Hello everyone!

Spring is here meaning longer days and (hopefully!) better weather, so I am pleased to announce the PHEA Calendar 2017!

We have already had a successful Early Spring Run (and New for the year), and Event Notifications are up for both the Rolling Road Day and LowiePete's Detailing Meet
So now is the perfect time for an (almost) full list of Events, which I hope will offer something for everyone.

This year, the firm favourite Events have been joined by a couple of new ones.
You'll notice there is the odd "TBC" Event and Date, which will be filled in once everything is confirmed.

FULL DETAILS for each Event will be posted in good time before that Event is due to occur.

As well as posting information in the East Anglian PistonHeads Forum, I will continuing to send out my Mailing List emails and posting the Events on our Facebook Page, too.
If there is something you like the look of now, then you can of course let me know earlier by posting in this thread or by contacting me via my profile/email.

Facebook Note:
If you prefer to sign up to an Event on our Facebook Page, I would please ask you to post a comment on that Event's Page or Message Me to confirm you'd like to attend that Event with us.
Some people like to post across the different platforms, which is absolutely fine.
If you only click the button to say you are "Going" or "Interested", I am sorry to say I cannot include you in my attendee list until you have contacted me or posted on the Event Page.
This makes planning the Events much easier! Thank you.

While this may be the current 2017 Calendar of Events, if you know of anything which may be of interest to PHEA Members, please don't hesitate to contact me smile

While all vehicles are welcome to Meets, Visits & Runs, I am often asked by PHEA members if their car is "suitable" for a Show.

PistonHeads East Anglia is all about the variety of cars and their owners. Anything fast, rare, expensive, classic or unusual is always welcome.
If you are unsure, I would simply ask yourself if you would be happy to see your car as a paying member of the public smile
If you are still unsure, I can always check with the Show organiser thumbup

Finally, if you have an email address amendment for my PHEA Mailing List, then please get in touch; should that be removal of an old address, informing me of a new one, or if you would like to be added to the Mailing List.

I think that about covers it for now.
I'll update the "TBC" entries as and when I have the confirmation smile

I hope to see you all at one of our Events during the year.

Darren

Afternoon all!

Further to my above Calendar, I can also announce this year's mid-week Meets, called Social Summer Meets, or SSM. These will take place during an MSV evening track session at Snetterton Circuit in Norfolk - MAP LINK HERE.
The SSM will be held one week day evening per month from April until September.

It will be an excuse to get out on a lovely summer evening to join your fellow PHer for a good catch up, watch the track action and perhaps get on track too. Booking for track time will have to be done in advance through MSV's own website. CLICK HERE for their 2017 Car Trackday Calendar.
Our very own Fasteddys is helping organise these Events, and he has worked hard to hopefully set up a group booking for track time at a discounted rate. More details of this become available upon each meet's forum post.

THE DETAILS:
Each Meet will begin around 4:30pm and end at about 8-8:30pm, as the track time ends.
The area in which we will Meet may change from month to month, so when you arrive, just look out for fasteddy's big white truck with red "Fast Eddy" logos on the side, or a car with "GEE" on the registration smile

Entry to spectate at the circuit is FREE, but obviously track time will incur costs.
Track time is also subject to usual track day necessities: long leg & sleeve clothing, helmets, signing on, safety briefing and noise testing. Signing on is from 3:30pm, briefing is at 4:30pm.

You are free to arrive and leave whenever you wish, but please adhere to the site speed limits and watch for pedestrians and other cars' movements.

Tyrells Cafe will be open for business.


The Dates:
Wednesday 26th April
Wednesday 17th May
Tuesday 20th June
Monday 10th July (Immediately after the PHEA Snetterton Track Day)
Wednesday 16th August
Tuesday 12th September

As ever, I will post a fresh Event Thread nearer the time.
If you don't wish to wait until my official posting, you can always inform me sooner if you'd like to come along!

These evening Meets proved very popular last year, so I hope you can join us for them in 2017 thumbup
From here on in, I will abbreviate Social Summer Meet to "SSM".

We look forward to seeing you.

Darren

EDIT: September Date Added smile

Hello Darren,

Looks like a full calendar thumbup

I'll be joining "the other lot" to give more spaces for the Duxford Show.
Bromley Pageant is on 10th June, so can't make Sheringham.
Can I book a space at Cars on the Green, Kimbolton and Helmingham please.
I've booked early so maybe you won't forget me wink

Will try to make a few of the SSMs, but the ACL meets in Thurton are
more local...

Regards,
Steve

It is part of the MSV open pitlane trackday that day.
The plan is, as has happened for our past Track Events, to get a couple of lovely perks thrown in for our group thumbup
