Default Annual Meet 2020 - Details

Hi All,
Yes there will be a meet this year and it will be in the Scottish Borders Fri 5th - Sun 7th June. Brian G and I have just visited the proposed hotel today but will announce the location and further details this week when the hotel has decided the level of discount after some bargaining took place.
There will be a separate thread for accommodation discussions as this thread will provided details of the event itself.
We are sure that none of you will be disappointed with the venue and general location

David

Are all the cars going to get as dirty as Brian's GT?

I think we need fair warning if that is the case as it will affect which 8 I bring

I drove through the Scottish Borders yesterday en route to Edinburgh (moving on to Dumfries today), whilst earning some beer tokens.

The A696/A68 from Newcastle to Jedburgh was a fabulous road, albeit a bit busier on the Scottish side, barely saw another car on through the Redesdale section

There's a story behind that.......
Lets just say that the proposed hotel has excellent parking and washing facilities...... just as long as we don't do as the Bentley owners did which was not only to use the laundry facilities next to the car park for water supplies but also filched the hotels clean towels from it to clean their vehicles too

We're a better breed of people than those Bentley owners.
