Right, how about this then.

A meet somewhere in the Midlands area for all us Nissan owners. This would include the GTR, GTS's, GTi-R's, SX's, 300Z's, Primeras, Almeras's etc., basically anyone and everyone with a Nissan performance vehicle.

Also I would like to hear everyones thoughts on the inclusion of the Datsun Z lads and lasses's.

I think this would be a top meet and would give us all a chance to mingle with the other Nissan Clubs.

Would also like peoples thoughts on a venue somewhere around the Milton Keynes-ish area. Only say this as Milton Keynes is quite an accessible area.

One more thing, dates. I know we are planning a Gaydon Meet on the 21st July, with Billing the week after and 10 of the Best the weekend after that, phew. TRAX is on Sunday 8th September by the way.

So what about one of the weekend days in August, 10-11th, 17-18th, 24-25th.

It would be nice to be somewhere Midlands area so making it as convenient for us down South, as everyone up North.

Does anyone know who to contact re the hiring of Santa Pod or any other suitable venue. I'm sure if we got enough interest and had to pay a nominal amount for somewhere like the Pod people wouldn't mind.

Would like everyones thoughts please.

Thanks.

glen

ps. I'm gonna start contacting the other clubs/groups.

Geography lesson!!

Hey up you!

Sounds a great idea Glen. It would be good to get together with other Nissan owners.

Just a point poppet - Midlands is a splendid idea!!! But you have chosen the most southerly tip of the midlands possible:p

We live in the midlands and Milton Keynes is 2 hours away;)

However.......

We'll still be there:D

Be great to get a big Nissan/Datsun collective in the North of the South (the Midlands;) )

Keep us dodgy 300zx owners posted on any date settled on, we'd love to be part of it.

Glen, d'ya know, i've been thinking about this one myself recently, i know it's something that's been discussed in the past, just nothings ever come of it.

Personally, i think it's a great idea. I'd be more than happy to spread the word to the rest of the GTI-R collective, who i'm sure would be very interested - esp. as it's planned to be held in a more central location (or at least, a location that's easier for all parties to get to).

With regard to santa pod, i think it's around 2.5k to hire. I was looking at this idea as the replacement to Bolney, but i'm gonna stick to a tried and test thing for bolney (although it won't actually be in bolney next time !). When i got someone to enquire for me, they only had a few dates available that we could go....Afraid i can't help as to whom you would need to contact, as someone obtained the info for me.

I don't think any of the above dates are going to cause me any issues (i'm not running in 10 of the best, won't make Gaydon, and Billing ? is that JAE ? never been).

Nice one for getting the ball rolling.

Cheers,
Daz

Be up 4 that, I met Steve (PurpleR33) at Donny and it seemed a fantastic venue, the only prob might be that it is quite expensive for us non stinkin rich type peeps ;) so get us a good price and I'm sure the 200sxoc clan'l be well u 4 it :D

be great to meet up with all the people from the different Nissan forums I've browsed. Fantastic Idea :)

Suppose I need to get a gauge of the amount of motors coming and then venue cost, and then see what the split is.

I'll get some prices in the meantime though.

I know a lot of people won't want to go for a full on trackday but there is plenty of space for just 'park and talk' at Donington so people don't have to splash out big dosh to come?

What a year for meets and events eh? GREAT INNIT?!

Whatever, I'm in :)

Top idea, not on the 18th August though, us 200SX lot have a rolling road day in Norwich then. Bugger.:(

How about the August Bank Holiday, the 26th?? There arent any race meetings that day, so perhaps there is a track day booked?

Donington Park

I was going to go a jap meet there on GT car day but the skylines did not enter. I read that they might still enter the 2 R34's later in the year so if that happened that would be a good place to meet. Just an idea (that probably will not happen.... a load of hot air as Calum Lockie said).
