Title: Betameeta 2018 & etc...
Post by: WestonTB on April 08, 2018, 10:41:02 PM
Hello everyone, hope all the Beta's are now happily out of hibernation and thrashing around.
As ever even after a relatively pampered lay up the little jobs (rad switch wiring, perished 18 yr old fuel return line from tank, sticky brakes, wobbly shock etc) all sorted and looking forward to "summer"... lets hope!

Where/when does anyone fancy our annual meet? Is there any events we could tag onto etc?

Also is it just me..., I know I'm useless with computerisation machines but does our donations page not work?

Squirt of oil maybe!

Cheers all,

Tim.

Darren

Itís always tricky knowing where to start. The way I did it was to suggest dates I could do and then work from there.

Good luck if you fancy a go.

Mark

July, August or September sound good to me, apart from the middle of August now booked for our family hols.

I met up with Mandy and Steve Dodge a couple of weeks ago, they also mentioned they might be interested in planning a weekend in the South West (Devon area)
Could work having two weekends in different parts of the country ?

I will speak to them this weekend, to see if there is any further progress.

X-fingers I can attend both  :)

devon is a lovely part of the country , if steve and mandy want to organise i dont mind stepping back . other than that so far i have dates free july 14th to 15th (i have got in touch with silverstone i afraid nothing going that weekend)(i have also got in touch with rockingham which could do us a track day on 15th july but expensive at £200 each ). i could do july 21-22 or 28-29  aug 4-5  or all of september, but i fancy going down to margate ohso retro on sun 30th of sept . i shall see what the general consensus is before going further

For me, I wouldnít be too worried about going to an Ďeventí other than tagging onto a car show that has worked well in previous years. Itís just one more thing to try to coordinate.

I will try to go wherever we choose, or even 2. With our usual ineptitude we have nothing booked yet for holidays so donít wait for me !

Good luck to whoever takes up the role- we really enjoyed doing it last year.

Mark

Darren, any of those dates sound good to me, Devon &/or Northamptonshire.
I could be wrong but my guess is by the possibility of having two "events" it could give twice the opportunities for peoples diary's to clash!

Mandy has confirmed shes set a date for the South West Meeta, Sunday 8th July,
She will post full details soon, in a new post.

Darren if you are still happy to still run the Northamptonshire Meeta, that would be great.
I think it will work well, for members North of Birmingham, Somerset/Devon will be a fair trek.

X fingers I'll attend both  :)

Certainly up for a drive to Lincs. I may pass on Devon, as I'm potentially driving to Dorset last week of July.....

hi guys i can still do 14th and 15th july northants . 14th i could sort some routes out for a drive to stowe buckingham where festival of the unexceptional is on , and sunday 15th a local meet at earls barton ( over 1000 cars )plenty of local places to stay around here , i could also probably put up some as i have 2 spare rooms with double beds in . i would need to know of interest though as only a week after devon meet some of you may want to rest cars up. or we could look at a later date , thx

I can't do it not least because I still don't have a Beta on the road but also I can't be away overnight because of my elderly mum who I have to keep an eye on. Sounds like a great idea though

I'm booked to attend the festival of the Unexceptional in the Trevi so will definitely be up for a Beta meet then even if I've already committed to the South-west meet in Devon on the 8th.  "Have Trevi will travel"  ;D

I won't be able to make the 15th of july unfortunately, I don't think the other half would be too impressed on her birthday, she tolerates enough as it is... but should be good for other dates. Hopefully be able to drag the HPE out for it, if not hope to be in a Lancia regardless. :)

I like the Northampton idea and the dates are fine for me.

With not just one but two Betemeetas being arranged this year, I asked my Windows 10 Creator's Edition Computer to create a tribute video to Trevor the Trevi and this is what it came up with:
