Hi

There is a Offical Mercedes-Club informal pub meet being held at:

Edinburgh Marriot Hotel in Edinburgh, Sunday 4th January 09 at 2pm.

Non-official club members are very welcome, so i thought i'd post up on here.

Hopefully a few members from the official club will be there, but please put names on a list if you fancy coming along:

yeah i know. They have been a very poor turnout so far, with only a couple of members attending and the last one the member who organised it was the only person who turned up, so we are trying to up the numbers. I know there are several on here who are interested in a meet. The 4th Jan is going to be the last "official" one for a while due to this and they hope to start it back up again may time. Some members over there are coming to the meet organised here on the 26th aswell.

Decembers Gazette states the meetings are on the first Sunday of each month, alternating between Edinburgh & Glasgow. No mention of January being the last one & possibly starting up again in May?

Its been recently decided on the forum and i believe there will be an announcement in the feb issue. If you go to the forum and go to the pub meet section, there is a thread about it. I think the last straw was no one turning up to the last one. :(

If it is that hard to get people to turn up, then combining all 3 forums to the same meets would make sense. It would be a shame if they were not held at all.

I won't be here on the 4th & I'm on the standby rota for the 24th, so cannot make either. Sorry.

If anyone fancies a free valet on Sunday, I will be at the lockups on Broomhall Road, 5 minutes from Edinburgh Marriot. Go past Edinburgh Marriot, turn right at the roundabout at McDonalds, straight on at the traffic lights at Tesco, take the next left onto Broomhall Road and follow it to the end. I will be there from 11am, accomponied by my mobile vehicle valeting van. I'll supply advice, knowledge and chemicals (car valeting type).....you supply the elbow grease. If not, see you at 2.

Dunno but happy new year to you. I'd advise we meet in the car park c. 1:45pm, the MBs will stand out. Mine is the dirty black E class :D My number is (edited out now) if you can't find anyone.

I'll edit this post in 30mins to delete my number.
