Shitefest 7th -9th June 2019

Recommended Posts

It'll either be the Lada towing shite trailer tent or buy something in the area just before and pray it gets there….. I shall have the lada and tent ready - but probably bankrupt myself lobbing bids on something that will grenade itself 4miles from vendors abode.

Always wanted an excuse to buy something that far away…………

Is anyone else checking this daily hoping for the dates they can make to overtake the ones they can't?

 

For some reason I've been trying to work out the cheapest way to carry a tent on the vfr. All while ignoring the slight issue of it not being in one piece at the moment... Plenty of time to sort that out

Two bungees over the backseat.

I asked for that :P

 

I should have said I'd been googling small tents given the only one not on wheels I've got half fills the focus boot.

 

So the real cheap answer is come in the focus but that doesn't sound like making the most of an excuse of a couple of days away.

Maybe the poll should be for the dates we definitely couldn’t do and the one with the least votes for that wins.

 

Coz like a few I voted for most (there was only one I can’t do) but if there are some dates others can’t do...

 

Or maybe I’m being pedantic...

 

Say if I am... sometimes I need telling...

I was thinking exactly the same thing!

We'll have a Football Club Committee meeting before long and we'll announce the date then;  I'm thinking that it would be inconsiderate to hold it when Saabnut is off to LeMans as he has said he would like to attend.

 

The farm shop down the road has been sounded out about all day breakfasts - they would like people in early as they get pretty busy on Saturday mornings - Sunday for the traditional Scottish hospitality?

 

My local would be pleased to see some visitors, £3/pint at the moment and they do a fine egg and chips (pickled egg in a packet of crisps);  the front bar looks like it hasn't changed since the landlady's father in law bought the place in 1946 - and she hasn't changed much in the 30 odd years I have been going in there, doing well in her eighties. For gourmets the other pub does good food - somewhat gastropub

      Hi all,
       
      Bit of a random one but do any Manchester/Derbyshire/South or West Yorkshire based Shiters fancy a meetup sometime in Glossop?
       
      I know it's not exactly a sprawling metropolis but it has a reasonably priced car park, a Wetherspoons, a caff, etc.
       
      Main reason for suggesting it is it's a nice drive in from most directions - over Holme Moss from the North or Snake Pass from Sheffield direction.
       
      The A624 from the south isn't too bad either.
       
      Something like a Thursday evening would be best for me but open to suggestions.

      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.

      While I’m feeling sociable and non stressed. Does anyone fancy meeting up at Staplefield on the 3rd November to watch the veteran car rally? The pub does a good bbq breakfast.
