Cool REPOSTED - UK Meet

Apologies for the fact that this has been reposted - I mucked up the Poll, as I wanted it set so that we could all see who had placed a vote and I mustn't have ticked the right box!!!

So if you are based in the UK and are interested in a meet up - both R170 and R171 can you please indicate how far you would be willing to travel.

Obviously would be looking for somewhere in central UK, so am also open to suggestions.

Talking

There is a method to my madness - honest!!!!

I thought if I see how far people would be willing to travel, then from there I should be able to work out what locations would be available, and then there will be a choice - and then the next thing is sorting a date out!!!!

The roads in Cumbria are just fab, especially when you've driven them all your life!!!

ok. looks like serious limited interest here.
how about an autumn meet somewhere. we could arrange it alongside the Zfrum lads, so we could compare slk vs Z4's or even ask the s2000 boys to join along aswell. call it a convertible car club meet? just some ideas.

Cool

Well I'm now back posting on SLK World, so will start thinking and working on a UK meet again, over the next few weeks.

Though must admit am thinking of going for an April date - in the hopes of getting some nice top down driving weather!!!!

Hi, A new member here, it really depends on whats on offer. I'll travel any distance for a well organised event held over a weekend, but not very far if it's for some banter about SLK's over a beer on a Thursday night.

Cool

At the moment I'm not too sure of either venue or date. Though the only thing I can say with some certainy is that it will probably be sometime after March - mainly in the hopes of getting some top down weather!!!

Thats what I'm thinking about April time, plus it also gives me longer to try and put something decent together - fingers crossed!!!
