read this before setting off in the morning.

Having been to a few car meets in the past, it may be a good idea to use some sort of name tag for actual name/forum id/car model on person and/or car.

Maybe a good idea is to jot down a few questions to ask each other for tips about your own car problems etc.

Is anyone organising a "convoy" going there/coming back or at a specific time say 3pm?

A few years ago we did a e31 meet and was organised well. We met at Warwick castle took photos, blasted down to Birmingham city centre followed by a pizza and later a curry and then a drink.

I fear its going to be an "English" meet where we stick to small clicks and piss off home at various times without saying goodbye or putting faces to names .

best regards
