Hi chaps,

I know there are several of you near me (Aylesbury) and I know that I can score many points with the Mrs if I take the boys out for a good chunk of the morning one weekend.

So: anyone keen for a fathers & Porsches meet locally/near drive? I suggest early August one Saturday.

Thanks to HSC911 for the name, it's catchy!

Can one pop along without their son, or perhaps turn up with a daughter, or mother or both Question

Any children welcome - my thoughts were to make this a fathers-only event. Bringing the Mrs along would ruin her chance to go child-free for a few hours, thereby significantly reducing your chances of brownie-point-scoring!
Nothing against mothers, I just know how much my wife would value a morning on her own, and both my boys love cars (engines and wheels especially)

Sounds a fair idea, fairly local and have a 3yr old and a 6yr old what sort of activity were you thinking.

I'm not far away and would love to come but am I excluded because I'm firing blanks? Floor Surely 911uk cannot condone this sort of discrimination.... Sad

Wow there are far more interested folks than I expected!

Does anyone have anywhere they can reccomend that has:

1. playground
2. watering hole / cafe
3. car park that overlooks #1
4. In North Bucks

Wendover Woods has been my go-to but the on-going works apparetly are making it a nightmare and the speedbumps are not chin-spoiler friendly!

I don’t really know spots in North Bucks. I found the following pub between Beaconsfield and Amersham. It appears to be a gathering place for other car meetings. I see it has a big car park, a play area and a good selection of food for a lunch time..

Just enough time to get your engine warmed up Very Happy

I’m happy to meet somewhere further up but don’t have any suggestions.

I found the following but I can’t see a play area, only a canal...

This is a great pub on a summer's evening (its about 5 minutes from me), but unfortunately it isnt that child friendly (the lock itself hasn't got much in the way of guard-rails).....

If MK is a goer, then I would recommend Willen Lake, but that might be a bit far North for people.
