Following on from the conversation over on Readers Cars and the surprising amount of interest in a meet up to discuss all things broken on a variety of 996s... I thought it best to start a thread so we can get an idea of just how many are interested in this sort of thing biggrin

I'll propose June'ish but not the weekend of the 10th/11th for obvious reasons!

Lets see how much parking we need and we can work out a venue from there, but to make that easier a rough location would be good.

I'll kick things off:

1: Poppopbangbang - Midlands.

Update!!!!!

Tickets available to buy here: https://www.eventbrite.co.uk/e/caffeinemachine-wee...


The date is: Saturday the 24th June - 9AM - 12PM biggrin

Having spoken to Caffeine and Machine they are happy to accommodate us in "The Yard".

The Yard @ Caffeine&Machine

Come and celebrate all moving things, at our home where all are welcome. Caffeine&Machine exists as a meeting place for anyone who has a fondness for machines, and it doesn’t matter what.

The days at C&M are split into hourly arrival slots and we have plenty of tables for all to enjoy the sites and sounds of the Yard. Entry on Saturday & Sunday can be pre booked with 50% of your ticket redeemable on food and beverage or if we have space in the Yard it is £5 on the door. Please pre book to guarantee your space.

Your ticket gets you access to the Yard within a 15-minute grace period either side the arrival time. So, if your arrival time is 11am, you can access the Yard between 10.45am and 11.15am. This is to give you a buffer for traffic on the way, but we recommend you plan your arrival time carefully.

We will have our online food and drink system firing on all cylinders and the food service times are below:

Breakfast menu – 9am-11.30am

Main menu – 12.30pm-9:30pm

We can’t wait to see you in the Yard.
C&M operate on a ticket basis which can be purchased online here: https://caffeineandmachine.com/yard-tickets/, tickets for the June weekend will be released mid-may and I'll update here once they are available for everyone to book as required.

Looking forward to meeting you all in person!

Amazed by the response to this! I was sure it would be three of us having a beer and discussing oil consumption laugh

I vote we let this thread run until end of the month and then pick a location?

If they are, then I could be interested too.

Somerset, but Midlands just as easy with family in Worcs.

I am based in the Netherlands but will see if I can make it back over. I will keep an eye on dates. Be great to have a chat with fellow owners.
