So hey all....

I'm chester based and thought I may just see if we could drum up a "who's who" and where abouts list, for us Northerners!!

Looks pretty bleak for the NW postings!!

Come and say hi or maybe drop me a PM and lets see who is around for some fun when the weather breaks... North wales and the snowdonia range has some great drive outs and a nice selection of noise makers is always a blast in my opinion!!

Todd,

Good to see the regional forum facility being used again. I hope you get a few hellos from Zed owners (not forgetting GT-Rs and Infinity, of course).

Oh, and a bump for the thread!

Hey Jeff,

It's only because it seems 98% owners on here are south of the UK and was hoping for a little company up ere' in't north!

Sorry Todd, but in the main we are based South. There are a few your way, you are an elite group and we are pleased to have you all in our company. We do love a drive though so don't think that distance will stop us meeting up.

As Chilli says, many of us are willing to travel (I spent a weekend in the Chester area in January, and have a Manchester one coming up in April but both without car). So....

 

How about you thinking of a day or weekend meet and run and we come to you? I'll definitely be up for it (dates permitting)...

Todd,

I would also be up for this as my folks are in the Wirral. Before you rush to your calendar, have a look at the Events Diary in the Meets and Events section. That way you can see which dates the Club is already committed to! I also have details of reasonable accommodation nearby if anybody wanted to stay over.

Jeff.

Hey all,

This sounds great and i will def. look at the calanders first! there are a few lovely routes from the Chester / Wirral area out to North wales, the A494 out to Bala Lake and Betws-y-coed areas, are all fantastic driving roads. I also like the area to ride out on the motorbikes too...

leave this idea with me and I will get some thoughts together!

:D you know your a right friendly bunch for "southerners" hehehe :P

Todd, as we discussed at Mod Day, firstly deconflict with the calendar events already posted for Sept and propose a few dates and an outline for what we could call the NNW (North West Weekend) - only a suggestion! Post your ideas in the Events Discussion forum and see how many bites we get. Not many folks read the regional forums, so the quicker we can get this promoted to the discussion or diary forums the better.

I can help with any issues you may have with where to post what. Just PM me.

Jeff.

Hi Jeff,

so trying to get a grip on the NW meet planning.... I have got an idea of a route for a drive out and getting some details for that and will use it as a great excuse to go drive the North Wales mountains :D

Still trying to pick a date but the weather in North Wales can be "changable" to say the least!! but it is stillon my plans :)

Thanks, Todd. The date has to come first so I can claim it in the diary. You can work on the route and I will put the event past ctte so we can start getting it noticed in the Meets and Events public section. We have plenty of time!

Thanks for the update.

Hi Todd, just returned to the fold - picked up my 370z yesterday. I live in North Wales...we will have to meet.  And yes, would love a drive out to Bala / Evo Tri etc...

I would love to come to this.

Depends what date it is.

I do have two weeks off from the 11th May 2015, but it is very difficult for me to get any time off work if it is any other date, unless it is one of my long weekends.

I spent 5 hours Friday chester to horse shoe, then on to bala, across to Ffestiniog on the A4212 then across to betws-y, up over llanfair, back to the A5 on the A544-543 and back via the B5105 to ruthin and back home up the a494 Fantastic roads for the Z although I had a few moments on flashing traction control and had to reign myself backin.... lack of abilty can be dangerous!!

we should definitely catch up and take a look at the planned drive out in sept too should be a blast with a good few of us tear.... driving considererately around the welsh roads,... ;)

current dates are looking like Sept Prof (see events thread) but if enough people say they want to do other dates, i am more than happy to meet up and drive out!! :D
