Next Kent meet A249 Northbound: Sun 29th March 1pm

Recommended Posts

Nice to see you all again.  Sorry I had to shoot off... bit frustrating as I really needed a coffee at that point!

 

I did get some pictures, I haven't had a chance to look through them yet but will pop them up when I have.

There are (a very few) things which should take priority over shonky old cars; hopefully Mrs Maximus is feeling better.

Sorry I missed the meet, it would have been good to put some faces to the names - you never get what you expect :)

I've got a shonky excuse note signed allegedly by DSdriversmum cos I have just been in hospital having new brackets welded onto my exhaust system (hernia repair) and am forbidden to drive for a fortnight or do any heavy lifting for six weeks.

When's the next meet?

I'd be up for a meet in November.  Yesterday was fairly Baltic with the wind, but it's worth it to meet up and talk chod.

I used to live along a lane at the top of Detling Hill when I was an oik so I am used to the survival conditions.

I've had one bracket done, not a lot of fun, you have my sympathies!

 

Let's try in November as Rob suggests.

A good few years ago , I suppose I was about 18 - 20  , you could get into the old Aerodrome up at Detling .The gates were busted open and the fence was down .Derelict ... Is it still there or has it been built on? I took my 210 gearbox kart up there and raced my mate around  the tarmac loop. He had a Dolly Sprint. It was a  bit scary ,running next to a car at stupid speed .... Then the Police arrived,  blues and two's and that ,   :shock: and we got into trouble.. :-(  There was dug outs, bunkers  and a control tower if I recall ?

 

edit :  I'll take a look on Google streetview !

 

edit edit : Bah, the aerodromes still there ,and the loop :-D , and loads of industrial units ,probably with security  :-(  :-(

The old aerodrome is now home to the County Show and various other events, and a property auctioneer. Local legend has it that old cars including a Rolls Royce were used to obstruct the runway in case of foreign invasion.

18th November seems reasonable to me, I can’t think of anything I may or may not have planned.

 

Might be in the missus infernal Fiat 500x again. One of the few occasions where having the newest vehicle in the car park is a source of shame rather than one upmanship.

 

Is there such a thing as one downmanship?

Oh, by the way.  Cheers for the mags, Christine!

 

Lady Grumpius still has a chest infection...

 

Should be up for the 18th of November.  I may have had time to recover from my NY holiday, work, followed by two concerts at the weekend, then more work by then!

      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!

      Yo! I've been nominated (many times) to organise a shitefest next year, considering i can't even organise my own life then this could be a challenge but I'm happy to try and arrange something if there enough interest?.
      I've made enquiries at the Rose pub where we hold our East Coast Retro car meets on in Shotley near Ipswich, Suffolk (IP9 1NL) and she's more than happy for us to use the field over weekend for £5 per person per night if sleeping over, there are toilet facilities and the pub does good grub plus they have a large room for us to have a meal or maybe a quiz on the Saturday night?.
      I've also spoken to a friend who's a volunteer at the Ipswich Transport Museum and even though the museum is closed to the public on a Saturday he can't see no reason why we can't have the museum to ourselves for a private tour around and even the possibility of a bus ride on one of their historic buses which I'm sure a few on here would really enjoy.
      Now it's obviously early days yet but what i need to know roughly is how many of you shitters be interested in this and i need to give the pub a date as their field is getting booked up so that we can secure for our chosen weekend.

      Anyone else going? UKSaabs is having a show there again this year, so do stop by and say hello.
      One of the advantages of having a stand is you get a code so your club members can get a discount on admission prices on the Saturday and Sunday. Not a huge amount of saving but anything is welcome. They insist that only members can get the discount code, but as you lot are all* members of UKSaabs if you want the code, drop me a PM and it will come back by return.
