@tich65a Usually we put up a separate thread for an organised SLK meet where folk can express interest.

Pretty sure @TonyS3 will be organising another weekend at South Glos. in due course.

You could put a separate thread up for the Shrewsbury rally. See if there is interest in an SLK run.
Not sure we could have a display stand at that one though.
Do you know the organisers?

@Avel Du Thanks for the heads up.

No I don't know the organisers, but it is a great rally.
Went last year with the MX-5 club and we did not have a stand as there were only a few of us.

I'd be happy to see if we could next year though..

I'll add a separate thread and see if there is any interest.

Thanks

David

Just had a look on the MB owners Club forum, @dbgrn. Next years SLK day 21st May, British Motor Museum, Gaydon. A date for the 2017 meet calendar?
Thanks Jules, I'll add it to the calendar of events and we can include a link once we've created a thread for it, a little nearer the time. :tu:

Newer members might be thinking that the calendar doesn't look as busy as they expected.

Dates for many meets (especially where we attend as guests) are yet to be announced.
Many of our own meets get planned as the year progresses.

To get some idea of like dates and what type of events come up check out 2016's archive:
http://www.slkworld.com/united-kingdom-region/313178-2016-uk-meet-calendar-2.html#post2834530

The picture threads tell the story. Folks have fun.
They also come back for more.

You do not have to have a concourse standard car. I don't.
It gets a wash and rinse.
Then I travel, often for 2 hours plus.
So it is never the cleanest car on the block.

The number of times that folk approach us and say 'I could never afford one of these'
and then we explain the wide variety of cars and cost.
They all walk away with a smile on their face and talk of looking into SLKs when they get home.
