I probably won't be in my car as I've been leaving it at home seen as free permanent parking is such a female dog near St James for me.



I will be there though!

Would it not be easier just to meet up near Sage then? Straight off the A1?

Stickers?? Who mentioned stickers? [:o)]

Any chance of posting some up for us lowly Scots? [:(] I'll sort out some numbers & get the money to you?

Failing that, if you do go down Gerard, instead of going to Crail - you need to pick some up!

In case anyone does get lost - we are ending up here:

Clicky



You see should the aerial map, move you mouse over it and you will see the OS map as you move your mouse. The place we are going hasn't been built yet on that photo, but look for the roundabout off the A1 where it says North Brunton - it's just around there.

Well, as Rich is currently driving home and I'm about to go out, let's try this - if anyone disagrees, please state it.. also please check this thread before you set off!!!



1. Meet at St James at 1:30pm and see what the situation is... hang around for a bit, and then...



2. Move onto the second site for 2pm (my last post has the map link)



One idea I've just had - to prevent people getting lost at junctions etc, can everyone put a folded up piece of A4 paper (into A5 size) or any bit of paper for that matter, on the back window (which isn't obstructing your vision!!)



This way, you can keep track of the people in front of you, and any stragglers not sure of who's who in a car park can be sure people are there for the meet (and not accost people who've just done their xmas shopping asking if they're there for a meet!)



Please remember, no loud music, no burn outs/hand brake turns etc etc otherwise we're bound to be turfed away by over zealous security guards/police (we're not sure if they're public roads on the business park or not yet)



Hopefully this will work and no one will get lost. Unless you're Graham. [:P]

Yup as Chris says I went to St James - car park was very quiet. Waited from 1.30 till 1.55 then ran up to Sage to meet Chris and Mike. For no-one to turn up.



Still had a nice blast round the roads and roundabouts near Sage in a 3.2 A3 and Cupra [:P][:D]
