Northern Twixfests - Middleton in Teesdale - POSTPONED - try again in March


Recommended Posts

Would quite like to come to this but our weekends in July, for some reason, are currently booked up with various things on either the Saturday or Sunday until the weekend of the 11th August, so my vote would be then so we can make a weekend trip out of it :D

@spike60 did you have any thoughts on a potential location?  You did a fair whack last time

No, I'm easy really and happy to go with the flow. I'm in the minority coming from the deep sarth so while it's nice to be considered it makes better sense to centre it where most bodies are. It probably doesn't make much difference but which A68 Cafe? Bishop Aukland or Jedburgh?

Thank for the tag.

If this fall's on a sarrada there's a good chance of me getting amongst it, that said I'm a bit crap with commitments and as such if I am able to attend it will likely be a spontaneous affair so I won't bother voting.

Fingers crossed life aligns itself and I can make it, the last one looked canny.

Fish Quay would be ace but I'll go wherever.

In either a big fast Saab or a little fast Renault...

Fish Quay was great for crack and chips, but bollocks for driving other people's cars.  Chips and sea would be good though, any suggestions mebbes a bit further up the coast?

Think I've tagged a few more, please don't be offended if I've missed anyone out or if you found this first ( @JohnK ) please tag anyone I've forgotten.

      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.

      FOTU tickets are on sale - it's Grimsthorpe again, hopefully they have some better ideas about queues this year. 
      I'm thinking of trying for concours with the Civic sedan...

      Discussions were had today between myself and @320touring and it was decided we have a goodly number of somewhat fast and comparable cars within the core Scotoshite between his Clio 182, @dome's Kangoo 182, @jaypee's BMW 316i (Honest gov), @Supernaut's 323i and my V70 T6 and we should finally do a race. We have decided on reviving Club GLF (GANNIN LIKE FARK) and we shall be meeting at Crail Raceway for some drag racing.
      This is also an open invitation to all yous who fancy coming and joining us for the day even if it's just for the bantz, plus you'll be just up the road from Anstruther - home of the chippie that's never done winning best chip shop in the UK awards. Deetz below:
      Crail Raceway
      Drag and Drift Thrash
      15th May 2022 (Sunday)
      10am - 4pm
      £10 entry to the track
      £20 to race (No Need to race)
      Helmet required if you reckon you'll crack 100mph on the 1/4 mile. No rentals available even before covid.
      Basic scrutineering will be in force - Battery must be secure, all wheel bolts / nuts present and visible, nothing significant floating about in the car that could become a missile in a crash, no significant fluid leaks... etc etc. Be sensible folks. Don't bring a unMoTable wreck.

      Not sure which page to put this on...
      My stepmum runs a dementia charity, Dementia Support South Lincs. 
      To raise money there's an annual car rally, it's a pleasant canter around South Lincs lanes followed by tea & cake. £30/car. 
      Fun, very informal and no beardy concours inspectors. All shite welcomed. You'll get to meet me and my Puma, and possibly @Cluffy's Corrado if he ever fixes it. 
      Kick-off is 1pm in a tiny village called Aslackby about 15mins north of Bourne. 
      If you just want to come and eyeball the cars it's £7.50 for the tea & cake and they'll be back at base for 4pm. 
      Let's paint the village beige!
      I will send the charmingly old-person Word Document application form to anyone who wants it via email.

      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!
