meeting place


ricky

Recommended Posts

I live in north London and non of the meeting forums seem to be anywhere near my area. I am a little supprised because there must be a number of owners in my area.

To meet the south England group requires driving right through London. To meet the East England group requires quite a long drive - and there the closesed groups.

Are there any other meetings closer to me that are not listed? For example The Ace Cafe perhaps, I live quite near there. I am hoping to be using my car soon and its nice to meet new people / other owners.

Any ideas ?????

Not that I've ever been but you're right that the Ace Cafe is a regular venue (thrid Wed of the month I believe for Lotus & TVR). Paul C is a regular from here and will no doubt do some intros for you. But dont dismiss the other stuff - it can be fun to spend an hour in the car getting to the meets!!

Hi, meets dont just happen, they are organised by someone, if there is no meet in your area then someone needs to organise one, that someone could be you, its dead easy:- pick a venue, date and time post it in the events thread then attend then do it again and again have good time.

see NMEG thread on how to do it or AEG thread on how to complicate it

I am just down the road from Uxbridge but not seen many Esprit round here.

There used to be a Lotus / Esprit specialist 5 minutes from my door but he closed up a few years back. I used to walk pass his showroom drooling

Was that Del 'Boy' Dean in Ruislip? - If so he sold up and emigrated to Australia - Saw him at the 60th at the Factory.

I used to live in North London (Friern Barnet and Ealing) and now not too far away in Berkshire so would be up for meeting every now and then

Sure was, I gathered he had moved to Oz and taken some of his cars with him. Seemed a bit sudden too :)

Oi - don't forget the Watford chapter! By coincidence, there's an 'oily rag' meet this Saturday, all day, on my drive. Woohoo! :)

Being a SLEG, I fully expect a blizzard.

I live on Fairfield road, Uxbridge. Yesterday when I droved up my street. A house about 1 block up had his garage door open and it loooked like a white S2 cover up inside, along with allot of other stuff...

Well the Essex / London area can be a bit of a strange place Esprit wise, there are plenty of Esprits about but most never seem to break cover from there garages !. There is the official Club Lotus meet every third Monday at the Woodman pub in Ongar but unfortunately this can be very thin on the ground Esprit wise unless you can organise beforehand to get a few more cars along. We do however have a Esprit(owner) only meet in Essex organised by Chris Cole (Esprit22) usually on the first Sunday of every month, but there probably won't be many cars along till the weather improves a bit.

Paul you must be fairly close to me as I live in Highams Park and have also just discovered in my spotted post from last Sunday that Len (lguy) lives up the road in Chingford, so we could almost have a meet with just the three of us !. I can't make this Sunday unfortunately but I will post up the date of the next Essex meet as soon as I know when it is. Looking at the locations of those who have posted so far maybe we could all meet up a South Mimms when the weather improves a bit as it's a fairly central location and quite a common meeting point for various car groups.

Sarf Mimms - wicked idea, Martyn! Let's get that sorted soon. Well, late Feb/early March, perhaps?

guys,

Always up for a meet and a chat. I live in Rickmansworth and was up the Ace last night although not in my Esprit (Classic Car Night by the way). Great place to meet. Will soon get my car back on the road once Sparky works his his magic on the usual exhaust stud problem.

Trevor.

I'll get around to it at some point.

Ha! I have met the Pistonheads Paul C, we both have the user name Paul C on there,

not sure how that was allowed but i don't post there at all now anyhow so it does not

cause problems. Met Paul C at a seloc event.

IMO i'm the better looking Paul C.

Very very good, I am well impressed !! There obviously are many owners in my area willing to meet up.

The south mimms area sounds great for a North London meet, its very accessable to many. However I suggest not at the actual service station itself (too busy there and you cant sit comfortably by the cars). 1/2 mile south from the services on the A1 (at the first roundabout) is a Harvester - with a bar, seating outside and a large carpark. I suggest this as an appropriate venue. We can either sit inside or if / when the weathers ok outside.

If all are in agreement I think this venue is best. My car is not currently on the road but I am confident that it will be soon. Therefore I think it best if someone else suggests, agrees and arranges the first date for this meet.

What do you think???

Ricky
