I think you are looking into this a little bit too much mate it is a family friendly pub I often go too and I will be surprised if there is more than 5 or 6 people who actually make it.

As Paul said it's just a few blokes getting together showing off our cars and having a beer! Thanks for calling the pub and checking it is ok Paul. There is plenty of space in the pub and the land next to it if need be.

No worries Dan. Look forward to seeing you all tomorrow 😁

I have been contacted by a few people on social media who say they will come so lets see what we get. My main concern was that there was not an event for another car group as the pub website indicates in future dates there are.

Weather looks good so look forward to seeing some ALPINA cars and owners I have not seen before.

Well done Danny Very Happy

From initial post to informal meet in one month - impressive!

As is often said on here, there is nothing to stop anyone arranging a get-together for a few cars and, as Danny has shown, this can be turned around very quickly if, as "Nealpina" said, there is a will.

Of course, the "big ones" - such as Sytner Nottingham and Gaydon, for example - take a lot more organising as they are likely to be bringing owners and cars from everywhere.

However, an intimate little gathering in one corner of the country can be just as much fun Very Happy
