Pencil me in on this. I normally head to France once or twice a year to stock up on wine and practice my gallic shrug. MOT dependent it will be in the 505 .... Meaning I will have spare seats available for fellow shiters.

My passport expires on the 16th of July, which apparently means you can't travel. I'll hold out for Trigfest.

You can renew in advance, not sure how far but should be do-able.

Because I care* so much about you lot, I thought I should do a recce on the venue. OK, I wanted a break and an excuse to drink large quantities of red wine, but here are a few photos of the venue taken today, 18c and mostly cloudy with some sun. The weather will probably* be different for the event.

BBQ Area - the tree doubles up as a sun shade

Over for a week next week to deliver the freestanding kitchen and the converted Rayburn. Living the dream moving 2 tonnes of stuff with a knackered back. Ffs

You did see my offer of help unloading if (relatively) close to Sarthe (72)? Offer still stands

speaking of shitefest

is the UK shitefest still on/whats the plan for that?

I know @trigger had a plan on the go at one point :) 

just wondering, as if theres going to be a UK shitefest in 2020 then id like to attend to that one, and ill give this one a pass due to distance and logistics etc

however, if theres not going to be a UK shitefest for 2020, then ill have no choice but to hope I can make it to france!

Funnily enough I spoke to the pub last week and she's happy for us to use the field, it's £5 a night to camp but she does get booked up early so we would need to set a date. They do good pub grub too. I haven't spoken to the Ipswich Transport museum yet about bus rides but I'm friends with some of the volunteers there so will see what we can get.

I’m game, looks great. Work means I’ve had to cancel out of everything I’ve said I’m going to for the last couple of years, but maybe this’ll be the weekend I get to do what I want.

This sounds good. Can I be ranked as a definitely maybe please?

Were I to bike it would there be luggage shitely option? Camping can be bearable but it does need king sized self inflating beds and duck down duvets to be so. Neither pack well onto a diversion 600.

Small tent and sleeping bag will do.   Pastis and red wine/beer will offset the slight discomfort.

      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.

      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.
