#1619446 - 25/04/2018 20:43 Norfolk monthly meet

Who is up for meeting somewhere in or close to Norfolk on a regular (monthly) basis?

I have had some initial interest from a few forum users via PM.

Where might be a central location? e.g. Snetterton
What time of the month is best? e.g. Fourth Friday

Would be ideal if there was a motoring heritage link maybe , like the Ace Cafe in London for example, but not essential.

I'd be interested. I know there are quite a few owners in south Essex (Southend, Basildon and the more up-market areas like Benfleet wink ). Snetterton would be good, but it's a bit of trek from down here.

Our paths would meet somewhere near either Ipswich, Sudbury or Duxford.
And that is not considering that I (sometimes) live in a pretty central location like Thetford.
So this would move even more north when we consider forum owners in Norwich.
I may rename this thread Norfolk monthly meet given this.
Although a less regular Duxford meet sounds cool, check out Blitz the other day as we swung by wink

Having been speaking with Adam16vt there are approx 5 Norwich owners who have commented relatively frequently on a facebook page.

Plus a coupe between me and Norwich, but no one seen at a regular meet in the last 6 years.

I still think the forum is a great place to chat about and organise social events especially if regular.

But I will do some work on facebook to when I find out which Group/Page most Norfolk owners frequent.

The forum's about as social media as I go BBR!

But happy to meet up....if the rain ever stops!!

Fairly flexible as to where- can do M11/A12 if you want to include the Essex guys and anyone unfortunate enough to be in Suffolk :-)

Quite a few USAAF RAF bases around if you want varying locations to meet up. And Italia Car in the City.

Nice one Alex I have been keen to see your Coupe after all the great work you’ve done.

Hopefully the other guy you’ll bump into again and we can get him involved.

I know how to contact him through FB. Also maybe have a chat with Luke and Kirk from italicar. They've got a couple in at the moment and know just about everyone in this area

Yeah sounds good. Either that or I was going to suggest combining a meet with one of the local car shows. Strumpshaw has one 3rd of June ( no pre reg required, just turn up)

That is not a bad idea either, if I am up in Norfolk that weekend I would swing by.

I think I will be back up in a fortnight for sure as I am helping lift the body of my father in laws MG TD onto the chassis lol

Well it wasn't exactly a Coupe meet - but with three in the car park that doesn't seem bad to me - here is a pic of mine from instagram...

Look out for more meetup's in Norfolk - Alex got talking with Luke from Italicar too who could encourage some numbers

A complete surprise MM - I thought it was a pokey little meet in a pub garden

How wrong I was - thousands of people attended - over a hundred cars and bikes on display - an auto-jumble, live band, great food and weather

Definitely on my list of annual gatherings now
