    Default Future Scottish meets....

    As the above says..........

    Thought I would ask the question about meets......and I bet your thinking what?
    What I'm trying to say is what makes a good meeting place, ie eating, shopping for the ladies, swing parks for the weans and places too stay overnight if we want to make a night of it, ie BBQ's and a swally.
    I was trying to get a rough idea for future meets so we could try and keep everyone happy...
    What about locations near to you that you think would fit the bill "no Spar shops Pogo..lol" any country parks or places like Strathy Park...
    Or what about getting some meets set up with some of the RO's down south, cause I know I would like to see some of these guys and girls mottas not to mention speaking face to face rather than over a PC all the time...lol
    Also, not so much this year, but looking at future shows and getting a stand of our own at these shows, I know Scotland hasent got the best cars shows and I know that this will not put us off...lol

    Just wish that the main shows would move a bit closer to the border...... ..

    So could we please have your thoughts for future meets and lets make them better.......

    Davie.....

    Good questions Davie seeing as most of us here are out the "loop" of going to major shows during the year mostly due to location

    In terms of making a good meet point, IMO it can be various things dependant on who is attending I.E if its just the guys then its can be anywhere as were not proud but if its a family theme along the lines of the bigger meets down south as you say their definately has to be facilities

    In terms of where to hold the scottish meets, IMO your always going to get a bigger turnout in a central location as this is where the core of members are based. Pain in the @ss for the likes of myself, RBK, Bainie who are spread out around the counrty but it does make sence but hopefully the new RO will spread the meets around Scotland so not to make us travel hundreds of miles to attend meets all the time

    In 2007 we should look at the major events calender and as a Scottish region get to one of the major shows, make a weekend of it with the family and have a scatter of bevvies with the rest of the guys camping/hotelling it. I attended PVS this year and TBH it was an eye opener, loved it Another option would be to attend a themed meet south of the border llike the NW touring car day or one of big phils santa pod trips as these are doable in a day trip(just for me LOL)

    No matter what happens when the new RO is appointed its going to make a massive difference cause TBH up here at the moment is a shambles...harsh but fair which im sure you will agree

    I know where your coming from Steven, its just trying to make the meets a bit easier.

    If we could have a calander like thing then we could make everthing a little bit more better to book and rather than have a couple of weeks we could have a couple of months......

    I was trying to involve the whole of Scotland not just the ones that had been attending the meets, but to get more of the Jock team on board, plus there are some great places out there that are just right for meets....

    Also places like the Pod, I would love to get my sorry A55 down there and see whats its all about, so then we can come home and use these ideas...

    Its just that I would like to see North of the Border moving up a gear, and getting more of a foot hold in the scene, like VVOC and the like...LOL

    So come on PPL, lets get your thoughts down here and see what we can come up with..........IT'S THE LAW you know.......

    Davie.....

    From what I can gather Davie you need a location with onboard Threshers and Dewhursts shops, so the barby supplies dont run out

    The pod is definatly worth a visit from us lot in the north after seeing the jetcar at PVS i really fancy seeing it at night as it was something else

    Having meets in remote areas is going to require more commitment from everyone, how many people would travel 2+ hours to get to a meet at present.. i would imagine very few so in reality your stuck having meets in the central belt if you want a decent turn out

    We defo need to get to one of the big shows down south Davie and have a night or 2 on the pi55
