Hi all, I'm Barrow based on the edge of Lake District and I would love to join you all with this event being on my doorstep, (eons ago I used to be audi club member in Poland and twice travelled lots of km to Germany for one of the biggest audi clubs event based in Kronach), due to family arrangements and duties I can't join you fully but wish to be for some bits of it if I could.

Would be great to see you. Mandy has put the itinerary in so please do feel free to come and find us when you can. I dont think we will be hard to miss! 😁
 
I`ll be around at home near Arnside all weekend if anyone needs help in an emergency, A2 related or otherwise. Trying to think what I`ve got to loan. Spare Battery, Battery Charger, Spare Wheel, Ignition Coils, Tools etc. May be able to join you at Motor Museum for the trip around Coniston.

Don't want to get to excited, it's looking good 🤞

Hi,

I'm very late to this, but would love to come along with my 2001 1.4 on Saturday just for the day, if that's OK. I'd join in the fun at the Lakeland Motor Museum at 10.30. Let me know if I need to do anything else - otherwise, look forward to seeing everyone there.

Cheers,

Steve W

That would be lovely. We will meet you there. @RZX - could you add Steve to the list for Motor Museum please?

Brilliant, we are being asked to park in the overflow carpark, which is just passed the main carpark on the opposite side.
 
Hot off the press. Little Atom went for a cam belt kit water pump, air con regas, tracking and MOT today after being off the road for almost 2 years, still plenty to do (new dog bone due Thurs) but it's now looking good to go for Sat with a new MOT (no advisories).
Looking forward to seeing you all. 😁
Stan.
 
Hoping to join the short drive to Arnside and Silverdale but we`re already at Arnside. Carr Bank anyway. Join the Coniston Rundfahrt.

Dilemma is which Car as you are going to Lakeland Motor Museum and we are Lakeland Historic Car Club Members. A2, 1966 Beetle, 1972 VW Type 3 Variant ? Might even manage the Trough of Bowland run. All dependant on demands of Grandchildren though !

Bridge House Farm Tea Rooms have Classic Car Nights by the way. 3rd Thursday every Month. Summer only, so next one is 15th June.

Sunderland Point - Friday 2nd June - Tomorrow Afternoon!

To all those who are arriving in the Morecambe Bay area tomorrow...

We're experiencing exceptionally low tides at the moment. The vast sands of Morecambe Bay are currently exposed even at high tide. As such, the isolated village at Sunderland Point, just a mile or two beyond my house, will be accessible.

At 4pm tomorrow, you'll find me in the car park opposite The Globe Hotel in Overton. This car park is the beginning of the causeway to Sunderland Point. I'll be there, ready to take people across the causeway. I have the use of a 7-seater VW Touran that won't mind getting covered in tidal mud, meaning that you needn't worry about your A2 getting filthy. I'm happy to drive across the causeway as many times as is necessary, so there's no limit to the numbers able to attend.

The address of The Globe is...
40 Main Street, Overton, LA3 3HF

The car park coordinates are...
https://www.google.co.uk/maps/place/54°00'51.9"N+2°51'58.2"W/@54.014425,-2.8668047,19z/

For those staying in and around Bolton-le-Sands (where the Friday night meal is taking place), Mandy and Martin (@RZX) will be guiding people along Morecambe promenade to The Globe car park, where you'll meet up with me. Departure from The Royal Hotel in Bolton-le-Sands is at 3:30pm.

Sunderland Point is very picturesque and historically interesting, so I'd encourage anyone without prior plans to join us. The plan is to spend about an hour at Sunderland Point, which will give everyone a chance to see its sights but still have plenty of time to prepare for Friday's evening meal in Bolton-le-Sands.

I look forward to seeing as many of you as possible tomorrow afternoon. :)

Let the fun begin!
