Sunday 28th May: South Meet Anyone?

Calling all "Southern Softies" (for a meet)

I've been away from the Z club for far too long (just over a year I think) due to a crazy set of events I won't bore you with but I have missed you guys and would love to also meet some of the recently joined members and make new friends.

I would like to propose a meet up on Sunday 28th May.

The plan is to start early, stop at different locations along the route to pick up others (not in the least to add more 20w50 to my rare JDM piston ring free engine!), stop for lunch / photos/ oil, drive some country roads, have a pint, add oil and head back.

What you need to tell me:

1. If you are interested
2. where you live (town) so I can plan a considerate-ish route.
3. Any particular requirements you have like strictly no rain, Gluten free etc
4. Any good driving roads / routes
5. Any recommended pubs.

Le route:

Plan to end up in or near Hastings so as to allow for the SE members to also join us if they wish.

Start on the Surrey / Kent border at the Grasshopper Inn on the A25

Drive to Tunbridge Wells pick up others (add more oil)

Drive through the high Wield

Lunch at Battle, photos etc then head back or to the coast depending on mood/commitments.



Another possible option depending on who commits from where or for next time:

Start at Grasshopper, head to Goodwood circuit through Sussex countryside picking up others. Photos at Goodwood with lunch there or local pub and head back. There is a possibility of a parade lap (read slow and quiet) of the circuit but I'm awaiting details.

Interested!?


(Ps. I did try to post this in the Meets forum but it tells me I don't have sufficient privileges)

Excellent Russell. I get to Goodwood quite a few times a year so next time and hopefully when you've plugged your hole, we must meet up.


Mr Toopy: great news!

******!

I would most definitely be up for this if I was available, I'm based in Surrey and regularly go down to Goodwood for various events and am over in to Sussex/Kent frequently on drives with the MR2OC. I've had lunch numerous times in Battle.

The car is also about to go in to have some work done which would count me out for May anyway even if I was available. Are you thinking of making this semi regular? as if so I'll make every effort to get to the next one.

Great idea btw
