Hey guys and girls, i saw a thread on the msc a few weeks ago where the admins mentioned that they wanted to see a little more involvement from us all and part of that was to get more meets organised.

So what i'm proposing is a Blackpool run for the summer, nothing is set in stone but i'm thinking of aiming for a weekend in June sometime. So i've come up with a basic plan for the meet, trying to kinda keep things organised but without restricting anybodys freedom to do what they want. So see what you think and if you fancy comming along then you're more than welcome.

Plan;


1. Meet & Greet

This is basically a place for everyone to meet up (because we won't all be comming from the same places or taking the same route etc...). It'll essentially be a peroid of time, maybe 45mins, to meet and greet, take a look at the cars etc.. untill everyone who is comming arrives.
Naturally it needs to be a place in the right spot with a large carpark that we can "borrow" a corner of :wasntme:

So i spent some time scanning the area and the perfect place seems to be,
B & Q
Whitehills Retail Park
Preston New Road
Blackpool
LANCASHIRE
FY4 5LU

It's exactly at the end of the M55, which more people would be comming in on anyway, plus it has a huge carpark and will be very easy to find. Free parking too (Y)


2. "Golden Mile" Cruise

Once everyone is together and ready to move on, we head on west passing Blackpool airport/airstrip and entering the long Blackpool coastal road A584 (also know as the "Golden Mile") at the southern most part. And that my dears is where we cruise on up through in convoy.
Now there are options here; we can stop off in blackpool itself and everyone can go off and do whatever they want for an hour or whatever.


3. Cleveleys

But anyway after that i'd like to continue north along the coast to Cleveley's, nice big clean town with pretty much everything you would want, just doesn't have all the tourist stuff like arcades etc.. Wicked food though and a brand new prominade. (Y)


5. Fleetwood and Depart

After time in Cleveley's i'd like to rap things up by pressing north to Fleetwood shopping village, again massive car park with free parking. Loads of shops to look around if you want to and most importanly if you've been sipping cola all day; restrooms :laugh:

Fleetwood also has a rather nice A road/dual-carrigeway which leads back to the M55 and home again for everyone. Which is why i think that Fleetwood would be a nice book-end to the meet.



Again it's not a totally "planned down the the last detail" kinda meet coz i want people to be able to go off and enjoy their day, i don't want poeple feeling like they have to stil with the group and do what everyone else does.
So if this sounds like something you fancy doing then put your name down, a date and time will be sorted out later on nearer to the time.

I'll be going with family and friends, accompanied by
my Super S K10
the white Foha K10
shaf and his March Turbo K10
and possibly his Super S K10 aswell.

True, i don't think people can afford the petrol. But it's only ever going to go up so people may as well go off and enjoy themselves before it hits £2 per litre :laugh: I shouldn't laugh at that, it aint funny, but it will happen so screw it i'll laugh anyway :p
Well it's something that i'm gonna be doing with the people i origionally mentioned weather anyone else comes or not. I just thought i'd see if anyone else felt like a day out.
 
Sound brilliant. I live in Blackpool so if there is anything I can do from this end, let me know! Wait until the prom has been re opened tho (July ish)

I'm not to far away. Went to a Mini (proper ones :p) meet/cruise there a few years ago and had an awesome time :).
 
Proper ones, good man:laugh: I was at that Mini meet too, the last day of production rally, what a giggle!
Im sure we could make the MSC Blackpool meet just as much fun
 
haha, thats true!
There's a great Australian film called "Goodbye Pork Pie" its about a Mini (a proper Mini!) traveling across Oz, hilarious, you must look out for it!

Date Announced; 18th June 2011 10:30am

Ok you little fanny bottoms the date is set for 18/06/2011 at 10:30am
The rondevous location is;
B & Q
Whitehills Retail Park
Preston New Road
Blackpool
LANCASHIRE
FY4 5LU

All those who would like to/are able to attend the day out, please stick your names down. If we don't get at least 10 people on board then it's pretty pointless. It would be kinda sad for there to be like 4 cars there (3 of them provided by me and shaf).

I wanna try and keep this thread as clean as possible i.e. just names or genuine questions. I'd rather avoid having loads of discussions about stuff to keep the clutter down, just makes it easier to do head counts and such.

Cheers guys.
 
I will defiantly be there!
I live in Blackpool, so if there is anything I can do from this end,

Cool, come on boys and girls now's your chance to act like a proper car club should!
I passed a ford meet over in the lake district today, and those guys were putting us all to shame, over 50 gorgeous classics over there!!!
 
Yow Porky :grinning: I'm still up for it. To be honest b, i don't think there's any proper enthusiasts left on this forum or else you'd have had a long list of names by now. Which is a shame really :( a chance comes along to show our cars off and meet up as a club, and no ones interested. grr

Meet Cancelled; lacking numbers.

There are only ten days to go untill the day planned for the meet, and there aren't nothing like enough attendants. So i'm abandoning the thing, altogether. If the people who have already put their names down wanna take it on for themselves you are quite welcome to do so.
 

Daniel

I WILL be back...
I'd be up for that if I lived closer :doh:. Nothing ever happens in Milton Keynes, or even nearby! 200 miles is way too far for me :(

I don't think we should cancel. You've got good numbers for this forum. Organising meets on here is like trying to herd cats :).
