Sussex Jap Club :: Log in

Copied from the original thread:
-----------------------------------------
Hi folks

I know that Buzz & Dyney have already made mention of the planned day for an end of season Bolney style meet. We can now confirm that the meet is on. We are currently in the process of arranging trade stands (of which we have a good number already commited to the cause)

Although the organisers seem to come from a mainly Scooby based background, this is NOT the ethos of the meet and we would like to throw this meet open to you guys at the Sussex Jap Club to help us organise in some way. We have already laid the base by securing the venue and some of the trade stands, but it is REALLY IMPORTANT to us that we get the wider Jap Performance Car fraternity involved with us.

For instance, what would you like see happen on the day, what kind of trade stands would you like to see there.

Ideally, it would suit everyone I think if we could use this web site as the base for the meet and advertise the fact by way of links to the site when we send out the letter to as many varying websites as possible.

What are your thoughts?

Below is the letter we are going to post out on web sites in the next couple of days.

Let us know what you think of the whole thing.

END OF SEASON JAPANESE BASH

To drop the curtain on another season of car shows & summer meets, we are proud to present the “End of Season Japanese Bash”.

The event will be held at the Huntsman public house In Eridge, East Sussex (On the A26 between Tunbridge Wells & Crowborough) on Saturday 7th October 2006. The day will start at 12.00 midday and go on into the night for those wishing to stay on and enjoy the live music.

The bash will consist of not only various makes of Japanese performance cars but will also feature several trade stands catering for many different tastes. From In Car Entertainment through to specialist Japanese car importers and many items in between. The Huntsman will be laying on BBQ food for purchase during the day as well as a fully stocked outside bar down on the fully covered decking area (just in case it rains).

This “Bash” is open to ALL kinds of Japanese Performance Cars, very much in the same kind of vein as the Bolney meet at the start of the season.

There is more than ample parking at the Huntsman, on the road outside the pub we could fit around 200 cars, there is also parking for around 40 – 50 cars on the pub gardens to the rear of the pub which will be used for a few “Show & Shine” cars (please let us know well in advance if you wish to display your car, so that we can save a space for you) this a non competition thing but we would like to make a centre show piece of various clubs top cars if possible, the remaining spaces will go on a first come basis. On top of this we are trying to secure some more parking in a field opposite the pub. But we do have the option of using an adjacent car park which is only 250yds away from the pub and that will hold another 100+ cars.

Starting at around 6.30pm the band will begin to entertain those who decide to stay on into the night. The Pub will be serving its normal menu in the evening to those wishing to stay and have a fantastic meal.

This meet, like Bolney will be sympathetically policed, but fly bys and general lunacy will not be tolerated at any stage. The road outside the pub is fairly narrow but the A26 Eridge by pass runs about 500yds away, be aware that there are likely to be speed traps at some point in the day on the by-pass.

On the day, there will be a few wildly dressed people walking around with collection buckets, we will be collecting for the Richard Burns Memorial Fund. Please give generously when you see these people.

We are looking to make this an annual event, with your support we can make this something special.
-------------------------------------



Small meet (but growing as word gets around) at the Huntsman Pub in Eridge (just outside Crowborough on the A26) this weekend coming (Sat 7th)

Unfortunately, I did'nt have the pleasure of meeting the famous girlfriend's Sister at Donnington.

I think that by hanging around with Moley & Koolblue, they may have frightened her off ......:chuckle:

Nothing to do with my striking good looks !

Indeed John! There are plenty coming from other clubs though apparently.

Should be about 30 odd from 'Sussex Jap Cars'.

Rob, we did look for you, she was especially keen to get out for a couple of laps as I had no track time booked, unfortunately it didn't happen - maybe next time :)

ROFL, I'm actually not making it till 3:30-4:00pm anyway due to other commitments, but it is going on all afternoon and possibly into early evening for those that stay. I mean, this place is literally 5 min from where I live, so I might hang around in to the evening anyway and sink a few jars and pick the car up on Sunday.
