First M3W Winter Social get together.

First M3W Winter Social get together. - 07/11/18 04:59 PM

Hi Guys,
Recent discussions amongst the group led to interest in a winter social gathering. I think this shows what a great mix of people there are now using their mogs and wanting to meet up regularly. It is appreciated that during winter it may be prudent to leave the Mog in the garage and attend in other transport and that is fine.

Having chatted with Chris99 about dates/venues we have come up with an initial idea of the weekend of Friday 1st February to Sunday 3rd February. A two night hotel stay.
Of course you may come just for the one night if time is restricted. Feedback required if the date suits or not ASAP

The proposed venue for this first winter get together is the interesting town of Cirencester in the Cotswolds. The plan is for one evening to be a visit to an Indian Restaurant for dinner with traditional on the other evening. Local area visits during the day.

Before I firm up where we stay I need to know who is interested in joining us for what we hope will be the start of an annual post Xmas get together. So please post on here initially if you are up for this and the date suits. As usual copy and paste the page.

Hi Rob,
Good to see your interest, in the light of the Sporting Section AGM at the weekend I suppose we have to call you SIR now ?
Anyhow well done, your valiant efforts are prodding the five speeders ever more at the vintage Morgans.
I need to know if you are going to be firm on coming for both nights, the hotel is filling up rapidly now and I will be sending you a personal e-mail.

Re: First M3W Winter Social get together. - 04/12/18 04:54 PM

Hi Guys and Gals,
Thanks for supporting the get together.
All arrangements now finalised.
Arrive at the hotel Fri afternoon.
Check in, drinks in the bar and just chill out and chat.
Dinner at the Hotel Friday evening. (Eau De Vie ordered)

Saturday, leisurely breakfast, look around town with a couple of places we could visit later on during the day and have lunch.

A table for 20+ is booked at Indian Rasoi nearby for Sat night, 1945 hrs. They come highly recommended and talking to the owner last night are looking forward to us eating there. Looking forward to the get together !

My weekend plans have changed now and it looks as though I might be able to join you on Saturday during the day (not sure about the evening though). Would you be so kind as to PM me the details Ian, so that I can see if there's room at the hotel should the option work out for me, or indeed just to see where you'll all be?

Thanks.

Hi Guys,

We are hoping to attend in a Mog. with a choice of three 3 wlrs or the +4 probably one with a heater. So either the F4 or +4 methinks.

BBC is saying sleet and snow which should mean warm and sunny given their usual accuracy innocent

I'm assuming tin-top but will make a late call if it's M3W friendly.

Re: First M3W Winter Social get together. - 24/01/19 04:31 AM

Beautiful sunny day (and 19 degrees) here in HK! Our flight back gets in next Friday morning and then weโ€™ll be swapping out our warm weather clothes for cold weather ones and heading down in the mid to late afternoon. Given the time difference with HK, think we may well be nodding off during the dinner on the Friday night! Looking forward to catching up with you all. ๐Ÿ˜Š

I'm hoping next Fri is a Poets* day in which case eta late afternoon or early eve.

If the weather (and lack of salt) ok for the Mog then it's an afternoon off and eta mid/late afternoon.

Re: First M3W Winter Social get together. - 26/01/19 03:57 PM

Maria and I plan to visit The Classic Motor Hub, Old Walls, Ablington, GL7 5NX about 1430 to 1445 on Friday afternoon. We were hoping to visit on Sat but they are closed winter weekends. it is very close to Cirencester, head for BiBury and it is on the RAF Air Force Base. If you are in time meet us there. Looks interesting enough, cars and bikes on display.
We expect to be back at the hotel by about 1600 or just after.
The Hotel bar is open all afternoon,evening and is quite popular with the locals late afternoon. Several good beers on tap too.
All your dinner orders are in for Friday evening, we expect to eat around 1930 ish. We are being joined by two couples who live locally for dinner
I will have copies of what you all ordered ! For Saturday I have a list of interesting places to see in Cirencester and a little further afield for those up for it. We can have a conflab about this.
Of course the weather may dictate how far we get on sat.
Dinner is booked with Indian Rasoi for 1945 Sat night.

Have a good and safe journey to Cirencester whatever transport you come in.
Ian

Hi All

We are setting off on Saturday morning and expect to get there late morning/lunchtime and would like to meet up before you all get back to the hotel late afternoon.

If you can keep me up to speed as to what's happening on Saturday we can catch up en-route.

Best regards.

Last minute change of plans: we will not be coming on Friday now but will join you mid to late afternoon on the Saturday (when hopefully we will not be quite so jet lagged). Let me know nearer the time what your plans are for Saturday afternoon so we can try and join you depending on timing (and snow permitting!). Otherwise, weโ€™ll just meet up with you at the hotel. Have a good time on Friday night and donโ€™t drink all the eau de vie!!!
Posted By: Chris99

Re: First M3W Winter Social get together. - 31/01/19 09:30 AM

Sounds a sensible plan given the weather forecast here.

Have a safe flight and see you on Sat wine
Posted By: ShaunD

Re: First M3W Winter Social get together. - 31/01/19 01:38 PM

Thanks, Chris. The reason behind not coming on the Friday is that I have the opportunity on Saturday morning to play hockey for my team and then to umpire my sonโ€™s teamโ€™s match immediately afterwards. If it snows on Friday in Oxford, then we will reverse about and come on Friday anyway as the hockey will be off on the Saturday. It will all depend on the snow gods!

Re: First M3W Winter Social get together. - 01/02/19 08:45 PM

My plans have had to change too, on account of man-flu the likes of which Iโ€™ve not enjoyed for a long time. Hope the snow has not kept you all away from Cirencester, although I wager youโ€™ve had (or will have) to deal with a decent pile of it anytime soon.

Re: First M3W Winter Social get together. - 06/02/19 12:55 PM

Hi Guys,
Echoing your words, what a great weekend. Made great by the people who came, by now all good friends together. Maria and I love these get togethers so much. The unexpected joining together of The Chrissardo's was a delight to see. Consumated in an Indian Restaurant too !
Despite atrocious weather all those who booked to enjoy the weekend came and did so, full marks though to Rob and Petra for driving the Mog in the snow.
Where do we go from here ? Well we have the fully booked Bridgnorth weekend and MTWC opening run in April,
Albert Ball / Montlhery in May,
Goggles and Gauntlets early June, in beautiful Devon.
MTWC Dutch Run in June,
MTWC Viking Run to Sweden in August
MMC Thrill on the Hill at Prescott in August,
Grindelwald.Swiss trip in September and
2nd End of Season bash early October.
So not exactly a quiet year.
Watch for announcements giving firmer details of the above and for 2020 there will be,
a 2nd Winter Social Weekend,
a summer special Morgan TT week on the Isle of Man( not TT week)
plus a special G&G week long celebration of 75 years of the MTWC hopefully incorporating All Morgans Day at Blenheim Palace
and the other regular do's we all love so much.
Something to interest everyone in fact. If you are not yet one of our regular attendees, why not join us and have fun ? You and your Morgan will be in good company.
Contact us to be added to our e-mailing list.
