Finished Cumbria Meet - Lake Windermere (29th July 2012)

Discussion in 'Events and Meetings' started by ash d-series, Wednesday 30th May, 2012.

    The meet will be a Honda only meet, it will take place at the Low wood watersports centre between Windermere and Ambleside at 11am on Sunday July 29th 2012.
    The plan for the meet is to meet up for a couple of hours and then go for a drive, we will print off direction sheets for everybody so you won't find out where the drive is too until you turn up but i can gaurantee it will be a very special drive with us having many of the best roads in the UK, it will end at a pub for a couple of drinks and some food if you fancy it.
    The drive isn't compulsory, your more than welcome to just turn up for the meet.
    We would appreciate as much support as possible with this as we know the Honda scene in the North is nothing like the south but theres a lot of people that seem to be craving a bit more of a scene around here and if the turnout is good this time i'm more than happy to arrange some more in the future in various locations. Plus it would be good to meet a few more local faces.
    I'll be posting this on all the Honda forums i'm registered too but if your on one and don't see it posted feel free to copy the thread and repost it on other Honda forums to spread the word.
    There will be a few ground rules.
    The watersports centre have been good enough to let us use there carpark so please treat it with respect i.e put any rubbish in the bins and no wheel spins,handbrake turns or dohnuts if you have an S2000 or NSX lol. Basically just don't drive like an idiot in their carpark.

    As for the directions the postcode for the Low wood hotel is LA23 1PL, the watersports centre is on the opposite side of the road on the waterfront, You need to go in the gates and just follow the road around to the end, there are 2 car parks and the meet will be taking place in the furthest car park from the Entrance.
    and just incase you need any additional information:

    A few people have already confirmed or expressed interest but feel free to add your name to the list so we can get a rough idea of people.

    Hi guys sorry I`ve been unavailable recently had a number of family and personal problems which meant I`ve not had time to get here.
    Ash I don`t know if I can get up for this one but if you are in the Windemere area I`m up this weekend staying at the Sun Inn at Troutbeck then july 18- 22nd I`m up staying at the Wateredge Inn at Ambleside so if you fancy a pint pop down just look for the gorgeous Arctic Blue Pearl Accord Type-S.

    Missus is away, so potentially, I am up for it. It will all depend on work commitments. It'd be nice to see cars from other clubs.

    Will let you know for definite closer to the date if that is ok.

    Oh nice. More and more people getting the new one. I think I might wait for 9th Generation :Wink:

    Well it would definitely be good to see a few of you there, i think the accord forums seem to be overlooked when arranging mixed honda meets. A lot of the ones i've been to i never seem to see many Accords or Preludes so it would be nice to see some make an appearance

    Some lovely looking car there. Weather didn't look the best though :Ohdear:

    It was a bit grey but to be honest it only actually rained for like 2 minutes and it was dry for the rest of the day. There was quite a lot more cars that turned up after these pics were taken but nobody has uploaded any yet
