UK Shitefest 1-3rd May 2020

Recommended Posts

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.

Cheers Trigger. 3 way dilemma now, as mostly likely can do 1 from 3...

Shitefest 2020 = 121 miles
FoTU/FoD 2020 = 124 miles
Shitefest international = 350ish

Decisions, decisions!

I think FotU is up Leeds way next year, if their last facebook update is anything to go by.

Is the Ipswich museum just old english chod or is there old Germanic chod there too (here's hoping....)

It's mostly British stuff, electric Sherpa van, Omega police car,  aTrident car then lots of old ex IBC buses.

Count me in for this one for sure! I really want to make it to a shitefest, so i'll be damned if I miss this one!

Im really hoping to have REV on the road, with a full driving licence by then and so I should be able to make it down without having to depend on anyone (although im not sure how overnighting is going to work out as I don't do tenting in a sleeping bag, I need something vaguely soft to sleep on!)

if I dont have REV on the road/a full licence by then im going to be very disappointed in myself!

You pick the date Trig, one that suits the pub and doesn't clash with anything obvious, SF Intl, RRG or whatever. 

 

euroSF is july and rrg is end of aug so no worries there

@trigger may is perfect as theyre all spaced out and far enough away from french sf :)

I've just read that the Mayday back holiday is being put back next year for VE day to Friday 8th May so that's that weekend out, we could either do 1-3rd May or 15-17th May?.

Either works we me at the moment, but definitely up for this.

It's unlikely to ever be easier for me to get to than this, so I haven't got any excuse in not making it. Plus I have never been to the transport museum, so it's the perfect excuse to finally go there.

      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.

      I have mentioned this to a few shiters over the year and there seems to be some interest so I thought I would make it happen. It also gets the date into the AS Calendar before anything else gets organised for the same weekend.
      The location is half way between Lemans and Tours in Sarthe, Pays de Loire, France, approx 300 miles and 5 hours from Calais, or 120 miles and 2.5 hours from Caen. The date of 3-5 July is the Lemans Classic weekend, where there are great cars on track (where else will you see pre-war Bentleys power sliding and GT40s with glowing brake discs at night) and the car park is probably the biggest and best classic car show in Europe. The AS site is about 25 mins drive from the circuit, with easy access.
      The format is basically whatever you want it to be. The AS base will be at my place in France that a few shiters have visited. I am afraid the bedrooms are already booked, but there is 6 acres of level camping ground,  We will be travelling down from West Sussex via the tunnel and a combination of peage and back roads in a convoy of classics. You are welcome to join the convoy at any point or meet at the venue. We will travel down probably Thursday 2nd and most will return Monday 6th, but some will stay on for a week or two and you are welcome to stay on if you wish. The nearest bar is about 1km away, but 3km away is the famous "Hotel de France" in La Chatre sur le Loir (google it). You do not have to attend the Lemans Classic, if you would rather sit and drink beer (hopefully in the sun) that is fine.
      It will be up to the individuals to organise ferry/tunnel etc and getting there, I can provide camping ground, bogs, showers and a fridge for the beer. No commitment required especially at this stage, If you fancy a foreign trip with your chod, put your name down on the list. Nearer the time those still interested will get further details and the hidden location by PM. If anyone would prefer a B&B obviously they are in high demand around the classic, but I have a few contacts and could possibly find a room or two, but they would need to be booked fairly soon. No booking for camping is required.
      To give you an idea, whilst nothing is yet confirmed, the convoy down is likely to include a Gordon Keeble, a Rolls Royce 20/25, a Westfield, a Mk2 Jag and a Fiesta 1100. It will not be a fast convoy......
      Oooh La La, I'll help destroy the French wine lake

      I've not been before but apparently it's a bigun.
      If I go I'm happy to look out for unobtainium frogchod bits.
