NMEG in the Peaks

Recommended Posts

Guys,

The Christmas meet on the 16th December seems along way off and I'm thinking of doing a re-run of the famous 2006 "Not the Alton Towers Run" because I need a hoon

I'm thinking Sunday 25th November.

Meeting initially at the Shire Horse just off jct 14 of the M6 before moving off to the Little Chef in Uttoxeter for a bacon buttie and coffee.

Then its over to Cheadle and Ashbourne before heading back to Uttoxeter and the M6.

Might even do a detour over to Hartington in the Peak District. Good photo opportunity if not too busy.

Anyone interested?

Graham.

Hi Graham,

Excellent.

Looks like we've got ourselves a run out.

I will meet Alex at jct 14 M6 (Shire Horse) and then we'll meet you Peter at the little Chef in Uttoxeter.

I'm thinking probably 9am at jct 14 and 9.30am at the Little Chef. That ok with you guys?

Anymore takers..........Howard, Oneshot, Dodgy, Simon, Phil, Ade, Dave Barny etc etc ?????

Cheers,

Graham.

Barring anything else coming up count me and Gina in. We will meet at J14 M6. I especially like the idea of Hartington, there is a fantastic cheese shop there.

Ade,

The Stilton from Hartington is world famous. Coming up to Christmas they can be busy. Car might stink for a while after.

Andy,

You're more than welcome to come and play. Hope you can make it.

Graham.

I'm up for this too. It's a while since we've had a regular hoon as opposed to just driving to an event.

I was thinking the same.

Just had to watch my eldest play footie (zzzzzzzzzz) near to Cannock.

Lots of snow but it was mixed with the rain so it didn't stick.

Things can only get better B)
