    Default North/West 'Suggestion Box'

    Come on then - bring on the ideas - we have the whole of 2007 to fill!!!! ! As the North West RO, one of my duties is to arrange meets and get together around the region. Sometimes, this is easier said than done, as we have one of the largest areas, and keeping track of what is on around the region can get pretty complicated!!

    This is where this Suggestion Box sticky thread comes in.

    At the moment, when members see there is going to be an event local to them, or want to suggest a meet in a certain location, they post a new thread in the North West regional area - this is fine, but often in the large amount of other threads which are posted on the forum as a whole, some really good ideas get missed.

    Our new plan is as follows -

    This new 'Suggestion Box' thread will stay sticky, so that it doesn't move down the list and get lost if not used for a day or two. From now on, if you have any meet ideas/suggestions, please post them in this thread. Lou and I will go through them on a weekly basis, and any really good ideas will be given their own thread to post full details, prospective dates and directions etc.

    obviously we will 'prune' out-dated
    suggestions intermittently to keep it all tidy and easy to read through. We are looking for the following -

    • Keep an eye out in local papers and on flyers and notice boards etc - is there a fair/family fun day planned near to you, who might benefit from a little Vectra-C presence?

    • Sunday lunch venues - is there a good local near you where you think we could have nice get together on a Sunday afternoon for lunch and a pint? We are thinking attractive location (photo opportunities!)good food, reasonable prices, etc

    • Local beauty spots - is there a park or public area near you which would make a good backdrop for a Vectra-C BBQ or photo shoot?

    • Any plans for 'mini meets' gatherings of say 2-3 cars - if I can help in any way with these I will - just put it in here then we will see if we can make a full meeting in the meeting and events section

    Good idea.

    There is a place near me that is ace for piccys, if we get the weather its even better, the pub is called the Carriage House its on the A62 just after Marsden (where i live!!!) between Huddersfield and Oldham in the hills. Now and again the MX5 club turn up also seen the old vintage wagons,cars, buses etc in the summer.

    Good idea Ian,

    2 location ideas:

    * Rivington area - Good pubs & great background for photos.

    I wouldn't mind getting a few of us to New Brighton some day...There's a particular stretch of road on the prom Where I'd like to get some dynamic shots of the cars as opposed to the car park photos.

    I wouldn't recommend Andyvecs...The off road parking is horrendous

    Hi Ian and Louise

    How about a social event, maybe a night stop and a game of bowling?
