I too have seen this on another posting on the site. A year on has anything developed? The old Noggin at Cranham does not appear in Slice anymore and with a few members concentrated around Chelt/Glos is there enough to start a new one. Demonbluedays I sent you a pm about the very same. Any news?

Victor,

I did get your PM but with being home in south wales its been a mad house!

Sadly the noggin never went much further than Keith (Myredscimitar) posting in Slice for interest as well as putting the information up on here gathering interest for a new noggin. I for one would certainly be up for it!

Fair point Phil. Very much against my wife's wishes I will pick a venue and date and post it to see who turns up. She thinks I am a boring old fart if I want to go to a "car meeting" but then I warned her BEFORE we got married so I am in the clear. Early warning is that I will be looking at Cheltenham and possibly near to the M5 for easy access.

I say stick it at The Pheasant on the B4063 just before/after Harry Buckland's (Depending on if you come from the Gloucester end or Cheltenham end of the 4063).... failing that theres always some pub of some description in Gloucester and/or Cheltenham to base it in

I know the Pheasant and I am free both evenings. That's the 20th and 21st to avoid any confusion with which week.

Have been looking for indoor place for my 2 cars for ages. Do I see a possible shared facility with shared costs?

about 15 mins from Brockworth (where I'm looking) which is 10 mins closer than the barn I currently rent :-)
