How about a UK meet/GTG?

I was thinking it would be great to get together with other SLK owners in the UK & SLKWorld.
Would anyone be up for this?
Any ideas? Maybe a day out to Mercedes-Benz world at Brooklands?
Lets discuss or dismiss the idea!

Ahhh Vegas, there was a time I would vist Vegas at least 2 times a year, I haven't been since 1999 and was saying to my girlfriend earlier that I really want to go.

So maybe I might get to try some of that 'Grits and Gravy' you speak about!

Thanks for that Doug...I still haven't eaten breakfast yet.

Sorry for going Erky...

I won't mind a trip to the UK. I know the wife wants to get up there.

I don't know if I would like to go to UK by car.
There might just be a reason why God gave them their own island

Great..... However I have never organised a meet before but have been to many, surely it cant be that hard. I guess the 1st thing would be to try and get a show of hands of those intrested then we can sort a date and place thats suits all.

Heres the list so far!

Not only do you guys drive on the wrong side of the road The size of the average car over there is about the size of a studio flat here in London!

As far as dates go it needs to be a sunny day so I would say sometime in July/August.
Lets see if we get enough intrest first.

So true, but we are learnin, and when fuel prices here match your cost we will be ridin more bicycles.... May have to rent a flat in Winston to avoid the 38 mile one way drive each day.
