Hi All

As no negative comments(!) and I have confirmed that the show near Newark is on for the 11th, so pushing ahead on that weekend.

We took a drive out today and called in at the Petwood Hotel, Woodhall Spa (https://www.petwood.co.uk) which has an interesting wartime history and has a large car park. I was thinking of it being a early afternoon coffee/lunchtime stop as they offer a simple coffee/tea through to full lunch if you are that hungry…..

We also called in at a local Pub/Restaurant/Hotel the Hare and Hounds (https://hareandhoundsfulbeck.com) at Fulbeck which we have been going to for years and have put a provisional booking for the evening of the 10th. They also have rooms available, all are doubles, but there is a single occupancy price at a small discount.

The other reasonably local hotel worth considering is the Old Barn near Marston which has plenty of parking and a pool etc.

A bit of Googling will bring up various other options, but they were the ones which came to mind.

I was proposing to meet up at our house in Oasby, East of Grantham, postcode NG32 3NA for tea/coffee/ toast/croissant etc (no meat, sorry..) and to set off for a reasonably long drive heading for The Wolds and eventually zsstopping at The Petwood for a break, then a shorter drive back. For those interested we could take in the perimeter roads of RAF Coningsby and Waddington. No idea if there will be any activity on a Saturday…..

For Sunday, probably meet up at the Hare and Hounds assuming some are staying there, if not maybe our place, then shortish drive out to get to the show at Muskham just off the A1 at around 11ish. I assume folk will then make their way onward from the show. The show is a charity raising event put on by my local club, The East Midlands Classic Vehicle Club.

When we get nearer the time I will need to have an idea of numbers to let the Petwood and the Hare and Hounds know, so if you know you are coming please let me know how many.

Thanks

Peter

I think Theo takes more of a halfway house approach, finds a nice hotel then gets participants to book themselves on a book quickly or miss it basis. He’ll correct me if I’m wrong. This avoids deposits/speculative reservations etc.

Yes that's right. I/we convince the hotel to hold/block a number of rooms for us for a certain time to allow people to book direct with the hotel. Most hotels are quite open to this and offer a better rate than if booking individually.

Always amazes me how far the Gamma Consortium travel for their weekends  Smiley but worth remembering a fair amount of them are retired, and maybe have more time on their hands  Cool

Are you calling us old Tony?  Grin It's because Gammas are true Grand Tourismo cars and so very reliable that we go as far as we do Wink  Grin

Hi

I picked the Hare and Hounds, not for the room space, but we have eaten there many times and the food is normally very good, even for a larger group. Hotels around us are fairly thin on the ground and the Old Barn was around the nearest I could think of, though when we have eaten there (some time ago) I was not overly impressed.

So yes a compromise on location, but wanted to go with somewhere we knew of.

Great location.  The Hare and Hounds is excellent.  I've eaten there on quite a few occasions from my Cranwell days.  Adnams beer is always good too.

Sorry guys, due to unanticipated family commitments (Christening which I am told I must attend) I won't be at Beta Meeta this year  Cry

I haved cancelled my booking at the Hare and Hounds so there should be a double room available if anyone wants it.

Hi Peter,
I’m in and booked at the Hare and Hounds for Saturday night.
