[size="3"][size="2"]right then folks, i have mapped out peoples locations and tried to be as fair as possible when choosing a location

i have come up with us all meeting at Leicester's Meridan Leisure (LE19 1JZ) about 2 miles from M1 jct 21

the area has a vast car park and many places to eat and have fun such as bowling and Pizza Hut

I think if we all met up and went for a late lunch at Pizza Hut that would be the best idea

i am going to set a provisional date of

Hello all,

I was thinking of trying to help to get a date a location set for a meet for all the midlands area [/size][size="3"][b]and anyone else who wishes to come

[/b]In my opinion the best way to do this is anyone who is interested in coming should post there approval and also the town they live in so that we could come up with a central location so that people are travelling as little as possible



[/size][b][size="4"][size="3"]So please express your interest in here and we will see what happens
[/size]

i'm too lazy/unreliable at the moment :(



i'll deffo show my face wherever it is though :) i'll get kirsty to bring some wipes for your engine again!
Michael P
I'm happy to trundle down to wherever, closer to the midlands is always a bonus but i don't want the southern jessies to miss out!
fordpartsman
Well this is why i want locations so as to arrange it centrally
DanGull
I'm always up for a meet and am in Nuneaton...

Mike's near Stafford - he's just too thick to read things properly ;)
StemmePilot
Count me in, if I'm free on the day I'll be there.
Jack_P
I'll be there if its midlands area, and depending on what shift im on. But yeah count me in!

I don't change... and yes i am in stafford!
fordpartsman
right then, something i forgot to ask is do people want a meet around luch time and go for lunch somewhere or do you all want to meet later on and grab dinner and have a more evening meet
mark t
this time of year, lunch time would be better, later on it'll be getting dark, so no chance to enjoy a line up! :rolleyes:
mikester
would be too dark later in the day so yeah lunch time would be ideal. if we throw in some suggestions you can pull something out of the hat or similar.


mine - there's a pub at a place called bassets pole and they have a sweet menu layout where you pick your main sides and sauces and get free refils on pop all the time your there, oh and a free salad bar that has this awesome crispy bacon. anyway the car park is of adequate size and has an overflow part that no-one ever goes on (mainly cos its so far from the entrance, but would suit us i think). the weekend will be busy so might need booking in a large table..



next suggestion? :)

fordpartsman

[size="6"] Come on people we need you to come[/size]
Flic
Hey, sorry just spotted this! Been a bit rubbish forum-wise at the moment. Unfortunately I've seen this a bit late so I wont be able to attend, the lack of money and distance is a factor :( Sorry chaps. Next time, I promise! If I don't forget... :P
Michael P
Really, really sorry to be a nasty pasty, but i'm going to have to give it a miss :(

I was off sick last weekend and didn't get to do any of my college work, so i've got two weeks worth of work to do this weekend which is crap, i would much rather come to see you guys!

Really sorry, i hate it when people do this so i feel bad!!
GT_Racer
Balls, I've just been told I've got to fly to Germany tomorrow so sadly and regretably my hand is forced on this one.
Will keep my eyes peeled for the next meet-up.

Gutted.

:(
mark t
Are we still on for tomorrow? I need to post something I sold on Ebay on Monday, but he lives in Leicester, so need to see if that's fine for him!
fordpartsman
Well me mikester and inath are still going
DanGull
Sorry folks - didn't realise that I'd been put down for this, I'm unable to attend I'm afraid.
RCJ
Wish i spotted this earlier than "0015" on the day of the meet, otherwise i'd have been there, made plans for snooker now...
Maybe the next one for me, plus simply ford of course!

But even if your Zetec S was dirty and had a flat tyre, wouldn't you park it with 4 others?

fordpartsman
