Yes Hazel we mustn't stereotype our friends at the SWBC as whilst I haven't met Dave DND its unlikely he fits all of the stereotype traits of a surfer - bleached blonde curly hair, suntaned six pack showing through open tropical shirt, a few beads around his wrist, sandles and a regular use of 'hey man', 'cool' and 'dude'!

Indeed Hugh, you are correct - I do not fit all of those stereotypes.

Need to find some beads for my wrist   :D

Well I knew you had a SOH as that is obligatory for buggy ownership.

SOH is indeed important for Buggy Ownership,

But hanging out catching a few rays is essential for SWBC membership   ;-)up

Looks like 2 red buggies escorting their shy green friend to the seaside with a beetle on looker!

The green one invited the others to come and play on the sand a bit of a bad influence on one of the red ones as it had to have a bath be for it was allowed back in to garage. ;D ;D ;D

Well children often mis behave if unattended so I blame the owners - looks like one of them has stripped off and is trying to sleep showing far too much leg !

If you added a surf board that would please Hazel or perhaps a couple of owners were out catching a wave ?

Sounds good to me Dave, I will be away in the first week of September but I'm good for any other months!

Is anyone else up for this????

Unfortunately evening meets are out for me but I do like the idea of a SW get together personally I would prefer getting together maybe three times a year at a couple shows like Devon dub fest and Dubs at the beach in Paignton and a pub meet sometime during the summer only a suggestion as I will try to go along with what everyone else wants. I think that less meets will give it a better chance of survival just a thought ;-)up
make it if you can.

I will definitely try to make it as long as I'm not at the other end of the country, however if it's persisting it down I may have to utilise alternative transport... I assume I wouldn't get lynched for turning up to a SWBC meeting in something other than a buggy?


As it stands:

September looks possible
October's OK
November might be tricky
December's the big holiday
It all takes time, time is money, money talks and talk is cheap

Dave sorry for putting my bit in here with you guy's,but,

If you made it the third Tues or whichever day in the third week (unless there are other local meets happening) you may entice some distant visitors along as they aren't doing any other club nights that may be occurring during the first week of the month  ;).

Just a thought.

Good call, I hadn`t really considered that one.

Difficult enough trying to find a suitable time for us lot without thinking ahead to other clubs - but it is a good point made  ;-)up

What do others think?
