Would be good to see this become a regular monthly thing to be honest - I know other sites / clubs have successful regular meets which are just pre-planned on certain days (i.e first sunday of the month as an example).
The advantage of this is that folk will always know when the next meet is, rather than having to memorise specific dates or whatever.
I'd defo like to see the social side of ASN expand a little.
I agree and suggest that a easy to get to venue is chosen. It can always be changed later if needed but the hardest part is to get people going in the first place. Once everyone gets used to it being on a set day the rest should be straight forward.
I guess the 'venue' is the big issue. The problem being that we have a whole country to try and keep happy here rather than just a region..... Unless of course you wanted to split it by region or area?
Finding a venue that folk will want to come to from all over might be tricky....?
I think it would definintely be worth while doing though.
What would folks preference be? A midweek evening meet? A daytime weekend meet? An evening weekend meet?
I think the best chance for getting a decent amount of members to turn up would be a weekend type event.
I know of a midweek evening monthly meet that happens just down the road from my house but by the time I get finished work etc. theres virtually no time to get along to it.
Finding a venue will probably be the trickiest part, got to think somewhere that will have cover (maybe pub/resturant near by for the winter months) theres nothing worse than going to a meet and it pouring down with rain
I think it will probably end up being split into regions, due to the size we're trying to cover. But saying that we could organise one or two 'big' Scottish meets ever year, either in a central location or have it change each time.
Stirling would probably be the most central place for a monthly meet but may be easier to have one in the east, one in the west and one north?
Good venue mate......lets set the date. Im easy for all dates as I just go with the flow. If anyone is after detailing products I shall bring my detailing goodie bag/box for folk to have a look through. If your after a specific wax then let me know and I shall bring it with me.
Might be easier to get something sorted for end of July/begining August, but probably saturday afternoons wouldn't be the easiest to attend for most people. I know for me that if there isn't a home football game on a saturday afternoon the mrs usually wants me to spend some time with her
