    Default Possible Venue for a North West / North Wales "Fix It" Meet

    With the "pointer" from @Critch I attended a meet last weekend where @cont1204 was having some "work" done.

    The venue chosen by Critch was a "Ramp Hire" place where the owner seemed fairly amenable to doing a deal for a forum meet.

    I promised him that I would let our local members know about his facility and would be in touch should there be some interest for a weekend "fix it" meeting.

    Located in Birkenhead, the location has undercover facilities with 3 ramps available, each of which is usually charged out at £10 per hour by prior booking.

    Alf the proprietor is an amenable guy, and interested in all commercial possibilities, to the extent that I feel sure that a Vec-C meet could make use of his facilities at a discounted rate if there is sufficient interest.

    Not a meet location for those guys who are not prepared to pay a share of the cost, or for that matter, a location where the work demands full use of a ramp for several hours for a specific job, but, a useful, undercover location with a cooperative owner, just looking to make sure that it is worth his while to open up just for us on a weekend.

    Normal pricing is £10 per hour for use of a ramp, but if we can get a "fixit" meet organised, this can be negotiated.

    Let me know guys if there is a "meet" interest, or, if you want to book your own ramp time, again, let me know and I'll happily pass on the contact information.

    Cheers

    Woody

    Spot on idea mate

    sure it would only work out couple quid each.

    even if it just gives people chance to get their car in the air have a pole around under Neath
    and then arrange for further work spotted to be done at a later date

    Sounds like a good idea Woody

    see if @paulvectrac wants to get a list going if there is enough interest and I will do the same in my region if we get enough people
