Title: we should organise a meet.
Post by: modulater on 15 August 2003, 04:26
I went recently to a no rice.com meet in guildford and was suprised at how many golfs turned up and how good the people were, everyone was on top form and the quality of cars was excellent.

I've noticed that a lot of the people on here live in the surrey region so was thinking we should have a get together.

sorry if someone has already suggested it but great minds think a like.

We do try and meet up at the shows i.e Whitenoise this weekend.

I guess you mean something a little more regular?

Could be tricky, I think we are all quite spread out, but then as you say, there are a few of us in the surrey region so maybe we could  try and get organized at the no-rice meets. All it would take is to exchange a few mobile numbers and text/call each other to tie up..........that how we manage it at the shows.

Maybe the Ace cafe meet would be better for you. I don't think its too far from us either judging by the latest Ace cafe post.

You guys think you're spread out, I'm on the Isle of Man, but it's not all bad, I get to blast around the TT circuit every weekend which is kind of like having you own race track and of course we have no national speed limit, just last sunday I was doing  120 accross the mountain part of the circuit. Maybe you guys would like a trip over here, I know that one of the Subaru clubs come over and the Police close the mountain road for a few hours to allow them to race across safely.

That would be a laugh. We just need someone with a minibus to take us all home when the isle of man is littered with crumpled VW's

Southern meet sounds good - if I can pitch my tent in a garden, turn your hi-fi up to "11", rumage through your spare parts in the garage and block your toilet,  wouldn't be the same otherwise  ;)

Hi gang,

Thought I'd revisit this thread, Formeressexgirl, if you're willing to organise a meet then go for it. Just an idea I thought about, but how about make a weekend of it and stay at Butlin's somewhere, cheap as chips those places out of season. Meet fri pm, few beers. Sat lunch time, get up, admire each others cars then run back into the pub to warm up and have more beer. Just a thought...
