Mark, Majority of events centre around the Midlands.

There's a Donington Park Cafι breakfast meet on the 30th:
https://www.slkworld.com/united-kingd...er-2016-a.html
A very good one for newbies & first timers.

We are having a meal and the drive through Blackpool Illuminations on Sunday (tomorrow):
https://www.slkworld.com/united-kingd...h-october.html

If you check out the calendars for 2016 & 2017 there are upcoming dates for events.

The archive gives some idea of what we do and where we go.
If you like the look of one we did this year you can keep your eyes open for that event next year:
https://www.slkworld.com/united-kingd...ml#post2834530

Some are just SLK folk and a few hours.
Others are at events & fairs where we park as a group.

We also have mini breaks together. Scotland in the spring is next up:
https://www.slkworld.com/united-kingd...ng-2017-a.html

You will be welcomed at any of them.
We do talk slk, but we talk so much more too.
I started going to meets in March and haven't looked back.
Made some great new friends, learned much about the cars.
Ended up trading our 230 Kompressor for two more slks thanks to seeing members cars
and made updates to both thanks to tips from members here and at meets.

Hi @MarksSLK - you've found it! Welcome from not-so sunny Northamptonshire. This is a great forum for SLK Owners in the UK. There are meets and members all over the place. Check out the map showing where we are, and places that are used. I'm sure @dbgrn will be along in a minute with a link, as I can't find it.

Lincoln is a fab city - visited it many times as my wife is from near there, and my daughter and her family live nearby too.

One UK map as requested.

Feel free to add your location. There's a full description in the thread but we are NOT putting the exact placement.
Just the first bit of your postcode, or the centre of the nearest town/city.

Only @dbgrn can update the map, so you'll need to pm him with details.

Hi Mark

Look like most of what needs to be said has already been posted by others... I can't believe I've been so slow in responding (most unlike me)! Here's a summary of some of the key UK links, most of which have already been provided above...

2016 UK Meet Calendar

Archive of events from 2016 (many include links and pics)

2017 UK Meet Calendar

SLKWorld UK & Ireland Members and Meeting Points Map

If you PM me your approximate location (start of postcode, a local pub, or I can just use "Lincoln"), I'll add you to the map. Don't worry about needing 15 posts to send me a PM (although you're almost there), as you can send PMs to moderators at any time.

If you have any more questions, please just ask!

Cheers, Dave
