So after last nights antics & some lessons learned after a democratic vote we're organising another one! We know some more of you local types go more often but we thought we'd organise a big one after some lessons learned!


SATURDAY 29th AUGUST 2009

THURROCK SERVICES MEETING POINT​


This time we do need someone near that huge roundabout who's local to take the lead to keep on the A13 :chuckle: & a good location to plonk us all in too for the night! Maybe worth getting there earlier as well to get a better parking location if we're going near the casino/cafe place.

I'll sort the weather ... hopefully :p

Good man Rob. Be nice to meet you, and all the rest of you. Might have to nip me out in the 35 though, as Zed Ed let me down last minute by not turning up!

Lets load this list up now! Make it a big one! Kriss even makes tea from the back of his fat arsed 32! Lovely!

You could go down the A127 but this road has speed cameras along it now from basildon
It does average speed cameras:) the problem with this is the A127 Diner is just past the first set.
So if anyone spends half a hour eating when they come out they have over 2miles of road almost certainly without radar traps until the next average speed camera.:eek: shocking must get on to the council.

Apparently there is some sort of cruise event happening on the same day with people meeting at Thurrock Services around the same time we are again! I know a few have said they may go to this first then come to Southend after but just to let everyone know.

(Arranged by two car mags apparently)

hi yes its the traditional bank holiday cruise

August one is the biggest one of the year

easiest route to southend is the A127 not the A13 as yourl come in at the wrong part of the seafront.

plus there are loads of sets of lights.

When you take the 13 to saddlers farm, then up to the 127, you've only got 2 or so miles at 50. After that you gotta have a squirt between 40 cameras. Not too many though.
