North West/North Wales 2016 'cars and drink' meet

Post by raynoon » Tue Sep 13, 2016 8:39 pm

im now looking at dates and locations for this years cars and coffee meet, the inaugural event last year was a great success with 4 cars in attendance at New Brighton.

If you have any suggestions please let me know, I'm thinking maybe further into North Wales this year?

How about somewhere near one of those nice big beaches in N Wales? Tywyn, Barmouth, Criccieth, Newborough, Harlech, Llandudno etc. Lots of choice.

It's years since I've been that far west, but might be tempted to stay and make a weekend break of it or something. Crossed my mind a good venue might attract more folk maybe?

I can recall tanking my multi coloured GS across Tywyn sands many years ago on a hot day! Young nutter in a Citroen!

Cheers

All of those suggestions are excellent, we need to find some nice deserted A or B roads with lots of undulations and dips for a short drive and a nice sunny seaside spot for parking and photo opportunity.

Have you driven on the so called 'Evo Triangle' in Snowdonia? I've done that with Citroenmad before and it was pretty exciting!

I'll keep an eye on this topic, I could potentially be persuaded to dive up and coincide it with a long weekend holiday. It's been ages since I've been to north Wales.
