TVRCC East Mids are having a run to Cosford Air Museum this Sunday morning(SCH 2010 venue).

Not actually my area but it's a nice run from here in Redditch so I'm tagging on. Too late to book onto the reserved parking area but plenty of public parking.

Be nice to see another S or two there smile

I'm possibly interested in this too. Having recently moved to Stourport I am keen to attend my local TVRCC meet which I think will be later this month with the West Mids and Warwickshire lot. However, it looks like a nice run up to Cosford so if the weather is fair (and I can tax my S2 tomorrow - been sorned while away with work) I'll come along.

Hi Mike, had spotted you were tagging along. We'll be there - be great to see more S's.

Even looks like there might be a Vixen turning up!

Should have my MOT retest done today, so if the weather is good, that sounds like a great celebration run to do.

I'm sure they'll make you welcome but wouldn't "Cotswold Three Counties" be your local group?

Hi Mike. May well pop over. If so, will either see you there or if you are meeting up prior to driving over, post the meeting time and place (if the petrol station near you, the post code) and I will let you know if I can make it.
Cheers, Stew.

Hi Stew, with it being such short notice I hadn't planned on making it a "run" but it it would be great to have some company if you (and, more importantly, Jane) can make it !

If you and of course anyone else are interested Sainbury's Redditch B97 6RF (M42, j2 along A441 to second roundabout) aim to leave 8.30 ?

Mike spoke to Stewart at work today and me and Sheri are up for it. Are you likely to be passing Belbroughton A491, if so I could meet you along there.
Cheers Al

Hi Al, my "usual" route is Bromsgrove - Kidderminster - Bridgnorth - Shifnal

How about meet up at the Severn Valley station in Kiddy, about 9 ?

Thanks Mike, I think!

Jane not so keen so more than likely just me I'm afraid. All being well, will see you about half eight. Got your number so if anything changes before then, will text you.

Cheers, Stew.

If your doing the Bromsgrove to Kiddy road, how about I wait in the Murco garage opposite the Fox pub, as you come in to Chaddersly Corbbet, I can just tag on the end as you come past and will save you all having to stop.
Cheers Al

I dont have a sat nav in the TVR but will try good old map reading to find you in the petrol station in the morning Mike.
Just in case of problems dont wait for us but will hopefully get there before 8.30 sounds like it should be a good day! Lookin forward to seeing and hearing some other V6s to compare notes.

Sorry guys, I won't be joining you today despite the convenient 'pick' up at Kiddy services. I couldn't get tax for my car yesterday as the V5 isn't back yet from the address change..... Have a great hoon anyway. Maybe next time.

Grand day out at Cosford.

Nice turn out of S's - was it 7? Thanks to Mike for encouraging folks along.

Sorry I didn't get too talk to everyone - by the time we wandered out of the museum there was only our car and Glenrobbo's Austin. Too much interesting stuff to look at.

Highly recommended for a day out - free admission and just £3.50 for parking.
Gary
p.s. Mike - did you manage to smuggle the stainless plane out in your boot? wink

Great day out, good to meet some new faces.
Sorry we left without saying goodbye to Mike and Johnathon (S2Mike) but we waited until the parking ticket ran out. No doubt we will see you both again.
Cheers, all from the small convoy from Redditch way.
