    Or a non starter?

    This has cropped up in my defectors thread on the General section. I think Scumbag first suggested it and I think it's a cracking (if slightly perverse) idea......what about you guys and girls?

    The idea is this......we have a MBClub.co.uk GTG but NO Mercedes turn up, members with other marques only.

    I'm thinking somewhere around the Midlands / just North of Brum so it's central for people.

    Ideas anyone? Feel free to shoot it down if you think it's a pants idea.

    No cheating by turning up in your '2nd' vehicle.

    According to your list, you would have to use your 3rd vehicle. :)

    I wouldn't mind a GTG though a bit further South would be nice.
    Quite a stretch from Poole in Dorset.
    Also might be worth waiting until Scumbag gets his beast next month.

    I too, live far away in sunny Bournemouth:crazy: , maybe we could start a meet on poole quay, like the bikers do? but I would always be afraid that the RUST from my car might just infect others :p through too close contact

    I like the idea. I emailed Maff to arrange a embarrasing time for his new car and suggest sometime in November. sat 11th anygood.? I dont know if he would want to travel that far down but i will be visiting family so i dont mind a southerly location.

    By the way. Maff hasnt replied to my email. I assume he has died laughing? I was actually going to take the SLK as it was booked in the the rolling road at DMS. but as things stand, thats gone west now.

    I am not sure Maff could actually stand with a 100feet of the Hemi-monster.

    if i am still in the running in period, any rides will be at 3/4 full volume!

    We should invite Mercedes Benz people from Mercedes. oh no, hang on. what about having it at Brooklands? the world of mercedes!!!

    hay, this one's kicked off nicely.

    The Midlands was only a suggestion, I'm open to suggestions for a venue.

    Scumbag has suggested November 11th......sounds good to me......what about everyone else?

    I'm sure non defectors could turn up if they wanted to......we could have a bun fight!!!!
