While I note that Tony has collected a  fantastic array of events(2 within 10 miles of me) and apologies if I have missed something( entirely possible) and also not wishing to tread on anyone else's toes- but has there been any planning for a Betameeta 2023?

Would be happy to host again in Shropshire if not- just throwing that out there.

No plans afaik Mark. I was also thinking of a re-run of Yorkshire given it was the pandemic Betameeta attracting a dedicated but small crowd. Would be happy to re-visit Shropshire again too...

Thoughts?

I would be very happy to join at either location: all Betameetas are great fun and I love giving B85 a proper blow. My difficulty is usually my summer work schedule but I'll be there if I possibly can. July better than June... H.

Hi

Would look forward to it if I am here, I will be away from the 16th July for 4 weeks.

I was hoping to organise one of these in the coming years, but not this year.

Yorkshire or Shropshire is win/win for us, count me in wherever we end up.

I'm keen to travel to either Shropshire or Yorkshire.
May I be a bit bold and suggest Aug/Sept?

Neil and I have conferred and its Shropshire.

Pretty flexible on dates once May and early June are out of the way so can I canvas some more preference please? I assume we will aim to miss LMC AGM (28th-30th July) We are away mid September which takes out 15th and 22nd September and a few random weekends otherwise. So a reasonably open field at this point.

Plan is to base once again at our house Nr Shifnal. There are a choice of hotels including a Premier Inn that several used last time just up the road with positive reviews. There is a campsite in the village ( just changed hands but new owners already adding facilities). Short walk to our house.

I'll try to sort a few drives - not too long as people will have driven quite a way in many cases. Getting some decent road surfaces in Shropshire may be more of a challenge- although hardly unique these days.

Plenty of interest to look at if required - Ironbridge George, steam trains at Bridgnorth, historic towns, etc.

So here goes....

Mark

Thanks for stepping in Mark. I've seen photos of what I think
is your place from a few years ago.
It'll be a nice drive up.

May I suggest either Aug 12/13 or 19/20. These avoid Mark W's last open day
in Somerset on the 5th.

Regards, Nigel

My vote would be for 19/20 August. Goodwood is the week after I think ( I can't do 12/13 - a wedding...). Otherwise early or very late September to fit in with your absence. First weekend in October might work too....?

That feels like a good target for me to finally get my beta to an event, distance wise a good run out without being too far.

I will be at Goodwood  again this year so 19/20 Aug or 2/3 Sep look good for me.

I won't be able to make any dates with the Beta. It's still going to be a work in progress but I'd still like to pop down for a meet! I've pencilled in every suggested date so far and will be going to one (or more) of Mark's open days.

Scrap my early October comment; 1 it hasn't gained any traction. 2. I'm now heading to Montenegro on 28th September... nice.

Ok and thanks all for the replies.

Letís go for 19th and 20th August. Might even be summer by then.

Iíll start pulling some ideas together but canít imagine it will be wildly different to last time i.e Saturday - assembly at ours for breakfast with flexible arrival time. A drive with lunch stop. Rest. Evening meal of some description.

Sunday- another drive/ steam trains/ local history to suit demand. Lunch and then hit the road home.

Any suggestions welcome.

Mark

How about Cosford Aircraft Museum as a finish of a drive?

Hi Mark

Which Premier Inn did we use, I cannot remember?

Peter

I think it was Newport/Telford which looks a bit pricey again at £129. The Bell Inn, where I think some of us stayed, is looking better at £67......
