Arranging meets in the UK & Ireland-Quick Guide.

For full details of meets and events refer to the UK Calendar:
https://www.slkworld.com/united-kingd...-calendar.html



A couple of points for clarification:


1. Any member can arrange a meet. No need to be a moderator, minion, or long standing member.
2. A meet can be simple, such as a breakfast, or involved like a show.
3. We have short breaks, but you can join in for a meal, or drive. No problem.


Guide to setting a meet.
1. Pick a location that you know with good parking and toilets.
2. Preferably with food nearby, or on site.
3. Set a date in advance. As a guide, think a month ahead.
4. Check the UK calendar (Link at top) to check for clashes.
5. Start a new thread with the date and location as the title.
6. Don't worry if you can't edit the first post. Our moderators will do that for you.
7. If your numbers start to climb it might be worth checking with the establishment your planning on using for your meet that they don't mind, and, if a breakfast meet, that they have enough food in.


A couple of links to previous meets that give an idea of what to look for:

Read those threads.
We all had fun.
We made new friends.
We learnt far more from fellow members than any visit to a dealer.

Although target at UK members, this isn't a bad starting point for anyone thinking of holding a meet anywhere.

No meets near you?


Set one up for yourself. Check the calendar first
