Post by: AndyRobinson on December 01, 2014, 07:11:34 PM
Great Show - always a great turn out of buggies (well a part from 2014 when the show was cancelled due to hurricanes!)
Usually a cruise down the A3 (and yes Hindhead tunnel!)

FREE entry for buggies!

Sunday 9th August.
Southsea Common, Portsmouth. PO5 3AA

For sure.... I'm there!

Now we have swanage done, I was going to remind folks about BeachBuggin'

Apart from last year's (due to a bit of wind and drizzle) this is always a great show and busy too with buggies (since they are free to get in!) We often see a few buggies that we wouldn't normally see at other shows/meets.  ;-)up

Seriously considering it... Given that I've only been as far as B&Q since we got our buggy and the everlasting house project WILL be completed by then... ;-)up I just so hope the weather will be kind because I really don't want to have to use the roof...

If we do go, is there an opportunity for those of us travelling from the west to cruise down together?
Title: Re: Beachbuggin 2015 - August 9th
Post by: Hunter on August 02, 2015, 09:40:12 AM
For those that want to head in from the A3

Leaving Ockham bites cafe (Old Ln Gardens, East Horsley, Cobham KT11 1NN, Wisley lakes) A3 slip rd south bound off of J10 M25.

You should be fueled up (car and you, cafe is open from about 08.00) ready to leave there 09.30 sharp for a run down the A3.
We will be stopping about 3mls after the Hindhead tunnel at the large shell garage for a swift pitstop, then onward to Southsea aiming to arrive realistically about 11.00.

This is what we've aimed for in the past, feel free to update or suggest alternatives.

My Buggy is still an unknown for this as its in bits waiting for the head to come back from menders and also the weather.

Cheers H

Excellent stuff Mel, are we seeing you at the show or are you meeting us at Wisley first thing?
Title: Re: Beachbuggin 2015 - August 9th
Post by: Melly B. on August 06, 2015, 12:57:42 PM
Not planning to meet at Wisley, but you might see the 2 of us driving south on A3 near the Petersfield/Winchester A272 junction around 10.20am-ish. We'll look out for your convoy, but don't stop for us.

Got the MOT booked for Saturday morning as is is a tad out. Thats if I get the sump back on and the oil pressure issue has gone away.

Hopefully all goes well and we should be down for about 11 ish.

Afternoon Chaps

Looks like you'll all be passing by my little village (Thursley) around 10 as I live just before the Hindhead Tunnel.  I'll try and get on the access bridge and get a video of you all as you pass by, then hopefully join the cruise down.

Should be an awesome sight!

Had a good day down portsmouth. We went to see the sea and everyone was gone when we got back at 4. Fancied mingling with some faces from swanage. Bumped into birmingham mantaray and chris. Overtaken on m27 by 3 at once on the way home. I do like that buggy with the gt40 stripe.

Came over from the Isle of Wight for the day. Had a good time, nice to see some familiar faces and catch up. Was one of the biggest shows  we have been to for a while. Here are a few photos.

Here is my contribution.

I was standing on the bridge at Thursley on the A3 with my family (and my buggy) watching the cruise go past.  I filmed it on my camera that was zoomed in so the quality isn't great.

I caught up with the cruise at the fuel station at Liphook and it was an awesome cruise down, especially through Portsmouth.

The show was really good, the weather was great and I even had a paddle in the see with my daughter!

Brilliant day had all round.

It was also good to put some faces to the names I see on here.

Hope everyone had a great day, see you next year.  Although my buggy did struggle a little to get back, think it may be running on three cylinders, possible HT leads!

There was plenty of Go Pro filming on the way down so someone must have a good video of the tunnel. I think we're all waiting for the edit!

Post by: AndyRobinson on August 15, 2015, 11:38:42 AM
I got some on the go pro. Am just waiting on hunters coverage to us both sets of filming by to edit together. Didn't get much in the tunnel myself as  every one seemed to stay back and not roar past the cameras at all.
