Hi All

The next Romper meet will be going ahead on the second Sunday of the month (as is intended to be the norm) - i.e. Sunday 9th May - at 1230.

We had a great turnout last time but in retrospect I should have planned some kind of drive for us so that we got to listen to and see the cars in motion. Therefore, I'm thinking that it might be worth us meeting somewhere else at 1230 and actually driving to The Romper in convoy, or alternatively going from The Romper to another location in convoy.

We have a couple of weeks to organise this so suggestions would be very welcome.

Cheers.

Lee.

How to find The Romper
Take the M56 to Junction 6 (one stop from the Airport) and join the A537 heading towards Wilmslow. Just over 100 yards on the left is The Romper, accessed by a small lane with a small church on the right of The Romper.

First exam on the 10th, so can't make it I'm afraid.

Will there be one in June as the second Sunday is Le Mans weekend?

I should be back on the road myself by then!

As there was no disclaimer for the last meet I assume you accept all responsibility for, um, messing up my hair by having the roof off your car. The distress caused by having my image temporarily tainted, not to mention the huge repair costs in terms of hairgel, mean I have no choice but to bring this action about.

However, I am willing to settle out of court, please send me a cheque for 1000 and we can put this nasty incident behind us.

Regarding the 'damage' to your image, there's only one way your image could go and it isn't down. Having said that, they say you can't polish a turd so maybe it can't go up either!

Also, if I remember correctly you still practically had a mullet at this month's meet so your hair 'style' could hardly have been any worse for being in my car!

Finally, if things go well you will indirectly be paying me 500 my friend.

Would like to be there too. Are you meeting at this boozer or at another place first? Is Jodrell a nice photo shoot? Are roads suitably smoothe and quiet mid Sunday morning? Or how about starting from Llangollen motor museum, near Horseshoe Pass ...... or sumat

That's a long run though.Nice idea but most people appear to meet have a smallish blatt and then a natter..

Sorry Lee Highjacking your meet..

What we need is a nice country pub that does real lancashire/cheshire grub..that we can blatt to from the romper or indeed a round trip...

Hey no problem Jess, it's not my meet, I need all the help I can get as I don't have much experience of this. I am going to get a map out next weekend and do a dry run of a route to make sure it is suitable. It will of course also be a great opportunity to take the car out.

Please someone tell me, where and what is the Romper?
I'm in North Lancs and I've not heard of it.
Is this meet anywhere near me? Is it open to anyone or is it just a select few on a need to know basis? A search of the forums led me nowhere. I tried typing the Romper into Google . There were 21,000 entries to search so I gave up .

Edited to say I've found it now (searched the wrong forums ) Unfortunately it's over 70 miles away.

Its main advantage is that its situated right by the Manchester Airport tunnels which are great to drive through in your loud car with the top down.

It may be a bit of a way for you, but if you did make the journey you'd be very welcome - a guy turned up last time who wasn't even a member on PH and just spotted the meet while browsing the forums.

Plus, 70 miles in a Chimaera... sounds like a good excuse for a long drive to me.

If you are an M66 North Lancs then give me a shout at the tie and head down the M60 so we can convoy.
