Recommended Posts

See you there! (Hopefully)

Quite a few familiar names and/or cars if you scroll down the list. In-fact I suspect a large proportion of the cars on show are from Autoshite.

Also many MGBs listed... I suppose they need to make the classic car numbers up somehow!

There are also 69 classic car spaces left available if anyone else is thinking about it.

Has everyone had the email inviting you to enter the concours? Suggests numbers might not be as high as previous years if they're still searching for entries at this stage

Is it still OK to bring kids to the Field Of Dreams? (9,12+14) I've slightly bolloxed my chances of babysitting.

Kids, Dogs, grass snakes anything you like!

That’s a relief as we may well have an 11 year old in tow! Nice to know there might be other kids there if he does end up coming with.

Yes, I got that.  Won't be doing it though as I prefer to just park up and wander off at events.  I assume there's an expectation you stay with your car for most of the day and have to talk to people.  I'd rather not do that....also the 11 isn't mintola.

Excellent.  Although 20th July is 9 days after the Y10's current MOT expires, so I might have to come down in something else depending on how that goes.

No - you're bringing this - I'm panicking to get the XJR6 done in time - and we're swapping motors for a pootle about.

 

Also - I'll probably (almost definitely) have munchkin with me too……… 9 in June - so he'll be well happy with this as a weekends camping.

Not the case at all, we did the same last year as some brilliant cars book into the classic car parking area but wouldn't be out of place in the Concours area.

Forgot to post here, but TPA is officially booked in as of a day or two ago...so that should be fun.

...Even if it is an order of magnitude further away than any journey attempted yet!

 

any plans for a quick MOT?, should be a good test run for seeing how she handles a fast dash across town :)

(no im totally not saying this just because I want to see another Model 70 get a fresh MOT :mrgreen: )

I entered the concours, got an email stating this:

Congratulations!
You have successfully booked for:
Festival of the Unexceptional 2019 - Concours Registration

but the actual downloadable ticket states "Classic Car Forward Parking". I'm guessing they have not yet decided whether my car is unexceptional enough...

The Concours cars will be selected in early June and then everyone will be notified if they have been selected or not.

Thanks, I figured that would be the case so wasn't a negative comment. Will wait and see!

Myself and the Beko-ettes will be at the FOD from about 3.30/4 so I can get the kettle on if it helps? I can't drag them round all day as they wont like it, but it's also my weekend to have them so I can't not.

Will be fun! If you need the Gazebo up Chris leave it in a big pile before you leave and I'll arrive a bit earlier and get it up. Got a chod owning friend who lives in Adwell who is interested in the after party too if that's allowed? I've linked him to this thread so he can say hello if he fancies it.

Where is the nearest hotel to the FoD?

Sleep in the field! I might be, Amy reminded me Eva wanted to do a camping trip, no idea who else is staying though

However for a more sensible answer, Buckingham and Milton Keynes are 15ish minutes away on fairly fast A roads

      Some discussion was had at the recent Scotoshite Xmas scraningtons about a return match at Cannock auctions around the end of January/beginning of Feb.  Saturday auctions are on 25/01 and 01/02. 
      Usual arrangements to apply; ie. Friday evening gathering at one of WS11's glittering* dining opportunities, Saturday brekky at the Trucker's Rest on the A5 then on to Cannock motor auctions for EOL shite and assorted rank-fodder.  And DETHBURGAS.
      Shout up.

      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.
