Cor, this sounds ace! I remember Sir Saabnut speaking about his French estates at the last shitefest, sounded awesome back then.

I wonder how much petrol the Hearse can guzzle on this trip? Or will I have the BX GT sorted by then?

Also, there's a concert I would stab a bitch to attend in Versaille on the 3rd, dates never line up that nicely! I think I just had a trouser moment 😲

The concert is two countertenors singing works by Luigi Rossi. in the Versaille Palace royal opera house. I love renaissance opera music and one of the two countertenors performing is my absolute favourite - Philippe Jaroussky. It is not cheap, at all, but I have suggested it'd make a very good present for my birthday this year that the OH missed 🙄

Sounds like we're amking a holiday out of it, a trip to Saumur to topup on bubbly (if we don't get hooked on the local stuff that Saabnut was telling me about at SF19) and a good ol' mooch, dust the parler off etc.

We tend to like the Saumur wines as well, and somewhere to try if you like white is Vouvray.

I usually feel a bit under pressure to buy if I just rock up to taste wines, but this you pay a few Euros for a tour of the cellars and the bottling factory, then a tasting at the end. As you've paid you don't feel bad if you taste and don't buy, but I wouldn't be surprised if you do :-)

Saumur do a mean wine festival, 3EUR for a glass and a hundred vintners wines to taste for free! All alongside the river loire with a pretty french town/city as a backdrop. Weather is usually good in the first week of September too, when they hold it.

But Saumur is almost all pedestrianised now Matt, our friends went this year and it was quite a shock. Like the Saumur whites, love the bubbly but not so keen on the reds of the region. We usually do end up buying something when we go tasting tbf...

I love Vouvray, I have a few of  Daniel Jarry's  bottles from 1985 and 1988 and 1991 left. He's just up the road from the cave cooperative.

      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.
