Knutsford, Cheshire - Sunday 10th July 2011
This is our annual outing to the BMWCC event at Tatton Park and is one of the few BMWCC events that you can exhibit at without being a member of the club. I will be organising the usual bacon butty/sausie sarnie meet before the show, followed by a procession into the park. We will hopefully also be doing the usual "bimble" and early evening meal afterwards. More details will be posted as an when they emerge.tattonpark.org.uk wrote:Tatton Park once again plays host to the largest gathering of BMWs in the North of England. Concourse competition, a huge Show & Shine competition, BMW race cars on display, register displays, plus the new MINI Register, cars for sale, specialist trade stands, auto-jumble etc., there is something for everyone, and all BMW owners are welcome to join the fun. With a children's fairground and all the attractions that Tatton has to offer, it's a fun day out for all the family. Call 0161 678 2088 or visit www.bmwcardclubgb.co.uk for more information

Sorry for the delay in getting this thread up, but work has been manic. I've started a new thread from Mike's so that I can update the lead post with details.
This will be at Booths in Knutsford between 9.15 and 10.15 am. Bacon butties and sausie sarnies are available from 9.30. We will leave in convoy for the show at 10.15 and this year we will try not to gum up the car park on our way out. Note that I don't take the most direct route to the park as the first set of traffic lights only allow about 3 cars out at a time - instead we will take a tour de block and go via a set of lights with a longer change on them.
The show is a BMWCC organised event which is open to non-members. We normally occupy an area marked out specifically for "Z" cars. There should be some trade stands, a coffee bar and a marquee. There is not an awful lot in the way of food at the show, so if you want snack, please bring them with you. If you are not doing the BBs, then directions to Tatton Park can be found here. There is a small entry fee for the show as well as the park entry fee of £5.
This will be a pleasant little amble out into the Peak District. Dave has planned us a route and will send out TomTom ITN files to those that want them. The route will bring us back to our evening venue, but there is scope to drive half the route and leave us after our pitstop. Please PM Dave L2 with your email address if you would like a copy of the ITN file.
The Evening Meal
This will be at the Plough & Flail in Mobberley and we have a table booked. I need to know numbers in advance for this, so if you would like to join us, please make sure to let me know, and I will see if they can squeeze you in.
How to take part
Please post up your interest here and I will maintain a list of whom we are expecting to attend. If you could also state your interest in BBs and EMs too, it will help me gauge numbers. If the start is too early and you can only make the show, then please still post your interest as we need to tell the organisers roughly how many cars we are bringing.
