Why should we let the Northerners have all the fun???

I'm at the early stages of planning a massive (maybe up to 500 cars) Scooby only event in the Central Southern area this summer. Venue, date & details to be confirmed, but it is likely to be around Reading/ Newbury/ Oxford area as it is very central and easy access via motorways. I'm looking to organise this at the height of summer - so July/ August maybe.

This idea has the backing of SIDC and I am working in collaboration with various other Regional Organisers from the South.

As this would be an event for you V the Scooby Community then I'd like to get an idea of what you'd like to see there and also to gauge your interest - so please post with any ideas and indeed if you could be interested in attending. My plan is for a free-entry event with Trade stands and Show & Shine and maybe Sound-Off Competitions. Also raising monies for Charity.

Please post on this thread with ideas on the following: -

X Location/ Venue - that can accommodate 500 cars.
X Trade Stands - any companies you can recommend to be invited.
X Things to do - what would you like to see there to keep everyone entertained (serious suggestions only please).
X Charities - that could be supported.
X Anything else at all that you think maybe of interest to the organisers.
X And post if you'd be interested.

Thanks in advance for your help. Once a venue and date is confirmed then a new, official thread will be started.

Thanks

Terry

Right folks

Date & Venue decided and provisionally booked.

Sunday 3rd July at Beale Wildlife Park near Reading and very easy access from J12 of M4. Map here (http://www.multimap.com/map/browse.cgi?client=public&X=460000&Y=180000&width=700&height=400&gride=461267&gridn=179182&srec=0&coordsys=gb&db=pc&addr1=&addr2=&addr3=&pc=RG89NH&advanced=&local=&localinfosel=&kw=&inmap=&table=&ovtype=&zm=1&scale=200000)

I was really hoping to use a venue such as an Airfield and hold a 1/4 mile drag strip - but alas there just isn't enough time to be able to confirm that this could take place this summer and I want to give you all as much notice as possible. However plans will be laid for such an event next year :D

As well as a large parking area (field) and trade stands, you will get discounted access to the Wildlife Park itself.

I don't want to commit to too many details just yet as I am going to meet the Events lady at Beale Park on Monday 21st Feb. After then I will confirm details and start a new thread - just want to keep you all posted on progress so far.

Many thanks

Terry :D

Greetings from an American Suby enthusiast. I am going to be in London from May 14th-July 3rd. But after seeing you all are having huge meet the 3rd, I may come back the 4th. Would you all mind if I came out to enjoy the beautiful UK Subaru's? Is this location easy to get to from London? does the Train, or Tube go out there?

Thank you,
Steven

Steven

This is close to Reading and the nearest train station is at Pangbourne - should be easy from London.

Why not ask around to see if you can get a lift with someone in their Scooby?

Will be great to see you there and for more info on the venue look at www.bealepark.co.uk (http://www.bealepark.co.uk)

Cheers

London, Paddington to Pangbourne by train is about 40mins to 1 hour

From there it's probably only a couple of miles smile.gif
