Following top level negotiations by a crack team of specialists, I have now scored permission for a Saturday burger meet up at Portsdown Hill.  So that'll be September 11th, 12 noon, all Shiters within reach will be welcome.

Bumparama as its this weekend.

Hopefully Mr Ramrod doesnt mind. :)

Mind?  I'm delighted, thank you!  In fact I was literally just about to bump this thread myself.

As it's the 20th anniversary of 9/11 I'm seriously wondering if we should have a minute of silence at 2pm, the UK time at which it all kicked off.

TGI couldn't be much nearer, it's on the same car park!  But I'm not keen on TGI in general, and MrsR didn't want anything anyway, so I just went and got an OAP portion for myself.  And very nice it was too.

Always think that chippy is in a bit of an odd place. There can't be much passing foot traffic. 

If you're looking for a nice place for a wander near there then there's a small area of woodland tucked behind dunelm mill that's pleasant. Go past the chippy, b&q and into the bit where argos and dunelm are. There's a short flight of stairs down the left side of dunelm to a path and if you go right round the back of dunelm the access gate to the woodland is on your left, just before the path reaches road.

There was a time when that would have been a suggestion we adopted almost immediately :) but, those were the days...  Neither of us is up to a lot of walking now (MrsR more so than me) so I'm afraid we will have to pass.  Been on a nice little ride round Southampton this morning though; going out shortly to see the granddaughters.  And their parents!

      As mentioned in the Shitesteddfod Thread  the North Wales Classic Car & Motorcycle Show takes place at Bodrhyddan Hall (Clwyd LL18 5SB) on Sunday, 5th September, 10.00am - 4.00pm. This might be an alternative to Chumley and a good chance for some of us to get together. Details here
      You don't have to pre-book but if we want to park together as a club we'd need to let them know numbers in advance. From the website:
      "Please note, clubs that are wanting to be situated together at the venues and total more than 5 vehicles, we are asking for you to pre book to ensure we have the right space allocation.
      As a club you are still eligible to pay on the day we just need to know numbers for the allocation of space. 
      Customer MUST be in a classic vehicle for the special on the day price to be honoured.
      Classic Vehicle - classic car (aged 2007 / pre-2007) or a car in one of the following themes: American / kit / custom / replica car"
      so our shite should qualify. I'm happy to take on getting us in as a club so please let me know if you're interested in coming and I'll sort it. We'd need a club name, how about Clwb Ceir Cachu?

      Righto, shite fans of Norn Iron,

      A suggestion has been put forth that a mini-meet of sorts could be arranged for those of us perched atop this enchanted rock, to strengthen bonds and ogle at terrible, terrible cars about to be inflicted on some other poor bugger.

      Venue is: Ballyclare Car Auctions, Dennison Industrial Estate, Ballyclare BT39 9EB


      Date is: Wednesday 8th August 2018, from 7pm onward


      Deep-fried items of varying degrees of danger are, apparently, available onsite for those who wish to test the strength of their stomach and other major organs.

      So pop along, in whatever vehicle you fancy, for a bit of craic and to participate in the ever-popular Crispiest Wheelarch Spotting Competition.

      I'll be there, I believe The_Equalizer will be there, and a few other expressions of interest have been indicated from local shiters.

      I may even be wearing my newly-arrived Autoshite t-shirt (courtesy of FilthyJohn) to aid recognition.

      Drop a line below if you reckon you fancy coming along!

      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.

      With the advent of this pesky virus I for one have been missing things such as car shows, Cannock chod-fests and random meet ups.
      Employing my crystal ball I’m hoping that maybe, just maybe, Chumley will be on as the date is mid September. If kids can go back ‘safely’ to a school full of kids then I’m sure an outdoor car show will be fine. Fingers crossed.
      For the new and uninitiated, Chumley Castle car show is a staple of the AS calendar where we bring down the tone of a proper car show by entering rusty Renault 4s, deteriorating Dacias and crumbling Cadillacs (being literally pushed) into the show ring.  The commentator makes for hilarious listening, although we’re usually placed so far away from the ring we can’t hear him.
       Any way who’s in for Chumley this year... if it goes ahead?
