Hi!

I keep meaning to arrange a meet for any Coopsters in the North Wales/North West area, time to put fingers on iPad laugh It's been years since we had a local meet. I haven't got a date or location yet, but I think it should be on a Sunday, we should meet up in a nice pub with a nice big car park, have a gawp at the cars and geeky chat (LE baseball jacket definitely optional!) grab some dinner before heading off for a nice leisurely drive around some great roads. I'm thinking something like the horseshoe pass, LLanberis, Evo Triangle?
Sometime in November. Open to ideas!

Matt smile

So far as 'maybes' we have

1. Cowboy
2. Theresa
3. Me
4. Rich_manipulate
5. Enforcer
6. MABR

I have sent anyone that has North Wales, Cheshire and North West as their location a PM (if they have been online in the past two months) so fingers crossed we get a few more. 10 or more would be excellent cool

I'll propose a date and location in the next few days and take it from there. Food and Coupe's, my faves laugh

Ok I've pulled my finger out and got a bit of a result! The Groes Inn (Conwy) is where EVO magazine usually stay when testing the latest exotica out on the famous EVO triangle:

click to enlarge

http://www.groesinn.com/

http://www.greatestdrivingroads.com/great_roads/The_Evo_Triangle.html

In the picture above, you'll see a picture of the front of the Inn with some supercars out the front. They are prepared to close off that area for our club so we will be the showpiece that Sunday. Great to get a few snaps! They will also be serving the usual Sunday Fare. They won the AA's pub of the year so not too shabby. The lady I spoke to on the phone reckoned we could fit about 10-15 cars out front depending on the size of the car. She had no idea what a Fiat Coupe was (not a massive surprise!).
I propose we park up, show off our bangers for an hour or two whilst grabbing some grub before heading off to the Triangle and a few other choice roads. 24th Nov works for me. I work shifts so it's not that flexible. I need to get back to them on numbers sooner rather than later. Who's in? or 'inn' even laugh

Well, I'm off from one of my jobs that day, but don't know my rota for the other yet, so still a maybe from me.

I have a map sticker of the Evo triangle on the back of my Coupe laugh

We could stop off at Lake Brenig too if we wanted too, as that's on the Triangle route.

I'm easy on the route. I'd like a nice sedate amble through some nice scenery rather than charging around the triangle like Messrs. Harris, Catchpole and Bovingdon!

Hope you can Make it T. I also hope the weather ain't atrocious (a big ask in N.Wales at the tail end of Nov laugh

We have enough cars now so I'll book us in proper. Still room for 5 or more cars if anyone's interested in the famous triangle?
