Hi all
Have any of you S owners been to the Surrey TVRCC meet that's held on the 4th Thursday of every Month?
www.tvr-car-club.co.uk/regions/uk-seengland.asp#
Click on Surrey for address.

I'm not a member but as it's sort of local to me I was considering turning up this Thursday a wondered if any of you in the Surrey area would be there.

Yes - I was the only S there, amongst all the Tuscans and Chims. Would be good to have another S along to be honest as 1 in about 30 cars isn't well represented. Pete

My S2 is a little rough around the edges but saying that has been reliable... so far.
As it's 10 mile or so from me I will pop in and take a look.
Looks like the weather should be ok for the evening; it took a long time for the car to dry out after the terrible weather driving too and from Chatsworth.

I've never been to this meet though I am a TVRCC member and this is just up the road from me. Is it worth going to?

It was my first attendance last month, so not 100% sure whether it was a good turn out or not. People seemed friendly enough and about 20 - 25 cars there. TVR mag certainly suggests they are active. I will likely give it another appearance on Thursday. Pete

I shall drive down about 8.00pm and have a look.
My Girlfriend and I had a nice meal there last month one sunny evening on our way back from a day out.
Apart from the posh grub would you know if a burger and chips is an option?

Any way perhaps see you there.

Hi,

Just spotted this thread and thought I'd leave a note. The Black Swan in Ockham is a lovely meeting place with a good size car park and plenty of inside and outside seating (to enjoy the sunny evenings). I have requested that the pub provide us with a "TVR menu" which has burger and chips, cod and chips, sausage and mash and a few other favourites at a lower price than the rest of the menu. We are a busy region with a packed calendar of events We encourage everyone to get involved with as much or as little as they feel. We do have a wide range of TVRs turning up from an beautiful classics such as an original racing Griffith right the way through to a Typhon. As we meet on a week night there is no problem with arriving late, some people who work or have to travel don't arrive until 8.45 but we're there until the pub closes as there is always lots to chat about.

As The Black Swan is a public house everyone is welcome to turn up, have a drink and meet the gang. Please introduce yourself to me or one of the TVR crowd as you can imagine that in a busy pub (with members of the public in it as well) I can't ask every single person if they have a TVR or not.

Fingers crossed for fine weather.

See you there! driving

Deeman, I couldn't be there last month as I was visiting a relative in hospital. Steve and I will be around tomorrow.
