Try and aim for the Saturday, as Sunday usually involves people who've stayed over getting together for breakfast then heading home.

Sounds as if it might be local-ish to me so I may show my face on one of the weekend days.

Nothing too definite though atm as we'll have a 3 month old by then. But keep me in the loop.

Thoroughly enjoyed the M3 Cutters blast around Derbyshire this weekend so I've got a taste for it. And if I can keep up with those boys...

I'll do that, just need to get someone to look after the little one as my wife works Saturdays. "Muuuuuuuuuuuummm........."

I can bring the DSLR as well if anyone wants some pics taking or if someone is already doing that then I'll just keep quiet

Sounds like a plan that Ant.. Can't have someone who gets travel sick at one of these meets! Will be good if you can enjoy the drive this time rather than be worried for the OH!

Matt and I met to discuss this recently and this is what we have come up with so far:

Weekend of 26th -28th July
Main drive on Saturday 27th.


Main base Halifax, West Yorkshire. There's a new Premier Inn just opened, several decent pubs and restaurants and a safe car park.

www.broad-street-plaza.co.uk

http://www.premierinn.com/en/hotel/H...ax-town-centre

Outline Plan

Friday
Couple of beers and a meal at a local restaurant/pub for anyone who is arriving on the Friday and staying over. Although I live locally and Matt is in Leeds, we'll be happy to meet up with anyone and sort something out.

Saturday
Meet 10.30-11
Drive 11am
Stops en route somewhere for chat/photos etc.
Lunch around 1pm (pub) in or near Holmfirth
Drive and further stops for chat/photos
Return to Halifax for a bit of downtime before the evening lash up

Meet at Wetherspoons for a pre-dinner drink. Evening meal at 3 Olives, drinks around town for those who want to indulge!

www.3olivesmezebar.co.uk

Matt and I went recently with our respective partners and we had great food at very reasonable prices. Thought it might make a change from the almost obligatory curry, but if anyone has strong feelings about this please add your comments!

Possible route - this takes in some cracking roads and is centred on Holmfirth as a lunchtime stop.

https://maps.google.co.uk/maps?saddr...6,8,9&t=m&z=11


Sunday is usually a quiet checkout and people usually head home, but if anyone wanted to meet somewhere for lunch I'm sure something could be arranged.

Hope we have a great turnout. The emphasis is on the social side of things rather than tearing up the countryside or showing off our cars, but we do like a pretty spirited drive! More details will follow, but please feel free to comment or ask any questions.

Gav & Matt
