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


Recommended Posts

I can't guarantee I can come as yet, so if you need to know more I'll say no, otherwise I need to sit down with the boss set off I can fit it in now the kids are back to school and their clubs are starting as well as trying to visit family etc etc. I've started rehearsals again. This month is a bit of a shock to the system!

Hiya,

I was alerted to this for a reunion. Could be up for this seeing as my old shite seems to work for once in 14 years! This very show curseed my old Mondeo SI in 2013 so no guarantees! Has it really been that long?

Pity Chumley has been cancelled as it would have been a good reunion! Am I right in thinking you are the same reanimation that also used to be on Retro Rides? If so I was Jammzr on there and you may or may not remember hanging out at Santa Pod once at what I guess must have been the Retro Cars show.

Shitesteddfod 100% happening. 11th October IIRC. 

My plans to visit Spain are 100% screwed too, so Shitesteddfod is sounding all the more appealing. Though it should be noted that Wales, like England I think, limits group sizes to 30 people for outdoor events. I don't think the original plan would get anywhere near troubling that, but if folk jump on it as a Cholmondleleleley alternative, it may cause issues.

What the heck, theres a  light colored Mark VIII in the background and its not mine! I need infos!

 

I would have loved to join this year but even if the show goes ahead, I'd be on my way back from Europe and would most likely need to go into mandatory quarantine. I might be able to avoid it taking the Eurotunnel but who knows. I'll definitely keep an eye on the thread.

A pal is in Germany at the moment. Seems if you travel from Germany without stopping in France or NL, it's ok. No fuel, no pee stops.

Yeah, thats the case right now, enter a ferry and you will mix with people though, resulting in quarantine. Thats apparently not the case in the Eurotunnel so should you travel by car, thats the only way of entering the UK while avoiding getting stuck at home for two weeks. 

Now Im really curious if they want proof that you didnt exit the car in France/the Netherlands. Theres absolute no way they could tell.

You can even stop and get out if you need to, provided you don't mix with other people.

We're in Germany ourselves (not sure if it's me or someone else you refer to!) so plan to cross Belgium on Saturday and fill up at an automated petrol station. Toilet stops fortunately not a problem as we're in the van!

How anyone would prove adherence to this is a mystery...

My mom brain was struggling for a minute and then pop! I think I remembered. You have an Orange Viva that wouldn't start without a push right.... Or my.mom brain failed? But yes is I!

Where's this October fest thing?

It wasn't you, but I had a feeling I knew more than one person currently abroad. Several it seems! Quite envious.

Yup that's right I had this HC Viva with a 2 litre pinto at the time but it's long gone and yes it did have a dodgy starter and required bump starting occasionally.

I think the October thing is in Wales.

The plan in its previous incarnation was centred around the Denbighshire-Conwy roads, with the option of heading further West. There is a thread charting the plan so far, search for Shitesteddfod,

Or indeed that you came from Germany and weren't in France the whole time.  My understanding is that your word is taken when you enter the UK without question, but that it would obviously be illegal to enter the UK from e.g. France without filling in the online form.  2 weeks quarantine should be easy enough so personally that's our plan for later this week

I came back from Norway last Monday, through Denmark/Germany/Netherlands/Belgium/France. We deliberately camped on the German border for a night before venturing to the channel tunnel, didn't stop in any "bad" countries for a slash/fuel so were exempt from quarantine following the rules on gov website.

Point of this post, though...

Nobody asked where we had been at the border either leaving France or entering the UK (both borders did a fairly comprehensive search of the van, though. Guess I look dodge)
Nobody asked if we were required to quarantine or advised that we might need to
Nobody asked if we had completed the online UK entry form (Missus had, I didn't as I was driving and forgot)

So, who would actually know anyway!

Four cases of southern french wine might be a giveaway I guess?

The guy was very adamant he was looking for people that shouldn't be there

      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......

      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.
