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 :)

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.

      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!

      For the first time this year we were actually able to attend this show. It's only 8 miles from home but in previous years we'd always managed to avoid finding out about it until a few days afterwards A free event in the Market Square and High Street, there were probably about 150 cars there including a lot I hadn't seen before, so here's some highlights.

      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.
