Possible Monthly Wales meets

Postby Sir-Doris on Sun May 17, 2009 11:30 pm

Right then, I have been thinking about this for a while and on the drive up to the Midlands meet Roo mentioned it to me as well so I thought I would gauge interest.

If there is enough interest I was thinking of setting up monthly Wales meets.
Unfortunately the only hiccup I can see so far is that all the Wales members are spread pretty thin across Wales so finding a suitably central location for everyone may be difficult. As anyone who has driven through Wales will know even a 50 mile journey can take up to 2 hours.

Obviously like other monthly meets (particularly Midlands Meets) the location will be shifted around every month to give everyone a chance to have something near to them.

Idea and opinions please.

:D :D :D

I'd travel to the meets that were arranged for the North Wales area. As you say Phil the south Wales meets maybe a bit far for me to travel though.

Personally I wouldn't like to travel further than just the other side of Aberystwyth :D If the meet was in South Wales :D

Hope no one will be offended by that :oops:

Phil I wasn't going to go into why :oops: .... but seeing as you have said that... The reason why I don't wish to travel down to South Wales is that when I was learning to drive I had a crash down there and its kind of put me off, I have never driven past Aber since..
And I am not stopping anyone who want's a meet down in South Wales, but all I am saying is that I wont be driving down there :D

OI Roo... Didnt mean to sound sarcastic, I didnt know you had an accident down there. I thought you meant that you didnt want to travel any further then Aber.

Of course, we could hold all the meets south of Aber so Roo doesnt come ;-)

You had a crash in South Wales.... not nice. .... i had a crash in Bristol just after i learnt to drive, not that it's stopped me going there.... whats stopped me going there is its a badly designed tip :lol:

Anyhow, once my oil leak is cured (Phil) and i have a new green slip i'd be up for a meeting anywhere, although i would reserve the right to bring an ordinary car, better fuel consumption.

Dan, don't see why South Wales would be a problem, you'll get around easier, we have one of those motorway things the northerners haven't cottoned onto yet :wink:

There is nice scenery :D I would be up for meets :dance: I would have liked to come to the midlands meet, but it's a long time to leave Harvey when it's one of my days off, so gave it amiss this time, which was a shame, but if the meets are nearer, i can bring him :D :roll:

is there any meets going on in Wales. Gives us newbies a chance to meet some of the regulars. Was hoping for Bala but finances say otherwise. :cry:

To be honest after sending out a few PM's and wotnots to various Welsh members it was deemed a little infeasible due to the relatively large distances and travel time.

To go from south to north Wales is 2+ hrs easy and even relatively short distances take some time to cover, many couldnt justify the time involved and there werent enough members in wales to make a meet worthwhile unfortunately.

I would be up for something. As you say location is the problem. I live rurally and your right when you say a 50 mile run can become a full day out. especially now toward caravan season lol.
