      Would anyone in the UK be interested in a meet-up with their cars?

      If anyone is interested, post your general location below and maybe we could organise a place that is relatively accessible for everyone.

      Or maybe some regional meets could be organised if there’s enough interest.

      Just putting ideas out there

      List of owners interested so far:

      1) CallumCarr - Gillingham, Kent - South East
      2) JCJ - Clitheroe, Lancashire - North West
      3) ElSmoko - Southampton, Hampshire - South East
      4) Prince Ludwig - London - South East
      5) n968412L - Holcombe Brook - North West
      6) Rex Norman - Northampton - East Midlands
      7) Martin Adamson - Newcastle - North East
      8 ) Andrew Dytham - Nottingham - Midlands
      9) Guy Paddick - Ashford, Kent - South East
      10) James Rosier - Aylesbury, Buckinghamshire
      11) Jarecki Pcp Magol - Windsor - South East
      12) Robby Nethercott - The Wirral, Merseyside - North West
      13) Simon Taylor - Oban - West Scotland
      14) Radek Szal - Cambridge - East
      15) Alex Northam - Huddersfield - Yorkshire and the Humber
      16) Alex Hannam - Cambridge - East
      17) Robbie - Sleaford, Lincolnshire- East
      18) Todea Ionut - Aylesbury, Buckinghamshire
      19) Nick Harwood - Cheshire - North West
      20) Edmund - Cotswolds - South

      Ripley Castle near Harrogate as a venue? Easy to get to for our North West and North East owners.

      It looks like a nice venue; I’d have to stay up there for a night to make it worth my while as I’m from the south east.

      The UK didn’t seem that big until I’ve thought about this haha!

      I’m going to add a list of members who are interested and their general location to my first post. Maybe if a full UK meet didn’t work out, it would at least be a good way of seeing who is in our regions.

      why do I have a bad feeling I've got a long drive ahead of me.... although can't complain we had a least on get together in Accrington. If anyone can remind me how to post pictures since photobucket became ransomeware, I'll stick my photos up...

      Maybe we could organise something that's somewhere in the midlands so that it's relatively accessible for everyone

      The Phaeton Club in Poland host an impressive yearly meet up - I think this year there was something like 50-60 cars! I don't think i've seen that many separately let alone in a big group

      UPDATE:

      I have shared this thread on the 'Phaeton Owners Club UK' Facebook page so there will be some additions of owners through there.

      https://www.facebook.com/PhaetonOwnersClubUK/

      I've added a map to my first post so it shows roughly how close everyone is to each other. I think this could be a good basis for deciding a meeting location and also as a tool for organsing occasional regional meets if people are interested. Early days at the moment anyway

      UPDATE:

      It looks like we now have a good level of interest in attending a meet up.

      It's become clear that we're all quite spread out so I'm trying to come up with a central location which is relatively accessible for all.

      The Leicester/ Nottingham area appears to be a good compromise with a maximum 3 hour journey time for everyone except one of the owners who lives in north west Scotland. This area also appears ideal as it is alongside the M1 which makes access relatively easy.

      I was thinking that either a pub or a nearby landmark with a large car park would be a good place.

      Hi guys. I did come to the last Southern England get-together in 2013. Can't be sure whether I'd be able to make the one you're mooting, but put me down as a possible!

      Thanks

      It would be great if you could make it. I’m currently contacting a few places to work out some options.

      Hopefully the list above will be useful for organising smaller regional meets in the future.
