You couldn't pwn your way out of a wet paper bag, with "PWN ME!!" written on it, from the "pwned take-away" which originally contained one portion of chicken tikka pwnsala and the obligatory free pwnpadom.

Right boys and girls, I've been flirting with this idea for far too long now, so it's about time I got around to organising it.

Provisional date at the moment is XXXXXX July. That's a good few weeks before the school holidays, and suitably after Stoneleigh, Le Mans, etc. I've still got to clear this with the land owner, and that's subject to a reasonable number of people wanting to attend (as he's agreed to charge per head, based on a miminim), so the date is very much provisional at this stage.

EDIT: This date is no longer doable due to the site not being available. New date is 28-29th July. See page 4 for more.

It will be held just outside the village of Weedon, North of Aylesbury on the A413.

http://maps.google.co.uk/maps?q=aylesbury&hl=en&ll=51.851474,-0.817237&spn=0.019882,0.043387&sll=53.800651,-4.064941&sspn=19.54324 6,44.428711&hnear=Aylesbury,+Buckinghamshire,+United+Kingdom&t=h&z=15

I'm working on having a fully catered option to encourage people to come in their kits, ie no need to pack BBQ's, food, etc. Just a tent and a sleeping bag is all you'll need. Also hoping to make it reasonably family friendly for those with kids.

I'd really like a show of hands of people that would be interested... I'll set up a poll shortly for this purpose, but any comments welcome.

Cheers, Chris

Chris, I'd be interested in coming along though this does clash with the Classic Lemans, not sure if this will affect the potential attendance.

I appreciate it's a long way, but be aware that wherever I run the event someone will have to travel.

I also have to consider how many visits I'll need to make to the site, and the value of my contacts and 'local knowledge' in making the event run smoothly.

All things considered, I'm confident that I've chosen the best location for the event. I appreciate it's not ideal for some members, and perhaps we can address this in later years, but at the present time I'm not considering any other locations.

Cheers, Chris

MrsDuck and me would be well up for this, although we'd be coming down in a tintop as the kit wont be road legal.

As we'd be in the tin top happy to provide a 'luggage' service for members in the area who want to bring their kits but cant carry all they need, likely be in the Puma still so although a coupe plenty of space with the seats down to get stuff in.

Hi Chris i know from experiance that organising an event is never easy and an event in the north would have to be organised and run from up here you would be welcome any time up here but trips to organise would be mad just thought your idea was great lots of us would like to meet but bucks would mean about 4 days for some with travel might be nice to start a poll cumbria would catch both the scottish lads and northern boy if anybody is interested post on here these things dont organise themselves good luck Chris .

Surely 4.5 months is plenty of time to arrange a swap??

Sounds gooooooood, just getting a deposit to you could be an issue as I DONT do pay pal. could always send it to you in a plain paper sealed addressed bag.

You don't have to 'do' Paypal to send a payment with it. You only have to sign up if you want receive money. Sending to someone is just a case of telling it you want to do a one-time payment and entering your card details - no registration or anything like that.

Nevertheless, I'll consider taking cheque payments I guess.

Nobody else got a comment to make on this? I thought there would be more enthusiasm!!

A weekend away, cars, beer, camping, a bit of entertainment... what's not to like?

Fantastic news, at last a kit car gathering in the summer. I have never understood why all the kit shows are in the early or late summer when the weather is less likelyto be fine. Lets hope this one is blessed with excellent weather.
