MK on Tour! 5th October

15 posts in this topic

Please note - new venue!

Weds 5th October, 6:30pm onwards at Ye Olde Swan, Woughton on the Green, Milton Keynes, just off the A421.    +++

Last month was the first away from the original MK Meet pub after 12.5 years.  Those present - 10 attendees, 2 newbies, 7 eating - agreed to keep the MK Meet on the road for a while and try some new places.  I much preferred the pub we tried last month to the original venue, and the cul de sac overflow car park area could work well for future summer meets in 2017.  However, Ye Olde Swan has bags of outside space, I love it as a summertime pub, and I've always liked the food, which is why I propose meeting here in October as the nights draw in.  I have a feeling it was an MK attendee who first told me about the place several years back!

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, even more so given the new unknown location!  The meet is posted on RS246, Audi SRS, the S2 Forum and TSN.  Table booked for 8 people, that can be amended if required nearer the time, however I do need a number before the night, hence the roll call below....

Just like last month, I'll post some car park info nearer the time.

Excellent choice of pub. The pies are epic. 

Shame I can't be there. :(

The bit highlighted in red on the second map is the road through the pub - you can access from both ends.  The south entrance takes you past two private houses.

Please aim for north end of the car park.  Approach from the north if you want to avoid speedbumps!  +++

I've just realised I'll be a mere 29 miles from the meeting place tomorrow at 5.30pm....
 

...alas I shall then be driving 250 miles North and a detour is not something I fancy.

Had it been tonight, I could have made it.

You lucky people. :roflmao:

Well its a bit more than a mere 29 mile detour for us southern fairies!  :roflmao:

Slightly strange thread title to try and make it stand out due to the changing of venue - I don't want people turning up at the original pub (or last months venue).   +++

Come to think of it, are there ANY of the other original meets still going?  This must be the last standing?

The NE meets ended a very long time ago, the NW and Scotland meets went the same way too I think.  The south coast meets sank out of sight?

Kent and Essex meet up now and again sometimes with a faraway guest visitor :)

Well I don't normally read in here - good job I did or I'd have been in the wrong venue.  Well maybe in the wrong venue, that is if I get time to go +++

Shao - do you think you will stop for food, and if so are you bringing your rapidly growing youngster along with you?

Great to see you all!  Eight attendees exactly as per the roll call, lovely pub, food was superb.  Those present voted to meet here again, we actually booked the table there and then.  Top / north end of the car park worked well I thought.  Some spaces are super wide and some are multi-storey car park narrow, so next time we'll try and bag the wide ones for the A8s and RS6s present!

A reminder MK runs every other month through winter time.  Next meet Weds 7th Dec.
