Local get-together!

Hi Guys - I have been chatting with garyT, and we both think its time to organise a local ‘social’ so here’s the plan… If you live in Berkshire, Hampshire, or Surrey and fancy a chat and possibly a pub visit for some nosh (depending upon numbers!) - we are thinking of meeting up on Sunday the 17th of Feb. We would like to get an idea of anybody else that would be interested, so if you fancy it - can you either post a reply here or e-mail me/gary directly and let us know… Cheers! BTW - my email is in my profile [image]http://www.exiges.com/ubb/NonCGI/images/icons/smile.gif[/image]

Yep, I’m up for that.Ian [image]http://www.exiges.com/ubb/NonCGI/images/icons/smile.gif[/image]

Sorry,I can’t make the 17th. Busy from about 05:00 through to 19:00. Maybe next time though…Regards,Roy

Currently looking good!I’ll post a link to this on Exige Talk as well, as I’m not sure everybody looks here.[This message has been edited by IDG (edited 28 January 2002).]

Let me know where and when and i may turn up, Be nice to see you guys even if my buss is the odd one out.Kee [image]http://www.exiges.com/ubb/NonCGI/images/icons/smile.gif[/image]

Hi Guys - FYI, I haven’t forgotten but im going to leave it another week or so before finally suggesting meeting place and times - we may just be able to meet at a pub or nearby carpark depending upon numbers…Steve

What about the Goodwood idea?

Hi Keenan - I must have missed something I think - what’s happening at Goodwood? I was really just thinking along the lines of a few of us ‘yocals’ getting together for a chat and a drink? BTW - I was going to suggest meeting at a pub on the A30 - the only problem is that I can’t rememeber the name of it. It is on the righthandside if you were coming from Blackwater, just after the dual carriageway turns into single carriageway. If you keep going, Blackbushe airport is on the righthand side. Can anyone help me remember or do I have to go and have a look?! BTW - timewise, I would suggest about 1pm?Cheers - Steve

RE Goodwood Nothing going on there that day but it is easy to find, just thought it was a good place to start, lots of parking and its secure. However the cafe’ may not be open thinking about it so the pub with no name may be favourite.Keep me postedKee [image]http://www.exiges.com/ubb/NonCGI/images/icons/smile.gif[/image]

Ok Guys - Here goes.The pub in question is called the ‘ELY’, the URL below shows you where it is on the map : http://www.multimap.com/map/browse.cgi?client=M6&X=482000&Y=159000&scale=10000&width=700&height=400&gride=482177&gridn=158974&coordsys=gb&db=pc&overviewmap=&scale=25000 I reckon 1pm on the 17th Feb (i.e. 1pm next Sunday). If you need any more details - your more than welcome to e-mail me.Cheers - see you there! [image]http://www.exiges.com/ubb/NonCGI/images/icons/wink.gif[/image]Steve

Thanks to Steve for finding us somewhere to meet and have a chat today. Five Exiges, two Elise S1s, and two Elise S2s turned up - so if you count the Elise models seperately the Exiges weren’t quite outnumbered! Also in attendance was Keenan in his Beemer.Click on the pictures for a larger view.

However, a friend of mine does, so our server lives there. BT kindly disconnected our ADSL line last week and so far have failed to get it up and running again. I’m assured it will be sorted by Monday evening - if not, heads will roll…Ian.
