Retro Rides Gathering 2016 - Aug 28

Postby joe14 » Thu Jun 16, 2016 12:27 pm

So who's planning on going this year?
I know we've had a club stand the last couple of years with previous success of gathering quite a few e21's!

Its a great day out with a massive field of varied cars from minters to really cool buckets of rust :D so there's really something for everyone.
Not to mention all the cool cars they have tearing up the hill climb!
We even had two cars from this forum go up the hill last year.

I was gonna go last year but I saw the weather forecast! Kind of glad I missed it!

Certainly up for it this year though! :banana

last year there was a massive thunder and rain storm, it sucked.

I am going to be doing a tour of wales (road trip) this year instead of any shows so I'm pretty glad Joe has stepped up to take over this job of organising a stand.

you better hurry though, as theres probably only 20% show ground left.id even expect the camping to be fully booked by now.

Club space is 95% full!!

So far it's looking like a rather lonely:
1. Joe
2. Andy

2 years ago we had a great turn out, I think the weather out a lot of people off last year but it's a great day.
Anyone else interested?? Even if it's not an e21 it'll be welcome with us :) I'm happy to book us a club stand.

Right I've went ahead and booked us a stand seen as they're 95% full already.

I'm hoping we get a few more cars to join.
I've put the name down as BMWe21forum.net and the passes will be sent out to me, I've asked for 5.

If the car is on road, then I will 100% be up for this, but knowing me, it probably won't be! haha

I'll try and pull my finger out though!

There's a possibility I can make it in the Baur, but it depends on wheelchair access from the stand around the site.
Also, it'll be the first show I've been to since the cars been back on the road. I've actually avoided them cos I wasn't sure what people's reactions would be seeing as it's not finished yet and still needs a few jobs doing...

In terms of the car, RRG is great because everything goes, as long as its old and can get there, from pristine cars to barely running. It'll fit in! :)

The site itself is a field and there's a hill. Some club stands are at the bottom of the hill and I would say a lot of the show would be accessible (wet grass would change this obviously).

I'll send them an email to see if they could accommodate us.

Hello all,
Yes indeed it's a cool event.
Unbelievable rainfall last year spoiled it somewhat,but hey that's the English summertime for you.
I'll be there if you can find me a space.(Let me know please Joe if you're organizing the stand).
All the best.

Yeah we've officially got a stand and there's room for you! It'd be good to see you again for the third year on the trot.
I'll add your name to the list.

1. Joe
2. Andy
3. Vivacasper
4. Bigmeat ?

Bigmeat, I've emailed them asking if its possible to get a stand with good wheelchair access but they've not gotten back to me yet.

And Ciaranclarke1 is going to try to get his car ready! :)
