Well girls n boys, Since the first meet went so well its been decided that it needs to be done again :D

We need ideas of numbers though a think all at the last one will be at the nxt one, we need some Southerners at the nxt one and no excuses this time :haha:

Any thoughts of a venue will be appreciated, heres a few....

Falkirk Wheel LINK (http://www.thefalkirkwheel.co.uk/index.asp)

Aberfoyle and the Trossachs

Inveraray Castle LINK (http://www.inveraray-castle.com/Pages/content.asp?PageID=1)

Luss again would be a laugh but dunno if we'd be allowed back lol

Anyway al let yeez all ponder on it and get the ideas in, As for a date the 20th or 27th of August (both Saturdays for travelling reasons for the further travelled) are favourites so far...... What do you think??

I'm a potential. Apart from the trip to Volvo there's nothing else on that month so if you guys can decide on a date I can book a few days off and make a long weekend of it with me family. Somewhere kids friendly would be great :)

If I make it however I want you guys to get down south for at least one meeting ... :D

Frazer,

Although Falkirk would mean no travel for us, my old man and I reckon Inveraray Castle is the man. the drive up the Rest and be thankful is suberb and on the other side of the hill is one of the best straights anywhere (if the road is quiet) on the way to Cairndow.

However, we'll be there wherever you decide to hold it!

Titch & Charlie

(Hopefully I can get the car keys back off my dad by then)

i bumped into ur old man titch did he not tell u i met him in the lounge area of BUBBLES :jaw: in grahams road falkirk and he had a dressing gown on for sum reason not sure what he was up tp though :pants:
i was just dropping off a parcel of course
he did look a bit flushed though ud better make sure hes ok

i falkirk sounds good it means i can goo oot pubbing afterwards then :banana:

count me as long as someones drivin me

Andrew

u know im there fraz whenever wherever just thought id ge tin on the offical thread!!!
inverary castle does sound like the chat from titch's perspective and from the picture potential,
plus if people are travellign from the south - as long as its not too rainy mind- it'd be good for them to see something scottish
as badger said cant understand the problem last time,
they buy the rain off us in bottles no questions hhahahahahha

No probs Guy, thats why its a Saturday this time so Southerners can make a weekend of it if they wanna travel, its a shame Scotlands to far for Southerners and Englands to far for us, We had such a laugh last week, it would be good to get more ppl at this one

need to keep the momentum up and attract some newbies. good to see it in the calender.
how are we all?

Tuesday 19th July 2005, 09:38
Ok people, looks like its just the Scots again apart from Wobbly and Don :wink:

Its a real shame that we cant even tempt some of the main people up for a weekend :slap: This is a Saturday so theres no need for driving there and home again on the same day if thats the problem, Nothing in the calender from now till then or even till 3 weeks after so there aint NO EXCUSES!!!! :haha:

Come on fingers out peepo

Wednesday 20th July 2005, 08:05
Sorry lads was really trying to get there having spoken to Don-t5 and wobbly even looked at the possibility of flying up but it turns out it is the day of my mates babies christening and as we are god parents i really should go.We are hoping for a holiday in scotland next year though so maybe we can get together then.Sorry.

fraz13
Thursday 21st July 2005, 00:33
Went to Inveraray the day seen as ma nice boss gave me a day off :haha:

Had a word with the castle estate office regarding pictures at the castle its self and now waiting for a return call to say yay or nay

The carpark was pretty full for a Wednesday so a can imagine that a Saturday will be busier, there is a small spot that we could probs all fit in but its it a private part where the "family" live so its probs a no no, Failing that we could take individual pics at the castle front door but thats all if we want the castle in the background, supose just need to wait on that call (fingers crossed)

http://img.photobucket.com/albums/v458/fraz13/HPIM1000.jpg

I did on the other hand arrange food, We are welcome in the George Hotel in Inveraray for a pub lunch, I said around 15 bodies give or take a couple, Hope thats OK with everyone

http://img.photobucket.com/albums/v458/fraz13/HPIM1001.jpg

Times are roughly 2-2.30pm for food then possible pics at the castle to let it quieten down a bit, Plenty of places for pics all around the area

That OK?

AHHHHH looks aweosme fraz but ive like triple booked myself

volvo are doing the freedom test drive in edinburgh that weekend and i booked it for the 1st 3 sessions on sat!
then theres the touring cars at knockhill that weekend!
what time is the meet- i gotta make it!

fraz13
Thursday 21st July 2005, 09:57
A think we should all meet up before we go for food, Carpark in Arrochar sounds like mibees a plan as its easy accessable from both North and South, then a wee convoy up the Rest And Be Thankfull to Inveraray

Foods between 2 and 2.30pm so mibees if we could meet up around 1 - 1.30pm Remembering its Saturday 27th August :slap:

Providing thats ok with everyone :wink:

Oh and the George carpark is tiny so we need time to find places to dump the cars haha

Thursday 21st July 2005, 14:25

Thats ace Don glad to hear it, thats what the other southerners should have done aswell, Its the main reason for holding it on a Saturday but theres just been no interest from any of them which is quite disappointing :confused:

Anyway the place were having food is lovely but dunno if its what you wanna spend on a bed >>> CLICK HERE (http://www.thegeorgehotel.co.uk/)

No prices on this one but looks nice >>>> CLICK HERE (http://www.argyll-scotland.demon.co.uk/aboutus.htm)

This is tiny but reasonable >>>> CLICK HERE (http://www.wraywalker.u-net.com/)

the drive up the Rest and be thankful is suberb and on the other side of the hill is one of the best straights anywhere (if the road is quiet) on the way to Cairndo)

if you like the rest.... come north and do the garve to achnasheen, i'm sure the guy why drew the road plan was roman:) if anyone is north i recommend the inver polly and kyle sku roads head for ullapool and go right.

maybe we should have a forum page where ppl can post their favorite drives so if any other members find themselves in that neck of the woods they can give it a go????? just a thought

Secondly course theres always room for as many more that wanna come along :D

Car is a 98 in garnet red pearl with beige leatherwith 17" canisto alloys. Only had the car a couple of months so not done much to it. Put ebc disks and red stuff ceramic pads on it but other than that car is standard. Waiting on a new abs/tracs ecu coming for it this week.

fraz13
Thursday 11th August 2005, 20:32
A hope its not coming from Volvo :eek:

We have our very own ABS/TRACS ECU repairer on this very forum

Give Wobbly Dave a shout, he will fix yours for a fraction (15-20% Approx) of the cost of a new one

He fixed mine a year ago and its never gave me any hastle since, he has a 100% success rate

Oh yes ! I've done the Garve to Achnasheen road too ( Ma mum came from Applecross!) Superb roads all round the north west. Maybe we should try to organise a run to Applecross over the Bealach. That would sort the men from the boys.

Tis true - I was actually mending one tonight - but as the lad has beaten me to it - I guess I shall have to wait for the ebay one to fail (just kiddin'). If you dont want your old one then I will happily buy it off you.

Can't go firm /just/ yet but I will endeavour to join this exodus north.

Unsure if I should bring my own wheels or enjoy a (whiteish knuckle) drive up with Dave. Will check what the bank balance says!

I imagine accomodation will be an issue at this stage too.....Pesky school holidays!!

Sorry to let you all down but since the old volv has decided to break i wont be able to get to the meet, i dont think my corsa van will fit in with the rest o the group, anyway good luck to all the travelers on a safe journey and hope the weather is good for you all and have a great day, ps need plenty pics of smokey tyres to remind me of what i am missin, an incentive to fix my own.
