This should be my 1000 post on this site and I am determined that it will result in a meet.

We seem to be keen but then nothing happens and we are put to shame by our Northern contingent. Firstly I want to see who is interested and where they are based. Can you state your name, where you are, and whether you want a Saturday or a Sunday. Then put which dates you would prefer and if there are any you really cannot. I will go with the majority vote.

The rules of attendance: You have to like Mk1 MR2's, you do not have to currently own one. You could even attend in a Mk2.

I can do the following dates:

Sunday 16th June
Saturday 22nd June
Sunday 23rd June
Saturday 6th July


List
1. Kate , Hertford, Can do any of the above.



Please someone else add to the list so I do not look like a saddo on my own. Can we post in some other local fora? The South East and the East Anglia?

I'm in Oxon which is relatively close. Most of those dates should be OK for me but I can confirm closer to the time. A meet in in Herts or Bucks would be ideal.

Same - OXON here. I can do 6th July, but all those other dates are when I'm in Le Mans :(

1. Kate , Hertford, Can do any of the above.
2. Se7en , OXIN, Can do any of the above
3. Ben , OXON, Can do 6th July only....


I won't be offended if you want to organise for one of the dates I can't do ;)

I can also do the 6th July. I live near Stansted airport and as I will be bringing my Spit, I can probably only attend if its reasonably local ;-).
Don't take me into account when organising though. I will make it if I can wherever it is. Cheers

Hi Balesey.
This meet was being organised for July last year but didn't happen.
We should try for another one in this area though!

I would go for a drink (soft one ...) one of these weekends with the 2 .... it would be nice....

Parking should be ok but it can be busy.
Perhaps we should think of a short route to drive and base the meeting place around that?

It's down to people's schedules etc

I used to attend a monthly on IMOC but it was mostly MK2 drivers who are very ignorant and not interested at all in the MK1.

I can do the 3rd, 14th, 17th & 19 June.

I'm in Wickford which is a lot better than where I was before.

Chys,

Kate isn't active on here any more I think but I will alert her via our Facebook link to take a look at this. Reckon this may be too far for me as I'm down in Surrey and often now bit tied up at weekends with my new paintless dent removal practising.

Bit of a trek for me this, and I'm due to move house at some undisclosed point in the next few weeks, but if it happens on a weekend I'm free I may wander over :)

Slight change of location, but has the club ever done a meet at the Ace Cafe London, notice that the MR2 Drivers Club have a meet planned there for next month and I've always wanted to go.

I notice looking at their website their diary it looks pretty full this year.

Not sure who you contact but it is very controlled. Went last year and they only let in agreed cars, no other Marques, with security, directed parking, etc.

BTW Kate advises she no longer uses this Forum but might be interested in meeting up depending on circumstances.

Thanks Andy.
It would be good if Kate could come as she used to be very active here.

Thanks Andy,

might be a good idea to plan ahead for 2015 and organise a proper club meet there next year. Do the committee members do that or can us mere mortals organise official meets?

Perhaps we should do a mini meet as suggested before in a central location, need something in the SE for 2014 as most of the events seem to be 'up north'

"7th June Saturday, Ace Cafe London. (0)
Between 18.00 – 23.00pm. This meeting is open to all MR2 Clubs so there should be plenty coming along."

Well as long as it's not raining cats and dogs or there are a plague of locusts or my wife has something else planned for me that weekend I will go, I hope!

Anybody else?

I plan to go to Ace Cafe this year. It's exclusive to MR2's that evening so should be good atmosphere.

I would go to this but its a bit soon for me , maybe organise an official meet for next year?

When you say all events and meets seem to be "up North", Is there Anybody other than myself in the SW? Feel like I'm holding up the fort over here...:(

Seems the Spitfire was produced between 62 and 80 so could fall into either Classic or Modern Classic :confused:

I am having issues with oil pressure so until i check my bearings, oil pump and strainer i'm out completely i'm afraid :(

My daily driver is also f*cked with it's thrust bearing gone, so I can't even meet up in my other car :(

There is a show on at Lancaster Toyota in Colchester where they are inviting people to bring along their classics and there is even a mk1 on the poster my mate sent me. Might want to google it ;)

Sorry to hear your Mk1 has problems superwhite90 and you wont be going to Hat Fest this year.

I'm struggling to find information on the show at Toyo Colchester :confused: Can you post a copy of the poster . . .

Morning All,

It's high-time we tried to set something up in this area as it's been far too long! A few counties so hopefully some cars left and willing to be shown off, anyone up for it?

I'm in Cambridge but can get to places easily enough.
