Apologies for the short notice! New job, stag to Portugal etc etc!

The meets last year were good but lets call this one a 'soft opening' for 2018 as I am so late getting this together and it's the bank holiday...

And I also won't be there more than a few minutes before we head to Guildford for lunch with the family!

Previous meet details are here biggrin

3rd Meet: https://www.pistonheads.com/gassing/topic.asp?h=0&...

4th Meet: https://www.pistonheads.com/gassing/topic.asp?h=0&...

The usual details:

All cars are more than welcome to come to The Fairmile Pub in Cobham (close to A3/ M25) on Sunday 6th May for a meet:

The pub is now under new management and still opens at 12pm but they weren't sure about us coming at 11am, as we used to.

Suggest we meet on the grass from 11:30am for a catch up and then see how it goes... I am yet to book future dates.

Would be great to meet some fellow PHers and see a nice variety of cars.

There is loads of parking and we can use the green out the front for parking/ display.

There is also a Shell garage, opposite, so we can all fill up with the good stuff or use the Jet Wash.

Lets get a list going:

1. Dom9 - no Clio V6 because we'll be en route to Guildford

I'll be in the "family car" as the golden potato is sick.

Damn. It’s just up the road from me but I’m at an airshow elsewhere that day.

How do we always run into another meet?

Spread the word and let's see what we can do!

To be fair; originally Saturday wasn't an option as the pub only had one monthly recurring Saturday/ Sunday available to us.

Not so sure that's true now as the diary didn't look so busy (change of management maybe hadn't updated bookings).

We've had some great turnouts though and some fantastic cars. Empirical evidence seems to suggest it's more weather dependant than anything else.

Assume a few will be away for the BH weekend but hopefully we'll get a fair turn out and we can re-think the day and increase the notice next time.

I’ll pop over for a while with the little’un. Think it’ll be the ratty E55 for me this time - I’m on parenting duty and the baby seat doesn’t work with the harnesses in the kit car!

I'll be there in my (broken) A8 and a friend will likely join in his E30 - I'll see if anyone else is game!

Jet wash at the Shell, over the road, if you're as lazy as me!

Make it 11:30am so I can see some folk before we chip off to the fam in Guildford!
