OC Members old and new Cornwall Camping Event 7th-9th September

Post by MR2Jay » 07/08/18 9:45

Good morning folks,

A little while ago, we were fortunate enough to be invited to Dave (Tallboy) and Tammy's housewarming which made me realise that over the years we have made some really good friends. Like everything, people move on with families, houses and all manner of other commitments. People move on.

Because of this, people lose touch which is a shame as the group over the years has had some amazing characters, most of which we haven't seen for a long time. This got me thinking about a way that everyone old and new with the club can come together for a weekend and reconnect.

This gave birth to the idea that rather than relying on a show to bring people together, why not find somewhere that everyone can just meet up, have a laugh and do what this club does so well which is socialise.

After quite a few enquiries, I eventually found a campsite in Bude, Cornwall willing to take a large group. Now in order to do this, we needed to find a date that was a) Still warm enough to camp and b) off season. To that end, the weekend of the 7th to the 9th was settled upon at http://www.atlantic-camping.co.uk/

Cost is £10 per adult per night which includes use of the facilites as well as the chance for an electrical hook up. Tents and campers are welcome. The beach is also only a mile down the road, opening up the idea of a large BBQ by the sea, including general mucking about. Kids are free (my own little'un will be coming along as well)

So if you are interested in coming along, get your name on the list :th:

1. Jay Honey (MR2Jay) (Plus Erin and Katie)
2. Lewis Whitmore (Lewiswhitmore524)
3. Jordan Clarke (devonlad108) (Plus 1 and child)
4. Andrew Scott (MR2Extreme06)
5. Russell Clarke (TaffyTBar) (Plus 1)
6. Dave & Laura Purdue (Oddshoes & ShrewdPhoenix)
7. Cori Williams (Cori.Louise)
8. Matt & Lisa Rossetti (MattRoss1313 & LisaC6317)
9. Gareth Dawson (GazzaDJ)
10. Tony Smith (::Ril::) (Plus 1 and child)
11. Lee Dawes (Dawesy)

I saw that the engine finally gave up earlier this year bud :no: Still no closer to sorting then?

This event is nothing to do with the cars though, it's all about the people. I'll be rocking up in the Audi for example. A lot of the guys on that list no longer have MR2's either :th:

I haven't seen Andy (mr2extreme06) for more than 8 years! :blink:
IIRC the last occasion was on a Kent Run: his car overheated (HG on the way out) and he had to bail.

A couple of pics (c/o markandlyn) from way back when (2008).

Great idea Jay, but the dreaded C word means I'll not be there. :no:
