    any southend way meets

    hi guys new to the club so be gentle!! lol

    just wondering if there are any localish meets near me. closest place to me which you will probably know is Southend.

    dont really do shows etc anymore, done all that when i had my scoobies, but do like monthly local meets.

    cheers

    Keep an eye out in regional forums!

    Technically Southend is in EA seeing as its Essex, but am sure we could let South East use it for the day

    In all seriousness, keep an eye out for info, if nothing happens I might organise a Southend meet in the warmer months - sea side meets in this weather aren't the best of ideas!

    ok, thanks for the heads up. winter months are best for southend meets, no worries about parking.

    we were down there first weekend of the month, 12 months of the year with the subarus....was freezing at times though!!! lol

    cheers again will keep my eyes peeled.

    I don't really know why you keep insisting that Southend is part of East Anglia. As long as I've been on AOC Southend has been a meet run by the SE Region so perhaps its a case of us allowing EA to borrow it from time to time. Or maybe we'll even go as far as to share it since its right on the borders between the regions.

    Generally our regional meets are run on the last Sunday of every month at Westerham in Kent. We tend to keep Southend for the warmer months of the year but keep your eyes peeled.

    no worries, i actually live about 20mins from southend so only really go there now when on a car meet, but will be more than happy to help if you want to organise anything this way.

    cheers

    have seen meets both in SE and EA regions and i seem to be stuck in the middle of both directions!! lol

    was quite happy to travel, but now with the missus and an 18month old, tend not to travel to far to car meets!

    Ok, my bad, sorry assumed the fact Southend is in Essex and Essex is EA that it was EA ... I'm waffling now ... will shut up and go back to my corner!

    Sorry didn't mean to come across as harsh. We've always counted the lower part of Essex as South East really is all.

    Perhaps we should set up some joint meets in the future and make the most of both regions covering the area.
