And now for something we haven't done before (at least as long as we've been members of the club) ....
A fellow OC member suggested that for one of our outings we might like to visit the Awbridge (near Romsey) Fete and Car/Bike Show. Last year this attracted over 150 vehicles, and they would welcome an MX5 presence this year in an attempt to reach their target of 200.
So for the Solent Area's May event we are going to support the Car Show on Saturday May 12th, so please come along and show off your MX5! Cars are asked to arrive on the field by 12 midday. The fete opens at 1pm and will close at 6pm; cars are able to leave before the end if you need to get away. As an extra temptation you will get a voucher for a free burger or drink or cake as a "thank-you" for supporting the
event when you bring your car.
The Fete will be held in the Awbridge village hall field, postcode SO51 0HG.
If you would like to meet up beforehand so that our MX5's arrive together, then our provisional plan is that we'll be in the overflow car park at the Sir Harold Hillier Gardens, Romsey at 11:15 and will depart for the fete at 11:30. The address for the Hillier Gardens is Jermyns Lane, Romsey SO51 0QA. The overflow car park is first on the left once you've turned into the main entrance for the Gardens.
I say provisional plan, as we want to check out next Sat how busy that car park gets at that time of day. If it's too busy we may need to change our plan, so please watch this space!
It would be helpful if you could reply to this post if you intend to come along, so we have an idea of the number of MX5's expected.
Also everyone, please do a sun dance!!!
