Chodmolestedly - 20th September Chumley Castle... bad news folks.... ?


Recommended Posts

I’m new to AS - I think I’ve pieced together the clues of “Chodmolestedly”, “Castle” and “A49“ successfully to work out where this is, a mere 400mile round trip. I’m in!

Do I need to do anything other than turn up on the day? I’d intend to bring a “show” car rather than be in general parking. Probably the Pebble Beach Volvo 440 if an M-reg is allowed in.

I'd love to see a less crusty 440 than mine! If I still have mine I'll come in it, otherwise it will have to be my 924

If it happens, Mr @brownnova will usually organise tickets. It's usually about 6 or 7 quid to enter a show car on a group stand. Show cars ideally need to be in the show by 11am. Our stand usually gets "allocated" the spot of the field furthest away from the concourse arena.

Mmm it's the weekend I have the children... Eva would probably enjoy it tbh, Charlie less so but Amy works Sundays now, so it'll be a hard no chance of doing a swapsie. 

Hopefully by September they can stay at granny's again and I'll bring Eva and let Charlie have a weekend with granny and grampy. 

I could do it in a day, although wouldn't be able to stay for the ad_hoc shitefest that starts when the field empties, I'll fall asleep on the way home! 6 hour round trip... I'm even more of a maybe now. But plenty of time to work these things out!

It's nigh on 8 hour round trip for us and we still manage the ad-hoc Shitefest. I usually leave the house at 6, stop at the A49 cafe for brekfast about 0915, be at the show for 11, leave about 1700 and up the road for 2100

Aye, but your the SVM, that's a short trip up the road... I've not got the stamina!

Team FAT n BLIND are a probable, may try and wangle Nev_Junior's MG ZS180. It's yellow, and may be fitted with N reg plates, because I've never* done that before....

The Capri is boxed in with all of Outlaw_junior's possessions, so failing that, I'll be in Megamoose (also N reg) or if he's coming, @Nev has 2 stupid cars to bring.

Mind if needs be I think we're allowed up to 10% of the stand to be moderns

This is true. But we expect such trips from the SVM, no one expects anything like that from me... 

(if I swap my weekend, it'll be fine as a late night on my own is fine, but if I had the kids I'd be leaving mega early in the morning then afternoon, just won't work as easily as it should.

Can we peer-pressure @davehedgehog31, @Jim Bell @davidfowler2000 @stereotype, @Ghosty  @reb @Jimbob McGregor @bramz7 and anyone else with a 205 to get them fixed, rock up and make a full row?

I'd be game for coming if it goes ahead, but don't think the 205 will be on the go by then. Happy to come in similar vintage 405 though.

If you can find me an engine without a multiplexed ECU and someone to trailer it there, maybe! I'm not allowed to drive for health reasons right now so attending shows with any car is unfortunately not really possible. ☹️

Do you want me to look? I mean, I have an EW10 I'm planning on using myself...

If you don't mind, that'd be handy, my mind is to all over the place at the moment to manage. I'm unfortunately not in a financial position to buy anything right now, soon I should be though.

      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.

      Are any other shitters going to this? I’ve got a ticket booked and based on the emails I’ve had since it’s still going ahead. I’ve not been to many shows before and haven’t had the best experiences when I have, so it’d be great to see some people and cars from here there.

      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

      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!

      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.
