Zedfest weekend Yorkshire - Cancelled

Post by Deano1712 » Sat 14 Feb, 2015 11:29

We are planning a weekend meeting this year in Yorkshire. This follows interest in the roads of this fine county generated by the Le Tour last year, discussed in this thread: http://www.zroadster.net/forum/viewtopi ... 01#p392001

We are staying in a hotel in Wetherby - Mercure Wetherby http://www.accorhotels.com/gb/hotel-832 ... ndex.shtml. The hotel has loads of rooms available for that weekend, at £70 per night. Please book the hotel directly and pop a pm or post on here to confirm you are in.

One day will be a drive through the North Yorkshire Moors and lunch on the coast. Other day will be in the Dales. Maurice will be sorting the Dales route and I will be sorting the NYM day. The roads are great and there are two fine days out for us :D

I'm interested. Will it be Friday night and Saturday night in hotel, or just Saturday night?

Put me down for just the Friday night, please.

I have updated the main post above. We have a hotel chosen now so you all need to book directly here http://www.accorhotels.com/gb/hotel-832 ... ndex.shtml

There are loads of rooms available and they are £70 per night. When you have booked please let me or Maurice know by PM. We will be driving from ~9am Saturday so you have the choice of joining us for both days, or one, and staying in the hotel one night or two.

There are 15 cars registered so far. Unclear who is staying over and which days so it would be good if can all let me or Maurice know what your individual plans are.

Cars registered interest:

Pardon my stupidity but I assume the drives will be on the sat and sun (20&21) so the Friday is just an optional stay over?

We are up for both days, just not sure about 2 nights babysitters....

Yes that's right. Depends on how far people are travelling. We will meet 9am Saturday to get going so if you can make that from home there's no need to stay over the first night. That's my personal plan since its 15 mins from home for me, for example. I will most likely call in to the hotel on the Friday for a beer if there are a few staying there.

This thread has gone quiet...if anyone has actually booked the hotel can you let me know? If people don't fancy a full weekend maybe we can do a one-day event.

Need to discuss with the Missus tonight think we will stay the Saturday night but still need to get it booked.

I will let you know we have booked later on.

Any ideas of the routes yet, hopefully we can get some Tesco momentum 99 octane on the way!

Looks like we will only be able to make the Sunday in the Dales on the 21st, depends on what time you are starting on the Sunday morning.We could get to Wetherby for about 9:00am? Family commitments prevent the overnight stay on Saturday unfortunately. :cry:

Keep me posted with the route for the Dales.

Thanks

Mike

This is such a shame because (1) these are some of the best roads ever; (2) having been on a Deano cruise they are fast and fun. I am more than happy to do something one or either day if you fancy a trip out

Grunt.

We who drive these old Beemers share a love of something that wont be around for ever.

The politicians will run us off the road with CO2, fuel costs, insurance fees and just not allowing us to have some good old Bavarian Blare coming out of the tail pipes.

I don't know all of you yet but if we just say " nah can't be bothered" then we will all eventually end up on e-bay as parts for $uck £ll.

I am still up for taking 2mm off my rears on Sunday 21st June (the missus may have other ideas....... :D :D :D :D :D )

Yours truly

Hi, with Zedfest cancelled if some of you all are at a loose end there is not a bad car show taking place in Stokesley (A172 south of Teesside) on Saturday the 20th June. Organised by the local Rotary Club the proceeds (£5 to get in - just turn up and pay on the gate) go towards good causes & charities. The Showground has a parade ring with car groups being invited to drive round for a few minutes to show off. Its only a short walk into Stokesley town with good places to eat, drink and shop. Also if its a good day the town is right at the start of a good 20 miles of driving road up and over the North York Moors to Helmsley. The TVR boys usually turn up would be good to line up a few Zeds against them.
Drop a note if interested if numbers are good I can drop a note to the organiser on potential numbers.
Cheers

I'm a bit confused about the talk of apathetic members as there is 17 cars on the list. This seems quite good to me. Or are we aiming for Glastinbury proportions.
