Just a few ideas for things to do as a region next year, activities etc and places to go. Let me know what you think
SPRING PARTS DAY & AUTOJUMBLE
Sunday 09 March 2008
Location: The Connexion Exhibition Centre, Leamington Road, Ryton on
Dunsmore, Coventry, CV8 3FL
Description: A general car parts “jumble sale” (hence Autojumble ) put on by the VBOA. Some ridiculous bargains to be had here, as well as being able to find some ridiculously rare and discontinued parts This is now a "must visit" event with a great social atmosphere as well as the best place to get those parts and other goodies ready for the summer season.
Notes: EDITED - THE PARTS DAY IS OPEN TO THE GENERAL PUBLIC, CONTRARY TO MY ORIGINAL STATEMENT ON IT BEING VBOA ONLY...
Any “Southern Zone” Meet Date
Location: See here:http://www.colchester-zoo.com/index....nfo.directions
Description: Well, whats to say? It’s a zoo. And it’s in Colchester. Yes it will mean a trek for a few people, but fairs fair and it will be the southern zone’s turn to provide the location and I thought this was as good as any. It promises to be a real day out rather than a general get-together, so load up your packed lunch (and your partners & kids I guess!) and come see the animals with us. And see the inhabitants of the Zoo
Notes: Entry to the Zoo (at time of writing) is £13.99 per adult and £7.75 for kids, however there are two ways we can bring that down First up is we can buy e-Tickets, which are £11.33 (Adults) and £6.27 (kids) plus a 60p transaction fee. Alternatively, if we have 15 or more people wanting to go (including kids etc) then I can book a group slot, however I need to know definite numbers no later than 2 weeks before the day. Group prices are £9.99/£5.99 (Adult/Child).
Any “Northern Zone” Meet Date
Location: See here: http://www.courtenaysport.co.uk/inde...ewDoc&docId=14
Description: Well, whats to say? Courtenay are the only Vauxhall-specific tuners in the country, and we are lucky enough to have them on our doorstep. As one of our supporting traders, Courtenay are always putting on group buys and offering discounts, so what about organising a RR day or even just a day up there and give something back to them for their support
Notes: If we want a RR day then I will need ideas of numbers in plenty of time in order to make arrangements and negotiate the price
RWYB DAY @ SANTA POD - JOINT MEET WITH ANOTHER REGION???
Any Meet Date
Location: Santa Pod Raceway
Description: RWYB quarter mile sprint days open to general public at Santa Pod Raceway. We could organise this as a joint meet with one or more other regions
Notes:see http://www.santapod.co.uk/calendar.php for details of the potential dates.
