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.
Not sure which page to put this on...
My stepmum runs a dementia charity, Dementia Support South Lincs.
To raise money there's an annual car rally, it's a pleasant canter around South Lincs lanes followed by tea & cake. £30/car.
Fun, very informal and no beardy concours inspectors. All shite welcomed. You'll get to meet me and my Puma, and possibly @Cluffy's Corrado if he ever fixes it.
Kick-off is 1pm in a tiny village called Aslackby about 15mins north of Bourne.
If you just want to come and eyeball the cars it's £7.50 for the tea & cake and they'll be back at base for 4pm.
Let's paint the village beige!
I will send the charmingly old-person Word Document application form to anyone who wants it via email.
Quick poll to see who is available when.
Happy to update the polls with any suggestions!
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!

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.
The ON THE DAY PRICE will be £5.00 PER CLASSIC VEHICLE.
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?
