    I don't have contacts at Gaydon any more times move on. I would like to suggest an early July date, weather should be ok then (Or not) and it's before the schools break up.

    Is anyone willing to take on the organisation? This is usuall where previous experience helps a great deal.

    We did if I remember rightly get a concession on the entry fee when a group is booked.

    That is correct. They have a member of staff who specialises in Car club meets, and when I arranged it at a time I lived fairly locally, they arranged a reduced entry price and a special parking area.

    Traditionaly we meet at Gaydon around Xmas ( one year there was an excellent xmas menu in the restaurant) and stayed over at the Holt. I think thats a good time of year to meet and there is a covered venue in the Museum for inclement weather!

    Also we have at least 2 other venues for a GTG in the summer, plus Duxford in the autumn, so the Holt at Xmas allows a good spread of GTGs throughout the year

    But we've never been able to picnic on the grass, in the sun, which would be nice.

    Oh:shock: sitting in the sun, that was a long time ago and sounds like a dream, if only:(:(:D

    It is a wonderful drive for us in the spring or summer on the 350/429 Lilian knows the Holt now so good for her

    Having been to two previous meets here, it would be nice to have a meet here without snow/ice on the ground.
    I for one would be up for a meet here again.
