It was put to me in the last week that the numbers for the Teesside meet are not very big and that there had been possible interest in combining the Teesside meet with members from the Newcastle area that is at a half way point.

Looking at the mapping the best place I can see that is roughly 20 miles either side of Newcastle and Thornaby is Dalton Retail Park which has a large parking area and is just off the A19.

I said I would put it to both sets of members as well as on the .Org forum as well to see if it would be worth doing.

Please let me know your opinions as there is no point in doing it if there is no interest.

This is the location from the Dalton Park website.

I'd be up for that. I've organised a few meets over on the Primera Owners Club at Dalton Park, and even on a busy Sunday, there is still loads of room in the huge car park to get all the motors together for some nice piccys. Lots of eats/drinks/toilets make it an good location too.

Nothing concrete as yet there just hasn't been that much interest from what I've seen. Yes some of the Newcastle lads have said yes but I've not heard much from the Teesside lads. I'm hoping to ask them at the next meet which reminds me it's going to be moved back a week so not to collide with fathers day.

Is it worth getting a date up for a meet at Dalton Park? There seems to be a bit of frustration around at the lack of interest/attendees at the Barrage, so could be a good idea to try a new approach and location. Just a suggestion.

As it stands, I could do 22nd or 29th.

It's about 5 full days since I posted the above, and no replies.

Seems obvious to me that there is currently zero interest in NE meets. Shame like.

Sorry about the lack of replies I've had other bits and pieces on my mind. As for the dalton idea there wasn't enough of us at the last meet to be able to discuss it that's why nothing had been decided as yet. I must admit I did have a bit of a rant over on .org as about 5 people said they were coming but never turned up because of things that cropped up. It's not as if there is no interest in the meets but as Ross says its always the same faces that turn up like me Graeme, Andy and most of the time Sav. It's never been a massive group following as members have sold their cars and then decided not to come anymore. I'm determined to keep it running every month but I'd like to have more than just 2 other members before we make the dalton decision.

No need to apologise mate, it wasn't just your reply I was expecting.

Still think it might be tiome to firm up a meet at Dalton Park and see where we go from there.

22nd would be good for me, but I know that might not suit some people.

After the cancellation of the last Teesside meet due to lack of numbers, is now the time to try and get something organised for Dalton Park?

Geographically it might suit more of the northern NE members, me included.

I organise the NE meets on the Primera Owners Club, and stuck a thread up yesterday for a meet at Dalton Park on 11th November.

We haven't had a meet since April, but already there are 8 names on the list. I've pm'd everyone on that forum who I think might attend to notify them of the meet, and I'll send regular reminder pm's out in the run up to the meet.

It's a good location, to which people can bring their partners and kids, safe in the knowledge that they can go wander the shops and get something to eat, which keeps them out of the way for a couple of hours!! :wink:

I still think the time is right to at least try and organise a Rover meet here.
