NMEG September Hoon

Recommended Posts

The kind Dr Fishy has organised a run to Alton Towers and NMEG will be supporting the event.

The Doctor wants us there for about 8.30am. I would suggest that we arrange to meet at either Jct 14 or Jct 15 of the M6. Either is about 45mins from the Towers. Jct 14 probably favours those from Telford/Cannock/Wolverhampton whereas Jct 15 probably favours those from Audlem/Preston/North West.

Once we know who's coming a final decision can be made on the meeting point. There are hotels/motels/laybys at both junctions.

I would suggest a 7.30am meet to make sure we're with the good Doctor in plenty of time.

So far Howard, Renu, Dodgy Dave and myself have signed up. Could anyone else joining the NMEG convoy please add their name to this thread.

There are a few 2 for 1 admission vouchers available, so the next 4 to sign up can get in for half price.

At the moment, we wait to hear from the good Doctor with regard to the car parking arrangements/fees.

See ya there,

Graham.

The Doctor has put the meeting time at Alton Towers back by 30 mins, so we can do the same.

Would suggest we meet at 8.00am and set off by 8.15am at the latest.

ok with me, whereare we meeting at please?

The individual has always had to struggle to keep from being overwhelmed by the tribe. If you try it, you will be lonely often, and sometimes frightened. But no price is too high to pay for the privilege of owning yourself.

Howard,

Meeting place will be hotel/layby at either Jct 14 or 15 M6, depending upon who is coming and what suits.

More next week no doubt.

Yep - good holiday - drove down to Hampshire for a few days then over to France (Disneyland) then back to London for a show.

Went over on the Eurotunnel - wouldn't have a problem taking the Lotus - in fact going over, in front of me was a fezza.

OK boys, my plan is 8.00am at the Shire Horse, just up the road from Jct 14 of the M6. If we leave at about 8.15am we should be with Fishy and crew by 9.00.

Presume both Daves will come up the M6 to jct 14. Down slip road, 3rd exit, couple of hundred yards to next roundabout and Shire Horse is on the left. There are two pubs/Travel Inns each side the road so make sure you get the right one. :lol:

Not sure which route you'll be taking Howard. Give me a clue and let me know if you need directions.

Ian H, Nicksoldies, CarlC and Simon Gleave are unable to join us for this one. :lol:

If you people want to change the above, then please yell.

Don't forget, Fishy owes us all a coffee grande. B)

The good Doctor has agreed that the two groups (his tiddly one and our huge one ;) ) will meet at the Little Thief in Uttoxeter at 8.45am before making a joint grand-entrance at The Towers.

Hmmmm bacon butties......... :D

Due to somewhat pressing work reasons, Alex has had to pull out :D

Fishy,

Why don't you and Bibs join our NMEG hoon to Alton Towers? :D

Everyone who owns/drives an Esprit is welcome ;)

At least the diminishing numbers will help your bank balance vis-a-vis coffee.

Graham.

I have just posted over on the main AT thread...

Everyone down here has pulled out :D Alex dropped out yesterday and Andy told me today that he is unable to go...

Belting all the way up the M1 as a lone Esprit kind of defeats the point of an Esprit hoon so I'm afraid guys that I'm dropping out too ;)

I really hope you guys all still go and can post us loads of pictures of all the fun we missed out on but I am sure you will understand - I guess with the whole Hethel thing coming up in almost exactly one month, this one was just not meant to be for me :)

Sorry all :P

Word of advice - when you get to the pay gate for parking - Whoever's first, SPECIFICALLY tell them you want the VIP parking area - it's immediately down to the right, right by the entry gates :D

I'm really disappointed and also sorry to let you guys down ;)

Typical bloody Southerners...........and we've cleared the snow for you too :D

Those brave souls that are left, (NMEG memebers B) ) I am not fussed whether we go into the Towers or simply enjoy some of North Staffordshires finest. I'll go with the majority decision.

Lets meet as planned at The Shire Horse at 8.00am. From there we'll either have a drive or visit the Towers.

Fishy now owes me not only the pint he didn't buy me at Supercar Sunday, but a large luxury coffee as well.

Hethel is going to be very expense O' Evil one
