For those looking for nearby accommodation (cant vouch for any, as never used them)

B&B - http://www.brackleyoaks.co.uk/ - about 150yrds from venue, heard its really expensive. Few others on Banbury Road, about 1.5m from venue, parking often an issue though.
Crown Hotel - http://www.thecrownhotelbrackley.co.uk/ - Town Centre, about 1.5m away, heard conflicting reports
Premier Inn at Brackley Hatch/Silverstone - about 6m away

If Entwood/AA or any other pikey (:P) thinks of coming, 2 caravan sites, one on outskirts near Tesco, other just the other side of Turweston.

Post by: TheBoy on 03 March 2019, 10:19:05
Might be a Travelodge at M40 services, about 6m away, but would suggest the Premier Inn at the Brackley Hatch/Silverstone is a nicer environment, and has a (food orientated) pub The Green Man on the same site

I'm struggling at the moment due to it being a bank holiday, and the money aspect,as we get a very good deal for bank holidays, and it's handy as IL be off to varcheland soon afterwards.

Went for a wander round there at lunchtime, but before it was lunch for nursery.  Blimey that carpark has shrunk.  I guess the do gooders insist there must be a million ultra wide spaces for biff badge holders, so they can get their wheelchairs out so they can play rugby...

Yes....come on all you Omega Owners....this may possibly be one of the last meetings to show off your Omega. They are fast disappearing, but even if you don't have an Omega, and are still Forum active , come along. Always good for a chat and a laugh. :)

I have just been around to the Rugby club.....its got a carpark for about sixty cars, similar to my Wycombe venue. Also a nice big clubroom upstairs, with a south facing balcony, and a kitchen. Not a comfy as Wycombe, but still good.
Now.....my son has offered to open the bar if enough people want a drink. Obviously drink/drive limits. I don't want to muck his day up if no-one uses the bar. We can do hot sausages in rolls as per Wycombe if interested. Dave the Builder has offered to bring a few fattening foods !!! Mrs TB has offered to help swmbo in the kitchen. We will do some snacky bits, and I expect some rolls of some sort.
If the bar is not likely to be required, my son has said we could either bring our own booze/drinks, or he will get cans of coke out, etc, or wine.
TB.....is H coming, or the other half. Love to see them again.
Title: Re: Confirmation Brackey Meet
Post by: VXL V6 on 30 April 2019, 17:38:02
Sounds good.  :y

Won't be requiring the bar personally but sausage baps and pop sounds good - will obviously contribute towards the costs.
Title: Re: Confirmation Brackey Meet
Post by: dave the builder on 30 April 2019, 17:58:10
I doubt many people will be able to drink alcohol  :-\
does the bar sell cold pop Mr Terbert ?

cakes and donuts are not "fattening"   ???
Title: Re: Confirmation Brackey Meet
Post by: Tainted Tony on 30 April 2019, 19:35:14
We shall put out some cans of beer, some wine, and fizzy cans, etc. Saves my son having to do the bar.
All food and drink will be donations, the same as we did at Wycombe.
If there is any money over, and also as we are not paying for the venue, if anyone wants to make a donation, my son and daughter are doing a 'Moonlight ascent of Snowdon' in June, in aid of the Altzheimers Society, as my mum died from the disease, and my best friend, (my daughters godfather) who taught them/me all about hiking, climbing, camping, etc, has the disease, and sadly has now has had to be sectioned, due to becoming violent.

On a lighter note....fingers crossed on the weather, but at least we have a clubroom :)
Oh....please NO drifting, wheelspins, etc, in the carpark !!!!! :)

Been there, done that :P.

Although members should also be aware that there is a kiddies playground about 50yrds away, and probably 4 or 5 more within 800yrds, and snowflake parents cannot control their little darlings, so worth paying attention.

Those members travelling southbound on the M40 need to be aware that the speed camera in a village Farthinghoe between Jnc11 and Brackley is usually pretty sensitive. And those travelling from the M1 need to know there is a camera right at the top of the hill on the climb from the M1, and another just past Silverstone.

Thanks to everyone for trying to make it. I think Wycombe meets surpassed what we can expect nowadays, but Brackley is quite central....but even if you don't have an Omega, pop along and lets see what you are in now !!
Chris will be cooking hot sausages in rolls, we have French bread, with egg mayo rolls, etc, small sausage rolls....Dave the builder is bringing donuts and cakes.....and there will be soft drinks. I am hoping a certain local chap will come along (not TB) with his lovely wife, who I haven't seen for a couple of years.
I think my grandson is coming with his K10 Micra, which he is doing up....the car is 26 years old, and has 45,000 on the clock. Also his Smobey, which he has customised, and gets calls from car shows to exhibit it on stands along with the likes of Bugatti's Ferrari's etc !!!!!! :)
What a bonus, if TB brings the Tech2....a great opportunity to get a tune up.....
Look forward to seeing you all :)

It was clearly tricky to get all the cars in one shot, even with the drone. Here is a pic from the steps,

My camera clock was an hour slow, both were taken at about 1.40pm.

Great meeting, Tony.  Let's do it again soon, while we still have roadworthy Omegas. I doubt mine will last much longer.

Correction, time was 12.40pm. It was a rolling event, 11am-5pm, so some members left early, and others arrived later. Weather was overcast and cold for May.

Obviously I think its a great venue :P

Thanks to Terbs and Mrs Terbs for organising, and sorting food and drink.  Also thanks to Dave the Builder for all the sugary snacks.

Was nice to see everyone again, and meet some new faces.

Roll on the next one.  Come on, pull yer finger out Terbs ;).


But best of all, Mrs Terbs still hasn't forgiven him over the freezer thing ;D

A big thank you to Tony and Christine for sorting the venue, food and refreshments, and to Dave the Builder for the cakey bits.  :y  It's nice to have somewhere to retreat to and have a cuppa when it gets a bit chilly.  :y

A great meet, good to catch up with everyone again and to meet some new faces.  :y  Good to see RobseyMV6's V8 LS1 close up to appreciate the work involved to get the finished article.  :y

A big thank you to TB and VXL V6 for sorting my radio mute.  :y  Seeing my NCDC in a million bits was quite unnerving.  ;D
