Hi all. Well its here at last. Big thumbs up to Adam and Sandra for getting this sub forum up and running. :respekt: Was worth it in the long run.

All eyes will be on this forum as its the 1st of its kind SO normal forum rules apply. Any problems then let the mods know.

As the forum states this is where we will be organising events/meets. If anyone has any suggestions for a meet or just wants to chill out for a few hours with other members in their patch then post it on here.

The 1st event which HEKTOR started we shall finalise for Sunday 1st July @1200 at Braehead Audi Glasgow. Hopefully we shall see a big turnout for the maiden meet. This is going to be a chance for everyone to put faces to the names and introduce themselves and do what we do best.......talking cars. :blackrs4: See you all there.

Mark

Just a thought, do Audi know about this? Or are we just showing up and stealing their spaces?

Need to speak to Eddie as he was the one that came up with the location. As there was no real input after that the decision was made to locate it there as everyone was up for it.

Yeh was gonna add that also as Audi dont even let their own employees park there and they usually have a guard on the entrance as you go in who asks why you are there and directs you to where you should park.

I tried that before in local meets but got no takers.

Well you know what they say -

This is just a kick-off meet, getting our toes wet as it were. Once there have been a few smaller local meets around the country (maybe once a month or so) we can put our heads together and arrange a proper, central, national meet somewhere.

I'm sure Audi will be more than happy to host loyal customers, and it'd surely be good for business for people to have a look at what can be done with their products (and since most of our cars are OEM+, there's even potential sales there too - wheels, lights etc).

Wasn't trying to steal anyones thunder, but just think, before finalising the location, Glasgow Audi should be asked if they are happy with Audi-sport holding the meet there.

Hektor, have you, or anyone else, approached Glasgow Audi about this?

Not bothered by that at all, feel free to get stuck in. The more input the better.

Like i said before, I have had meetings there before without issue, but if this is going ahead then audi will be asked.

Ive not asked them as i wanted to be sure people were actually committed to meeting up on a given date.

If a list can be formed with names then it gives an idea of numbers. No doubt audi will want to know roughly how many people will show etc

We don't need a formalised list with members names. All we need is the nod from Braehead and thats it. All they would need to know is approx. numbers. And members to know the time and venue......simples!!!

Just spoken to Braehead Audi and they cant see it being a problem. The woman that would give the nod is playing golf today so I have sent an email with all the details. The sales manager that I spoke to seemed very interested especially when I said there will be afew S/RS models attending. Hopefully she will reply tonight.

Best thing to do is meet up at Harthill services on the M8.......not that far away from both Edinburgh and Glasgow - you just follow the signs for Glasgow when you get onto Edinburgh by-pass then onto M8 and park up in Harthill services and we'll meet you there.. I will be going in convoy with DannyH76's TTS.
