Sounds like a quality event at a great venue, sadly will still be Beta-less this year and will need to direct all spare funds to the VX as I am under threat from Julia that the car must be finished by the time of her wedding. So I can't make it but hopefully there'll be Betameeta 2014 and you will see me there!

Bonjour  Wink,
As last year,We are interested in joining the BetaMeeta13 event. Do you still accept offshore LHD Betas? We  know that the number of rooms is very limited and we don't want to take the place of a genuine  UK Beta driver. However the memory of the 2012 event is such that we would like to cross the channel again (the beginning  of a tradition).


Nothing to do with that : next saturday, please be kind and gentle with the french rugby team. This not a good period of time  for them (horse meat?)

looking forward to earing from you

Dear James,
Just to let you know that Anne and I have booked the two day package for this years event. Looking forward to it as I am sure you all are. Just out of interest how are the bookings going, as "traffic" on this subject has appeared a bit quite since it's announcement?

On the subject of which car we are bringing this year it looks like "Lulu" will not be ready, as I have been working on another big car related project instead, namely a proper garage facility for our cars and stuff! We have recently bought an old piggery nearby and plan to revamp it into a garage/ workshop (bolthole). The internal dimensions are 42ft long by 23ft wide and set in 0.2 of an acre. So plenty of potential I hope!

So If it's ok with you guys we will be coming up in our 1983 Pininfarina Spyder. Lets hope the weather is good.

If you haven't booked yet make sure you have before Friday 26th April.

Best wishes,
Chas and Anne. Grin

Dear Tony,
It's not quite a garage from heaven yet. It needs a new roof, entrance way concreted, complete fitting out inside, decking to rear and security added. It is a great project which I hope will take a year or so. I will post a couple of pics soon.  When finished we could have a small meet here maybe? It is just 4 miles from Marks premises, so will be convenient for the Betaboyz! (Oh I will be installing a kitchen area complete with man fridge etc).
I reckon that the turning area outside will accomodate six guests, as long as they are Italian of course!
See you soon.
Best,
Chas and Anne. Smiley Smiley Grin

Hi All

Thank you very much James for organising this years event. We are booked for the whole weekend package and really looking forward to it!

We are hoping to bring our Spyder along this year after she was taken off the road in November for a complete overhaul. We have cleaned and repaired a VX interior to go in and we are currently having integrale wheels refurbished and re-sprayed in Exeter and a new hood made. She is going to be sprayed White instead of the flat grey micro-blistered condition we bought her in.

Chas: We will be up in the next few days to have a look at this piggery and reserve the best parking places!


Looking forward to meeting everyone again and hopefully a few of you will be at Bristol!

Cheers

Dear all

Please remember that this is the last official week that bookings are being taken for our annual event on the weekend of 8th June

After this week, you can still book any of the hotel packages subject to availability- but the remainder of the rooms will go back on general release, so there is no guarantee you will get a room.

The day package and gala dinner is virtually unlimited in terms of numbers, but will need to be booked in advance through me

Any questions, as always, please get in touch with me

Best wishes
James

Hi James

Unfortunately myself and Mrs Novat will not be able to attend this year, having just relocated we have a huge amount of work to do here.  Once we have broken the back of the work and we have mire spare time available I'm sure we will be attending a few events in the UK again.

I hope it all goes well and I look forward to hearing about it and seeing some photos.

quick update!

the hotel are now booking rooms to the public, they have asked any members wishing to attend to book asap to avoid disappointment

Itinerary is so far as follows:

Fri 7th June
Check in from 2pm onwards, informal dinner

Sat 8th June

Breakfast for those staying

10am Photo call, Depart as convoy to Weston, Herts

11:30am Arrive at Halls Green vor classic car show http://www.lgccvcc.co.uk/picnicFlyer2013.pdf
Entry fee will probably be covered as entertainment will be cancelled due to low numbers....TBC

1:30pm Lunch at The Rising Sun, walking distance from the show- again, funds depending, a light lunch may now be included, but TBC

7:00pm Dinner- AGAIN the shape of dinner may change now due to low numbers, it may just be a large table in the restaurant - we just cannot justify a whole suite with 10-15 people- this does however mean that anyone who wants to may be able to turn up for a meal- I dont want to undermine those that have booked for something bigger so maybe we need to talk about this

Sun 9th June
Breakfast and departure by 11am

Thanks Tony for your help in this event. I am sure all that are booked are looking forward to the weekend, and the programme certainly met with approval from Anne, say no more! It's a shame more people haven't booked, but I hope more turn up for the day and visit the car show along with the rest of us! Look forward to seeing Claud and his wife again after their Channel hop. (PS: We owe you a drink)

If you can arrange the weather to be as good as last year that would be good.........No pressure!
Best,
Chas and Anne. Grin

Tony

Don't be too down hearted by the lowish numbers attending the hotel part of the event. This has been an incredibly busy spring in Lancia circles. The LMC has had Great Northern Weekend (GNW), Welsh Weekend and Fulvia 50 in the space of less than nine weeks. Perhaps it's not surprising that they are struggling to fill rooms at their National Weekend in four weeks time.

Personally my events budget only runs to two hotel weekends a year. I went to GNW as it is the closest to me and I like to support the limited number of Lancia events in the North of England (it was pretty much snowed off, so the hotel bit of it ended up being pretty important!). As an LMC committee member I'm pretty much obliged to go to the National Weekend, though I'd probably have gone to Fulvia 50 if it wasn't so far away.

As an indication of how crowded the calendar is, some LMC Committee members even suggested skipping the National Weekend all together!

Hopefully the National Weekend and BetaMeeta will attract a lot of day trippers.

Hi Chaps

We all knew trying to follow last years event would be tough call
James has done all the work organizing this years event, so all credit to him  Wink
what ever the numbers its going to be a good weekend, I was at Goodwood today for the LMC trackday and a couple more people are very interested Grin
also had a fair amount of emails with people wishing to attend one day

don't worry if you don't have a Beta on the road (I'm taking my VW) all Lancia folk welcome

Cheers
Tony

I hope to make this event...well from Saturday.  Just got the Coupe back from the paint shop and everything is going well on the rebuild...fingers crossed for the re-instatement of the windscreens.  The wife will phone the hotel on Monday.
