Hi all,

I wonder if there is an appetite to get together for a pre xmas meet?

Nothing ultra formal, anything from a mince pie to a turkey pub lunch. At this time of year perhaps a mid-week date would work better?

It should all be weather dependant but what about trying lunchtime on the 5th December?

Location dependant on who is available so to be decided later.

Please add your name if interested.

Cheers, Keith

Their website looks good Mick. Unless anyone has a better suggestion it looks fairly central from all directions.

Good shout, thanks.

Cheers, Keith.

We met there a while back. Good grub and location, but may need radar if weather is poor!

See you there 12:30?

The weather forecast (so far) is good for that day.

The timing would be better a bit earlier John, if that is possible. It's about an hour back into town and some of us need to be back by 15.00. Allowing for school traffic, I would like to leave before 14.00. So, my suggestion is to be there at 11.00 to 11.30. Not a problem if you arrive a bit later though, you won't lose any marks, no teachers watching, all very relaxed, come and go as you please.

Cheers Keith,

1. jkeith.... certainly a 3 Series BMW very old (like me)
2. Porschekit....probably a 3 Series BMW
3. Johnd52...someone has to provide the token Porsche
4. Eastern...might get the bus!
5. Satch.... Cayman S
6. Mickc.... Boxster

That'll be 'Brunch' then! We always indulge in an all day breakfast anyway so looking forward to it, although I may be late myself.
Spoke to Mo the other night and he said he may be down work permitting.

It'll be great to see you if you can make it Paul. Without a disabled sticker you might find difficulty parking at the door. You could always have your driver drop you there though.

CheeRS, Keith.

Hi it's on the A 68 at Toft Hill, bit of a long way to come for a run out but if the weathers good why not. Come off the A1 at jct 58 then it's about 10 miles up the A 68.
