    As promised, I thought I'd put up a thread for those people who are coming in from North Wales (or even Chester and the border lands travelling north) that want to meet before the rolling road day and convoy.

    The event start is ~9:00 according to Andy, and I figure that Asda in Queensferry (as previously discussed) is about 15 minutes from them. - How do people feel about 8:30 for a 8:45 roll-out?

    There's no need to get there as it opens, but I'd like to make a day of it and see as many cars on the rollers as I can. I also understand that people like a lie-in, so I'd be just as happy with 9:00 for a 9:30 arrival at the rolling road... that's probably when Andy will arrive anyway. :lol:

    Don't forget that we'd like to see as many Nissans as possible if Total Nissan are coming down. The cut-off for the deposit is today (14/3/10), but Andy might still add a few friends and associates who want to run their Skyline or Almera (as examples of other Nissans) to get the numbers up.
    I'm also sure that people are free to come and go during the day; so if you need to be somewhere in the morning or afternoon, come down and let us know (and we'll make sure you're on and off before you need to be away). :thumbsup:

    I'm happy with 8:30 in Queesnferry to get to the place for 9:00 - Do you know how you're getting there Rich? Are you coming up the M6. then the M56? Because you'd be coming past us in that case; it would be a bit of a detour to come into Wales and then back out, but you're welcome to come that way. - Also if you come up the A41 or A51 from the M6 towards Chester you'll end-up almost coming past us anyway.

    If anyone else (like Bob the Builder) is coming-up from the South, you might prefer to join-up with them and not detour in and out of Wales for the sake of the last 15 minutes of your journey.

    Yeah, I'm going to bring the shed. :thumb: I'm not expecting much from it, but as long as the fuelling is spot on there is no DET I'll be happy with that.

    So who am I waiting for tomorrow?

    The wife has me running errands in Ewloe before the day, but hopefully I'll still be there on time.

    Well... I'd like to appologise for that; it was a bit of a shamozzle. - It was nice to convoy anyway, even if I did get lost twice.

    Do people want a convoy for JTS? - I'm not sure who's coming down from North Wales, and I was planning to meeting up with the North West lot on the M6 somewhere... and they may be planning on meeting the J10 lot I'm not sure. - There was also talk of waiting for the Irish contingent to join-up with us.

    I was originally thinking of flogging it down early, then turning-and-burning, but as my wife has expressed an interest in tagging along for a weekend of camping and the anniversay meet, I'm now going at a sensible time with everyone else who's campling (or staying in a motel/hotel) too.
