As Mentioned in a previous thread, I am thinking of a GTG in the North of England and wonder how many would be interested. Also what time of year (dont want to clash whith anyones plans) Time is also important as I have never done this before and will need some time to sort things out and find a venue. Anyway, what are the feelings of the forum and does anyone have some advise to offer on setting this up?

Thanks to all of you who have replied. I have a thought, well a dream really, of using B.A.C. at Salmsbury (2 mins from Jnc 30 M6), they have a nice loooong runway where some of you could try out "things" :D I need to start asking the relative Companies if they will allow it? I also and I am not sure if this will be welcome, thinking of asking the local stealerships to come, Obviously some may find this offensive and I will bow to the general consensus. Brabus in Wigan I feel have to be asked. This day is for you guys and girls, what would you like to see?

Ian

You will never get a date to suit everyone, I assume that it will be at the weekend so maximising the attendees.

Avoiding mentioned 12th Oct and November German trip, why not go for !8/19th October or 25/26th October weekends?:cool: :cool:
