calling all skyline owners in yorkshire and surrounding counties

firstly id like to introduce myself as the new north east area rep working along side hesh (im his *****:whip: ), weve indentified a problem with the north east area , which is the space that it actualy covers and the lack of regular meets so to try and sort this out weve taken a different approach on things,......

im going to TRY and orginise a regular meet for the yorkshire area once a month (second sunday of each month). i know the lads up north (newcastle sunderland) have regular meets up at the angel but we need something a little closer to home

im not trying to distance or split the area as we will still be making regular visits further north for a big meet including the entire north east (every 3 months) and of course for special runs like the famous bragg run (which is currently in the pipeline so keep ya eyes open for that).

so basicly just want to see what sort of response we get on here if people are interested and your thoughts

im expecting things to start slow but hopefuly with persistance the word will spread and eventualy we will have a decent turn out.

theres no mininum requirements to be there you dont have to know how to strip engines and all that , you just need a skyline , its somewhere we can put names to faces have a gossip and learn things from each other

get back to me with any ideas and names of any1 interested and if u dont see a name here that u reconise as being in our area post it and il pm them

hi ..just sticking my nose in "where it aint needed"

if deggrs runs a meeting on the third sunday of every month ..then if its alright by him perhaps we could join up.

however there arethree other sundays where we could set up something , in an adjacent but sl;ightly different area...as that may give people more options, if work or other stuff gets in their way......

just athought,....

ok mate i see what u are saying but can u see waht im sayin
weve indentified a problem with the north east area , which is the space that it actualy covers and the lack of regular meets so to try and sort this out weve taken a different approach on things,......

im going to TRY and orginise a regular meet for the yorkshire area once a month (second sunday of each month). i know the lads up north (newcastle sunderland) have regular meets up at the angel but we need something a little closer to home



as the guys from up there aint really gona want to be putting extra couple hundred of miles on the clock each month nor do the blokes in the above mentioned area
weve indentified a problem with the north east area , which is the space that it actualy covers
so rahter than put others off actualy coming to meets were trying to make them more local,

if u feel theres not enough activity (meets) up there let myself or hesh know and we can sort this out,

not getting away from why i was made area rep long side hesh is to help out, im not turning my back on the lads further north im still here to try and help the meets up there to,
im not trying to distance or split the area as we will still be making regular visits further north for a big meet including the entire north east (every 3 months) and of course for special runs like the famous bragg run (which is currently in the pipeline so keep ya eyes open for that).
so put ya thoughts across and we can see what we can do

Maybe we could continue with localised meets once a month (ie) Angel meet! and also have a once or twice a year Area meet?

have to admit i love the angel meets but as it costs me over £100 to come up each time i would like to see some meets nearer our area too....

why cant we have both ? there are LOADS of people in the north yorkshire area that have skylines and there just aren't enough decent meets local to us tbh
