Default 2015 UK Insight Owners Day

2015 UK Insight Owners Day

This is just a placeholder at present for ideas for the 2015 event and to facilitate discussion of the format etc.
European/Irish Members all welcome.

I'm not offering to organise the 2015 gathering, i'm just posting this to promote discussion.

If anyone wants to volunteer to PM or e-mail anyone who expressed an interest in the last two years gatherings or other UK/EU members then we might get some serious interest.

As the admin here I can obtain a txt file containing all the users who put the locations, UK, England, Scotland, Wales, Ireland, or Europe when registering. The list also contains the e-mail address and last activity date/time.

Perhaps someone in UK wants to volunteer to got through it and any UK/EU and e-mail or PM all those who have been active on the site in the last 12 months and have at least 5 posts to give them the heads up.

If my house work continues on target I might be able to host the 2016 event

Sorry - missed this! Perhaps everybody else is busy doing something with the good weather?

I'd certainly love to see your place next year, Peter.

As for this year, I'll assist anyone with my experiences of last year's Bromsgrove event, if that is of help. It's not at all difficult and we're a resourceful and appreciative bunch

Suggestions folks?

Sadly I don't have time to organize anything, but I'd be keen to join in if anyone else does.

I really enjoyed Bromsgrove 2014. Anyone who hasn't been to an Insight gathering before should certainly try it, as the owners are a very nice and interesting bunch.

I missed this message earlier - I would like to assist - share the load with anyone for a meet this year given Bromsgrove is so central it makes sense to use again if it's still available. As it's late in the year for organising from scratch maybe everything from last year

Although I liked Bromsgrove I'm not sure I would want to go back again this year.
So many other places to try countrywide.

It would be nice to piggy back onto a car show somewhere to stir up a bit of outside interest in the cars as well.

Default Not a bad idea

bloody long way away for me but not a bad idea.

Who want's to contact them to see what they say?

I could be available then.

Alternatively the low carbon vehicle show is on at Millbrook on 9/10th Sept and I'm def going to this anyway.

I'll enquire on the arrangements for Beaulieu. Millbrook isn't a bad idea either, though it being midweek could limit attendance.

Default Beaulieu is an option... Sunday 6th Sept

OK, I checked with Beaulieu and it's an option - they may be able to keep an area in the car park for us to rendezvous, and discounted admission applies during this particular weekend with the cheapest rate available online through Beaulieu National Motor Museum, House and Garden in the New Forest (1 day adults 12.70 - 2 day adults 24.50).

International Autojumble - Tickets and Pricing Information

Admission includes entry to the National Motor Museum featuring ‘The Story of British Land Speed Records’, Palace House & Gardens including Mill Pond Walk, Abbey including exhibition of Monastic Life, Monorail and Wheels Ride including ‘Secret Army/SOE’ exhibition and Top Gear Experience including Autojumble event.

I'd be happy to coordinate the event at Beaulieu if there was enough interest; I'd suggest meeting there at 9am on Sunday - there'll be lots to see and do, and people may want to escape early to get home.

Accommodation nearby could be an issue - a quick look at hotels.com sees that this is a busy time of year. It might be necessary to book somewhere like Salisbury - eg Salisbury Bed and Breakfast | B&B | Sarum College, Christian Education and Conference Venue in Salisbury, England - and then have a 30-mile drive in the morning, to arrive at Beaulieu together.

If we said let's do Beaulieu on 6th September, who's in?
