April 7th yes now confirmed--evening meal, ever popular with members for great food and a good night of chat (not all a2 talk) Located in Birmingham at the fort dunlop development DUET CUISINE offers indian alongside italian food. Great secure parking and benefits from having a hotel in the same building for those of us traveling along way.http://www.duetcuisine.co.uk

July 21st - Yorkshire Social - Yorkshire Air Museum, Elvington near York ( arranged by YorkshireHill)

August 12th-AITP Audis in the park. This year sees this show in its tenth year --A2oc has been at this show from the first one. This show has been super popular and holds the club record for highest number of A2's with 42 cars on our stand. The club has also won best club stand and also one member was awarded top5 car on display with his black votex equipped A2FSI. http://www.audisinthepark.co.uk For this event we will be staying at Holiday inn Corby. Please note if buying advanced tickets to select A2oc on the club selection options.

October 13th-ADI Audi driver international show at castle combe circuit http://www.audidriverinternational.co.uk Back to october for this great day out that offers not only club stands but track action. Audi have demo cars with Audi test drivers and some lucky people get to go out for full speed laps in the R8 RS4 etc. For this show we are staying at Premier inn Swindon west.

If you plan to attend and looking for a hotel i suggest booking early to get the best price and to ensure a room as some shows the hotels are super busy. There will be evening meals at most shows and details will be in the event thread rather than here.
Yvonne and I look forward to seeing you all this coming year, if you are new please try a social its great to see so many A2's together and i will say again ALL A2'S ARE WELCOME SO DO NOT THINK YOURS IS NOT WORTH "SHOWING" All events are family friendly.

More events to be added once finalised.

Great to see these diary dates Mike. As is always the case, I can't wait for the social season to begin. I'm looking forward to meeting old and new friends alike and seeing the fleet of A2s lined up once again.

It also sounds like there could be a LOT of new faces too.

I hope that the new members realise that they just need to bring their A2 regardless of condition, we welcome all.

It doesn't need to be a show car or anything special (all A2s are special!!!)

Hi - just to let people know that for AITP, the holiday Inn Corby appears to be fully booked now, as is the Premier Inn. . Having had a bit of a google, it appears that there is some huge international dog show on at Rockingham Castle the same weekend. I'll have a look to see what other places are available for anyone who hasn't booked yet (last year i booked in April and it was fine, so i think it is the dog show that is causing the problem)

For the VATM show you would all be better off staying at the Winnersh Travelodge which is a less than 5 minute walk from the Holiday Inn as it is less than half the price with rooms starting from only £39 where as the Holiday Inn their rooms are from £97.
