Western meet up ?
« on: July 30, 2017, 08:39:06 PM »
Anyone up for a local meet in the western area e.g., Bristol/Somerset area, give me your thoughts if interested.

Looking for regular get together, some different venues, eats out etc

Get some local Abarths together for a chit chat,  meet, make new friends, all with one interest, Abarths !

Let me know, to see what members may be interested  ;)

In the early days, we had quite a good group in Bristol, and used to meet up at The Willy Wicket just off the A4174 in Downend, but this fell away, and it has been really hard to get Abarth Owners in the area to anything (including bigger events)............ but there are enough Abarths on the road (and owners on here), that it has to be worth another go. I am certainly up for it - though my challenge is that although I allegedly live in Bristol, I work away a lot, so am not that reliable an attendee myself!

We have meets in Plymouth, perhaps if we can get a group from Bristol and Devon/Cornwall we could all meet up at Exeter Services or something? About half way for both of us distance wise.

That's a shame then, I know the willy wicket very well, used to live in Bradley Stoke, but now live WSM, I also away a lot for work, so it will only be weekends for me, will give it some more thought

That sounds good idea, Exeter, services could be a good meet point, perhaps find a pub nearby to jct 30 M5, will take I look about, I know there is a pub on way towards exmouth not far from jct 30/31 M5,
Will make more investigations  👍

How about this venue - Cat & Fiddle Inn

https://www.google.co.uk/search?q=cat+and+fiddle+inn+exeter&ie=UTF-8&oe=UTF-8&hl=en-gb&client=safari

Anyone up for an afternoon meet at the above mentioned on either on Sun 24th Sept or Sun 1st Oct, just a get together, drink/snack to eat and get to know and chat with other owners of the Abarth models,
Let me know which dates are convenient and names so we can get a list going 👍

Sunday 1st sounds good.... I'll pop a post up on the local group and try to get a few interested.

Perhaps we could create an event on the AOC facebook page too to help?
