Hi fellow Skyline owners !!

I just thought that I would start this thread as I was wondering if there would be anyone from the Essex area who fancies a little bit of a Skyline get together and a quick pint probably next Saturday the 13th October ?

I know that there are quite of few of us in the Essex area now and there are some people who don't wish to travel long distances to other Skyline meets, so I was kinda hoping that I may be able to put something together for us Essex boy's ! I am not planning a big event or anything like that, just a gathering where we can meet and talk Skyline for a few hours. I already have a place in mind less than a minute or two from the A12 in Galleywood Essex and I am after some interest from other owners before I name a suggested place to meet.

So far I have myself going along (should this happen) together with Rob in his 33 GT-R and possibly T6KYO if I can talk him into it (or if his missus will let him !!) and I know that there are other owners in the Colchester area who may wish to pop down, and Scott if you are out there !? Will you be up for a little gathering !?

As I have said above, I am planning for next weekend the 13th around lunchtime for this and if I get some good feedback over the next few day's, I will let everyone know where to meet then. Oh yes, there is a really good section of A12 people could go for a quick run down should they fancy it without the hideing places for our good old friends who we all love so much !!

Come on peeps, give me some good feedback and lets have a meet before winter set's in !

Regards

Shaun.

Sat 13th

Of course you can come along Wroestar if you can make it, the same goes for any 200sx or GTi-R owners that read this, also any Skyline owners anywhere if they fancy a bit of a run out for a few hours ! with any luck we might actually have some decent weather for a few hours as well !!

Anyone else fancy coming along ????

Wear it with the peak facing backwards. Don't forget your going to Essex and need to blend.

Directions...

Hi Guys

For those who dont want to get lost in Essex (!) - Galleywood common is at the B1007 exit on the A12 - nr Chelmsford - From London/M25, turn left at the exit roundabout and you're there...

M25 Jct 28 (i think 28) is approx 15mins back down the road

Cheers
Rob

Saturday !

Well it's looking good for Saturday now !!

Slight change of plan, instead of meeting at Galleywood Common, we will meet at The Ship public house, same junction on the A12 (B1007) but head towards Stock/Billericay and its about half a mile up the road just past the petrol station on the left hand side, it's a nice little pub which should accommodate us nicely !

Plus the A12 is just round the corner should anyone wish to go for a quick blast !!

I will aim to get to the pub for around Midday on Saturday.

Hope to see everyone there

Shaun.

Speed cameras - none but be careful near m25 area as there are some inside the m25 on the a12 (harold wood)

Yes good but of road, but beware of unmarked ones as it can be a race track and a bit of an accident black spot

5 mins from the ship is hanningfield straight - nice mile + of straight road :)

Cameras for Saturday !?

Hi Alan and everyone else who is coming for a trip out to Essex on Saturday !

I thought that I would let you know that as far as I am aware (apart from sections of roadworks if there are any) there are no cameras anywhere from the A12/M25 junction up to the B1007 turn off for The Ship. Obviously keep your eyes peeled for mobile 'Smokeys' with the speed guns in case any are about but that's the same everywhere you go nowadays !

p.s. White socks preferred but are only an option ! Alan, you have a white car so you are almost there !!! Wroestar, remember that baseball caps backwards on Saturday !!

See everybody around midday Saturday !!:smokin:
