Well thats what she seems to eat most of the time - a collection of side dishes that is.

Oops - just been posting on the earlier thread.

The missus and I are in, but not for grub, as we need to get off down to Fernies after the drive.

I will contact a few other TVR owners I know.

By the way, I see someone mentioned that the participants are "mainly Tivs". Does this mean it's open to other cars, because I know Lotus, Porsche and TT owners who might be interested

This is a PHers Drive then Pie. All marques are welcome but it will be mainly Tivs because Pistonheaders are mainly Tiv owners.

I'm half Tiv and half Porsche myself and may bring 'em both. Lotus, Porsche and anyone's *interesting* P+J are welcome as far as I'm concerned. Not to be elitist but we want the photos to look good!

MG: Classic British sports car: most welcome. You didn't mean a Montego did you?

You know what I mean. No offence to anyone. At all. B***y hell.

whatever

BTW, The Gamekeepers is a great pub. Found it quite by accident a couple of months ago and had a very pleasant lunch there. Returned a week later for Sunday lunch, which was also very nice.

They have Tanglefoot on draught, which is nice if someone else is driving.



Agree, Gamekeepers is very good pub/restaurant. My Tiv graced their carpark August last year as the missus & I had our anniversary dinner there. Took a cab home and collected the car in the morning (too much Tanglefoot)! Wouldn't leave it overnight in any other pub carpark, but the Gamekeepers is somewhat off the beaten track.

I live in Fleet & would like to meet with Basingstoke PHers, but won't know until after the weekend whether possible to attend.

Let's hope next weekend is a nice as this one is scheduled to be! I'll update Sean at the Gamekeepers with numbers who will be eating/car parking places required after this weekend. If we're roughly right it'll be fine, I'm sure.

Will anyone need directions or help to get to the start point? Contact me if so. I'm away this w/e but will be back Monday and will reply to any e-mails then.

I'll try and photocopy some directions/address/phone numbers of the pub for the day in case anyone gets lost.

Otherwise I'll look forward to seeing you all at the Spruce Goose/Travel Inn car park. I still think the one at the front although smaller will be better for people to find. The schedule is at the beginning of this thread.

Hi Don,

Thanks for organising all this, I would like to say I will be there, along with my Chim, assuming of course that I get it back by next weekend (It's only MOT and service so I should be OK).

So add me to the list, and I will see you there!

Mark.

Sorry to hear that mr_tony! Hey...I saw a fantastic MG V8 last Sunday. Bloke in it and I (in Chimaera) were grinning furiously as we travelled in convoy down the A34. Boy could it shift too...

Right everyone. I currently think that there will be about 20 cars and a few more people there. 14 or so people will be eating. If you are unsure if I have counted you properly get in touch.

Sean will reserve some tables for those who want to eat so we can sit together. Logistics - wise everyone will settle their own account, of course: Sean is aware.

I'm told that to get all the cars in a photograph - which we can take from his ROOF we will need to double park. Apparently Sean normally goes out to direct cars in as we start to arrive.

Food wise there will be Sunday Roasts (choice of three!), a Fish option and a Vegetarian option so all diets should be catered for. Apparently Baguettes and so forth will be available for those who want something lighter. I intend to call Sean prior to our drive with final numbers for a sit-down Sunday Lunch - as long as I am not too far out it should be fine....

I will bring along some copies of the map and telephone numbers as I mentioned before.

I am really looking forward to meeting you all - lets make the inaugural Basingstoke Pistonheads Pie and Drive a success.
