    England & Scotland Joint Meet??

    The North East & North Yorkshire have a meet on the 3rd Sunday of the month. We are hoping to get out this Sunday, 19th October, and had considered the possibility of a run to the borders, possibly Carter Bar, to check all was well in the North.

    If any members in Scotland would like to meet up for a general chat and possibly a short blast around the countryside emulating the Border Reivers then could you shout up.

    Best regards,

    Hi Ian,
    Shouting up! Cobra goes off the road at the end of the month so I would like to get as much running prior to this. Where's Carters Bar? East side I suppose. I'll away google maps it.

    John,

    Carter Bar is where the A68 crosses the border. Still only a suggestion at this stage so if you have anywhere else that is on the border shout up again.

    Regards,

    Kiel,

    You need to twist a few arms and get some Scottish CRC members & their cars out on Sunday then blag a shotgun ride.

    Hope to meet up again soon - if not on Sunday then possibly 9th November when Knockhill have another track day (definitely got the bug!!!)

    We'll keep an eye out on the forecast

    Although two meets on the trot at Knockhill will be asking a lot

    Well the weather forecast is promising for Sunday so unless there are sudden changes for the worse there will be a raiding party heading up to Carter Bar on Sunday.

    We would aim to be up at Carter Bar for about 1 pm and will park up in the view point car park. It would be prudent to exchange mobile numbers in case of problems or last minute changes so could anyone who is planning to come PM me their mobile number or, if you are coming in convoy, one number would suffice.

    Hope to see some friendly faces across the border on Sunday.

    Best regards,
    Ian

    PS For the avoidance of doubt I will be the one in the Tutu

    Hi Ian,
    Looks like it would be a full day for me to get there/back from Crosshouse,Ayrshire. Going the boring way via M8 and down I would be 2.5 hours according to googly maps. Going the preferred scenic way over 3 hours to get there. Probably a lovely drive over but I've done a couple of long rally type events over the last month so probably unlikely this time for me.
    Pity, Cos that would've been a good wee meet up.
