Having airing my grumpiness on another thread, I will now try to put a positive spin on keeping the EMEG going.

For the first meet 2010 how's everyone fixed for Sunday 17th or 30th of January .

I propose we head into the Peak District starting at The Castlewood Pub just off J28 of the M1 (A38 junction)

Post interest with preferred date.


Look what Q's brought us. Isn't it nice!

A positive step forward, good to see mate :)

Dont forget to post it up in the calendar when you finalise the date and link it to this thread, it may well encourage a little more interest!

Come on EMEG crew, help make 2010 the best year yet!

just a little tip, if you organise a meet pick a date and then a venue, dont give people a choice of date or venue you will never please everybody, if you organise, then its your choice, do things you want to do if otherpeople want to come they will, when you get back tell everyone what great time you had and publish the next meet date.

by the way this is not my personal advice it is the advise regional co ordinators of Mensa ( the high IQ society) are given

best of luck

OK so the numbers for January meet look low and the weather hasn't helped!

Lets try for 21st February at 2.30 p.m.

Meet at the Castlewood off J29 of the M1 (A38 Junction heading towards Mansfield) Then we'll head of into the Peak somewhere.

Hi Mark

You really need to be adding these to the calendar mate, then link the calendar entry back to this discussion thread, it'll create more interest for sure! If you have any problems doing this then drop me a PM.

Also, a more proactive approach, do what Newts did and send a group PM out to all EMEG members telling them to get their arses moving over to this thread. Once you've cracked this first meet of the year, have a chat between yourselves and organise a diary for the next 12 months.... :)

Good luck dude! :(

Just a thought but well worth sending it again nearer the time. :)

At this time of year the weather can stop ppl committing till close to the date depending on weather/other commitments i.e. half term etc.

not guaranteed but well worth a try.

Do you guys still meet up?

I am currently looking for an S3 Turbo Esprit and would really appreciate any help and advice on offer. I live near Wellingborough.

Next trip out is Super Car Sunday at Gaydon, Warwickshire on 26th June. See the thread in Events section.
