THE TYRESMOKE SUMMER BARBECUE

194 posts in this topic

In 2003 a few members of the Audi Cabriolet Mafia decided to have a summer meet, which was a small gathering and a great success. This has since been held each summer but not exclusive to Cabrios as more of the A4 forum members joined in and gradually it has spread to all Tyresmokers welcome.

To that end we've decided this year that instead of promoting it within the A4 forum as has traditionally been the case, we'll open it right out and call it the Official Tyresmoke Summer Meet.

The pub have kindly offered to lay on a barbecue for us this year which will I believe simply be a fixed fee payable direct to the pub on the day. (I will confirm full details and amount as soon as I have them, but it shouldn't be too much).

The plan is to meet up at around midday. The barbecue will be running at about 1pm, and there will be an optional drive in convoy down to the stunning Studland Bay for an ice-cream at around mid afternoon. Dispersing from there as and when late afternoon (about 5pm ish normally).

All members and their partners are very welcome, and we look forward to seeing you there.

Details are:

Date: Sunday 1st July

Location: Drusillas pub in Horton, Dorset.

Directions: Their postcode is BH21 7JH if you wish to use a route planner or nav system, and here's a map of the location.

And a simpler map, speed cameras added by Daz. grin.gif

And finally here's a few photos from the last couple of meets just to give an idea.

If you're coming please simply copy this list below and add yourself to it and paste. (Any problems with that just PM me and I'll do it for you).

Look forward to seeing you all there! (Panamas optional grin.gif)

It's not about the top speed, its how quick you get there jump.gif

So I might have to set off a bit earlier than most, hopefully Ari has booked good weather so should be a nice drive grin.gif Might try and round up some Mini friends so I'm not too out numbered sekret.gif

Just checked a map and to be fair this is nowhere near as far West as I originally thought. Only just inside Dorset isn't it?

If I'm off work that weekend, I might be able to drive the last bit in convoy with you Dave. Would probably kip at my parents south coast place on the Saturday to reduce the overall drive on the Sunday. Having said that, I did Stockport and back - spookily exactly the same distance according to AA, 143 miles - for the Sunday lunch 'Buxton' meet fine, although that wasn't even a month after I'd picked up the 205 and I was still on cloud 9.

Clashes with a roadtrip me and a mate are doing frown.gif. We had arranged to go driving oop north a couple of years ago before his Celica got written off. Now he's finally back in something interesting, we've been replanning it the last month or so.

Is there likely to be a Buxton meet this year? I've already got my name down for the Rutland meet in May [Not too late to sign up for that one, people! 169144-ok.gif]

Drusillas the last couple of years has been very good, so enjoy the BBQ, you lot smile.gif

Anyone fancy the format we did last year, where a load of us met up at the same hotel, drinks/meal the night before?

Danksy, TonyA8, Smitten, UBM, Sayer etc?

Where we all went last time was nice for the food. Cannot remember the name though.

We all stayed in some hotel the day before and then met up at Harbour Heights (just as England were losing at penalties!) - was a great weekend. Would be good to repeat it. 169144-ok.gif

OK, it's looking pretty promising for me. I'll almost certainly be en famille so will struggle to make all the Saturday evening merriment but should be able to pop out for a half of warm shandy.
