It would be nice if we could get a regular monthly meet down this way though - trouble is we are spread out a lot more than most   :(

Maybe we could have it somewhere different every month?? Hopefully the first meet could be in my garage as mine ain't running yet! ;D

Most of the original SWBC members are not actually on the net, making a head count and arranging anything somewhat difficult, and I think its one of the reasons the club kinda fizzled out before. Also, unlike the other clubs, where most members are within a 50 mile radius with good roads, we cover many counties with crap roads and that big snowbound lump called Dartmoor in the middle.

So, where are we all then?

We seem to be spread out mainly along the coast, with the largest clusters around North Cornwall or East Devon.  Geographically, Okehampton is probably centralised, bearing in mind we spread from Bristol to Lands End, but anyone down here will know that for the colder months, the North side of the Moors is not going to make for an easy to get to regular meet. South of Dartmoor along the centralised line puts me, in Torbay not far from the middle, but as there are more members around Exeter than Plymouth, that would shift a centralised spot along a bit to, say, Newton Abbott.

Anyone up for starting a regular venue then? Needs to be a regular spot so you get known and people come looking for you.

So, looking for a good pub with Parking and access, would give us something like the Penn Inn, which is smack in the middle of the new Bypass roads, so should make for an easy place for most to find.

Anyone else got any thoughts?

I would be up for travelling to there for a meet! I haven't got a working buggy yet so I would have to bring the Audi but it would be nice to meet some other buggers! 8)

Well I think if you are prepared to travel that distance for a meet, then I think it only right I join you at the bar for a bevvie of some description.

Let me have a quick word with the Penn Inn first, just to see what nights they have free, as don`t really want to be gatecrashing other clubs meeting there.

I thought a SWBC meet would have to be at a surf club?

True . . .

But nothing to say a surf club cannot be inland,

besides, Penn Inn Pub is not far from the estuary I launch the boat from when sea fishing . . . . So technically, could be accepted   ;-)up
