UK Shitefest 1-3rd May 2020

Recommended Posts

You know what they say about men with long journeys.

 

 

Just ike every years since I've been on Autoshite I'd like to come to this but May is busy with work, my son's birthday and the UK Slot festival so will semi-commit to coming in the 924 or the dark beast of many crumpets depending on weekend ( 2.5 hours btw).

I've provisionally booked the field for 1-3rd May (although i'm sure if people want to stay a extra night it won't be a issue). I hope this will be ok with everyone.

We've still got 6 months to sort the details out but there is toilets on site although no showers unfortunately, I think there's water and electric hook up on the field too.

There's a few Travelodge/Premier inns in town, all about 15-20mins away, the Shipwreck pub at the marina also does lodging too.

This is the field during one of our club nights to give you a idea on it's size, the entrance in in the top right of this photo and that's the pub in that corner.

I'll be back in the uk 2 days before this, so count me in. Also only an hour or so from me, but will be in the Vivaro (pop up tent in the back!) so I can enjoy a few pints!

IF I'm going, and it's a big if at the moment, I could probably pick you up from Harwich, depending on day/time, thus making the whole journey free :)

      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!

      Happy to update the polls with any suggestions!

      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.
