Looking good - There's a couple on this post and a couple more on the elan post. It looks like Sunday lunchtime is preferred, so I'll check a date with the landlord in the next couple of days and post up a date, venue time etc. later this week. If I can work out how I'll pm all the respondents (unless it runs into hundreds... :wink: )

Hi Matt,
I would be up for either a Saturday or Sunday meeting (depending on work shifts :( )
... and providing everybody is happy to talk to someone who does not actually turn up in an Elan. Cant see mine being back on the road for a while.
Thanks for taking the effort.

Paul.

I hope to get the pub to check with the landlord in the next couple of days and then aim for Sunday the 22nd or 29th - watch this space. And as my Elan isn't otr and my Elite is in for its MoT next Saturaday I probably won't be in a Lotus either :cry: :cry: -but thats not a reason not to turn up!

Right - onwards and upwards! I've checked with hte landlord and he is happy for some Lotus's to grace his carpark.

The date is: Sunday 29th April
Time: Lets say 12:30 onwards....
The venue is:
The Four Horseshoes, Long Sutton, Hants, RG29 1TA

It's a nice country pub with a large car park just south of Odiham in the north east of Hampshire.

The pub opens at 12:00ish - sometime closer to 12:15 so don't b too early!

Also they do a reasonable (both taste and price) Sunday roast so if you want food let me know and I'll let them know.

See you all there!
