I have thought about this for a while myself and think maybe 4 big runs a year. One for each province and season. Don't have time to post more than the initial thought here will be back later to input more.

For me personally, I'd love to get to meets but right now I' don't have a lot of work on and I think a lot of people are feeling the bite of the recession.
I've noticed a decline in a lot of local car meets recently as well when compared to how it was say 5-10 years ago. The price of petrol and insurance is a joke.
Whatever money I do have usually goes into the upkeep of my mr2, petrol, insurance, tax, mot and servicing etc.
Because I live so far north this usually means the meets are at least 2-3 hours away which equates to an expensive day out for me.
If meets were closer to where I live I'd be there no doubt.

It isnt possible to habe events close to everyone unfortunately. The majority of members are around Belfast and Dublin so most events will start there.

Last weekend I was at a drive that started and ended 100 miles from my house.

The coast road run is one that anyone from the north or north west could join in with only minimal extra mileage, but no sign. Had to bea bit of give and take, Infamous.

Prime example, the first post on page 1 of this thread..... that guy never turned up to any meets despite him wondering where the events where

Funny you bring this up Spanky. On Thursday night I was looking a Toyota, GT4 and Supra owners clubs to see if something could be done on a Toyota theme. I can't see that there's any events for Supras and GT4s in Ireland.

I'll ask anyone who turns up to the Carrick show for ideas on what they'd like to do. I did invite club members to a karting event last year but got zero interest!

Guys and gals, please let Mark or Mark know what you'd like to do. Does repeating the events get boring? Should we do different drives each year? Should we team up with other Toyota owners? :confused1:
MR2 sold due to baby. Its now an Impreza WRX STI V4 2.5L. Sorry!

Might not be a bad idea, they could be faster than some 2 drivers :laughing

Sadly you're probably correct about being faster.....

starting to feel like I'm banging against a brick wall guys

at this rate next year will be the coast road run (as it is tradition) and nothing else

everyone has had plenty of opportunity to speak up in this thread or PM me or the other Mark, with ideas comments or concerns

if anyone can see a reason why we should continue to plan runs, meet the PSNI etc etc just for 3 people to turn up then please tell me

you need to say what you want and join in the events

this thread was started by someone who apparently wanted to go to some events. Numerous events have passed since then and he has never showed. There are many more like that .... WHY?!?! what is it that you want to see???

As I say, this is the last shot from my point of view, if nothing comes out of this one then I will stop asking an stop organising. There is just no point putting the effort in

My car is off the road at the minute getting the brakes fixed. Even it was ready in time I'm flying out to the Chicago early sunday morning for 2 weeks (work), if i told the wife i was heading down to Dublin for a mr2 day out on Saturday she'd kill me :sad:
Damn shame because we know my blueflame exhaust would have sounded the best :th:
