WELCOME


We are MG-ROVER - MERSEYSIDE, we are a group of
MG-ROVER owners and mg-rover.org Members who
organise the monthly Merseyside Meets and events
in the Merseyside Area.




ABOUT US

It all started in early 2008 when Andypower decided
to post up a topic in the England - North section of
mg-rover.org called "whos in merseyside" in order to
see who was local to him in order to arrange a meet
of some kind, in the summer of that year ROVER-25X
set up the first topic of what would eventualy become
the Merseyside Meet, since then we have become the
longest running monthly meet on mg-rover.org, we
have held 53 Monthly Meets, 4 Christmas Meals, 3
Track Days and 3 DYNO Days and 7 Tunnel Runs.

Members from all over the UK have attended the Meet
and we average 10 cars per month, our Record is 23
Cars which was at the Tunnel Run 2 meet and we are
confident that we can beat this record in 2012 so come
on down and enjoy the fun atmosphere with a fantasctic
bunch of helpful people at the longest running Meet on
mg-rover.org.





ABOUT THE MEET

This Meet is a one off for 2012 in order for us to view
the Blackpool Illuminations, we are meeting up at Marton
Mere Holiday Park at 18:30 and then at 19:30 we are
going to board a Bus to view the lights, it is a return trip
and we will end up back at our cars, with any luck there
will be an open top bus weather permiting.

When we arrive will shall wait for everyone to turn up,
there will be a Merseyside Meet Banner on one of the
cars so you will know its us, once we have viewed the
lights we are planning to go an have a drink and somthing
to eat at one of the local establishments.


Remember that it will be late October so remember to
wrap up warm, an umbrella might not go a miss in your
car just to be on the safe side.

These Meets are Family Friendly and we make Members
Spouses and Partners feel very welcome, we normaly
find locations with Playgounds so that members with
Children are able to attend, all the Locations have Baby
changing facilities but we cannot asure that there will be
any facilities available at this event.

Don't confuse these meets with the local Chav Cruises
down at your local retail park, yes we hang arround in
car parks but we don't do it in the dark or act anti-socialy,
the age range of our regular Members is 19-60, anyone is
welcome to attend, there are no age barriers.





INTRODUCE YOURSELF

If you are new to the Meet then please introduce yourself
to the group, in the past we have had a few cars arrive
and the owners just sit in there cars and eventualy drive
off, we have no idea who you are until you tell us as we
get a lot of MG-ROVER drivers at the meet locations who
are not there for the Meet hence why we don't ask everyone
so please jump out of your car and say hello to the group.


There are a lot of MG-ROVER owners all over the Merseyside,
Midlands and genral North West area that attend the meet
and we gladly welcome more, if you know any other Members
on mg-rover.org who live in the region or have any family
or friends who own an MG-ROVER then please let them know
about us, if you are a Member of another MG-ROVER owners
Club or on-line forum then it would be fantastic if you could
post up a link for our facebook Group and inform there
Members of the Merseyside Meet.

Many thanks to the 3 people who made the effort last night for the Illuminations Meet,
everyone else realy missed out, it was fantastic, we were on an open top bus for over
2 hours and we did the full 6 mile stretch, bus took us all back to our cars and it was
the best £7.50 going, very relaxing without the pressure of bumper to bumper traffic,
cracking view of the lights too. ;)
