The BBC weather forecast shows sunny and 19 deg C for Sunday 15th Sept, so if we are to have this Indian summer, then get your names on this list for a run out, it might be the last good weather run we have this year.... Dont know

I've spoken to some of you by phone and subject to who adds to the list I'll put up an appropriate meeting point north or south of the region and then decide on the route, so come on Thomas, Ian G, Ian M, keithJ, Cueball, KP etc, we haven't had a good blast for ages; I'll start;


1. Porschekit - 997.1 C4S
2.

Sorry boys, I'm already booked to be on track at Croft on Sunday (single seater).

Please put some pics up though.

Hope the weather stays good!

Cheers, jkeith.

Apologies John, shouldn't have posted my comments on a public forum.

Enjoy your run out

Is this a case of Porsche Club GB-ism creeping in??

I went out with the north east lads in the early days, Keith (KP), Thomas (Ghengis), Ian (Igaffz) etc. Nice bunch of lads and good runs. I don’t recognise half of the names now and everything I’ve ever seen/heard of PCGB local groups (especially the north east one) does nothing to want to make me join in. Grin

Having said that I’d happily have a cuppa and a chin wag with some of the old lot like Keith (KP) etc.

Have a good run lads. Thumb

Surely by putting this invitation on here, in good time, all interested parties have a chance to join in.

If it's a 911uk group this is the forum for issuing invites. Any additional communication to specific people is down to them and shouldn't be criticised.

Well done to 'Porschekit' for taking the initiative to organise something. thumbsup

Any chance of a meet on Saturday 28th? I'm up in the North East to see my mum for a week and I'm free that day. A long shot but it would be great to meet some of you and put faces to names.

I'm also around Mon-Wed (30th-2nd) but I guess you'll all be working.....

Going to have to say no again folks - do you have access to my diary John - seems you keep picking dates when I'm not available. I'm at the classic car show at Whitley Bay Links that day with the SAAB V4 that day so can't meet up - unless you tie your run in with a visit to Whitley Bay. Its a decent show with both older and more modern "classics" (I think 300+ cars) and a nice location if the weather is OK. Maybe see you there.
Maldren - at the moment I'm around during that weekend/week and can sometimes grab a couple of hours - just PM me if nothing else gets organised when you are up and I will see if I can get away.

Oh, and anyone Porsche related (or any other interesting car for that matter) is always welcome at our place for a site to meet up as a starting point (farm shop) regardless of club, forum, interest group or whatever.

Cheers.....Ian

Hi Mike, we normally have a last run out toward the end of Sept middle of October, last year we went over to Pooley Bridge and had a meal and get together at Grannies Restaurant. The weather was a bit hit and miss but the run back down Teesdale is epic.
Which area are you visiting when your up here?

My daughter is a keen & pretty good photographer (I just tag along and take "pot luck"). Last your she got some good shots of some red squirrel up at Derwent Reservoir, which is where we're heading on Sunday.

Sorry folks, but I have to go down south on family duties. A bummer but I cannot rearrange. Would be up for one at the end of the month though.

Have fun.

Well the British weather has stayed true to form and what was going to be 19 deg and sunny is now going to be 14 deg and rain with a cold front heading south. Don't think I'll wash the car then.....

With that in mind and Johnd not able to make it let's meet at

Lanchester Garden Centre
Bargate Bank,
Lanchester,
Durham DH7 0SS

09.30am for coffee / breakfast should any late-comers want to join;
Not too far for any of us, then we can decide where we are headed. Probably north since the weather is moving south

1. Porschekit - 997.1 C4S
2. Cueball - 996 GT3 Aero
3. KP964 - 964
4. Red Baron -

Graeme I'll txt you about a meet spot for the run over...
