Title: The Big Abarth Summer Meet - 3rd June 2018
Post by: Colin on November 09, 2017, 06:28:24 PM
Here is an early warning of what will be THE Abarth Owners Club event at the year.

We have made a provisional booking for the exclusive hire of an interesting location for an Abarth Summer meeting on Sunday 3rd June. As well as providing a very accessible central location for Abarth Owners to meet up en masse, (we will not run out of space even if we get 500 cars!), the site has huge appeal to the photographers among you. This unique setting contains a lot of old  buildings, many of them restored, and we will be free to move cars around the site all day, which will give everyone the opportunity to shoot cars individually and in groups with all manner of great backdrops. The extensive grounds include an area with built-in BBQ facilities, and there are plenty of areas where people will be able to spread out their own picnics, according to preference. In addition, we plan to have an Abarth Dealer on site, with some of the latest models on show, and some form of concours competition. 

Full details will be supplied once the event is confirmed. As there is a significant (fixed) cost to hire the venue, I need to be sure we have enough interest to make this financially viable, so please could you post here to indicate whether you would support this event or not.

Intrigued.... we are currently free and would be very interested in this. In fact you’ve started a domestic competition of ‘where on earth is Colin?’  Any idea of costs at this stage? A&J

We think we know, but withholding our guess to allow Colin to make a dramatic and grand announcement when he’s good and ready... I’ve a scratch card riding on the outcome....

I will announce the venue once I have actually confirmed our booking with them. l needed to make sure that we would have enough takers to cover the cost of hiring the place....... and the response within a matter of hours suggests that we do.

Target is for the cost to be a tenner a head, by the way.
