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


A fair suggestion Leo!!!!!

I will throw this out there..........might be a bit premature...............2026!!! Full Forum Meet......... South of France........my gaff........free accommodation, bar and pool :D :D :D

Would be nice for me to attend with new car - South East/East would be good for me too :)

South east is one of the suggestions, but it’s SE of France!

A couple of suggestions...

Florian's meet in Jork over the last weekend in April. A few of us are taking our 40s to Europe, the more the merrier

My local JEC branch put on a show in Rickinghall in Suffolk on 17th May

There's the Breakfast Club every month, the September one is at Jaguar Classic which is quite an amazing place

Simply Jaguar at Beaulieu

Any of these sound like contenders?

I’d love a road trip to Europe. Might have to remortgage to pay for fuel and Brexit may change a few rules, if it ever happens

Plenty of shows next year to consider, just hope the weather gives us a break. Think I will womble over to this and see if we can get ‘40 numbers up, they only had 5 last year out of 300 plus Jags. Maybe we can get 20 together in 2020.

There’s a good hotel nearby too, for those travelling from further a field. Maybe with an evening social meet we can attract some European friends over?

I’m not far from this one, we had a good show there last time too. I’m a definite at this point (subject to work and family stuff closer to the time)
