who’s in for Chumley this year... if it goes ahead?
