    A reminder that our regular monthly breakfast meetings from 3rd February onwards will be at Mannerstons Cafe and Farm Shop , unless an alternative venue is posted up on the forum.
  5. You are correct on one front Mark, times change and other commitments get in the way, in my case it is Switzerland and further travel before I can’t do these long trips or motorhoming on the continent. On the other point when I had my DB9 I went along to one AM meeting for dinner and thought never again, that was 5 years ago. The AM crowd were just not the same as the Lotus fraternity. Hope you have a good turnout today and a consensus on going forward with future breakfast meets. Thanks for your help in the past. Today’s room with a view
  6. Thanks for replying Andy. I now have this vision of you with a bricklayers trowel I am sure Mr Trump will manage to build his wall without you Yes we have had some great meets and runs over the years and I am a bit sad that it might not continue. Even if there are no regular meets organised in the future, anyone is welcome to post up on the forum if they are organising an impromptu run and I am sure a few others would tag along if they knew about it. I really hope a regular venue can be agreed on so the breakfast meets don’t fall by the wayside. Enjoy Mexico! and make sure you wear a sombrero to protect you from the Kind regards Brian PS Just about to PM everyone again as a gentle reminder for Sunday as no one has added their name to the list yet although @Alfa2Evora and @Al. have said they will be there.
  7. Thanks John Times change and folks have other interests and nothing wrong with that of course which is probably the main reason for dwindling enthusiasm for breakfast meets and attending shows etc. I do hope one of of our regulars steps up to the plate to help Al. in the future with our meets Hopefully the breakfast meets will continue, possibly at the same venue each month or whatever interval is deemed appropriate. Kind regards Brian
  8. Thanks for your reply and suggestions for future meets. Nothing wrong with your suggestions but it does need someone to organise the away days etc. Organising a regular meet at Powmill or another venue is probably the way forward so that the meets don’t fall by the wayside. Brian

    So 2019 is almost upon us and I hope you and your families have a great Christmas and wish you all a Happy New Year. The first meeting of the new year will be at Corrieri's Cafe, Causewayhead, Stirling, FK9 5LH on Sunday 6th January 2019, usual time 10:00am - midday. We have been here a few times before and parking is arranged across the road from the Cafe.
  10. So 2019 is almost upon us and I hope you and your families have a great Christmas and wish you all a Happy New Year. The first meeting of the new year will be at Corrieri's Cafe, Causewayhead, Stirling, FK9 5LH on Sunday 6th January 2019, usual time 10:00am - midday. We have been here a few times before and parking is arranged across the road from the Cafe. I would urge as many of you to attend as possible with or without your Lotus as there are a few things to organise and decide on for the coming year. There has been waning interest in the breakfast meets this year and if they are to continue we need some fresh input as Al. is offshore for a month at a time and has very little internet connection when he is away. I have been doing this for 9 years or so now with Al. and it all started at Powmill Milk Bar with me @Al. and @hedgerley deciding to meet up on a monthly basis for breakfast. After a couple of meets it was suggested that we take the meets around the country which we have done, however it takes time to contact the various venues to organise the meets. I thought that when I retired a few years ago I would have more time on my hands to do the organising as I like to visit new venues in advance to check them out for car parking, seating etc and to speak to the owner or manager of the venue. We have had help from various people over the years and for this I am very grateful. As most of you will know Jackie and I like to travel and it has been quite difficult to fit in the organising. For example, as in previous years I am not available from New Year until end of March possibly mid April this year as we go to Switzerland in the winter. We have a a big trip later in the year down under and will be away for 8 weeks. Looking at the calendar it means that I am not available to attend or organise at least 6 or 7 meetings this year so what I am really saying is that if the meets are to continue we need someone else to step up to the plate on a more permanent basis and help Al. organise these. A couple of suggestions going forward and to be decided at the 6th January meeting: Revert back to the original format and choose a venue that is happy to take the group each month. This would be my favoured suggestion as once organised there is no further organising required. Someone else steps up to the plate on a more permanent basis to help Al. organise future venues which could come from suggestions brought to the January meeting and a calendar of events produced. Reduce the meetings from once a month to once every 2 months throughout the year Only have meetings from April-October Well, it's really up to you all to decide now how this goes forward so please go along to Corrieri's with your suggestions. I have enjoyed doing this over the years but as I said earlier it's time for new blood to come in and help take this forward. I am sorry but I won't be organising any further meetings but will of course attend future breakfast meetings if I am at home. Kind regards, Brian
