Will there be a GTG at Gaydon next year (2013)?
This used to be tied in with the Holt hotel meet and Christmas dinner meet.
Malcolm, i know I'm getting on a bit now, but I had it in my mind that it was in September. Funny thing the mind.
You are not alone in getting old, but on 3 occasions it was Winter with ice on the screen,,,but another meet is always good
I'm also in for the next Gaydon meetup.
Its an excellent venue.
I'm In as well
Then all we need is a date we have the place or venue
We would stay at the Holt again
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 sitting in the sun, that was a long time ago and sounds like a dream, if only
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.
In principle I am too
If we choose a nice sunny day , easy to predict I know , when I can get the roof down then I am in for it...
And if I still have my roof rattle I can have one of you experts check it out !
whats the Gaydon place about then ? never been so no idea
as long as it dont clash with the Inn ...and were not working always up for a little drive
Xmas gtg Paul??????
Gaydon is where we used to have the day on the Saturday,Then back to the holt that afternoon......
i never look at road signs cole:Oops:
