Reminder that it is the monthly Fairmile meet this Wednesday

If you haven’t been, it’s a really chilled evening , always a good turnout especially if it’s decent weather.

Weather forecast is currently showing 27c and dry for the day. Cool

Advice .. if you want food, order early Grin

Haven’t been for a long time, is the service still slooooooow?

Last time I was there with kids and their food hadn’t arrived after just short of an hour. I thought I’d send up my 7 year old at the time, builds up their confidence and all that. She wandered up and politely said to the lady “excuse me, but my food hasn’t arrived and I ordered an hour ago...”

The lady’s reply to my 7 year old “you’ll have to go and speak the manager” Surprised Surprised Surprised

Anyhow, if I get back from work on time I’m planning on coming along and saying hello. It’ll be the GTS’ first outing! Thumb

I'll actually be making my first trip to Fairmile of 2018 .... as long as the car starts. It was garaged straight after Beaulieu.

EDIT: Surprised I've just realised I didn't clean it before or after that day. Embarassed

Likewise Graham! Thumb

Seeing as it’s Porsche related... I’ll try to do a mini ‘build thread’ of the ‘New Aluminium Silver’ Lotus S1 to ‘Porsche GT3 RS Lizard Green’ transformation!

Hey!

I've never been to one of these before, but live reasonably close. How does it tend to work? Do people go inside to eat, or loiter and mingle around the cars holding drinks, etc? Also what sort of time do people tend to leave?

Cheers

All of the above Grin

People start to drift away at about 8.30, others stay still it gets dark.

Pop along and see for yourself. It's a friendly 'do'.

Tbh if you don't know anyone then it can be like turning up in a carpark and waiting for someone to talk to you. A bit cliquey. I got there about 5;45 and left at 6:20 with no interaction. Not a criticism just an observation.
