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.
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?

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!
