    For those that came to the last run, Thanks for making it a fantastic day.
    Hopefully this will be just as good, if not better!!


    [​IMG]


    A slight change to the route from last time will mean that we get a chance
    to stop for food. This will be at Crossgates Cafe.
    Postcode for which is LD1 6RE Has a large parking area so there will be
    no issues with leaving anyone out.




    We will be in Elan Valley, Brecon Beacons and Black Mountains, about 200 miles of the best roads in South Wales, as well as the best scenery around.


    [​IMG]

    Bring cameras, video cameras everything, lets try and promote Welsh roads to the club!


    There is a Travelodge hotel at the meet point if anyone is coming from far and needs an overnight stop.


    Doesn't have to be a Clio 197/200 or even a Clio to attend so don't be shy.

    Anyone on the Megane Forum, More than welcome to paste this across,
    Lets get all the clubs together :smile:

    This meet shall be held in aid of Caseys Cause
    https://www.facebook.com/CaseyBearsCause

    a young lad from South wales with many life shortening health conditions.
    We're helping to raise funds so that casey can receive urgent medical help and assistance,
    as the NHS will not fund his care. Casey requires round the clock care so please, dig deep and give what you can.

    Do what I do chap, record it and avoid Facebook. If anyone tries to talk about the race before you've watched it then jab them in the throat :tearsofjoy:

    Sadly i can no longer make this, Got told last night that the leave i had booked had to be cancelled due to manpower.
    If anyone wants to take over i will happily assist in the planning, or if everyone is happy we can move it to another date.

    No need for anyone to take over chap seeing as we organised this together lol.
    How ever, it would be ideal if @MJRacing is happy to lead some sections again?

    @Filters sadly wont be able to make this one :worried: few things need sorting out on the car and my student budget doesn't quite stretch enough at the moment! Plus it's the day that the girlfriend and I will be moving back home from uni for the summer! Hope you get good weather and have a good time. Look forward to making it to the next event!

    @CoryColeWilkins

    @MJRacing

    @msremmert

    @rev-time

    Are you guys still planning on coming?

    @Sunglasses_Ron

    Don't suppose you could help put out a mass message or something? trying to drum up some numbers and finding who is actually coming is starting to feel impossible!

    Any help would be appreciated but its looking like we may have to cancel, it's not really a meet if only 3 people turn up!

    @Filters is doing his best to hold this together but a little help can go a long way, and I really don't want to see this cancelled!

    Cheers all

    Actually I won't be coming, remembered I'm doing one of those driving experiences on 10th.
    3 astons around a track in Surrey, were stopping over and going to Thorpe park next day.

    Enjoy the day all.

    Cheers Dude! Really appreciated!

    Don't want to give up hope just yet, but thin numbers makes the effort not really worth it, and seeing as its for a good cause, it feels a bit of a let down!

    Hopefully we can drum up a bit more interest!

    Thank you muchly!

    I'll still be there matey.
    I haven't been on the forum much lately, I've been so busy and occupied with other things that I just haven't sat down and faffed about on the internet.
    However yes, I have the day off and I'll be there :blush:

    I'll try and drum up an extra person or two as well.

    @Filters is a top bloke with a lot on irl, pushing meets is the last thing he needs but its started we may aswell make a go of it, besides, hes a grumpy git so just getting his beardy face out the house will be worth it :tongueout:

    Cheers for helping to push this recently @Dano' you beaut.
    Sorry for my recent silent all, as Dan said I've had a lot on my plate to finish up recently.

    All's still going ahead regardless of numbers, if there's only a few of us I'll be making some modificiations to the route so (faster quieter roads with lots more corners)
    I'll also probably make a change to where we grab some food as well, so bring a few extra notes as I'm wanting me some steak....and you can all buy me one.
    Just kidding, but I do want steak...need steak. We must get steak.

    This is no longer a summer run, it's a steak run.
