@notveryprettyboy and I are thinking it would be good to have a New Year Meet to blow away the residual alcohol fumes from Christmas and provide another opportunity for a social meet-up, always a good thing :smiley:
In my younger days at Rubery Owen motoring club we used to have a ‘Slithering Santas’ autotest on a skidpan at Boxing Day, fantastic day, soooo much fun

We’ll stick our necks out and say New Year’s Day (that’s the first of January by the way LOL)

So we need a venue. Accepting that travelling for a one day event can be difficult we think it has to be the Cotswolds/Midlands/Derbyshire areas. We are also thinking moors, lakes, rivers, scenic etc. would be a good mix for both the ‘camera ships’ and some FPV fun.

So can you please indicate your interest, availability and suggestions for a venue in some posts below, after seeing the level of interest we’ll move onto organizing the finer details.

Looking forward to it already :smiley: :smiley:

I live in “little Scotland”, New Year’s Day is but a blurry mist, saying no more….:face_with_hand_over_mouth:

Jesting aside, if I can, I will…

@Steviegeek I missed the 2022 meeting :wink:

Durrr I’m an idiot… Thanks for the correction Wayne :laughing: :laughing:

I should be ok :ok_hand:

I should be OK for this again, as long as I don’t have to squeeze through the gap at the cooling towers!

I should be good to attend this :+1:t2:

I’ve not seen many suggestions for locations for a ‘New Year Meet’ so thought I’d try to kick it off with this poll
You can vote for a maximum of three and we’ll see which are the most popular
Poll will close on Christmas Eve at 10:00 or earlier depending on how much Southern Comfort has been consumed :tumbler_glass: :laughing:

Why not earn your very own facilitator badge and organise a meet that is South of the M4? :man_shrugging:t2:

not been a member very long so still trying to work out how things work. Seems like a very harsh reply, it looks like you had put the list together for the poll. Sorry if my observation annoyed you
