The next nationwide OOF meet?
« on: 30 June 2007, 21:55:12 »

I met up with Jody (Nemesis_v6) at Woolacombe today and we got around to discussing another big nationwide meet following the success of the Lakes. We said how good it would be to have one in Woolacombe as it's such a good ideal place for a meet. Anyway, ex-Mrs bob.dent said there was an excellent camp site aimed at adults situated about a mile away from the seafront, so we went to check it out and it really is superb - absolutely ideal for an OOF meet. Its set in the Devon hills above Woolacombe and is about a mile walk down to the fantastic Woolacombe beach where all sorts of activities take place but the main one being surfing. There's a great pub/restaurant overlooking the beach and a couple of other good pubs and amusement arcade nearby. The camp site is called Europa Park which you can check out at www.europapark.co.uk . They cater for tents, caravans, camper vans and also offer their own log cabins for rent, and plenty of electric hook ups. We also spoke to the site manager and said we were thinking of planning an OOF meet there and he said we would be more than welcome as they cater mainly for adults and groups (although children are welcome) and said he would even give us a special group rate. They also have a clubhouse on site with an excellent bar/restaurant and pool tables. Anyway, here are a few pics I took this afternoon (click on thumbnails for larger picture).

Ok, so who's up for it? I know it's a bit of a trek for those of you further North and in Bonnie Scotland but if we make it a 3 day event I reckon it'll be well worth it :y :y

I think distance may put off a lot of people.... ...its about 4 - 5hrs for me, so 8 - 9 for the north england lads, and 12hrs + for the scots....

Yep, depending on dates i'd go to another. This time I will take the 2.2 to a meet, its not been to one yet apart from the one here at Brackley.

Looks like a great site  :y

Looks a really good place. Have cast my vote. Lovely part of the country and only 6 hours from St Austell.

Not really central though is it  ::)

Maybe we should meet in Stratford.  More central and we can educate people about Shakespeare.  Obviously needs to be done after Brian on BB.  :o ;D ;D

I'd be up for it. Be good to get down that part of the world again. As my best man reminded me during his speech we did the journey from Camberley in a shade over 2 hours once in an MG Montego when we were 17 and stupid! Oh, happy, happy pre-GATSO days  ;D
