awesome idea, it would be great to see all the local clubs together

i dont think forced entry is a great idea, i think it will put a lot of people off unless its something menial like 1, but whos going to want to spend all day on the "gate" so to speak.

maybe just make it free to get in but get a group of people to walk round with buckets or something like that?

The gate is Man'd by the forestry commission mate.

I'd much prefer to pay for parking out the way than going to a large trading car park.

It does'nt want turning into some max power etc kind of meet so i'd say to keep it VAG Only and with it being in a secluded area, Only folks on the Vag forums will know(unless some p***k wants to spoil it).


Whats your thoughts?

I'll see what the parking costs are when i over there on sunday mate.

I dont think a couple of quid should hurt the pocket though.

Plus high lodge has things for peeps to do other than look at cars.

Mountain biking
Go Ape(high ropes)
Cafe
Also a few climbing frames around for the little'uns if folks wish to bring them

have you ever been to a gig at thetford lee? i havent but im wondering if you have to pay parking and ticket cost, or if there is a way round the ticket cost if its an event there.

another thing, there's one of those yellow flappy things on the way out that you have to drive over. not good

Yeah, i been to a Gig there mate. Sure it was just the price of tickets we paid though, not parking.

Think we'll do well to find somewhere big enough where there is'nt speedbumps these days mate. Even the cambs meet location has some that i scrape on and i not silly low. Like someone has said, i think you can drive round them at thetford.

sounds good, as long as its under a fiver i doubt people will have a problem with it.

i didnt realise that the space would be privately owned, i assumed you meant it would be more like a meet. sounds good then dude

What do you guys think to having 1 mass meet involving all clubs around east anglia?

Dubgen
fendubbers
ec-dc
dodgy dubbers
all dubz klub
deutscheworks
dub suffolk

Now obviously it would have to be located centrally between the lot of us so first thoughts are High lodge park, Thetford. Plenty of parking in the forest.

Also the day should be in the spring summer time and i've checked that theres nothing happening on the 16th of May so maybe the mags might be interested in making a showing too.

What you think then?

sound great

unless you want every one in somewhere like downham more central to everyone??

is suffolk dubbers another local forum......a guy who's hair i cut has a splitty and im sure i've heard him mention that one, i'll ask him when i next see him. One thing i would say about Thetford Forest is the car parks ar all quite small and dotted around the woods. From memory they dont have one big area. The forest carparks would make wicked back drops for piccies tho . You pay for your parking at a machine before you exit like the Grafton Centre, i'm sure they'd sort something in the office where you pay then instead or something

Those yellow flappy things sound worse than they are.. You're guaranteed to hit either your exhaust or petrol tank on the way out

Really good idea Lee, give me a shout if you need any help
