Main Meet 2020

Postby donkeyotty » Mon May 27, 2019 6:47 pm

Thinking ahead somewhat I appreciate there is a meeting planned for 2021 at Dunkeld, but I was wondering if anyone has any serious plans in place for a main meet next year ??

Something in the East or South East for a change? Anything Jaguar is always miles away from us down here!

It is not easy pleasing everybody geographically speaking, Dunkeld is a point in case. Maybe someone could take up the challenge for you 8-)
In fact there is no reason we couldn’t have two main meets in a year, one up north and one dawn sawf :D

I know plenty of lovely places around East Anglia. The Boating Lake Cafe in Southwold is welcoming car clubs and an XJ40 meet would be the ideal size for the space they have. Unfortunately, while it's such a beautiful and popular place, and has a brewery (Adnams) and about a dozen pubs in such a small town, being so far East it'd probably not be convenient for most! I'm sure if somebody knows somewhere more central such as Hertfordshire/Buckinghamshire way, that might please more people being quite central!

Coventry/ Warwickshire is very central. One if the reasons there’s been lots of meets round there, plus other obvious reasons/ connections.

I suspect some of our European members might chuckle at this conversation regarding distances!
I also seem to recall some of the JEC meets have members travelling from as far as Russia. In a V12!

If you want to arrange a show with shall we say geographic extremes all you could really hope for would be a local show with a turn out of maybe 3 or 4 cars on the day, further subject to the vagaries of the weather.
Attendance numbers seem to be down recently as well for some reason. I have pre booked 5-10 spaces for a show on the Wirral in August but I cannot see us even making 5, yet a couple of years ago we got 9 cars in February with ice and salt on the roads :o

I think you islanders are whining a bit. These cars are excellent long distance cruisers.
We have appr. 1000 km to Dover, so any UK location is a bit of a journey for us.
Could we do it in the Netherlands next year, then we all (except Pim and a few others) have some distance to go... :D
