evening meet once a month

Post  lemski on Tue May 17, 2011 7:01 am

i've been thinking about this and it seems that we dont try and meet at different places anymore, over on bomber county minis, they have a meet at a garage to sort each others cars out etc.


willingham woods seems to be where we always meet now and i would like to meet somewhere else sometimes for an evening meet, obvously not everyone will want to turn up but please put your thoughts on this thread.

It seems like a great idea of having an evening meet once in a blue moon now the weathers getting better and the nights are getting lighter - where would you propose an evening meet to be held? Its just the problem of finding an evening that most people would be free for, id be up for one though Smile

Sounds good to me! Smile it can only be a good thing

im expecting we meet once a month because otherwise it would become a bit samesey and boring, but i cant get enough of meeting up with like-minded people and checking out some cars, getting advice etc

ESPECIALLY at a garage! Very Happy

im all for it guys, location could be an issue as it seems thats theres a bit of space between us lincoln lot and you grimsby and louth lot..

yers its always going to be hard finding an equal place but it could be worked so that 1 month its closer to louth/grimsby then the next more lincoln way on to keep it fair

just a thaught

i like the willy woods location even though i havent been yet, will be at the one sunday after this now as work rota different to what i thought, can do an evening one if its not too far , i dont want to be traveling for over an hour to have to drive another hour after chatting etc, so if one gets organised louth/ horncastle / alford way id do a evening visit, but i dont think ill be travelling to grimsby or lincoln, unless it fell on one of my days at work in which case id knock about round lincoln and goto meet etc then drive home Smile

well i just put the selection out there, i dont really care where to meet on an evening, even if it was only for a drive through some backroads, try not to kill our selves and then have a chat at a random pub we all stop at and drive on home, at the moments the meets are a couple of hours then maybe a few people will chat for a few more hours. then we go home. at least if we went for a county lane drive its driving to a nice location to then talk and have some sensible fun on the way.


i'm open to ideas

Think this could be a good idea however like others have said about location as some people wouldnt really want to travel but i am willing for this. Just to let you all know as well that my work would be willing to have a meet there as long as it wasnt too late, also my work have just purchased a rolling road and should be having it installed next month sometime so i have spoke to my boss who said that he is willing to let us have a evening meet there for a bomber county dubs rolling road meet. Would this intrest peeps???? It would be cheap to take it on and you would get lots of runs and be able to fine tune whilst there to help improve your bhp. Very Happy

Thats sounds AMAZING Kai! well involved with that. and theres enough of us in each area to just convoy to anywhere that the meets are, so im sure there would usually be plenty of people involved in these more frequent meets! i for one as soon as my cars sorted Very Happy

i would be very interested to see how far my car has strayed from its 125bhp clown

rollin roadin is always good , dont mind a blast out but depends on the distance etc, i work, i have a wife , 3 kids , two dogs and bills , so spare cash is always resticted for things like this, if i earned what i do know ans still lived at home with my mum just paying lodge money then yes id probably be at any / everything going... lol..., but real life is expensive!! let alone taking into account unrealiable vw's and fuel!! but what i can get to i will try too!!

I work shifts, so wouldn't always be able to turn up, but if the general populas seems to be Lincoln/Grimsby/Louth... May I suggest Brandy Warf? It's pretty central to everyone, and obviously DO NOT condone Drink Driving, a Pint of Cider on a nice sunny evening, does it get any better? Wink

Us clever mini owners, meeting twice a week!!! Plus we do lots of runs out for walks, or meals or ice cream, to the countryside, or to the coast etc, always going the scenic, awesome mini roads route Smile
And the garage is very handy indeed Smile Our 'founder steve' is a legend Smile

Also, some mini clubs have separate meets say for louth members, lincoln members and skeggy members each week, then once a month a whole day all member meet, maybe a good idea for you guys ??

More regular meet sound good to me.

Not everyone can meet on that one day per month..!
I have only been to one meet ever because of this reason.
my car should be on the road soon though so it will be more easy to attend! Smile
