  1. 15 years of MK

  2. 15 years of MK

    Wednesday 3rd April, 6:30pm onwards at Ye Olde Swan, Woughton on the Green, Milton Keynes, just off the A421. Ye Olde Swan has been our home for more than 2 years now: lovely outside garden area which we enjoyed over summer 2018, cosy 16th century core for the colder half of the year (no Disney windmills here!) plus most importantly really great food! Following another excellent return visit to the curry house in Buckingham in Feb, we revert to monthly meets at the regular MK pub from April as BST resumes, which also marks the 15th anniversary of the MK Meet, originally founded by Chris and Samantha on TSN. 6:30pm onwards, any enthusiast welcome, not just VAG and / or Porsche! Usual suspects please post your interest, potential MK meet newbies please post below so we can look out and welcome you. The meet is posted on RS246, Audi SRS, the S2 Forum and TSN. Table booked for 7:45pm, number required before the night, hence the roll call below.... Ye Olde Swan Newport Road Woughton on the Green Milton Keynes Buckinghamshire MK6 3BS 01908679489 The bit highlighted in red on the second map is the road through the pub - you can access from both ends. Congregate at the north end of the car park - the four spaces by the red arrow are the biggest for A8s + RS6s etc. Archive pic from the 10th anniversary meet (April 2014)

  4. Bucks Curry Meet - Weds 6th Feb

    Great to see those present, another superb curry. Warm welcome to Duncan driving one of the very last manual S4s, tried to take a pic but too dark! Thanks to the person who let me know in advance they couldn't make it - appreciated Next meet, Weds 3rd April at the usual MK pub, I will post this across the forums in plenty of time, the 15th anniversary of the Milton Keynes meet!
  5. As suggested at the close of Decembers meet thread, following two excellent visits in 2018 to Red Chilli Gold on Buckingham High Street, the usual suspects have called for attending again Weds 6th Feb. When BST commences in April, monthly meets resume at the regular Milton Keynes pub, which will also be the 15 year anniversary meet! Time flies.... We probably won't be gawping at cars outside for too long, so the current informal plan is congregate from 6:45pm onward, table booked for 7:30pm. The forecast for the week ahead (from around Monday onward) looks slightly milder than the last fortnight. If everyone has arrived, we can always wander inside earlier. There is a large car park directly behind the curry house signed Cornwalls Meadow Car Park, next to a Waitrose, 300+ spaces, pay and display, but free after 5pm. Table provisionally booked, can be extended no problem, please add your name to the list below by say Monday (4th) if you are coming!

  10. MK Meet - Weds 5th Dec

    Great to see y'all - good turn out, good company, good food! MK goes on hiatus for a while now.... monthly meets resume from April which will be the 15th anniversary of the MK meet!! In the meantime, there will be a Weds 6th February winter warmer curry meet in Buckingham if there is the demand. I will message the regulars around a fortnight before hand, and subject to hands, I will post a thread! If no curry thread appears on here, see you in April!
  11. Wednesday 5th December, 6:30pm onwards at Ye Olde Swan, Woughton on the Green, Milton Keynes, just off the A421. Ye Olde Swan has been our home for 2 years now: lovely outside garden area which we enjoyed over summer 2018, cosy 16th century core now we are well into the colder half of the year (no Disney windmills here!) plus most importantly really great food! Following a truly excellent return visit to the curry house in Buckingham last month, we revert to our regular venue for our Christmas meet. The plan going forward into 2019 is to resume monthly meets from April onwards when BST returns, with an optional 'winter warmer' curry meet in February again if there is enough interest. 6:30pm onwards, any enthusiast welcome, not just VAG and / or Porsche! Usual suspects please post your interest, potential MK meet newbies please post below so we can look out and welcome you. The meet is posted on RS246, Audi SRS, the S2 Forum and TSN. Table booked for 7:30pm, although we will almost certainly wander inside earlier given it will be dark and freezing, number required before the night, hence the roll call below....

  17. Bucks Curry Meet - Weds 7th Nov

    Great to see y'all! Really good meet despite the rain - awesome curry and superb value for money! Thank you to the two people who let me know they were unable to make it - I let the restaurant know at lunchtime which they appreciated. Next meet - Weds 5th Dec at usual MK pub - table already booked Another curry Weds 6th Feb in Buckingham if people are up for it?!
  18. Following an excellent curry back in February at Red Chilli Gold on Buckingham High Street (as recommended by Nik Richard + John who are all local), those who attended have been calling for a return visit. After messaging a few of the regulars, there is a request to meet up this month Weds 7th November ahead of the already-booked December Christmas meet at the regular MK venue. We probably won't be gawping at cars outside for too long, so the current informal plan is congregate from 6:45pm onward, table to be booked for 7:30pm. If the weather is freezing and people have all arrived, we can always wander inside earlier. There is a large car park directly behind the curry house signed Cornwalls Meadow Car Park, next to a Waitrose. The car park is 300+ spaces, pay and display, but free after 5pm. Keep an eye on Googlemaps - I believe the High street is being dug up, meaning you may have to arrive from the north east if the road is shut In order for us to book the table, please post in here by say 12 noon Monday (5th) if you are coming!

  19. Bucks Curry Meet - Weds 7th Nov

    Table booked 7:30pm this Weds 7th Nov for 8 people Last time the place was rammed and the restaurant would not have been able to add extra seats to our table 'upon arrival'. If you wish to attend, please please please put your name down (or message me through the forum / text me if you have my number) and I will extend the table before the night! Please aim for the parking spot as highlighted in red on the map above from 6:45pm onwards

  22. MK Meets - Weds 3rd Oct

    Apologies for belated pics and close of this meet thread! Last BST meet of the year, just the four of us present as we head into the crapper six months weather. A four cylinder, five cylinder, six cylinder, and, er, a James Dyson! December Christmas meet already booked at usual venue, Weds 5th Dec. The pub have already stated they will need the number before we attend because they anticipate being busy, I will post the thread in plenty of time, and please please post your name down if you would like to attend. In the meantime, there will be a Weds 7th November curry meet in Buckingham (just like Feb 2018) if there is the demand. I will message the regulars around a fortnight before hand, and subject to hands, I will post a thread! If no November thread appears on here, see you in December!
  23. Wednesday 3rd October, 6:30pm onwards at Ye Olde Swan, Woughton on the Green, Milton Keynes, just off the A421. Ye Olde Swan has been our home for 2 years now: lovely outside garden area which we have enjoyed over summer 2018, cosy 16th century core approaching the colder half of the year (no Disney windmills here!) plus most importantly really great food! Another decent turn out last month, and as mentioned at the close of last months thread, good to get the thoughts of those present for the MK Meet going forward into 2019. The last BST meet of the year would normally see the end of our monthly meets - however we may go for another 'winter warmer' curry in November if that's what people want ahead of a Christmas meet at the usual pub. As ever, the attendees make the MK meet what it is! 6:30pm onwards, any enthusiast welcome, not just VAG and / or Porsche! Usual suspects please post your interest, potential MK meet newbies please post below so we can look out and welcome you. The meet is posted on RS246, Audi SRS, the S2 Forum and TSN. Table booked for 7:30pm, although we may wander inside earlier given it will be dark by then, number required before the night, hence the roll call below....

    1. Ian_C 2. jamrowls 3. Greg 4. NikW See you down there chaps! Please please add your name to the list if you can make it! It is only fair to the pub that I let them know by 6:30pm how how large a table we need.
