Paul has suggested starting a new thread for this.

 

I'm going down to Leeds Castle, starting on the A10 (Hertford area), then onto the M25, on the Saturday morning.

 

Anyone else fancy joining me for a Pootle* of Z's?

 

 

 

 

*I know we already have a collective noun for a group of Z's, but I can't think what it is.

Being a free 'User' doesn't stop you signing up on the main thread and and joining the stand mate, it's just that you don't get your entry fee paid by the club :)

 

I'll send you a PM.

I reckon a meeting place could be South Mimms Services on the M25? It's at the A1/M25 junction (Jct 23). What do you think?

Good question, Vicky.

I wasn't sure about this, so I phoned Leeds Castle and they told me that 'display' cars have to arrive between 7am and 9am. So I suppose we might be near to Sandling at around 8.15am?

Yes, we need to be in place before 9.  I plan to get to there around 08:15 to get things sorted.  But people can turn up any time between 07:00 and 08:59!

 

I would definitely recommend a fold up chair, sun hat & sun screen.  Also an umbrella - not because the weather is going to be bad, but you might want to fall asleep under it later in the afternoon!

 

There is plenty of food and drink on site (quite reasonable prices) but you can obviously save a few ££ by taking your own.

I don't think so. They are very strict about the 9am cut-off and there were queues of display cars from about 8:30 onwards trying to get in.....

 

(The cut-off is so that display cars aren't moving about once the site opens to the public/pedestrians)

Agreed. I think 7:15am at South Mimms sounds to be the safe bet. What do you think?

not sure that will give henry enough time to get ready either

 

he needs about an hour just to comb his hair

as I have none I do not have that problem

will be an early start either way though...

7:30am?

 

What time to YOU think would allow us to meet Vicky and still arrive before 9am? I think 7:45am would be risky, if there are any delays en route.
